How Police Recovered Stolen Beatles Tapes

Five hundred tapes of the Beatles’ recording sessions from 1969 that were stolen in 1970 have been recovered in a warehouse near Amsterdam. “While the tapes, enough to fill 15 CDs, will be returned to their legal owner, record company EMI, they could prove to be a source of further tension between the two surviving band members and the estates of their former colleagues, Harrison and Lennon. The Get Back sessions were dark, tense days for the Beatles and the tapes display the most intimate, and potentially embarrassing, details of that tension.”
