My opinion is that Paul should release the "Carnival Of Light" (which it is said to be 15 minutes long and recorded late 1966-early 1967).I don't know for you but i do want so bad this record to come out!

Paul did want to put it out on Anthology 2 but George would have none of it and refused its inclusion.  It will come out one day but Olivia may keep with George's wishes and insist on it being in the vaults. Paul, Ringo, Olivia and Yoko all have to consent, or have no objections, to a release before anything can begin to happen.

Considering Paul has often stated how he was playing around with sound collages, tape loops and all that avant garde stuff  before John, who is most associated with it, its more likely he would want people to know Carnival Of Light as it was his initial idea really. And its not like Paul to leak anything Beatley.

The other question is would Yoko want it released if it showed Paul to be ahead of John in that department? There is still a little ongoing battle between Yoko and Paul.

Maybe they could do a Carnival Of Light/Mary Jane (remix) single - the freaky Beatles.

"Carnival Of Light" will see the light of day at some point, it's only a question of when. However, yoko-ono-01, a-hard-days-night-ringo-7, and Olivia Harrison will make sure that day is years and years away. It will be a disappointment when we get to hear it, but, hey, it's still a piece of Beatles history, so who cares? Happy waiting! apple01

Right fellow Biblers (or whatever the collective term for us here is) another Carnival Of Light video has popped up, this time, so far, with a few more yays than nays on its probable authenticity tho that might very well change depending on what more folks say when they hear it. I havent heard it yet.

You may want to prepare yourself for whatever it is youre going to hear if you do listen to it.

And i make no promise or suggestion its the real thing, just posting what i read elsewhere. It could very well be a fake and you very well may lose 14 minutes of your life listening to it and 48 years recovering.

The more I think about it, I'm thinking that this song is better left for the vaults.  It's all ready achieved Mythic Status with so few actually hearing it and would likely greatly disappoint if it were ever unveiled to the masses.  Of course, the BeatleFan in me is curious and would be most interested in what they actually came up with on such short notice from Paul, but it's likely nowhere near as "good" as 'Revolution #9' and most have a hard time digesting that one which is "only" 8 minutes.  Out of respect to George's wishes, it should remain a Myth and our imaginations would likely come up with something better than the actual recording anyway.  Probably the best thing about this recording is the title, I mean take John's advice here and "Turn off your mind, relax and float downstream" and you could probably envision a pretty magnificent 'Carnival Of Light' of your own, shouldn't great "art" be open to people's own personal interpretations?  This mythical track that not too many have heard could be the spark to a great many things simply because it's never been released, had it been released all ready it'd probably become just another skipped over CD Track like 'Revolution #9' is for many.

 

The fake that meanmistermustard posted (yes, it's very likely a fake or the video would've been removed by now) is kind of what I'm getting at, people hear the title and are inspired to create something that's quite possibly more listenable than the real thing actually is.  George also had the power to veto 'Los Paranoias' from 'Anthology 3' but didn't so 'Carnival Of Light' must be pretty bad.  This is what I imagine (or hope!) 'Carnival Of Light' to sound like, this was recorded during the same year and is from KPM Music (An EMI Division coincidentally, hmmm...  I wonder...) and was used in the 1960's 'Animated Spider-Man Series'   http://www.televisiontunes.com.....ulter.html   but I think if it sounded this good George wouldn't have been so opposed to its release...:-)
