'Happy Christmas Beatle People' is the name of a new box set from The BEATLES (due Dec. 15) that, for the first time, will make all 7 of the Beatles' Fan Club Holiday messages commercially available. The recordings, a combination of holiday sentiment, songs, and general Beatle zaniness, were issued only to fan club members every December from 1963 to 1969, and were also sent as a compilation in 1970 following the Beatles' break up.The original holiday greetings, which were issued on a 7-inch 'flexidisc,' will now be on 7-inch vinyl, and will feature the original artwork and a booklet with vintage fan club content.  Pre-ordering for the box set is available. At the same time, Beatles' fans can also grab the anniversary reissue of 'Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band' in 2 new, additional formats: the 'Deluxe Edition' will be offered in hi-def digital audio, and 'Stereo Mix' will be issued as 2 single-album vinyl editions, available as a picture disc, or on 180-gram vinyl.
