Rumor: New Beatles album in 2006  

I've overheard a few people talking about an upcoming newest "new" release from The Beatles. Rumor has it that McCartney is behind this 'in the works' project, but is working hard to keep it secret until closer to release date.

The CD is reportedly called 'The Beatles: HEAVY' and is a collection of classic harder and weightier Beatles tunes beginning with the great guitar wrencher: 'She's so heavy', followed by a genius mix of cuts from Abbey Road, The White Album and other post '67 recordings, including at least one previously unreleased song.

From what I've heard this is expected to be the biggest thing from The Beatles (music quality wise) since their break-up, possibly surpassing the Anthology collection.

He just won't be happy until he's completely rewritten history, will he?

Seriously, they got it right the first time. I don't mind releasing stuff from the vaults, but is it really necessary for McCartney to keep redoing The Beatles's songs?

I'll buy it though, I'm a chump.

Making this, what, a Greatest Hits of the Last Three Albums? Or is Paul expecting people to thrash out to "Mr. Kite?"

Personally, I'd be absolutely shocked if there were even one previously unreleased Beatles song worth hearing, though even if all it is is 3 minutes of Ringo farting into a mic, I'm sure people will buy it.

I love this technique of gathering up recordings which were deemed unworthy of release even at the time they were written, stitching them together and calling them songs, and then releasing a bundle of them as an album. Perhaps a Tin Machine III could be assembled in this fashion.

To be equal you have to add or subtract and I have never liked math.

It'd surprise me too, but who knows what's in those vaults? so many court cases over the years and that Apple debacle, perhaps this is a foretaste of the albums all being remastered.

Correct it is! but I copied and pasted this from an american source and felt it only right to use their native spelling

Re: Greatest Hits Without the Letter E in the Titl new [re: diamondogz74]  

Actually, we know exactly what is in the vaults regarding the Beatles, as it has all been listened to and logged and released in the book by Mark Lewisohn, The Complete Beatles recording sessions. Everything that has been susequently released on the Anthologies was all written about in this book in 1988. The only songs unreleased (new songs as opposed to different versions) would be something from the sessions of Let it be. The only stuff that hasn't been released from these sessions, from memory are some remakes of earlier Beatles tracks, which are said to be dire, or more rock and roll classics that they played at the time of Rip it up, shake rattle and roll and blue suede shoes.

The only things not written about in this book is home demo's which were recorded on domestic cassette recorders mainly and are usually acoustic, which wouldn't fit in to the 'heavy' concept of the rerelease.

Only one song which was released on Anthology is not mentioned in the book and that is the previously unknown song by George Harrison 'you know what to do'. This tape had been mislabeled in 1964 and was not discovered until they started looking through the EMI tape archive in the early 90s.
