If you go to flea markets, yard sales, etc to hunt for rare bargains and haven't found anything worth having, don't give up!

It's just a shame that it probably sounds like something we'll never see or hear. :(

Unless, someone like Paul decides to get it. But I guess that would result in the same thing. "Not for release", indeed!

Peace,
Adam.

"There was also reel-to-reel tape marked “Abbey Road... not for release“, which featured alternative recordings of classic songs such as Cry Baby Cry and We Can Work It Out."


I could be wrong but isn't We Can Work it out a song from Rubber Soul?

Abbey Road possibly indicating the studio involved, not the target album...

Sorry about the problem with the link!
It was late roadie Mal Evans' "Beatles archives". God, what a Holy Grail of a find though!! It's like finding the Hope diamond in a pile of dog-do.
Can you imagine what that person will make if she happens to "sell" it back -- or, out of the goodness of her heart, "give" it to Paul or Ringo, or to Mal Evans' widow?
HMM!! Stay tuned, this will be interesting indeed!

'Bidding war' for Beatles treasure

By Jamie Duncan

July 13, 2004

THE discovery of a treasure trove of Beatles memorabilia at a Victorian flea market was like finding a Van Gogh or Rembrandt painting in someone's back shed, pop guru Molly Meldrum said today.


Meldrum said from his Melbourne home that the find could spark a bidding war between Beatle Paul McCartney and Yoko Ono.

The Times newspaper in London reported yesterday that a British traveller bought a battered suitcase full of Beatles memorabilia – including recordings, photographs and concert programs – for $50 at a market near Geelong, south-west of Melbourne, earlier this year.


The collection was thought to be the long-lost archive of one of the British band's close associates, sound recordist and session musician Mal Evans, The Times said.


Mr Evans died in 1976, but rumours of his collection, which he compiled for a memoir he never completed, have tantalised Beatles collectors for years.

Among tapes inside the suitcase were alternative versions of well-known songs such as We Can Work It Out and some new material, a pop memorabilia consultant for auctioneers Christie's told The Times.


One four-and-a-half-hour recording on reel-to-reel tape included Beatles Paul McCartney and John Lennon talking as they experimented with previously unknown versions of songs, the paper added.


Meldrum, a long-time Beatles fan, said if the find was genuine, it was one of music's most significant discoveries.


"If the recording of John and Paul working on different versions of tracks such as We Can Work It Out is genuine, you really are talking, in a sort of sense, about someone finding a Van Gogh or a Rembrandt in someone's back shed," Meldrum said.


Meldrum speculated that if the memorabilia proved to be authentic, Paul McCartney and Yoko Ono could battle to buy the collection.


"Both have a direct affinity and I wouldn't be surprised if they get into a bidding war," he said.


"If we find this is ridgy-didge, I think Paul and Yoko will be going for it."


The pair had battled for ownership of The Beatles song publishing rights in the mid-80s, before they were snapped up by pop singer Michael Jackson, Meldrum said.
