Ever heard anything about the Beatles that just doesn't make any sense? There's loads but I can't think of them right now, the only one I can remember is how they haven't released the full version of In Spite Of All The Danger. There's something they're not telling us. *straps tinfoil hat to head*.

Well, I once heard someone say that Hootie and the Blowfish were better than the Beatles. There's nothing more strange than hearing that. a-hard-days-night-paul-11

I want to know why "Carnival Of Light" is so off-limits that it's still unreleased. With all that has already been unleashed from the archives, what's the deal with that one? Does anyone find that one strange?

"It's called Sex Panther by Odeon. It's illegal in nine countries. Yep, it's made with bits of real panther, so you know it's good."

That's been discussed a few times. I believe Paul suggested it for one of the Anthologies, but George and/or Ringo vetoed its inclusion. The avant-garde stuff embarrasses them or something.

I just want to hear this so badly…  A 14-minute precursor to "Revolution 9" made by The Beatles in 1967 that only a handful of living people have ever heard…?  Yeah, you can sign me up for that.

E is for 'Ergent'.

Has anybody ever pinned down why that extra verse was edited out of "It's All Too Much" before release? Did George change his mind after it was recorded (as opposed to discarding the extra "Gently Weeps" verse before it was done in studio)?

Yes, that one has had me wondering since I found out about it.  I am also wondering why there are still a couple of BBC radio songs that won't be on Volume 2 when there are apparently some decent quality bootlegs of them about.

Wasn't there one with Rolf Harris on it, and they've had to pull it because of his recent news? That only really applies to maybe two at most though, and there's a wealth of others out there.
