Fabulous clip!!!!

Why is Phil Spector doing vocals????

Shouldn't he be with the engineer?

So was looking online for a How Do You Sleep outtake and couldnt find it anywhere. After a few alternate search phrases a complete beatles bootleg album came up on youtube, which was very surprising.

So here it is.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v…..8B2KimnrbE

 

Its a cracking listen, even by todays standards, if you can find the time to listen to it online or some way of getting it off youtube.

I got it on cassette in a Scottish town called Stirling when i had no idea what a bootleg was, back in '95 or something, it was just a tape with some weird stuff (didnt help that it has a couple of John Lennon solo tracks and 2 Nilsson songs as well – the old days when bootleggers would try and pass Nilsson songs off as John ones).

 

The track list is:

1     Revolution (Rough Early Mix)                                                                                     

2     Yer Blues (Rock And Roll Circus 1968)                                                          

3     Not Guilty (White Album Outtake)                        

4     Lady Madonna (Early Different version)                                                                      

5     Tomorrow Never Knows (Fake mix)                                                                    

6     The Bus (Actually Ariel Tour Instrumental, an early mix of Flying)

7     Strawberry Fields Forever (Take 1 with backing vocals)                                                             

8     Jealous Guy (John solo outtake from 1971 Imagine sessions)         

9     Mucho Mongo /MountElgar (Harry Nilsson)                                

10    Many Rivers To Cross (Harry Nilsson)                  

11    How Do You Sleep? (John solo outtake from 1971 Imagine sessions)                               

12    Subterranean Homesick Blues (Harry Nilsson)                           

13    The One After 909 (Completely Different Version From 1969)                                      

14    Get Back (Rare Version Sung In German And French)                                                 

15    Mailman, Bring Me No More Blues (Unreleased Song From The "Get Back" Sessions – different from anthology)           

16    The Walk (From An Early Acetate Of "Get Back)                                                         

17    Two Of Us (Alternative Version)                       

18    Don't Let Me Down (Different, Slow Blues-Version)                                                     

19    Save The Last Dance For Me (Get Back Session)                                                       

20    Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da (Alternate)           

21    Strawberry Fields Forever (Different, Sleepy A-Capella Version)                                  

22    Dig It (Longer, Faster And More Rhythmic Version)                                                     

23    Let It Be (Early Version In A Gospel-Mood)                                                                 

24    Her Majesty (Get back sessions)                                                                                          

 

The only negative is that its all one lump so if you want to listen to track 16 you'll have to manually find it.

At least Mucho Mungo was written by Lennon, and he produced all those Nilsson songs. That looks like quite a good bootleg collection. I had a similar one back in the early 90s, which is where I first heard songs like Not Guilty and Child Of Nature.

Do you mean More Sweet Apples? It was the follow up to the above album and was another fabulous collection of outtakes. Highlights for me were the Get Back sessions; Watching Rainbows, I Lost My Little Girl, No Pakistani's, Commonwealth, Old Brown Shoe and All Things Must Pass.

It was albums like these that kept me believing in bootlegs when being ripped off by cheap crappy copies of albums that suffered from cd rot. Thank goodness for the age of the internet.
