Yesterday, the New York Library for the Performing Arts hosted the world premiere of the footage of the 1994 McCartney-Starr-Harrison jam session which will soon be released on The Beatles Anthology DVD. (see February 24). The film was shown during a news conference held to announce the April 1 release of the box set.
In the film, the three Beatles perform Baby What You Want Me to Do, Raunchy, Thinking of Linking, Blue Moon of Kentucky, and Ain't She Sweet. During the news conference, Neil Aspinall, managing director of Apple Corps Ltd., announced that there are no plans to release these songs as a new Beatles' album. However, Mr. Aspinall did say to look for a remastered version of Let It Be at the end of the year. It will contain tracks from the 50 - 60 hours of unreleased Beatles material recently discovered in the Netherlands (see January 10) and Australia. According to Mr. Aspinall:"With The Beatles, there always seem to be surprises. We keep finding things."David Munns of EMI added that it won't be long before Beatles tunes are available for legitimate download on the Internet.
