Nagra is a brand of tape-recorder, I believe.

So, which one of you Londoners is going to volunteer to break into the EMI vaults in 2017 when "Carnival Of Light" is 50 years old? :)

The following people thank Von Bontee for this post:

mmm was referring to mistype of "tape" for "trap".

The Nagra Tapes are the soundtrack recordings made for the filming.

More relevant here. 

Wogblog report on the soon to be released 'The Beatles: Work In Progress - 1963' which is taking advantage of the tracks which fell outside of copyright and into public hands back in December 1963. The tracklisting is 

1. There's a Place (Take 1)
2. There's a Place (Take 2)
3. There's a Place (Take 4)
4. There's a Place (Take 10)
5. There's a Place (Take 7)
6. I Saw Her Standing There (Take 4)
7. I Saw Her Standing There (Take 5)
8. I Saw Her Standing There (Take 6)
9. There's a Place (Take 11)
10. I Saw Her Standing There (Take 10)
11. Misery (Take 2)
12. Misery (Take 4)
13. Misery (Take 6)
14. From Me To You (Take 3)
15. From Me To You (Take 4)
16. From Me To You (Take 7)
17. Thank You Girl (Take 4)
18. Thank You Girl (Take 11)
19. Thank You Girl (Take 12)
20. From Me To You (Take 8)
21. Hold Me Tight (Take 22)
22. Hold Me Tight (Take 24)
23. Hold Me Tight (Take 28)
24. Don't Bother Me (Take 10)
25. Don't Bother Me (Take 13)
26. Don't Bother Me (Take 12)
27. I Want To Hold Your Hand (Take 9)

Presumable take 9 is the 33 second dialogue to the take which cuts off as the song itself is about to begin - tho i'm sure that was issued legitimately by Apple on their website so maybe its new and complete. It's scheduled to be out on the 24th November and to retail at £6.99.

Its being issued by the same company who are releasing the live 'She Loves You'/'Twist And Shout' single, both tracks being performed for Swedish radio in October 1963.

Does the copyright rule mean Carnival Of Light must be released officially in 2017?

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

No, more like if someone else happened to have a recording, they could release it without fear of legal repercussions.
