A letter written by George Harrison has been sold for $20,000 by L.A. rock collectibles seller Record Mecca. In the missive, dated 1966, Harrison writes to Atlanta DJ Paul Drew in the lead up to the recording of Revolver.

He says that the Beatles considered dumping longtime producer George Martin in order to record with Jim Stewart at Stax Studios in Memphis.

"We would all like it a lot," Harrison wrote, "but too many people get insane with money ideas at the mention of the word 'Beatles,' and so it fell through!"

In the past, Stax insiders, according to Record Mecca, have claimed that the Beatles wanted to book time at the studio but canceled because of "security concerns."
