The sensible thing to do would be to release just the previously unavailable stuff. And give me a break with marbles! You are commenting using your WordPress. You are commenting using your Google account. You are commenting using your Twitter account. You are commenting using your Facebook account.

Oh God, No. A longer and higher quality version of this session was released by the HMC label in Starting in , Apple began officially reissuing the Beatles catalog on CD. Several bootleggers stepped in to fill this void by offering digital copies of their own needle drops of the entire Beatles catalogue, typically using premium vinyl pressings played and digitised with high-end audio equipment.
While these unauthorized copies are not bootlegs as commonly defined, their creation and distribution channels overlap with bootleg products. The Beatles' official catalogue of their original stereo studio albums has since been issued via digital download through iTunes. A considerable amount of additional never-circulated Beatles material is believed to exist, either in private possession or studio vaults, as mentioned in documents and recollections.
From the group's early years, it has been reported that additional songs exist from the Quarrymen rehearsal tapes, including a Lennon—McCartney instrumental "Winston's Walk" and early versions of " When I'm Sixty-Four " and " Ask Me Why ". The tape includes several cover versions of songs not available elsewhere by the Beatles, including the Bruce Channel number one " Hey! McCartney bought the tape at a auction, and since none of it was used for Anthology , it has been assumed to be of poor sound quality.
Many demo recordings are known to have been made by the individual Beatles but have yet to become public. However, a small portion of "World Without Love" made its public debut in January during a series of Peter Asher concerts and has subsequently appeared in full elsewhere. Between the official Anthology releases and the numerous outtakes that have been bootlegged, many of the Beatles' most interesting studio recordings are available in some form.
Nevertheless, there are still recordings known to be in EMI's archives that have generated particular interest in their eventual release. One is " Carnival of Light ", an improvised minute vocal and sound collage that the Beatles created in early for an art festival; the recording was under consideration for Anthology , and McCartney has been an advocate for its release. Anthology 3 included only a edit of the take 2 from that day's work on the song; asked why a longer version wasn't issued, George Martin explained: "I think it gets boring.
Some recordings may no longer exist, if they ever existed originally. A Quarrymen rehearsal that was recorded at Colin Hanton 's home was taped over. BBC documentation shows that " Sheila " and two versions of " Three Cool Cats " were recorded and never broadcast, but the tapes were likely reused or discarded, a fate shared by some of the Beatles' studio session tapes prior to late Carl Perkins said that he joined the Beatles in the studio for a late night jam session on 1 June , but this was probably not taped.
Several Lennon—McCartney titles were mentioned in a letter from McCartney, including "Looking Glass", "Years Roll Along", and "Keep Looking That Way", but there is no evidence that tapes were ever made of those songs during rehearsals from that era. One final source of uncirculated recordings is the set of sessions held in — for the Anthology project. In addition to the two songs released, two other Lennon demos which have been bootlegged became the basis for additional work by the other three Beatles: " Now and Then " and " Grow Old With Me ".
A number of songs have been incorrectly claimed by bootleggers to be unreleased Beatles songs. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
