1997-May-21: 1974 Lennon/McCartney session tape "found"

(hg) Last Saturday, Paul did not answer the question about his underwear (but D.L. did during the latest NY Beatlefest <g>). However, he confirmed that a recording session with together with John Lennon and a bunch of other high-profile musicians took place in 1974. But we've known that before - this session was released (in excellent sound quality) on the bootleg CD A Toot And A Snore in 1974 on the Mistral label in the early 1990s (please see that page for more info, including an excellent transcription by Malcolm Atkinson of New Zealand). Before you go out and seek for this bootleg - be warned: the contents are not very worthwhile. Paul ended up playing drums - his voice is barely audible.

Anyway, Paul's confirmation inspired a Philip Aldridge to "find" this 35-minute tape (the bootleg CD is slightly less than 30 mins in length) which he remembers having bought from a Californian collector in 1985 for $320. Aldridge is reported to have said he didn't know it was originating from the 1970s. He intends to sell it now for $3,200,000 - ARGH! Paul, I'll give you my copy of this bootleg CD for free!
