August 06, 2008|From the Associated Press

A newly discovered tape of the Beatles laughing and chatting during an early recording session has sold for $23,446, an auction house reported Tuesday.

Cameo Auctioneers said the reel-to-reel tape was recorded in 1964 and had recently been discovered by a man in northern England while he was clearing out his father's attic.

The tape features John Lennon and Paul McCartney collapsing into fits of giggles as they try to finish the ballad "I'll Follow the Sun."
