Beatles Sessions, EMI Parlophone OC 064 2402701.

Published October 29th, 2016

Unreleased. The “Beatles Sessions” was a compilation album by The Beatles planned for release by EMI in 1985, but never issued due to objections by the surviving Beatles. The album consisted of thirteen finished, but unreleased, Beatles songs. A single – “Leave My Kitten Alone“, with an alternative version of “Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da“, which was not to appear on the album, as its B-side—was also planned, but it too was left unissued.

Come and Get It” was a demo recording performed by Paul McCartney solo and eventually handed over to and recorded by the group Badfinger. George Harrison would re-record “Not Guilty” on his album George Harrison in 1979. “How Do You Do It?” had been recorded for a possible early single at the request of George Martin, but scrapped in favour of “Please Please Me“. The album also was to include an edit of “Christmas Time (Is Here Again)“, from the group’s 1967 fan club Christmas single.

Versions of all the songs planned for Sessions would eventually see official release as part of “The Beatles Anthology” series in 1995-96, with the exception of “Christmas Time (Is Here Again)“, which was concurrently released on the “Free as a Bird” single. Bootlegs of various versions of the Sessions album made their way to the public in the late 1980s and early 1990s, some from leaks of internal EMI copies.

Fully laminated glossy sleeve may have a factory red print on back side – “Factory Sample Not For Sale” or red sticker with the same words. Record housed in custom EMI plain paper inner sleeve.

Published October 25th, 2016

From the time of its release, Let It Be was regarded as an aberration by many of those closely involved in its creation because of the involvement of Phil Spector in the final production process after the basic album had been recorded.
Over 30 yeas later, was advertised as “Let It Be as it was meant to be“, promising the original album as envisages prior to Spector’s involvement. In fact it was a brand new mix of the original tapes, produced by Poul Hicks, Guy Massey and Allan Rouse, all of whom had been involved in Anthology and Yellow Submarine songtrack projects. They created entirely new master version.
