Okay…I'm thinking about doing this as a regular thread that I'll update like every week or so of some of what I feel are Paul's best bootlegs, b-sides, and movie or collaboration songs. If you guys get tired of the thread, just tell me, and I will stop. The thread the other day on Yvonne gave me the idea. Feel free to post anything you come across if you want.

1. Mama's Little Girl

2. Oh Woman Oh Why?

3. Tragedy (cover)

4. A Love for You

5. My Soul (written by Nitin Sawhney with a little input from Paul, I think…Nitin said it was about Paul's feelings on Heather, but I'm not so sure.)

Crap…I'm not sure how to just embed the links. Help?

Well, they embedded fine. Just paste the link and it'll embed.
As for the topic at hand, I like it! It gives me a chance to get some more Paul, because there are gems in his work. Kedame, there's a b-side called something to the tune of "The Loveliest Thing", from I believe about 1989. Could you post it?

Thanks, SunKing! Sure, I know that one. It's definitely an earworm, but it's a nice little tune. I figured most people on here know at least a good bit of Paul's studio releases but probably not about unreleased tracks. This stuff circulates like mad amongst McCartney fans, and none of my fb friends appreciates any of the stuff I post. So here they shall be.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8Thanks! I think MJB had posted it before, but I hadn't heard that since. I remember why I love it – it's grand.

Thanks again!

Great idea for a thread. Paul has so many fantastic tracks that are either forgotten b-sides, unreleased or collaborations, easilly enough for a triple cd set.

 

  (The b-side to the wrongly and criminally slated We All Stand Together.)

 

 (Recorded in 1988. Issued on Beautiful Night cd single in 1997.)

 (Recorded in 1987. Issued on Beautiful Night cd single in 1997.)

 

One song i cant find online is the original fabulous version of Beautiful Night that was included within part 5 of Oobu Joobu on the Beautiful Night cd single #1. Paul rerecorded it for Flaming Pie.

Thanks, mith and meanmistermustard. I have a couple of the Oobu Joobu cds. I'll check later and see if that version of Beautiful Night is on there. One reason you may not be able to find it is because a couple of the cds are only one track long, with every single song on the same track number. There is no way to skip songs or upload them individually.

Yeah on the cd singles from flaming pie you had to scan thru each oobu joobu to get the extra complete track, I cut them up.

 

So Bad was not only a track on the Pipes of Peace album but the b-side of the Pipes of Peace single. Some very nice individual created a stripped mix which far outshines that version.

I don't have the Beautiful Night single…only Young Boy and Ecology Oobu Joobu.

I know So Bad is like the cheesiest song ever, but I love it, anyway!

I was wondering if we could have a sort of blanket topic with some Lennon demos as well. Here's one of my favorites.

If its going to be opened up, all in favour of that, it should also reach forth to George and Ringo. Therefore below is perhaps one of the best George songs so far unreleased – Nowhere To Go, demoed at the beginning of the ATMP sessions (tho to be fair every single demo from then could be included here. If you havent heard them all they are all on youtube and you really should check them out.).

 

(P.S. Erm does Ringo have any demos that can even be included?)

I have literally cried over the demos of this song/Real Life/Real Love. They are just so compelling. There are some really good videos on youtube about the evolution and splitting off of the two songs (Real Love and I'm Stepping Out). His voice is beautiful in the demos, and it makes me really sad that he hated his voice so badly that it's buried under effects in a lot of his songs.

I've got the Lost Lennon Tapes on cd, and there are many versions of this song on there.

Why? All of these songs are on youtube. No one is sharing illegal files that are not already available to the public elsewhere.

kedame - I love this thread. Since I am on the computer all day long at the office, it's the last thing in the world I want to be doing when I get home. I just can't sit here all night looking for videos. Now, you are giving me an easy option of just coming to this thread for the really cool not-so-mainstream stuff.

Thanks to everyone else for sharing as well.

Fabulous!

 A far better take of Jealous Guy than the one on Anthology

 I Lie Around, the B-side of Live and Let Die.

 

The brilliant Deep Blue, written during the time George's mum was in hospital with terminal cancer, a really cheerful tune with very depressed lyrics.

 The equally brilliant Miss O'Dell which was the b-side of Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth) (an alternate, not as good, non-laughter take can be heard here - the commercial version is far better. There is a very strong arguement to say that in the early 70's George was producing the better material of the ex-beatles).

I wouldn't call you an a..hole, but I do note that Kedame did reply to the first post not about Paul's songs. The other option would be moving this thread to Yesterday…And Today and make it a blanket thread. Either option would work.

I don't think you'd be an a-hole because I did intend for it to be just McCartney stuff…that said, I really don't mind all the Harrison and Lennon stuff, though. I like a lot of John's demos, and I don't know many of George's. However, I'm probably not going to post any of their demos, or really any of Paul's demos for completed songs, either. I just wanted to sort of do non-album tracks of Paul's that I am fond of. I have a whole list of them. If you guys want to move the thread, I won't be opposed to it, or we could start separate threads for John, George, and…erm, Ringo (if he has any unreleased stuff). I always like to hear new things, so either way would be great!

Thanks, everyone, for appreciating the thread…oh, and I love I Lie Around. I think the main vocals are Denny Laine, though. Paul adds some great vocals a little into the song. Sometimes, I am surprised when I listen to a song I think is all Paul, and when I listen closer, someone else is singing with him. "Used to Be Bad" from Flaming Pie is one that took me forever to figure out that it actually wasn't Paul in the first verse, but Steve Miller.

How do you make a Ringo bootleg interesting?

Stick George Cloud 9 mixes on it.

 

By the way whats happening with this thread? Is it just Paul or all 4? It is moving or staying, being split into separate threads for each beatle? In some ways it would make sense for it to be separate so people would find George rarities in the George section. But if all mixed in someone who is looking for a Paul rarity might discover George through listening to his rarities. And lets not forget Ringo. He has done some really good tracks. Ringo's Rotogravure is a good album, im being serious.

I don't know what's being done to it. I'm going to keep posting Paul stuff, when I get a spare minute, but I guess you could start a George rarities thread, too. It would make it a lot easier to find things. I'll post a few more videos soon.
