What the hell is that vocal on Let It Be 41 minutes in? Surely not Paul, is it some sort of piss take by the creator of the file? :shock:

In all seriousness, you would hope that McCartney's people (I'm looking YOU Scott Rodger) have seen what a great job Dylan's Bootleg series has done in cataloguing and bringing together rarities from his career, and are looking at creating some sort of equivalent.

I'm sure plenty of you have seen this video before, definitely worth watching if you haven't (or again if you have!) from about 19 minutes 50 seconds onwards. This says to me that so much time, money and effort has been put in to putting all available demo's together that they must be looking to recoup that investment some time soon with a release.

Yeah, oobu, that "Let it Be" take is obviously fake. Truly horrendous.

I'd never heard this full demo of 1882 - its FAR superior to the live Wings version - mainly the middle 8 with some nice internal rhyming... too bad he never followed up on that one!
