The Voices of Classic Rock collection has just kicked off an NFT auction for rare interviews with each Beatles member.
The Voices of Classic Rock archive is home to more than 650 historic interviews and radio shows with famous artists. The collection features interviews recorded between 1964 and 2008.
The auction began on Monday the 6th. It marks the first time that Voices of Classic Rock has entered the NFT market. Unsurprisingly, this is set to be the first of many auctions to come.
Four separate rare interviews of the Beatles are available for minting. These are Paul McCartney’s on ‘Chaos And Creation In The Backyard’, John Lennon’s on ‘A Day In The Life’, George Harrison on ‘Abbey Road’ and Ringo Starr’s on ‘His Lost Medallion’. In addition to the .WAV file, each clip comes with a unique portrait of the member.
These rare Beatles interviews are the first of many offerings from VOCR
Jonathan Firstenberg, the managing director of VOCR, said, “The extensive variety of Beatles interviews that we have in our collection are, perhaps, our most comprehensive and valuable assets – that is why we wanted to launch with John, Paul, George, and Ringo – the ultimate Classic Rock Stars!”
“The owners of VOCR acquired this remarkable archive from its creator, Kathleen Wittbold, because they understood that there would always be future growth in the value of audio content for all things related to classic rock music.”
Firstenberg goes on the explain that all of the interviews contained within VOCR are unique. As a result, each NFT, including these rare Beatles interviews, will continue to grow in rarity and value over time.
The Beatles now join the list of musicians who are reaping the benefits of NFTs. Without a doubt, this auction continues to cement NFTs as part and parcel of the future of the music industry.
