Revolution 1 - unedited 11:35 version

Postby Chris M » Fri Feb 20, 2009 7:05 pm

Note that this is a mp3. I don't think lossless versions have circlated. Sounds like it runs a little slow. Otherwise quality is excellent. Amazing to finally hear it after all these years but it probably won't be something I reach for too often.

This really wets my appetite for the 27 minute Helter Skelter... :roll:

FWIW, according to Lewisohn, there was only a single remix from take 20 (on 6/4/68), and it was taken away by John Lennon. Barrett's notes don't even have a tape number assigned, just "(MONO REMIX OF REVOLUTION TAKEN)". So this came from Lennon?

No, "Ok, I've had enough!"...

I think it does come from a tape John had at his house. Maybe the people that worked on the Lost Lennon Tapes made a copy..

Am I the only one that has never understood Lewisohn's explanation of the beginning of the song?

Mark Lewisohn wrote:It began so soon after the previous take that Geoff Emerick, in punching the talkback button simultaneously with the start of the song, announced "Take 18" over John Lennon's vocal, the first take with vocals, in fact. John deliberately kept Emerick's words as part of the song and thus they appear on the album.


I've always heard it as something along with lines of "ah, take 2".

For what it's worth, some kind soul posted the new 2 cd HMC Lennon box in alt.binaires.sounds.lossless.beatles.

It's funny how people everywhere are questioning the authenticity of this track. I mean, how fucking stupid can you be?

I can remember that Christmas morning in '68 me playing that side of the White Album, and hearing this odd version of the song....like it was yesterday. Isn't that such a great groove it settles into!
