Oh what joy! I was worried it might not live up to the billing......but it does!

It does have an intriguing line-up, just hope it will be released on its own and not remain in the box.

The cd tracks are on youtube for those who havent heard them (hopefully the links below are right). None are the standard released versions.

My Sweet Lord Demo

The Light That Has Lighted The World

All Things Must Pass

Behind That Locked Door

Awaiting On You All

Woman Don't You Cry For Me

Let It Be Me

Mama You Been On My Mind

I'd Have You Any Time

Run Of The Mill

Thanks for posting! I just fall more in love with All Things Must Pass each time I hear a new version.

Completely agree about ATMP, this version is a great bridge between the february '69 demo on Anthology 3 and the officially released version on ATMP. Every time you hear a new version you wish that John & Paul had shown less contempt during the January '69 Get Back Sessions and helped record a decent attempt.

Thanks so much for sharing this, I haven't listened to all but that All Things Must Pass version is just just amazing.

Some, if not all, of these also appear in the documentary (I presume they all do but can't be sure). I really like the My Sweet Lord demo when he hasn't quite worked out *that* chord, and is feeling around for it on the guitar.

Did anyone notice if this cd got released on its own and not just in the box; found two copies in two different stores in Glasgow, both being sold for £6 each but have always though you had to get the box to get the cd?

I don't know what it was called in the DVD box set, but I know it was released separately in May 2012 as Early Takes: Volume 1. I remember it being mentioned in the reviews that it had originally been in the Deluxe DVD set, with them wondering if it signalled the beginning of a series of George outtakes/demos releases. There's no Volume 2 yet though!

Yeah that's the one and name. Completely missed or forgot its release outside of the box. Thanks mja.
