According to the 'Beatles recording sessions' by Mark Lewisohn, George Harrison once recorded a demo of 'oldbrown shoes' (among other songs) with a few vocals and guitar parts ... Has anybody here ever listened to it, or knows where could i find it?

 

Thx and cheers!

@Shamrock Womlbs If referring to the demo session George had on 25 February 1969, his 26th birthday, when he recorded versions of Old Brown Shoe All Things Must Pass  and Something , then all three songs are included on the 2nd disc of Anthology 3 .

An alternate mix of the Old Brown Shoe demo taken from the 1969 acetate was booted on 'Abbey Road: A Moggical Mystery Tour' for anyone interested in all the variations out there. 

The following people thank meanmistermustard for this post:

Does anyone interpret the "Let me out..." vocals during the fade out as a comment from George on him wanting to get out of the Beatles? I've seen it written elsewhere that it was but I presume this is more in hindsight based on the following events.

On the 1965 Christmas Record, John Lennon suggests at one point that the band should play "We'll Gather Lilacs In An Old Brown Shoe ".

I always find it interesting how many people interpret this song in different ways...  Probably the most common interpretation is that it means absolutely nothing...  Here's one theory, which I don't necessarily agree with, but is fascinating nonetheless

The "escaping from this zoo" bit could also be a reference to George "wanting to get out of the Beatles", as is the title which suggests that the band is growing tired...  "I'm stepping out of this old brown show"...  meanmistermustard's take does seem to make the most sense...:-)
