Need Help Identifying Beatles Demo's bootleg...

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 -

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.

I did a quick search and BootlegZone doesn't seem to have it in their records.

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces.

I'm also ewe2 on weekends.

Most likely to post things that make you go hmm... 2015, 2016, 2017.

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?
