Meet The Threetles! [Purple Chick PC-60, 1CD]
Various dates and venues; soundboard mixes.

LDiaz, bootlegzone:
These are mainly the 5.1 DVD/Oops mixes. You must like “Free As A Bird” & “Real Love” in order to really want this disc.

onosideboards, bootlegzone:
get this disc just for the nice extractions of the “threetles” jamming. where else can you find a CD with those songs? come on, continue your collection with where the three remaining beatles ended. i also found myself really like one of the remixes. track 9 is a version of FAAB better than the released version. i got chills. simply amazing. that’s the way it should have sounded.

foolonthehill, bootlegzone:
It’s great to hear the complete “Threetle” jams, all in one place. Whether or not you really want to hear all those Free As A Bird and Real Love tracks is irrelevant - get the disc for tracks 1-7. All Those Years Ago is cool too.

MedicineJar1976, bootlegzone:
Took me over 10 years to find Mr Godley but I did I hope the info on track 22 (below) is useful to everyone.

* Kevin Goodley was contacted by mail by Bootlegzone member MedicineJar76: “My involvement in the anthology was non-existent I’m afraid. I was simply hired to direct a promo video for ‘REAL LOVE’. The recording studio footage used in the promo was supplied to me by APPLE/MPL along with all the other archive material. I shot a piano, clothes and instruments falling in slow motion plus super slow motion portraits of PAUL, GEORGE and RINGO to match JOHN’s original slow mo’ sequence. The ‘Kevin Godley’ vocal was something I overdubbed as a technical guide during our video edit sessions to make the vocal track stand out a bit more to help us cut shots to the lyrics. No studio session was involved as it was purely a guide. We just mixed my ‘tech’ vocal, low, into the stereo mix in the edit suite. As far as I know my vocal overdub was removed for the final video cut.”

  2. Seems odd for it coming so late in their career. But more and more, “Real Love” has become my favorite Beatles song. It was where John was then and the “Threetles” needed to be. Thanks for this BigO; the amount of Beatle material you have given us is astounding.
