Amazing to me that as late as 1968 they were wiping out Beatle takes.

Beware of sadness. It can hit you. It can hurt you. Make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for. - George

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at YouTube and Vimeo.

I know they recorded over certain takes of songs like for example with Long, Long, Long they wiped the early takes with later ones to save using a new reel.  Others went "missing" over the years.

If the WMGGW were wiped it will be in the Lifting Latches book so if no one else does i'll have a look in the morning and get back to you.

I had read somewhere (source forgotten, silly me) that George had recorded quite a few guitar solos at first, including a possible backwards solo. I don't have high hopes that *that* specific recording exists, but it makes me wonder if a few did manage to survive.

According to John C Winn in Lifting Latches George took away two reels of "odd takes" but left behind Take 1 (a looped ending is on Anthology 3, and Take 1 unlooped and monitor mixes have been booted as well).

All the other takes remain in the vaults.

 

Take 40 has been booted but don't get too excited. Winn writes " Take 40 actually consisted of Paul at the organ playing and singing his own "Lady Madonna" as well as George's number [note: one verse]. It was copied onto one of the "White Album ad-lib" reels and eventually bootlegged from that source."

Can't find the complete thing online but this is the Lady Madonna section

Can't you still get a pdf copy online?

A search online finds you can. Scroll down to the bottom of here and there is a part where you can click on "buy now" and get a copy for $20. Seems to still be working. I got mine from there and then printed it out so its not stuck on a computer. Took about 7 hours in getting a reply with the pdf and password.

Yeah, but I really want a proper paper copy, not a printout. It's ridiculous that books go out of print nowadays - it's so easy to self-publish.

I'd rather have a print out then nothing so it doesn't bother me. If that's how it comes then so be it.
