Hi! I am not big on forums, but when I couldn’t find this Beatles tune anywhere on the interwiki, I just had to make a post.


The song is called, “Anything”, and was recorded on February 22, 1967 in the evening after the Day In The Life sessions. Ringo was in command, creating this 22minute, 10 seconds song “augmented with tambourine and congas”. It was never mixed.

When leafing through Mark Lewisohn’s 1992 book,”The Complete Beatles Chronicle”, on page 247, I came across this;

“The Beatles were especially keen to sit in on various mono and stereo mixes and edits of this song [A Day In The Life ] which followed, and even found the energy to record another of their experimental numbers before the session ended. Ringo was to the fore on this one, titled, “Anything” and comprising 22 minutes and 10 seconds of drum beat, augmented by tambourine and congas. Quite what it was for is not clear. It was certainly never used, nor, apparently, was it even mixed.”


@Ron Nasty What do you know? You seem to be the number one expert here.

And @Joe maybe you can do a page?
