almost beatles songs
Sometime in the early seventies, over 500 reels of Beatles tapes were stolen from a cupboard at the group’s Apple Corps headquarters in London.
Three decades later, Dutch police raided a warehouse in the Netherlands, and recovered the missing reels - but not before bootleggers leaked virtually all of the priceless recordings onto the black market.
Beatles enthusiasts pored over the tapes, but soon discovered the sheer volume, along with poor sound quality, rendered them little more than a curious footnote for fans.
Yet, a closer listen reveals something hardcore historians have known for decades – the stolen tapes are a holy grail of unreleased Beatles music.
‘almost beatles songs’ offers a live immersive presentation of these stunningly beautiful abandoned Beatles songs discovered on the stolen tapes, newly arranged and reimagined by others.
