I have seen a couple of these threads pop up around some points so I thought why not put it all together as one. So basically, if you have demos or bootlegs you have/heard of the Beatles and you're unsure if its real, this is the place to post it.

While I know this demo is real,

I'm still not sure about this one

No idea what happened inthe full Bad to Me as i skipped thru it to the end but its a fakeroonie. Some lovely person has decided to ruin a good song and demo and post it on youtube.


If we have this thread is it possible someone can merge it to the one that has the Help! Lennon 1970 demo and the supposed Sutcliffe recording so they are all together, would save having seperate threads covering the same theme.

It's the Lennon demo vocal stuck on top of the Dakotas backing track.

I agree there should only be one thread for this type of thing. However I thought I'd done that with my thread. The person who asked the question about the "Sutcliffe" Love Me Tender saw it as the place for that type of question. I would suggest this is added to my "Is this real?" thread, rather than keep having people create new threads and suggesting their thread should be the thread.

I'm not certain of this, but threads seem to be in date order with posts, and so if "Is this real?" was moved here, they would still be the first posts, the only thing that would have changed would be a slightly different thread name.

Maybe what we need to do, in somewhere like All Together Now or Getting Better, is come up with a list of topics, and existing threads that address them. So, using this example, in the list, you could have, "Questions about whether a recording is what it claims to be – See "Is it real?" in Yesterday… and Today."

So, we all know the search features have limitations, why not create an index of questions and point to threads that address them?

Just an idea.

I think the main problem would be that there would be too many questions. I'd love to have a solution for all the double threads, but I don't know what could be it.
