Paul McCartney 1968 “A Is For Apple" Handwritten Letter.

Truly remarkable content abounds in this handwritten letter from “Paul and the Moptops.” Consisting of a two-page handwritten letter to 'Drew and Dy' (two unknown artists) inviting them to record for Apple Records.

The letter reads: "Dear Gentlemen, Your songs grow on all that hear them! I hope you are pressing on. Frankie Rabbit and Taurus are the current favourites here. Also we like you singing them, so we'll be getting together soon probably to do something – like record. Thanks, Paul and the Mop Tops.”

Paul’s nod to the Beatles previous incarnation, “the mop tops”, is both historic and humorous, considering that they were knee-deep in the production of the White Album at the time. But what makes this letter truly incredible, at the bottom Paul has hand-drawn an Apple logo with the inscription “A is for Apple.” Clearly, Paul’s enthusiasm for his newly formed company is quite apparent.

This letter represents everything Apple was supposed to be, a haven for unknown artists. The ‘Drew & Dy’ two songs, produced by Paul, were never released. Oversized writing in very bold black marker on two 7.75" x 8.25" pages. Each page has multiple mailing folds with aging and some surface blemishes, particularly along the left upper border area.

Authentication: Frank Caiazzo Letter of Authenticity and a Gotta Have Rock and Roll Certificate of Authenticity.
