Abbey Road Studio selling prints of George Martin's "Yesterday" score

You can order here. It's pricey, at $312, but nice.

This limited edition replica score comes from the Sir George Martin Collection and it features a hand numbered certificate of authentication with printed signature.

Presented in a handmade ribbon bound portfolio and numbered 1 to 500, Yesterday is the first track ever by The Beatles to feature a string quartet and a major radio hit at the time, its distinctive string arrangement by George Martin was recorded in Studio Two on June 14th 1965. Featuring Sir Paul McCartney on his Epiphone Texan acoustic guitar, accompanied by an understated but eloquent string section, Yesterday was a very important song for The Beatles, as well as the first time that they recorded with musicians from outside the group, paving the way for later sonic experimentation.
