Proof That Abbey Road Wasn’t Supposed To Be Beatles Final Album
Everyone that knows me is well aware that I'm a huge Beatles fan and that Abbey road is my favorite Beatles album. It's also well known that I'm skeptical of so-called "new" revelations about the Beatles and am very disappointed that there isn't more undiscovered studio film for us to enjoy. That having been said, I am looking forward to the new Martin Scorsese project from the "Let It Be" sessions. Then comes this nugget from a very reliable source.
In an article on msn.com, Rock historian and trusted Beatles expert Mark Lewisohn released a tape to The Guardian, recorded 50 years ago this week, that may prove Abbey Road wasn't their swan song at all. Here's an excerpt:
According to The Guardian, the audio starts with Lennon saying: "Ringo - you can't be here, but this is so you can hear what we're discussing."
Having just wrapped up the recording of "Abbey Road," their final recorded studio album (though "Let it Be" was the last to be released), the group then go on to talk about their plans to make another album, with Lennon proposing that each of them suggest songs that could be used for the single.
He also suggests he, Paul McCartney, and George Harrison should get four songs each, with two from Starr "if he wants them."
It has previously been thought that Lennon was integral to the breakup of the Beatles, but the tape suggests that, at least at this point in their history, that was not entirely the case.
This has officially blown my mind!!! Get more of the article by clicking HERE.
