OK, so the back-story is clearly nuts, but the song clips are quite well done - mashups of the solo years. Have a listen.

Actually, the more I listen to this, I think I might prefer it to a lot of The Beatles' solo stuff. A lot of care and attention's clearly gone into it, which is more than can be said about McCartney II or Mind Games ;-).

Note by Ahhh Girl 31 May 2014: I merged a duplicate thread on this mashup into this thread. The duplicate thread was created in the Recording and Musicology section and consisted of posts 10-31 below.

I suppose I should have made myself clearer- I purely meant it as support to the absurdity of the backstory, ho ho ho, hee hee hee, ha ha ha! (As the Boys would so jovially chuckle)
I, a seventeen year old girl, would never have the patience, know-how or technical skill (or any incentive for that matter) of any kind to be able to pull off such mastery, but, I just provided that little side thought as just further evidence of the bizarre nature of it, but I suppose it was dreadfully apparent, wasn't it?
Not trying to be naive, just stating the dreadfully obvious, I suppose.

I'll have to take a listen to all of them; I only listened to the first one before heading off to work.

And nice to meet you, Mr. Starrdog, Ringo fan, yeh?

God I have been waiting for someone with real technical skill to do this.  I've only listened to two songs, and I have to say: well done!  (the story is unnecessary and silly, and I fear may distract and detract from the actual accomplishment.)

Opinions? The music and the concept? Believable or not?

Note by Ahhh Girl 31 May 2014: this post originally began a new thread on this topic. I merged that thread (runs to post 31 below) into this one.

I salute the lady who screamed "I love you Paul!" at a tribute band's concert.

I heard "Four Guys" before I heard Band On The Run so to me it sounded awesome. Then I listened to Band On The Run and thought, "Actually the real is one is a lot better."

But you want a really good Beatles remix album I would suggest "The Grey Album" by DJ Danger Mouse. It's basically the acapella tracks of Jay-Z's Black Album mashed together with bits of the White Album. Not for people who aren't fans of Hip Hop however.

You all will have read that Dave Dee is no longer with us. But Mickey and Titch and I would like to carry on the good work that's always gone down in number two.
