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".
