I have a bootleg album called 'Alternate Takes 1968 - A Seance In The Dark'. It contains a 50 minute version of 'Revolution 9', but it's referred to as 'Revolution 9 (The Pain at the Party)'. It starts with 'What's The New Mary Jane?'. Any info on this? Is it just an outfake? Is it a concept John was working on? If needed, I can post it, but I'm sure it's googlable.... google-able?..... able to be googled.

Without hearing it, it's a fake (hate that "outfake" term!). I know of no mix that begins with "Mary Jane", though because of similar strange instrumentation I can see how it would be easy to weld it on the beginning. The most telling thing has to be that the longest known Beatles recording is the 27:11 version of "Helter Skelter". There is no real 50-minute "Revolution 9".

A fifty-minute version of Revolution 9 would certainly be a pain at a party. Or anywhere, for that matter.

Ya, with today's technology it would be way to easy to make your own bootlegs and people would buy it not knowing!
Especially in CD format where you can make your own printed covers and print on the CD itself. It would be the never ending collectors nightmare!

In case Ron Nasty's not a reliable enough source for anyone (though he should be considered one), Bootlegzone also calls it a fake.

Its a fake for the simple reason it lasts 50 minutes which is way beyond the 27 minute 'Helter Skelter' which is famously the longest authentic genuine Beatles recording or mix. Forget every other source and focus on the studio documentation.
