Found this posted on "Voodoo Wagon", (http://voodoowagon.blogspot.com/) posted by blogging wunderkind Jobe.... I don't TOO often borrow/steal/creatively acquire other people's posts (I never would without securing permission, as Jobe generously granted in this situation), but I found this so tremendous that I wanted to get it to the biggest possible number of Beatles fans possible.
OK, what this is is a 2011 release brought forth by a publication (UK I assume) TMOQ Gazette.....the information on who compiled, any backstory, etc, are quite sketchy, but the music is PHENOMINAL! Great alternate takes on many, many Beatles greats, if you are a Beatles fan this is a must have, must hear. Also included is an illustrated booklet (I haven't read it, too lazy to blow it up to suit my blind eyes, if I had, likely I'd have more info).......anyway, I DID include the booklet also, and anyone with any knowledge of this collection please inform me.....we've had a good bit of great Beatles-related stuff the last couple of months, but there's always room for Beatles!!
And, come to think of it, it's even more appropriate with the recent passing of George Martin, who likely was responsible for most if not all of the studio hijinx used to add or subtract from the original mixes......one of the most interesting collections I've heard in sometime.
