Rare 1965 Ivor Novello Award presented to The Beatles for "We Can Work It Out" to be auctioned
Extremely Rare 1965 Ivor Novello Award Presented to EMI Records/The Beatles for "We Can Work It Out".

LOS ANGELES, CA.- The Ivor Novello award presented to EMI Records/Paul McCartney and John Lennon in 1966 for The Beatles' 1965 hit single We Can Work It Out will be auctioned by Robert Edward Auctions. Bidding runs from July 26-August 18. Interested bidders may participate in the auction online.

The prestigious Ivor Novello award was presented to EMI Records/Paul McCartney and John Lennon in 1966 for The Beatles' 1965 hit single We Can Work It Out. The Ivor Novello awards were first issued in 1956 and are presented annually by the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers, and Authors (BASCA) in a number of categories.

The award being auctioned was issued for the category "The 'A' Side of the Record Issued in 1965 Which Achieved the Highest Certified British Sales." The single was composed by Paul McCartney and John Lennon and was recorded at EMI Studios in London on October 20, 1965, during The Beatles sessions for its Rubber Soul album. It was released as a single in December 1965, and it quickly skyrocketed to the top of the charts in Britain, the USA, Australia, Canada, and Ireland.

The solid-bronze statuette, which is sculpted in the form of Euterpe, the muse of lyric poetry, stands upon a bronze platform that reads "An Ivor Novello Award." The wooden base below features an engraved plaque that reads "E.M.I. Records LTD./For Its Parlophone Recording Of/We Can Work It Out/1965." This was the third straight Ivor Novello award presented to Paul McCartney and John Lennon of The Beatles in this particular category, with the songs She Loves You and Can't Buy Me Love, winning, respectively, the previous two years. Future recognition in this category for the duo would be achieved by the songs Yellow Submarine (1967), Hey Jude (1969), and Get Back (1970).

Bidding began at $5,000.
