Zapple

Profile:
Zapple Records, an Apple Records subsidiary run by Barry Miles (2), a friend and ultimately biographer of Paul McCartney, was intended as an outlet for the release of spoken word and avant garde records. It was active from October 1968 until June 1969, and only two albums were released on the label, one by John Lennon & Yoko Ono (Unfinished Music No.2: Life With The Lions) and one by George Harrison (Electronic Sound). An album of readings by Richard Brautigan was planned for release as Zapple 3, and acetate copies were pressed, but, said Miles, 'The Zapple label was folded by Allen Klein before the record could be released. The first two Zapple records did come out. We just didn't have [Brautigan's record] ready in time before Klein closed it down. None of The Beatles ever heard it.'. Brautigan's record was eventually released as Listening To Richard Brautigan on Harvest Records. A planned Zapple release of a UK appearance by comedian Lenny Bruce was never completed, and the label was shut down by Allen Klein, apparently with the backing of John Lennon.
