Comments
"Turn Me On Dead Man: The John Barrett Tapes" is a revelatory experience for Beatles fans, comprising tracks taken directly from the late Abbey Road engineer's cassette dubs of material he found during the vaults searches in 1982. Included are previously unavailable tracks and mixes as well as items featuring significant upgrades in sound quality from earlier appearances on other collections. The package also includes a booklet with informative liner-notes and rare photos.

Prior to the early 1980's, it was pure hearsay amongst Beatles aficionados as to what was inside the EMI vaults pertaining to the group's residency at Abbey Road and other studios from 1962 until 1970. Also, very little was known about actual recording dates of their album and singles. Most of the information that was available to fans came from contemporary reports in UK music magazines such as "New Musical Express" or "Melody Maker", or fan mags like "Beatles Monthly". This info, some correct, some not, was then regurgitated in many of the earlier Beatles books, such as Roy Carr and Tony Tyler's "An Illustrated Record" or Harry Castleman and Wally Podrazik's "All Together Now".

All of this uncertainty was to change beginning in 1981. That year, an engineer at Abbey Road named John Barrett found he had cancer, and was looking for a way to occupy his time while undergoing treatment. Ken Townsend, the manager of the studios at the time, thought that finally going through the vaults and seeing exactly was and was not there with regards to the Beatles' many recording sessions would be an excellent task for the ailing engineer.

Barrett ripped into his task with gusto, spending weeks listening through every tape and making up a detailed "catalog" of sorts, with multi-colored tabs and dividers for easy access to the various sections, and color codings for the multitudes of mixes and takes which were included. The first fruits of this research was used on the insert for the box of EMI's "The Beatles Singles Collection" issued in December of 1982, which featured for the first time the recording dates for the tracks enclosed. Also, an informative article in "Record Collector" by Nick Piercey in october 1983 included EMI mouthpiece Mike Heatley using Barrett's guide when answering Piercey's queries about various Beatles recording issues.

Throughout 1982, Barrett was also compiling audio material for a Beatles multi-media show that would take place in the famed Abbey Road Studio 2 while it was being refurbished in the summer of 1983. While this cataloging and assemblage for "The Beatles At Abbey Road" (as the show was to be imaginatively titled) was occurring, Barrett was running cassette dubs of some of the more interesting material for his own use. Some of the material was mixed as he was running his tapes, while some tracks where the original mixes done at the time of the recording sessions. Barrett knew what he was doing; he dubbed off lengendary tracks such as "Leave My Kitten Alone", which had never been issued, as well as the more interesting alternate takes in the vaults like "Norwegian Wood" take one. Also, many of the tracks he dubbed where stereo mixes of titles that at the time hadn't seen the light of day in stereo, or had seen limited release, such as "This Boy".

Meanwhile, the late Roger Scott, a well-known UK disc jockey, was enlisted to do the narration for the "Abbey Road" show, and was given copies of these dubs as well. Scott actually used some of the tracks from these dubs in 1984 (the same year Barrett died, in February) for a 12-hour radio show on the Beatles entitled "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band". This material subsequently appeared (taken directly from the radio show discs) on the NEMS release "Not For Sale" in early 1985. Copies of some of the tapes made it into other hands one the Continent, who subsequently issued various series such as "Ultra Rare Trax" on Swingin' Pig, and Yellow Dog's "Unsurpassed Masters", based on the Barrett dubs, mixed with other sources.

However, much of the material dubbed off by Barrett went unissued... until now. Taken from the original cassette dubs, here are a bunch o' Beatles tracks you've never heard in this forum. They are all either different mixes, or significant upgrades from previous appearances, or in some cases, completely unissued.

While John Barrett's name may not be as lengendary in the Beatles' world as other researchers such as Mark Lewisohn, his initial work was the cornerstone for all that is now finally known about the Beatles' recording sessions. In tribute, we hope you enjoy these tapes ... hopefully John Barrett would be happy to know that his efforts were not in vain !

Barrett
5 Mar 1963
The Beatles
Stereo.
This track is the released take of the Beatles's third single, yet is featured here in the closest form yet to a stereo mix of the mono single version with the harmonica in place over the intro. It features the tail-end of Paul's "1-2-3" count-off, but does not include the introductory "Da-da-da"'s

5 & 13 Mar 1963
The Beatles
Stereo.
The B-side of "From Me To You" is included in a stereo mix which is similar to the mono single version which featured fewer harmonica overdubs in comparison to the next version. There is also a bit of studio noise at the beginning.

Song
Alternate Mix
Barrett
5 & 13 Mar 1963
The Beatles
Stereo.
A long-awaited mix, an "unechoed" stereo version with harmonica over the middle-eight as well as the intro and outro. This previously appeared oni Capitol's "The Beatles Second Album", swamped in reverb placed there by the oh-so-wise Capitol Tower engineers in March of 1964.

Take 2
Barrett
5 Mar 1963
The Beatles
Mono.
Take 2 of a series of five takes (hear them all in stereo on Vigotone's "March 5, 1963" disc). George was obviously having problems with the solo here; listen to John's comment as the song fades out. The problem was solved with take 5 which was an edit piece which picks up the song from just before the solo to the end. A Barrett edit of take 4 and his edit piece can be heard on "Another Sessions... Plus".

She Loves You(Lennon/McCartney)
02:24
Song
Alternate Mix
RS1
1 Jul 1963
The Beatles
Rechannelled stereo. RS1 on 8 Nov 1966.
In late 1966, when it was apparent that there was not to be a new Beatles studio album in time for Christmas, a greatest hits was hastily assembled for the UK market only. Actually, "A Collection Of Beatles Oldies (But Goldies)" was welcomed by the fans at the time as a way of picking up several tracks which had never appeared on UK albums, of which "She Loves You" was one. The problem came when putting the stereo version of the album together, as the session tapes of "She Loves You", were long gone. Thus, on November 8, Geoff Emerick spent time trying to fashion a stereo version from the mono mixdown tape. The first mix you'll hear (with his voice featured on the beginning slate, as it is on the second mix as well) was the one used for the LP, with the bass frequencies emphasized in the left channel and the highs in the right.

She Loves You(Lennon/McCartney)
02:27
Song
Alternate Mix
RS2
1 Jul 1963
The Beatles
Rechannelled stereo. RS2 on 8 Nov 1966.
However, the second one has Emerick shifting the track from channel to channel when various sections of the song were being performed, not dissimilar to the trick United Artists engineers utilized on the US Stereo "A Hard Day's Night" LP. (Note: in Mark Lewisohn's "The Beatles Recording Sessions", he states that remix two was not the one used for the "Oldies" LP).

This Boy(Lennon/McCartney)
02:26
Song
Alternate Mix
RS15
17 Oct 1963
The Beatles
Stereo. RS15 on 10 Nov 1966.
While the "Oldies" album was being prepared, it was discovered that there was one Beatles track which had not appeared on any UK LP to date: "Bad Boy", the Larry Williams potboiler which had surfaced on the US "Beatles VI" LP in June of 1965. The track was called up for remixing but instead of receiving the tape for "Bad Boy", the tape for "This Boy" had been sent instead! Engineer Peter Brown duly mixed the tracks into stereo for the first time, and it is his voice heard on the opening slate for "RS15". It was then discovered that this was the incorrect track required but "Bad Boy" was never remixed in the end, as the original 1965 mix was found to be sufficient. This mix of "This Boy" went unissued until 1976 when it appeared on a Capitol of Canada 45 with "All My Loving" on the flip side, but this is its first appearance with the slate.

Barrett Mix
14 Aug 1964
The Beatles
Stereo.
This take was indeed issued on "Anthology 1" in 1995 but in a compressed, extremely narrow stereo mix. This is a superior mix by Barrett which is more faithful to the stereo mixing style of 1964.

30 Sep 1964
The Beatles
Stereo.
A truly exciting never before issued item, the 11th take of this "Beatles For Sale" track which was temporarily marked "best" until the Beatles remade the song on October 26. It's a bit rough around the edges but features a slate, studio chat, full vocals from Paul & John, and includes a "false ending" which was not utilized in the final version.

That Means A Lot(Lennon/McCartney)
02:46
Song
Take 1
RS?
20 Feb 1965
The Beatles
Stereo. RS? on 23 feb 1965.
With this series of takes, we track the journey of an urneleased Beatles song. This was not one of the Lennon/McCartney team's finer moments, and was eventually recorded by expatriate P.J. Proby on April 7, 1965 for an unsuccessful 45 release. However, The Beatles gave it a go over two separate recording sessions for "Help!" and the results are featured here, complete with slates and studio chatter. All the above tracks are either previouslay unavailable mixes (track 12, 13 & 14), previously unreleased (track 15 & 16) or in more superior quality than available before (track 17, 18 & 19).

Take 1 RS? has vocals more in front and a longer outro than usual.

The Beatles
This is the same as take 1 but in stereo, as mixed by John Barrett in 1982.
Stereo.
An instrumental "Green Onions" cop, which was recorded as a desperation move when it seemed the "Rubber Soul" LP was going to be a bit short on tunes. Thankfully, John came up with "Girl", Paul offered "I'm Looking Through You", and "Wait" was dug up from the archives from its non-appearance on "Help!". "12-Bar Original" was then released to the vaults, thus keeping it from being the song on "Rubber Soul" that everyone would skip over on repeared listenings! Here are takes 1 (a breakdown) and 2 (track 24), in an upgrade from previous appearances in stereo with slate.

Mono. RM11 on 6 Jun 1966.
As a special bonus, we have taken the liberty of straying from the Barrett tapes for one track. Featured here is the extremely rare mono mix (RM11) of "Tomorrow Never Knows" which was included on a select few first pressing of the monaural UK "Revolver" LP (matrix #XEX 606-1 only). This came about as a result of George Martin making a second call on July 14, 1966 (as the album was already in the cutting stages) to Geoff Emercik to replace this mix with RM8, which had been produced earlier, on April 27. However, it wasn't changed before some pressings had already been manufactured with RM11, thus insuring that very few people would ever get to hear this considerably different (in both content and length) mix. Now you can see for yourself if old George made the right decision.

Review by: François Vander Linden, beatleg@infonie.beOn 13 Sep 1999
Aaaah ! The famous Barrett Tapes... not a rumour anymore. Now, thanks to some underground people, it's a reality.

First of all, I cannot begin without telling you a word about the packaging. It's one of the best I've seen. It's better than the Beatles Anthology (but it does not surpasses the Lennon Anthology). Great liner notes (with very few errors !), great presentation, great pictures, very good, nice job, VigOtone !
For a change, the tracks are ordered chronogically and this is a nice way to present them.

The first ten tracks are basically alternate Barrett mixes. Whether you like mixes or not, you won't miss the differences because they are obvious.

The big surprise of this CD is of course, What You're Doing (take 11) which was unreleased until then. This version is completely different featuring a false end and differences in the instrumentation.

The 8 versions of That Means A Lot are also quite interesting because it's the first appearance of some of the versions here but also because some are completely different to what was available then (particularly take 20) and it's a relief. It's interesting to listen to the evolution of this unreleased Beatles song.

Help! is presented as an instrumental basic track and you can almost Karaoke to it...

The last 6 tracks before Tomorrow Never Knows are, once again, alternate Barrett mixes. Some differences here and there but you've got to know your Beatles songs to detect them.

Tomorrow Never Knows is quite different than the released version but, again, you'd better know the original version to notice the differences.

In conclusion, this first CD is promising but will CD #2 keep these promises ?
Review by: Dr. Musix, Wolfgang.Bittmann@extern.lrz-muenchen.dOn 03 Oct 1999
It had to happen. Someone finds a battered leather case on a suburban charity jumble sale, likes the vintage hotel stickers on it - an finds it full of cassette tapes. The first owner, one J. Barrett, is presumed dead for years, so the neighbours say; and this once belonged to him. Turns out the cassettes have Beatles tunes a-plenty on them, but some sound a bit strange with all that banter before and after the songs. So goes the story - or somehow like it.
These are the first new Beatles outtakes in quite a while, not counting the release of the official radio-friendly edited Anthologies, but to be honest, spread over two long CDs are just a handful of really new-ish things like a faster version of WHAT YOU'RE DOING or another vocal take on STRAWBERRY FIELDS, plus a look and listen to the frustrating work-in-progress during numerous takes of THAT MEANS A LOT. That means it's a lot like a "novelty" record: you'll probably lose interest after the third listen. It seems that John Barrett, the ill-strucken Abbey Road engineer, decided to create his own mixes of a few tunes. Does that qualify them as outfakes? Very few differences (check out louder strings in HELLO GOODBYE), but overall an exciting good sound quality which is maybe the greatest assett of this Vigotone offering - plus good packaging including nice booklet and expert liner notes.
All in all an expensive item for completists - but who isn't?
Review by: Luis Sanchez, kawada1@yahoo.comOn 11 Nov 1999
First of all I give this Double CD set a 10 for packaging and a 5 for content. I'm not particularly fond of Remixes and this 2 CD set has more than it's fair share of them. Overall the sound quality is phenomenal but there isn't enough to keep me interested after a few listenings. Recommended for real audiofiles or true completist only.
Review by: Paul, harricart@aol.comOn 06 Mar 2000
Don't buy this disc. A waste of money! only good thing on it is "What you're doing" and the liner notes/pictures that come with the package. That's all!
Review by: Laban, baden-baden@hotmail.comOn 05 May 2000
The highlights of DISC 1 are (of course) What You're Doing which hasn't been released before and the improved sound on Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown) - take 2. Actually, there aren't any spectacular new takes or songs on this album (although I really enjoy 'Test take' of That Means A Lot, which has been on some other boot in worse quality) and the remixes are kind of let down, but if you're a collector you'll want this, maybe just for the packaging, which is outstanding!
Review by: Gary Tyler, Beatles_Forever@webtv.netOn 07 Jul 2000

Review by: foolonthehillOn 01 Jul 2003 at 23:45 CEST
This is plain and simply a great collection. That Means A Lot never struck me as a great tune... until I heard the 8 versions (in the making) presented here! Also be sure to check out Tomorrow Never Knows. The remixes are superb and refreshing for those of you who hear the same old stereo mixes over and over.

Yeah Yeah Yeah!Good job, good sound!Thanks Vigotone!
Review by: O BoogieOn 02 Aug 2003 at 22:41 CEST
I'll have to agree with the postitive reveiws above. My only complaint is that the sound quality though overall really great, is compressed a little too much and gives the audio a fresh from a "tin can" sound to my ears. I suspect Vigotone did this to "squeeze" the most sound from the Barrett cassette tapes. Having said this it's still a very worthy set to have in one's Beatles bootleg collection. 'Nuff said!
Review by: StooleOn 29 Jan 2004 at 05:45 CEST
Track 13 doesn't sound like an edit piece even though that's what the booklet says. I think it's one of the recorded rehearsals mentioned in Lewisohn.

Also, there are a few bits of rehearsal and discussion of the middle eight at the end of track 12.
Review by: kurtmaxOn 13 Apr 2004 at 03:43 CEST
I liked this pretty well. Sometimes I felt that I wasn't hearing enough 'differences' from the official versions.
Review by: BixxOn 26 Apr 2005 at 20:43 CEST
I must have a boot of the boot, because mine doesn't have any elaborate booklet with liner notes, but the sound is excellent and even for us jaded hardcore, must have something never ever heard before, it's worth it! "What You're Doing" was cool for me since I hadn't heard this version, and at last to hear the Mono RM 11 of Tomorrow Never Knows. Well that wasn't so different. Sound quality & quanity that's what counts!

Review by: batorucoOn 22 Jan 2006 at 07:25 CEST
I've just felt a cold water shower falling over me! When reading this page about the Barret tapes, I've just learned I used to be the proud owner of one Revolver LP with the very rare Tomorrow Never Knows RM11!
I bought this LP back in 1976, when I was studying in London, in a Soho second hand records store.
Of course I noticed at once the differences between this version and the one I was used to. My main interest had been to buy this LP because it was a mono version.
Years passed, I got rid of ALL my LP's (Please, don't ask why)
Today I got this bootleg and was not impressed at the version, but didn`t recall exactly why, only till I read this page and found out I got read of a jewell!
You might know how I feel.... :(

Review by: kpaynterOn 01 Feb 2007 at 06:15 CEST
Excellent package with some very subtle differences.

I have to question the accuracy of the notes specifying which take Barrett used for remixing the basic track of Help! for the Abbey Road show, however. According to a compiled complete set of takes I have from the session, take 8 was a false start, yet according to Lewison's research, there were 8 rhythm takes and the vocals started with take 9, and there are complete vocals mixed to take 9, including a very messy pairing of two intro vocals from Lennon. Take 10 is a 4-track to 3-track reduction removing one the doubled vocal tracks on the intro. Take 11's o/dub is a false start, and Harrison's guitar breaks are finally properly recorded on take 12.

Based on the above scenario, I think Barrett's mix is actually take 9, not 8 as indicated on the liner notes, with the vocal tracks removed. There is also no open mic bleed for the vocal, so I suspect take 9 was the best, final rhythm track, not 8 as Lewison's notes attest.

Overall though, a superb package!
