Fab trivia: Beatles’ accordionist (!) passes

Shirley-evans-579081038 Thanks to one of the sharp-eyed souls at The Velvet Rope for passing along a Liverpool Daily Post story detailing some exquisite minutiae — the minutest of minutiae, really — about the late accordionist Shirley Evans, who appeared in the Beatles' film "Magical Mystery Tour" and recorded an unreleased instrumental with the band.

Evans, who apparently died this week at 78, was a fellow native of Liverpool and was well established in show biz by the time she was enlisted for the Fab Four's ill-fated movie, first screened on Dec. 16, 1967, to almost universally hideous reviews. She appeared in the film, squeezing out singalong renditions of some antique standards for passengers on the tour bus.
