How about the original cast recording to the 1974 Beatles themed musical?

From wikipedia

John, Paul, George, Ringo...& Bert is a 1974 play by Willy Russell based on the story of The Beatles. It premiered at the Everyman Theater in Liverpool in May 1974 where it ran for eight weeks and later moved to the Lyric Theatre in London in August 1974, where it ran for a year and was later named "Best Musical of 1974" by the Evening Standard and London Critics' awards.[1] It featured the music of the Beatles performed by Barbara Dickson. It also briefly ran in the United States in 1985.[2]
According to an interview with Creem magazine, George Harrison stated that he saw the play with Derek Taylor and greatly disliked it.[3], he walked out while attending the London premiere and withdrew his permission to use his song "Here Comes The Sun".[4] It was replaced with "Good Day Sunshine".[5]
