I love how in Mr H Atom Paul half sings it and half declares it, as if he's a mad scientist: "well it HAAAS been suggested that the OOOnly difference between a MAAAN and a female…" Makes me laugh.

For my money, the best outtakes are certainly from the Ram sessions.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v…..re=related

What an incredible song A Love For You is! Totally should have been on the album, would have fit the mood perfectly, as well as featuring one of Paul's best ever vocal performances, crazy-sounding but effortless high notes.

Also Rode All Night, definitely one of the hardest and grittiest McCartney rockers. If he'd fine tuned it a bit, cut down the length, produced it properly and added a bassline it would have gone down as a solo-Paul Helter Skelter.

I'm also very fond of Cage, a rather wacky outtake from the Back to the Egg sessions, great riff and constantly stuck in my head.

meanmistermustard / Ben Ramon    a real treasure trove.

These will all make an interesting album one day (assuming the concept of an album survives). Love "Yvonne" and "Cage"

"Rode All Night" would take some work. Ben Ramon, sounds like a job for you!

An outtake from Wings At The Speed of Sound, Must Do Something About It with Paul singing lead.

 

From the Ram sessions Hey Diddle, a great song to sing along to.

 

 

And Same Time Next Year. This was posted earlier but the video was taken down so didnt work. I played this over and over again to the point of overkill upon discovery.

Listening to all this stuff makes me realise how INSANELY prolific Paul is. Who else could have such an enormous backlog of rare material, recorded in quality enough to be put on an album, which has never seen the light of day? 

Another outtake I love from the Ram sessions is the slow, psychedelic Sunshine Sometime.

And the hard Wings rocker from 1972 (?) Night Out.

I have looked for that version of Must Do Something About It! Thanks for posting it, mmm!

In regards to Paul releasing this stuff, there have been rumors of a huge outtake/rarities boxset coming at the end of all the remasters, which, at this rate, means right before I die of old age.

Of which it will cost a fortune and only be available as a deluxe edition with tons of stuff we all can live without.

An outtake of Mary Had A Little Lamb. This song has an easy to pick up and sing section, could replace Hey Jude.

Hahaha! You mean in concert? Fat chance of that ever happening! I know if I went to a McCartney concert for the first time, and he didn't play Hey Jude, I would be supremely disappointed!

Hi. I don't mind people discussing bootlegs, but this isn't a forum for trading illegal stuff. Sorry. Also, if you start a topic PLEASE DON'T WRITE ALL IN CAPS.

Yeah, Paul could afford to make life really difficult for the administrators of this site, but I think that he'd welcome "people discussing bootlegs" for sure, especially Paul McCartney ones…:-)

I'm sure many of you know Paul won a lawsuit against TPB for multimillions usd.  Whether he'll ever see the money is another questions, and TPB continues to operate in the meantime.  He cited the monetary damage up and coming groups would suffer.  But the hip new groups post their official music vids to youtube, and let people post live homemade recordings, and I think this is a great way for up and coming groups to expose their music to a very wide audience.  But that doesn't directly address the issue of file sharing.  I think it's ok for stuff like bootlegs and non-officially released stuff (if apple has the stuff, they should know practically anything they release, even rehearsal tapes, would be eaten up by people like us and they would still make millions…I suppose that kind of stuff doesn't meet their 'quality' standards…but some of it does imo!)

Sorry for the OT part, but a search in the other bootleg topics revealed no hits on 'black album'.  So how come no mention of the Black Album.  I think the only result I got googling it was one brand new reseller had a copy for 249usd.  I have an electronic copy.  This boot has a lot of rehearsal tapes (notably, one of She Came In Through The Bathroom Window where Paul (?) sings and John sings a retort to almost every line lol, and a pretty clean version of Across The Universe and a really neat rehearsal of 2 of Us, probably near the final take.  Anyone know about this bootleg?  Is The Black Album a taboo subject here?  I could hardly believe I'm the first in here to have heard of it, after reading these posts. 

ps – sorry for duplicate posting I posted this to a thread that hadn't had a post since 2012 so I figured it was ok to repost it to a more recent thread.  Bust me back to A Beginning (if I'm even out of it yet) if this is an awful breach of biblequette a-hard-days-night-george-10

It's probably been mentioned before, but Paul seems more than happy with people filming his concerts and putting them up on YouTube. I think what he doesn't like is people giving away stuff he's trying to profit from, which is hard to argue with. No idea on his position regarding the trading or selling of Beatles outtakes – as I said before, I'm happy for them to be discussed but I don't want any download links to be posted.

I have "Live at Amoeba Hall 27.6.07."

Don't think it's been officially released.  tbh I acquired so much Beatly music last year I haven't gotten to listen to it yet!

I also have "Hot Night in Charlotte" – it doesn't have a date, but my guess is the 80s or 90s.  It is listed as with Wings, so probably early 80s.

4 tracks from the 27th June 2007 Amoeba Hall concert (Dance Tonight, I Saw Her Standing There, Only Mama Knows, and That Was Me) were released on the EP 'Amoeba's Secret' on the 13th November 2007.

12 of the performed tracks were included with the 17th January 2010 edition of 'The Mail on Sunday' as an exclusive promotional cd. 

14 tracks were made available on Paul's website for Premium Members on the 16th November 2012

Part of the Amoeba performance (which was a free gig in a Los Angeles record shop) was released as an EP, Amoeba's Secret (4 tracks), in 2007. In 2009 there was a 14-track version, Live in Los Angeles – The Extended Set, free to "premium" members of his website, while in the UK a 12-track (I think?) version was given away free with one of the Sunday newspapers.

The Wings credit is wrong on Hot Night in Charlotte. It was recorded long after Wings' 1980 split at the Blockbuster Pavilion in Charlotte on 15 June 1993.

A couple of alternate versions of Medicine Jar, one of the very best non-Macca Wings tracks and a real highlight on Venus and Mars.

mmm,

I feel about "So Bad" and "With A Little Luck" the same way you do about "Hold Me Tight." (I think rarely was a song so aptly named as "So Bad" except for perhaps "It's All Too Much" coming at the end of the too-long Yellow Submarine.)

I do like "Medicine Jar" but prefer the album version (with its harmonies) than this alternate.
