There are albums that in a way or another should have been or may have been released but never have. How is it with the Beatles? I have been thinking of a hypothetical album with the singles – both sides – from Day Tripper up to Hey Jude. That album would be even better than Revolver.

In general, can you find ways to define other unreleased albums by the Beatles? For example, they could have released an experimental album in 1967 with tunes like You Know My Name and Carnival Of Light.

There are a great many outtakes from the Get Back/Let It Be era – they could have compiled a few albums worth out of those. Some of the unreleased Glyn Johns versions are worth hearing, and the group performed literally dozens of songs over the sessions.

I'd also like to see an album made up of the songs Lennon and McCartney gave away during the 1960s: Bad To Me, World Without Love, Step Inside Love and so on. It would make a nice collection, particularly if L-M demos or Beatles recordings of the same songs (eg I Call Your Name, Do You Want To Know A Secret, I Wanna Be Your Man) could be included alongside them.

Carnival Of Light, though – I'd really love to hear that. Apple should seriously consider another Rarities album, with all the stuff that was blocked for Anthology, including the 27-minute Helter Skelter, full Revolution 1 and so on. And if they didn't want to release them as albums, why not put them out as digital-only releases, or even freebies? It would make the fans ever so happy Laughing

Well, Not Guilty and What's that New Marry Jane (which was added with terrible sounds) could have been a non-album single (but that would make the 2nd time they didn't hit the top on the charts), just like Pink Floyd's Scream Thy Last Scream coupled with Vegetable Man. So there still are unreleased records, like the Get Back Sessions, Phil could have taken the improvised songs to a masterpiece (except the horrible orchestrations), just like Rocker, at the Get Back album.

 

Welcome to the forum, Wahlroos. BTW… Great Name.

Purple Chick compiled a bootleg with all the songs that Lennon/McCartney gave away including a Ringo song and there might even be an official release out there somewhere.

There is an album sitting waiting for release; the Esher demo's. Many of the demos are different in some way from the final versions released on The Beatles as well as there being a handful of unreleased tracks eg Child Of Nature and Sour Milk Sea. Would make a fabulous acoustic album.

Another could have been album is the 'new' Yellow Submarine tracks with the a/b singles not yet on uk and us albums pre '69; I'm Down, Rain, Paperback Writer, Lady Madonna, The Inner Light, Hey Jude, Revolution. Would have made a far better album than Yellow Submarine.

 

And for a freak out lp side 1: Helter Skelter (27 min). Side 2: Mary Jane, Carnival Of Light, Revolution 1 (unedited) (total side 2 time: 31 mins roughly).

Maybe it's time for me to re-upload "Alternate Hystery Tour"!:

The links will surely be inactive at the moment but I can update them later this evening…
