Comments
The 1st issue of this LP was in 1979 by Ruthless Rhymes label, which had an extra track on the end of side 2 "Hi Hi Hi/C Moon", a Wings radio ad. When it was reissued in this limited edition of 1000, it came with a white label and the words "JPGR Remime" on the spine, and the Wings ad was missing (but just on the sleeve notes!)

Beatles tracks but also, John, Paul, George and Ringo.

Not the Beatles.
It has also been presented, even more implausibly, as a Syd Barrett demo tape.
Allegedly recorded in June 1967 during the Sgt. Pepper recording sessions and found in the Apple trash can in 1970. Also known as "Candle Burns".

Outfake
(date unknown)
Paul McCartney
This song "Penny O'Dell" aka "Holding On To A Dream" is not The Beatles nor Paul McCartney but Kenny O'Dell.
Original Beatleg Project notes:
This is listed as Wings in Nashville, June 1974. However, it isn't on any McCartney/Wings bootlegs released since, nor does it show up in any of his discographies. It doesn't even sound much like Wings. I can't tell if it's Denny singing, it doesn't even sound like HIM.
But it's an external recording of a studio playback, of a really good song, with an absolutely great ending to the tape.

Updated notes:
This song "Penny O'Dell" aka "Holding On To A Dream" is not The Beatles nor Paul McCartney but Kenny O'Dell.

Reviews

Review by: Enrico Lucon, elucon@skynet.beOn 15 Aug 1999
An interesting collection of Beatles and solo tracks; some of which probably haven't got much to do with them (see for instance the mysterious "Peace of Mind"). Sleeve notes are often misleading and erroneous.
The quality of the recordings is far from exceptional, with the only exception of the Paul/Donovan tracks from the Postcard Sessions (Blackbird & Heather).
Review by: Greg Mitro, G_Mitro@hotmail.comOn 21 Jan 2000
This album features an interesting selection of Beatles and solo material, some of which,especially the 'Simple Life' ad and the T.V. coverage of the recording of 'My Carnival' are very hard to find elsewhere. Unfortunately, the sound quality of most of the album does leave a bit to be desired
Review by: Pasadena,On 30 Mar 2000
The alternate vocal version of OH DARLING is the best thing on this album. This was the first appearance of that version(I think). The rest of it is pretty boring and the quality sucks. What really bummed me out about this album is the obviously manufactured version of EVERY LITTLE THING which has someone adding a twelve string guitar over the original recording. It sticks out like a sore thumb. Dont bother with this one.
Review by: greg o'brien, theob@wrrv.comOn 21 Jun 2000
WHEN I BOUGHT THIS ALBUM WHEN IT CAME OUT, I THOUGHT IS WAS THE BEST BEATLEG I HAD UP TO THAT TIME. BUT LET'S FACE, WE ALL HAVE BY NOW HAVE GOTTEN UPGRADES AND BETTER SOUND QUALITY OF ALL OUR BOOTS. AND WE HAVE DISPELLED ALL THE MYTHS LIKE "PEACE OF MIND" WHICH IS ACTUALLY DONE BY A GROUP
CALLED THE END WHO WERE PRODUCED BY BILL WYMAN OF THE STONES. THE ACECTATES WHERE CUT BY APPLE, HENCE THE CONFUSION. "PENNY O'DELL"? WHO THE HELL KNOWS. THIS IS A POOR COLLECTION BUT THE ONLY PLACE YOU CAN GET THE HI HI HI/C MOON ADD.
Review by: Alessandro Marinho, taj.mahal@uol.com.brOn 17 Jun 2001
People sometimes are very demanding when It comes to old bootlegs, this one for example is a very fine one indeed, you can never get tired of listening to It.There are songs very hard to find elsewhere like the radio promo; HI, HI, HI\C-MOON, actually I never found It elsewhere.The funny thing about old boots, or the ones taken from LPs, is that they always mixed up stuff from 1960 up to 1970 and on...So you have the cronological mess which may leave some Beatlemaniacs upset...For me It's worthbuying and having and listening since there are some gemms here, enjoy...
Review by: mike harrisonOn 25 Feb 2003 at 04:56 CET
The 20X4 boot was one of the first that I bought, so I didn't really cared about all the bad stuff on it ! But once I heard other boots like "Ultra Rare Tracks" and stuff like that, I kind of put it aside for a while. But, still, once in a while it's not too bad... My lp version is from Box Tops Records. I never really got this: they put an adress on the back of the sleeve !
Review by: beatlescollectorOn 21 Jan 2004 at 03:40 CET
I don't think too bad about this boot.
It's a very interesting collection and you get some really rare tracks - 'Simple Life', 'My Carnival' and the 'Hi Hi Hi/C Moon' promo are very hard to find indeed and the other tracks are enjoyable as well. ('Oh! Darling' - great sound!!)

If you don't think too bad about outfakes, you'll even enjoy 'Every Little Thing' (really crappy sound but still funny to hear that second bass and the 12 string guitar...) and 'Penny O'Dell' (not bad song!). I think even 'Peace Of Mind' should be present somewhere in any Beatles collector's collection...

Of course Take 9 of 'Help!' is available in far, far better quality but to my mind it's exciting to imagine that journalist (if you believe the sleeve notes... :-) with the tape recorder in the studio!

I love to hear those strange old era-mix-up boots - because it's a pity that I almost got fed up with version after version of 'Don't Let Me Down' or 'Let It Be' during the complete Get Back Sessions and those 'Complete' CDs... (hey bootleggers, doesnt matter - great CDs nevertheless! Keep it up! )

I think this album deserves a little more attention. Definately worth a listen!
Review by: Kevin IslesOn 26 Aug 2006 at 02:00 CET
Although the quality sucks there are still some cool stuff on here. The best for me are the 2 George & Dylan demos. They are the very first recordings of those songs and are very historic. Some of this stuff is now available elsewhere in better quality but it's still cool for a listen every once in a while.
Review by: BEATLEDOOD55On 27 Jan 2008 at 09:27 CET
THIS ALBUM WAS FUN BACK IN THE DAY EVEN THOUGH THE QUALITY WASN'T
THAT GOOD. IT BRINGS BACK MEMORIES FROM WHEN THERE WEREN'T TOO
MANY BOOTS AVAILABLE. WE WERE HAPPY TO GET ANYTHING BACK THEN!
Review by: PublanskiOn 12 Jul 2008 at 07:54 CET
This is the first boot I bought, back at a Beatlefest in Chicago around '81. To my 14-year-old years, it was pretty good, especially since it was first album of "unauthorized" Beatles' music I ever heard.

Of course the most interesting song (theoretically)- "Peace of Mind" - turned out to have nothing to do with the Beatles.

And my favorite unheard Paul McCartney song, "Penny O'Dell" wasn't even Paul McCartney!

An interesting period piece for your collection, but nothing you will listen to very often, though it does bring back fond memories and have some interesting stuff.

7/10 for historical and sentimental value.
