This may be old news, but I couldn't find a thread about it...

 

Back in June, Giles Martin told the press that he was involved in (his words) a "secret Beatles project".

 

Whatever could it be...?

 

I've read the online speculation, and most of it seems pretty implausible.  'Let It Be' ain't happening, folks.  In fact, scratch anything 'Get Back' related.  Ditto for "Carnival Of Light" or other unbootlegged tracks of that era.  And a collection of acoustic 'White Album' cuts would be nice, but the bootleggers have covered it already.

My guess is that Giles is prepping something fairly banal, like extra features for the Blu-Ray of 'Help' or (even better) a nice new Blu-Ray edition of 'Anthology'.

My own personal best-case scenario would be that there will finally be a proper video collection released.  For a band that essentially invented the music video, they have yet to be served with a good video comp.

 

What do you cats think?

E is for 'Ergent'.

The only issue with any live album is that the 40-50 years later these live performances are very short don't sound that great (even when cleaned up with modern technology).

 

I like the idea of vinyl reissues.  It is sort of weird that the only proper catalogue album in print is 'Abbey Road'.

 

I'm still leaning towards a batch of new special features for the 'Anthology' blu-ray or (more plausibly) 'Help'.
