NOT FADE AWAY 1969 - 1971 SUE ME SUE YOU 1972 - 1975 AS TIME GOES BY 1976 - 1980 FREE AS A BIRD 1981 - 1994

When Paul McCartney "officially" announced the breakup of The Beatles in March 1970, it came as a shock to millions of Beatles fans. However, those who closely followed the Fab Four were not surprised.
Dissention among the band had begun as early as 1968 during the recording of the White Album.
The White Album was clearly a collection of solo songs released as The Beatles. Many of the songs were recorded by only two or three of The Beatles and some- times only by the song's author. By the time "Let It Be" was being produced, it was clear The Beatles' days were numbered. Somehow, though, John, Paul, George and Ringo were able to go back into the studio and record their finest album, "Abbey Road". But the magic which brought them together to record "Abbey Road" could not be recreated again and the end of The Beatles became a sad reality. Thankfully, the music did not end. John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr continued to write, record and perform hundreds of hours of music after the breakup. Life and music goes on...bra!
As performers, artists and songwriters their careers saw many ebbs and flows. Each would realise great successes as well as some public and private failures. Throughout it all the ex-Beatles could never escape The Beatles' shadow. Rumours of Beatles reunions went on for years until finally all hope of a reunion died with the senseless murder of John Ono Lennon in 1980.
ARTIFACTS III is a small sampling of rare and unreleased songs chronologically arranged to allow a perspective of where the ex-Beatles were musically and ideologically during similar time periods. For instance, in 1971 while John was singing "Imagine", Paul was recording "Back Seat Of My Car". Ringo sang "It Don't Come Easy" and George was performing for the Concerts for Bangla Desh. So sit back and enjoy the latest edition of ARTIFACTS: THE SOLO YEARS.

Song
Rehearsal
24 Nov 1974
John Lennon

20.
Go See The Mardi Gras(Professor Longhair)
Song
Version details available
Unreleased
Feb 1975
Paul McCartney
Listed as "My Carnival"
"New Orleans" was the original title of "My Carnival". This early version has different lyrics than the final take which Paul and Wings performed for the TV cameras in New Orleans. Paul also sang "Baby Face" with the Tuxedo Jazz Band.

Additional info from Reid Mitchell (reidmitchell@yahoo.com):
This song is often misidentified as an earlier version of Paul's My Carnival. What it is is Paul doing a song by New Orleans singer-pianist Professor Longhair
named "Go See the Mardi Gras." During his New Orleans sojourn, McCartney became a huge fan of Fess. He hired Fess to play a concert, had it recorded, and produced and released the album.
21.
No No Song(Axton/Jackson)
Song
TV
Smothers Brothers
28 Apr 1975
Ringo Starr
Ringo sang the "No No Song" with Dick and Tom Smothers on the U.S. TV show. Three weeks previous Ringo had formed a new record company, Ring O' Records. It fared poorly.
22.
Hi Hi Hi(McCartney)
Song
Concert
Southampton
13 Nov 1975
C1975.11.13
Paul McCartney
Wings in 1975 were a "real" band, though Paul was still very much the leader and the main draw at concerts. "Hi Hi Hi" illustrates how strong the band had become by the time they began their world tour in Southampton.
23.
The Pirate Song(Harrison/Idle)

TV1975.12.13.04
George Harrison
Christmas with Rutland Weekend Television
George appeared in the pre-taped TV comedy show, "Rutland Weekend Television" wanting to be a pirate.
This was a not-so-subtle reference to the "My Sweet Lord/He's So Fine" copyright lawsuit which George had unjustly lost.

Reviews

Review by: Tracy Hoffman, anti666luv@aol.comOn 03 Feb 2000
Like the others in this series, and the "BIG" titles in general, the sound varies, and the songs vary from rare, hard to find items, to poorly recorded TV shows, and live cuts. It is a shame so many of the more interesting songs, like the long version of "6 O'Clock" have severe wobbling problems in areas, or patchy tape hiss distortions. So putting the bad aside, you do get a smorgasbord of treats. A song from the 72 john and Paul jam, some Demos, Macca outtakes, alternate versions, live versions, TV shows. If the vast changes in fidelity of the songs doesn't bother you, nor the jumping around of musical textures and venues, then go ahead and obtain this CD. There are enough gems in the mud to make it worth your purchase.
