What????!?!?! I meant to post this a couple days ago but forgot. Shame, shame. On YouTube there there was a posting that shows a previously unseen version of Revolution. I think it is about 11 minutes. It combines Revolution 1 & 9 and even goes a bit further.
In an interview in The Beatles Anthology book, John Lennon describes a process that would seem to refer to this track: “The slow version of ‘Revolution’ on the album went on and on and on and I took the fade-out part and just layered all this stuff over it. It has the basic rhythm of the original ‘Revolution’ going on with some 20 loops we put on…”
Everyone loves a little new old music. What an awesome outtake.
I was going to post the video but unfortunately it was taken off of YouTube due to a copyright claim. Fuck that.
