Celebrated Mr. K, I'll have to give Last Rites a try. :)

My own attempt at a 1970 Beatles album is something I call Hot As Sun:

Side 1

1. Oo You (McCartney) 
2. It Don’t Come Easy (Ringo single)
3. That Would Be
Something (McCartney) 
4. Isolation (John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band) 
5. Every Night (McCartney) 
6. What Is Life? (All Things Must Pass

Side 2
1. Love (John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band) 
2. I Live For You (All Things Must Pass outtake) 
3. Valentine Day (McCartney) 
4. Well Well Well (John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band) 
5. Apple Scruffs (All Things Must Pass
6. I Found Out (John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band) 
7. Maybe I’m Amazed (McCartney)

I described the thinking that went into this track list on my blog a few years ago: http://www.allyngibson.net/?p=1509

It's an interesting game to play, putting together a 1970-ish Beatles album.  Stephen Baxter built a short story, "The Twelfth Album," around the concept.  (His running order is interesting.)

I'm recently into John's Watching The Wheels. The drums and the piano in the intro is fantastic. A bit 70-ish but good 70-ish.

Although for years I thought it was Watching the Whales. I think I have Mr. Big's same hearing problem. a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

I started a thread for this but figured I'd post it here also.

 

I wrote a book in the format of the 33 & 1/3 books about The Beatles doing one more album after Abbey Road. I tried to keep as much factual info as possible then shoehorn in the story around it. I put it up on sendspace for anyone to download. It has the book (word file), the album (mp3s) and the album artwork (jpegs) in a zip file. Please feel free to let me know what you think. The book also has pictures that I created to make it as real as possible. Enjoy!

I'm not talking about Abbey Road or Let it Be.  (The debate over which of those two was really the last will never end).

I'm talking about an album that could have emerged in 1970 if the Beatles had held it together for one last effort.  So I imagined an album like the White Album, with the guys' pretty much working independently and then bringing it all together.  I kept it to a single disc (rather than a double LP.

This is stuff they all recorded at that time…I stayed away from 1971, which would have allowed me to use great stuff like "Happy Xmas (War is Over), "Imagine", and "Too Many People".

Obviously, I have too much time on my hands, but I think I'll actually try and compile this collection on a CD for my own jollies and see how it comes off.

All the band members have their moments, including Ringo.  The one thing that jumps out at me is that for the first time in years, McCartney's work takes a back seat to Lennon and Harrison. Nevertheless, I think this would have been an awesome album.

Anyway, the lost album is Last Rites.  Feel free to critique both the selection and the order.  Here goes:

Last Rites

 

Side One:

1)     What Is Life (Harrison)

2)     Another Day (McCartney)

3)     Sentimental Journey (Homer, Green, and Brown, performed by Starr)

4)     Mother (Lennon)

5)     Power To The People (Lennon)

6)     Maybe I’m Amazed (McCartney)

Side Two:

1)     Instant Karma (Lennon)

2)     My Sweet Lord (Harrison)

3)     That Would be Something (McCartney)

4)     If Not For You (B. Dylan, performed by Harrison)

5)     Isn’t It a Pity (Harrison)

6)     Give Peace A Chance (Lennon)

7)     My Mummy’s Dead (Lennon)

Resurrecting an old thread because I just stumbled across The Twelfth Album on Wikipedia.

"The Twelfth Album" is an alternative history short story by Stephen Baxter, first published in Interzone in April 1998. It is about an imaginary twelfth album recorded by The Beatles, called God. The album features songs that were written and recorded as solo projects by the group's members in reality, but in a parallel universe where The Beatles did not split up following the release of Let It Be, resulting in these songs being recorded by the group. In the universe where it was recorded, the Earth was apparently destroyed by a hail of comets, which shocks the two middle-aged men who find the album in their deceased workmate's room on board the docked Titanic Hotel in Liverpool.

In reality, The Beatles did release twelve albums; the story ignores one of them, Yellow Submarine, because it is considered by the author more a George Martin score than a Beatles' album.*

Webcomic Subnormality alluded to the concept, though its version of the album was titled Imagine a Photograph of a Passing Jet.

Side 1

"Give Me Some Truth", actually released on John Lennon's Imagine album.

"It Don't Come Easy", from Ringo Starr's album Ringo's Best (Apple, 1971)

"Every Night", from Paul McCartney's album McCartney

"All Things Must Pass", from George Harrison's album All Things Must Pass.

"Child Of Nature", a Lennon song auditioned for The White Album that later had its lyrics rewritten to become "Jealous Guy" from Imagine.

"Back Seat of My Car", a McCartney duet with Linda McCartney from their album Ram. On the God album, the song is a traditional Beatles three part harmony.

Side 2

"Instant Karma!", the famous Lennon single.

"Isn't It A Pity", a Harrison song, auditioned during the Get Back/Let It Be sessions, later two versions were recorded and released on All Things Must Pass.

"Junk", a McCartney song auditioned during the Get Back/Let It Be sessions, later recorded for McCartney.

"Wah-Wah", a Harrison solo song released on All Things Must Pass.

"God", a Lennon song from Plastic Ono Band.

"Maybe I'm Amazed", a McCartney song from McCartney. This version, in the story, is a full Beatles recording, with Lennon providing vocals

*He seems to have excluded MMT too, although that wasn't originally an album in the UK. The Fourteenth Album might have been a better title.

Interesting idea, but it's weird to envision any Beatles "12th" album including God, let alone being the title track. What with it's "I don't believe in Beatles" and "I just believe in me, Yoko and me" lyrics.
