A Trip With The Beatles - Magical Mystery Tour

It's been some time since part three of 'a trip with the Beatles', for which I apologise, and no, I have not yet edited the 'Get Back sessions' to share, I feel another apology coming on.

So this is part four, and I make no apologies for this!

A twenty three track album, the copy I have obtained goes under the name of 'Magical Mystery Tour Outtakes', it is however far more than that.

Lets go interactive for a moment. If you have the time, read the Wikipedia entry for the Magical Mystery Tour (click HERE). It's easy to forget the 'TV' film version bombed originally outside the UK. and was panned by the critics of that time. It's a reflection on my personality I guess, that I loved it, it is however the music that in typical Beatles style has demonstrated longevity.

I think it reasonable to say that against the Wikipedia background, this series of recordings are an absolute must for all Beatles fans, and curious parties.

The album is as follows:

The Beatles: Magical Mystery Tour Outtakes.

01. Magical Mystery Tour (unknown take)
02. The Fool On The Hill Piano demo take 1
03. Aerial Tour Instrumental Mono Mix take 8
04. Blue Jay Way "overdub session"
05. Your Mother Should Know Alternate Mix
06. I Am The Walrus take 7, external. Monitor mix.
07. I Am The Walrus take 9
08. I Am The Walrus take 17
09. Hello Hello take 1
10. Strawberry Fields Forever Paul singing at the piano
11 Medley
12. Strawberry Fields Forever Kenwood demos: electric guitar composing sequence + mellotron & overdubs onto composing sequence.
13. Strawberry Fields Forever the wonderful take 1
14. Strawberry Fields Forever take 25
15. Penny Lane Brass Overdub.
16. Penny Lane mono mix
17. Baby, You're A Rich Man take 2 RS? - UK/Germany
18. All You Need Is Love TV, Take 58
19. Jessie's Dream Film Music
20. Magical Mystery Tour unidentified
21. Your Mother Should Know German stereo LP mix
22. Strawberry Fields Forever German stereo LP mix
23. Hello Goodbye German stereo LP mix

The sheer sound quality of this collection is astounding, a wonderful piece of history, that for all the wrong copyright reasons, could never be officially released.

Clearly there are many other 'takes' around, this collection has, at least surfaced and been shared, if you are sitting on any gems, go on - let us know!

Hey Beehive---

Love your BLOG--I especially love the Beach Boys' show you posted from the early 1970s...do you have any others?? I know there are some crappy boots floating around of LIVE AT MADISON SQUARE GARDEN, where the band goes through most of the tracks from SURF'S UP, just before the album was released. I have a lousy tape of it, that someone gave me 20 years ago, and have always tried to find a "cleaner" copy. Anyway...thanks for the great stuff!!
