This is a restoration of the famous Beatles bootleg "20 x 4" originally issued 1977 on Ruthless Rhymes JPGR 1177. It was reissued in 1979 and 1981 on JPGR REMIME OBS-204 with the last track on Side 2 omitted, in lesser sound quality. Most people who own this bootleg have one of the reissues. The original pressing is very, very scarce.

The pressing was in such sad shape. Over four million scratches were removed. The sound of the turntable and the vinyl have been removed. Hum and odd frequencies have been filtered out. The recordings have been restored to true mono and pitch corrected to A=440 Hz.

According to reliable sources, it may be Take 26 (20 Apr 1969) + overdubs (26 Apr 1969) or Take 26 RS1.

Fake

Not the Beatles.
It has also been presented, even more implausibly, as a Syd Barrett demo tape.
Allegedly recorded in June 1967 during the Sgt. Pepper recording sessions and found in the Apple trash can in 1970. Also known as "Candle Burns".

"Peace Of Mind", which may or may not be The Beatles, that has had all of its pitch variations ironed out flat so that it does not speed up at any point, as the original did. This is as close to how the original tapes sounded as it is possible to get without having the tapes.

On the original album this song was titled "Penny O'Dell" by the bootleggers, which was said to be from Paul McCartney's 1974 Nashville recording sessions. This is not the case. Track 7 is a monitor mix, recorded on a portable cassette deck, by a person sitting in the control room at The Soundshop in Nashville. During a lull in the playback, he quite clearly says "Kenny O'Dell". That's whose session it was. Who knows how it ended up on a Beatles bootleg? This song is called "Homecoming Queen", written by Kenny O'Dell and Larry Henley (of The Newbeats) and it was issued in 1972 on the B-side of the single "Lizzie And The Rain Man" on Kapp K-2178.

Tilleul's note: 3 versions are referenced by Madinger/Easter .... I've assumed it's the same as on "Miscellaneous Tracks" (YD/Orange 018) which is probably the best known version of all ... if you have more info about this particular version on this disc, mail me....

Review by: gmitroOn 20 May 2013 at 19:05 CEST
This is a remastered edition of a classic vinyl bootleg of the 1970s. The sound on this edition is a vast iimprovement from the vinyl. It's an ecclectic selection od songs/commercials/promos from all four beatles both solo and as a group. It's nice to hear the promo for 'Hi Hi Hi' and 'C Moon' along with Ringo's wine cooler commercials without the endless repetitions that are found on other discs and it's interesting to hear 'My Carnival' as captured by the news crew. Overall, it's an enjoyable listening experience.
