The newest development in the “Revolution 1” leak story

24 02 2009

Many of you know that yesterday an alleged previously unreleased version of “Revolution 1,” take 20 to be exact, was “leaked” onto the internet and caused something of a firestorm.

I doubted the authenticity of this thing as a Beatles mix.  Sure, it is Beatles music and incorporates elements of both the released “Revolution 1” and “Revolution 9.”  My suspicion was, and still is, that this “newly discovered” Beatles take is a modern mash-up.

But, EMI has pulled the video from youtube.  Perhaps that is only because the mpeg includes, at least in part, previously released material.  But, perhaps it’s because take 20 is authentic.  Why would EMI worry if this were nothing more than a mash-up?

Hmmm. Wondering.
