Could someone (a Photoshop artist) please provide a mock-up of possible album/CD covers?

Someone already did it.

Nice read on George's embrace of world beat music and legacy re the same. Be sure to listen to the ukulele version of While MY Guitar Gently Weeps. It is simply stunning, IMHO.

slow down (by Larry Williams) beatles live at bbc

i've always said, since age 12, and will always say, even now almost as
old as Ron I guess, (and I'd bet he'd think so too), that
before all that rubber soul revolver stuff, as much as I 'dug' it at
the time, that these guys were a crisp tight live band with a lot of
connection and passion when they were still fresh-ish from the rigorous
constant club grind in two countries...even after signed by George Martin,
and pete best got the boot... and acing the biggest places
anyone could lease with a whole lot of presence. before they fell in hate
with each other.

i think they sorta collapsed after this; knew it and stopped;
worn out and down; the contracts those days demanded two full LP
releases a year; that's a lot of material; and the rest of it
constant touring, recording, press....it was right to stop....
i've heard the Japan and some of the horrid stuff at the end;
they were good boys too; really trying; not phoning it in;
but they could not hide some sense of detachment, like they
were watching the same movie every day all day and night long
forever....not hearing themselve out of tune but pressing on;
we know those guys could at least sing harmonies but even their
solo lead vokes, well pauls anyway, started to suck; and he really
had this brilliant, brilliant voice.

I mean he got it back; even the harmonies were off;
i'm sure there were not proper monitors, if any at all.
they were over as a hungry band putting it down;
and been ahead of the curve that soon left them behind
when they descended as The Stones hit the most powerful stride
in concert and on record that
I can think of, ever...
.,. outside of a few cats who inspired THEM.
not meaning the van morrison THEM, but hey, they played the same
bill as Stones in 65.

you're gonna lose that girl,
what lp that from?
i'm a sucker for that kinda stuff.
not quite super production

but aahh that Meet the Beatles was crsip; that Beatles 2nd Album, as
sold in north america, whoa Beatles 65....they are taking on Little Richard
and the blowing the Royal Family away with Isley Brothers, during their
earliest days when the movies were soon next; they knew wattup w influences.

i had this Capitol Records The Early Beatles; and also those earliest
tracks were released on Vee Jay Records with the worst cover slick ever
in the long history of bad album covers....
but Baby It's You. Just thinking of John's version of that makes me want
to put it on.
I was even crazy for Cry For A Shadow, their instrumental B side, as back up
band for Tony Sheridan. I think it's the first actual
The Beatles
recorded and released as such; but could be off on that.
I still listen to it; and not for nostalgia; those guys were into it.
On Swan Record I think. You had to really search for it back then earliest
days of invasion.


but here live on bbc....it's raw and untutored....johns voice...

This is the John that I guess I still think
is easily one of the greatest rock and roll singers that ever walked this
earth.

i guess it's lucky in a way, that the contracts were like slavery,
because they released a whole lot of stuff before the stuff that
everybody mostly seems to remember these days.

i'm not gonna go to "i'm so happy when you dance with me' too very often
but...
..well unless Dylan does it; then I'm ALL in for sure.
he really Should; thinking the stuff he can lay on ya these days all cole porter and etc...

and they did put up on the roof at abbey road; and inside of it; tho honestly
I rarely do go back to abbey road; i thought it super brilliant; maybe i played
it out. I should give it a fresh listen; but it's not my first or second choice....
i'm going mostly in another direction w my own tastes for a long time now...
and still opening up those doors to new influences, for me anyway;
... everything good, mostly for me, has been around awhile..ane i like going back to even much, much older ones.

even when into 'girl' and something like that,
Martin wasn't overdoing it; it was just them four doing it,
overdubs or not; on mostr of it; maybe he'd add piano before
the guys were playing well enough but that was it.

they were proud of that 'double track' or 'overdub' i dont remember
how exactly they worded it; but they advertised it
on the back cover, as the New Sensation (my words) on the back of
Meet the Beats. i don't have it anymore but must've read it a thousand times.
I was 12, so I really
knew a lot more about what was really credible, more than now...lol,
kid had to go on instinct; it got ya or didn't.
they were a sensation; they brought me The Rolling Stones.
They brought them to you too.
personally; you know the george story; he gave decca a shot
at solving their embarassment problem, (that exec PASSED on The Beatles!)
and took the exec to see
the very early club-era Rolling Stones,
and they wre signed to a recording contract...
thumbs up

...then john and paul royally selling em a song; sorta leading the way w that;
at least Andrew, working for The Beats, thought so.

....george ever so distinctly george; and somehow, tho musta bin
the same pirate as the others fo sho, stayed completely perfectly wry george.

sure, nothin's gonna top Larry William's rejected takes lol, but
this still hits me crisp.

A few words regarding the Beatles sounding “off-key”: the second Ed Sullivan Show, Philadelphia ‘64 and both Paris ‘65 shows they were tuned a half step low, probably so Paul could hit the high notes. Also, John wold sometimes play a chord voicing different than on the record. Tokyo ‘66, for example: on the single “Day Tripper” the E minor to E minor 7 is played ( under George’s signature lick) at the end of the neck. Watch and listen how John plays it higher up as a barre chord.

The Beatles: Yellow Submarine / Eleanor Rigby seven-inch picture disc

"This July, Universal Music and Apple Corps will issue a special anniversary seven-inch picture disc of The Beatles‘ 1966 single Yellow Submarine.

This celebrates the anniversary of the release of the original animated film which is 50 years old this year and is returning to the big screen for a special ‘one-day cinema event’ on 8 July.

The actual single is almost 52 years old and was issued in August 1966 as the follow up to Paperback Writer. It reached number one in the UK and most other territories, although interestingly it ‘only’ peaked at number two in the USA.

The B-side, Eleanor Rigby, also features memorably in the Yellow Submarine film and both songs feature on The Beatles’ seventh album, Revolver, which was released around the same time as the original single

In fact, as many of you will be aware, there has already been a picture disc of this single (see image to the right) issued in 1986 when EMI were roughly half way through their 20th anniversary edition picture disc campaign!

This new seven-inch vinyl picture disc comes in a die-cut sleeve and will be released on Friday 6 July, two days before the film is shown in cinemas around the world."

Its rumoured McCartney has a new album coming out, so it very well could be that. And that weird drawing is the album cover. I do think a White Album reissue is coming, as has been hinted at, but I think Macca's Facebook and Twitter thing has to do with a new album. Hope I'm wrong cause I'd prefer a White Album box.

Now I'm almost certain its just a new album, as per one of the comments on his Facebook:
“He does not promote Beatles albums here.”

Yes it's been pretty much confirmed by Giles Martin. thumbs up
As for Paul , while he updated his facebook profile pic with the black line drawing on white background, he also updated his cover photo which is pure and simple white.
While he may not officially promote the Beatles in his fb page, he could be sending out a hint or "subliminal" message open to interpretation, and I see it as a nod to the upcoming White album deluxe.

Beatles albums

Thanks for that sundevil - it's sort of a small miracle after being denied a majority of Beatles tunes on youtube for so long by the powers that be.
Occasionally someone would put up a bunch of tunes, but they'd only last a few weeks at most before getting deleted.

I even see Anthology I,II, and III up there, but what I don't see is Live at the BBC I & II, nor the Live at the Hollywood Bowl which I think was recently remastered?
I also see they've all been "updated today", so maybe/hopefully there's more to come!

PAUL McCARTNEY TO RELEASE ALL-NEW DOUBLE A-SIDE SINGLE
'I DON’T KNOW'/'COME ON TO ME'
AVAILABLE WEDNESDAY 20th JUNE on CAPITOL RECORDS



Following a whirlwind week that saw his Instagram presence rebooted as he played one of the most intimate gigs of his storied career, Paul McCartney is done keeping the world in suspense: 'I Don’t Know' and 'Come On To Me', will be released tomorrow as a double A-Side single.

The first tastes of Paul’s brand new studio album due out later this year on Capitol Records, the two A-sides are polar opposites: 'I Don’t Know' being a plaintive, soul-soothing ballad as only Paul can deliver, and 'Come On To Me' a raucous stomper that fans that first spark of chemistry into a rocking blaze.

Worldwide speculation about a new Paul McCartney album instantly reached fever pitch as his Instagram account whited out last week—only to ratchet higher as Paul was spotted taking selfies at landmarks in Liverpool the same day. The evening’s climactic event was a surprise gig at the tiny Liverpool Philharmonic Pub, during which 'Come On To Me' made its live debut alongside a set of classics spanning Paul’s career.

Paul’s new album is slated for fall 2018 release on Capitol Records. Further details will be announced shortly.
