mod note: this post originally began a thread titled " Need Help Identifying Beatles Demo's bootleg..." The 9 posts following this one are in response to this post.

Hi There, 

I posted this over at Discogs to try and find out more info, but I thought I could try here as well. 

I found an LP with blank white labels and handmade label maker song titles. The songs are all from the Get Back  sessions, from what I can tell, and they are very rough versions. Most songs have talking before and after, some have mistakes and feedback in the middle. I've only done a small amount of research so far, and I can see that there are about a million bootlegs and compilations out there from these sessions, so I imagine that it isn't that unique to find. I found a similar release called The Silver Album and another on Lemon Records, but none have the same track listing or matrix information. 

Here's the track listing - 

Side A:
Get Back I
Janey Walk
Let It Be
Teddy Boy
On Our Way

Side B:
Don't Let Me Down
I've Got A Feeling
Long Winding Road
I Love You
All I Want Is You
Get Back II

And here's what it looks like - 

https://farm9.staticflickr.com.....e855_o.jpg

https://farm8.staticflickr.com.....4aab_o.jpg

I made a low quality rip from the vinyl in garageband on my computer, but I haven't figured out the best way to share the audio samples yet. Anyone that has any ideas I'd be open to suggestions. 

Unfortunately the only back story on the actual copy I found is that it has been sitting in a closet at my parents house in Michigan for years, neither of my parents know where it came from. I'm going to be putting this up for sale soon, but I'm trying to find out as much as I can about it before I do. 

Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

Beats me, sorry! a-hard-days-night-paul-10

 

But it could be some songs from the Twickenham Sessions which was an 8 CD set.

Definitely the 'Get Back ' sessions from January 1969; 'I Love You' will be a bootleggers title for 'For You Blue ', 'On Our Way Home' 'Two Of Us ', 'All I Want Is You' 'Dig A Pony '. I'd guess 'Janey Walk' is 'The Walk'.

I have a bootleg book upstairs, i'll have a look and see if this collection is in it.

Been thru the three books i have that document bootlegs covering the 'Get Back ' sessions and none of them have anything with that specified track-listing, the closest throws in 'One After 909 ' and doesnt have the alternate song titles. Sorry.

I hope you find it @PatrickJames10 and if you do please let us know. 

Good luck.apple01

Could you post a picture of the item?

Another question I have in general is: do people buy bootlegs like this since the material is available for free on the web?

There seems to be various threads here about individual Beatles bootleg releases, but not one concerning bootlegs in general. This thread can be used to talk about bootlegged, rare or foreign albums/singles/DVDs etc.

Here's where I find a huge chunk of things -

I stumbled upon this interesting 1974 release on the Melodiya label, which most artists inside and outside the USSR came under during the 60s, 70s and 80s.

The four songs on this EP(?) are I Should Have Known Better , Can't Buy Me Love , (both 1964) Lady Madonna (1968) and Maxwell's Silver Hammer (1969). A lot of Beatles releases on Melodiya have songs from different years. Does anyone know why this is?

Going back to The Beatles on Melodiya, I've found this reissue of the same EP from 1980: 

http://collectorsfrenzy.com/de.....ery_rare 

 Melodiya released a collection of the songs featured on their EPs.

0_8507c_3a9aae2e_L.jpgImage Enlarger

The tracks included are as follows-

Here Comes The Sun  

Because  

Golden Slumbers  

Can't Buy Me Love

 Maxwell's Silver Hammer  

 Lady Madonna  

 I Should Have Known Better  

With A Little Help From My Friends

Penny Lane  

When I'm Sixty-Four  

Lovely Rita

 Across The Universe (Let It Be version I presume)

I Me Mine  

Let It Be  

 Octopus's Garden

Something

Come Together  

However, this still doesn't explain why some of the EPs have songs from different years. Also, I wonder if @Joe would be interested in adding the Melodiya EPs (the only album of The Beatles released on Melodiya I have seen on the internet is AHDN ) to the discographies section.

Nothing yet? In the mean time, I was looking through the discographies section on the site and came across the Israeli 1971 release of Magical Mystery Tour .

Does anyone know why it was released there THAT year? Was it postponed or to make up for The Beatles splitting?

But aren't the Beatles credited with contributing to the downfall of the USSR?

Yeah, and David Hasselhoff credits himself for bringing down the Berlin Wall.
