THE BEATLES
The Forgotten Abbey Road Sessions [Forgotten Records 2010, 2CD]

Sessions and outtakes. Twickenham & Apple Studios, London, UK; 1969. Very good soundboard.

Thanks to helter_skelter80 for the efforts; and for sharing the tracks at The Traders’ Den.

helter_skelter80 noted:

The ‘Get Back’ Sessions are remembered as a fractious time in the history of the Fab 4, and as the sessions which ultimately spawned the ‘Let It Be’ Album. However, amongst almost 100 hours of Nagra Rolls, the seeds were also sown for the famous ‘Abbey Road’ Album. This album is Part 1 in a Collection of the best forgotten ‘Abbey Road’ Album Sessions, recorded in Twickenham & Apple Studios in January 1969. Edited from the lossless Complete A/B Road Set, for the very first time this sets pieces together the finest takes of these songs that would ultimately become ‘Abbey Road.’

This set contains none of the ‘flab’ that many of the ‘Get Back’ Sessions includes, it has been carefully ‘Reworked’ and Edited from the Complete A/B Road Collection to include only the best takes of the tracks that became Abbey Road. No board announcements, etc, just the best of JPGR!

Each file is taken from the Get Back A/B Road Purple Chick (which was compiled itself from Yellow Dog & Unicorn CDs, etc). I took each track from this lossless set and has been edited by me in order to remove the film board announcements, and make the set more ‘listenable.’ I then individually remastered each track to ensure dialogue was audible, and attempted to clean up a little of the level imbalance in many of the tracks. I wanted this set to be more user friendly, bringing the best out of the Get back Sessions of Abbey Road Album tracks.

  13. This (still) is a Music site. Listening to Beatle Outtakes via Purple Chick is marvelous for those of us who can’t get enough. However, there are people who have issues - with Blacks, Jews and other minorities. Those folks have a Serious Problem. It’s called “Inability To Think.” Symptoms include: Bias, Predispose, Indoctrinate, and Exaggerate. They don’t like words like “Community”, “Justice”, “Civility”, and “Impartiality”. It IS strongly urged that they seek medical attention.

    Wave on, wave on”

  14. I don’t much care for people who are judgmental.

    Anyhow, thank you for this, BigO.

  15. I always loved the Beatles music . Their personas were so larger than life that I naturally assumed that they had penises to match . Finding out that wasn’t true has been an eye opening disappointment.

    By Anne on Feb 26, 2020

  16. The later Beatles music is fantastic of course but my favourite period is defo Rubber Soul to Revolver…still Classic

    By Sarah Novak on Feb 26, 2020

  17. Harmon the hardon must a dirty filthy sting kyke

    By Der Fuhrer on Feb 26, 2020

  18. stinking

    By Der Fuhrer on Feb 26, 2020

  19. You’re all fags. Every last semen guzzling one of you.

    By Cracky on Feb 26, 2020

  20. Harmon is a motherfuckin, Dic suckin jew bastard just like Mark , Russ , and the rest . Fuck man . Just think coons should go back to Africa and stop breeding with white bitches creating hi yellers and Jews should go back to Israel, Muslims go back to Iran / Syria etc also get rid of the gooks Mexicans and Indians too. Send em all back where they came from

    By Derrick on Feb 26, 2020

  21. Hey Anti , folks think this shit is good . Bull fuckin shit man . I’m with you the motherfuckin White album was the best album the Beatles ever did . Overall Led Zep , The Stones/ Who / Ten Years after/ Floyd / Purple / Cactus/ Alice Cooper ( the band before the fuckin singer hijacked the name for hisself) Allman Brothers , Sabbath , all better than the fuckin Beatles

    By Derrick on Feb 26, 2020

  22. If the men in the white sheets was still around we wouldn’t have all that coon with white women bullshit . The coons would get a hot tar and feather bath before getting strung up to a tree limb and the white bitches would get run of of town on a rail . Hi yeller kids should all go to coon families

    By Derrick on Feb 26, 2020

  23. derrick , the white whores who fuck black ape niggers are called mudsharks . Usually they are overweight tattooed sluts with cellulite thighs who live in trashy trailer parks . These women usually have orgasims when the get punched in the face or stomach which these violent apes are more than happy to do . Basic trailer trash .

    By HHH on Feb 26, 2020

  24. These sluts often have hairy armpits and vaginas that smell like a trash can full of rotting fish.

    By HHH on Feb 26, 2020

  25. Derrick, HHH, how is it these guys know so much bout coc. I find all that talk about coc and head size repulsive and disgusting. Do u think these guys are just plain flaming faggots

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Feb 26, 2020

  26. They is definitely faggots here Anti . Talk of big ones and all that shit . Fuck em all . Most is probably jew bastards like Mark . I know he sucks dics . I’d put money on it

    By Derrick on Feb 26, 2020

  27. Harmon and Russ probably suck Dics too

    By Derrick on Feb 26, 2020

  28. Derrick - are you still sick? here’s hoping you die like the sick dog you are. something painful, too.

    By Billy on Feb 27, 2020

  29. Derrick, HHH, Antichrist, and other douchebags, allez vous faire enculer, ça vous fera le plus grand bien, as we say in France (if you ignorami know where France is, of course).

    By JLF on Feb 27, 2020

  30. JLF , your country is so overrun with Muslims and mosques that I expect shariah law to be inforced any time . That’s open borders folks , let the Middle East savages in and there goes the country. UK almost as bad and America is heading that way too. We have Muslims like Towel Head Omar in congress. I’m sure a presidential run in coming then her ISIS bosses will take charge . It’s almost like 9/11 never happened.

    By HHH on Feb 27, 2020

  31. JLF, your country is a trou de merde

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Feb 27, 2020

  32. another words JLF Va te faire foutre, connard

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Feb 27, 2020

  33. Billy is another motherfuckin Dic suckin jew bastard like Mark , Russ Harmon etc

    By Derrick on Feb 27, 2020

  34. Wouldn’t surprise me if they all is Mark

    By Derrick on Feb 27, 2020

  35. Hey Anti . What do you think will happen to that Jew bastard Weinstein?

    By Derrick on Feb 27, 2020

  36. Heard he’s in the fuckin hospital tryin to dodge the big house

    By Derrick on Feb 27, 2020

  37. Some Big Dic coons await his jew ass

    By Derrick on Feb 27, 2020

  38. I’m hoping when he gets sentenced the judge will give him the max, 29 years. Yeah he’s not sick. He doesnt want to go to Rikers Island. I hear he is not going to general population. They are gonna keep that jew bastard in protective custody all by himself

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Feb 27, 2020

  39. The niggers hate criminals that are pedophiles and rapists. His arsehole would belong to a bunch of them jungle bunnies

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Feb 27, 2020

  40. Weinstein is gonna get an asshole full of black Dic over the next 20 years.

    By Nelson on Feb 27, 2020

  41. HHH - don’t be so silly! Have you even been to the UK or France? Think I’d sooner stay and visit France than visit the US of A after all you are busy shooting yourselves to the tune of more of your people than died in any world war!! Let that sink in for a moment . . . you have shot more of your own people your own CIVILIANS than soldiers have died in ANY world war . . . not individually that’s COMBINED.
    Visit the USA home of the brave and the land of the free? Yeah right! Who in their right minds would want to even visit let alone live there?

    (Now if we could only convince them to carry on with the wall and make it go right round and throw away the key the world would be a better place.)

    By swappers on Feb 27, 2020

  42. I watch a lot of British tv . They make biracial couples appear commonplace. America is violent no doubt . But it’s mainly the nigger black apes . Black apes are genetically predisposed to violence. After all they come from Africa. Home of their cousin the gorilla .

    By HHH on Feb 27, 2020

  43. I despise what Harvey Weinstein represents. The bad thing about all this is that many men are now going to be terrified of women . Because of Weinstein, Epstein and others the me too movement is now a monster. A glance or asking a woman for a date may be considered harassment. Not all men are predators, but now reasons to be afraid of something being mis interpreted are going to be on everyone mind . It will affect hiring practices. Men will be afraid to be alone with women for fear of accusations. The me too movement is bringing many man hating women out of the woodwork.

    By CJ on Feb 27, 2020

  44. This set is fab. Thank you BigO.

    By Matt on Feb 27, 2020

  45. The United States is a nation drowning in corporate oligarchy and fascism. Posters here publicly flaunt their hateful sociopathology, venting their frustrations on innocent anonymous targets, instead of addressing the real oppressors, and rabidly vote for the biggest bully whom they think we hurt their chosen (but undeserved) victims.

    By buster on Feb 28, 2020

  46. Hello Swappers, you know, I had great fun in NYC, LA, SF, Austin TX.… Being civilised people, we French know how to make a difference between white trash and douches like the ones who eruct here and real great Americans. I’ve been pals with such incredible people as Jim Harrison, Jim Crumley, Art Spiegelman, The Cramps, so many sweet, intelligent, learned spirits… You live in a great country and for a long while we thought Fascism would never set foot on your shores. But now, this rabid pig Trump is there and it seems the whole game has changed… 

    By JLF on Mar 1, 2020

  47. Erm not sure I understand you JLF but hey interesting argument. I too used to enjoy my visits Stateside but heck don’t think I’d want to go anywhere post Trump. I enjoyed Boston, New York and worked in SF for a while which I loved but don’t think I’ll be going back any time soon the trolls will be pleased to know. It’s bad enough here with the alt-right knuckle draggers, there’s so much work to do and guess I’ll stay in Blighty. Might pop over to Europe on occasion but now it’s just gonna cost an arm and a loeg to get there!!

    By swappers on Mar 1, 2020

  48. As I stated earlier. Both France and the UK have been overrun with Muslims from the Middle East for some time . That and this acceptance of white / Blavk ape couples propaganda. Does that all sit well with you Swappers and JLF? I would certainly hope that you would find it as disturbing as myself. I’m sure Derrick and the Antichrist would agree .

    By HHH on Mar 1, 2020

  49. Right on triple h. The fuckin problem with other countries is that the men in the white sheets ain’t over there . We used to have em here but no more . That’s why you got jew bastards everywhere and coons fuckin white bitches creating hi yeller niglets. There ain’t gonna be a white race in a few more years at this rate

    By Derrick on Mar 1, 2020

  50. There was a time that that shit would get a coon a hot tar and feather bath , then a rope to a high tree limb . The bitch would then be run out of town on a rail . Can’t do that shit no more though. Coons is now free to stick their dics in white bitches . Fuckin white folks is doomed

    By Derrick on Mar 1, 2020

  51. Hey Anti , watched a old football game on YouTube. Colts vs Chiefs from 1970 . Second Monday night game ever . Johnny Unitas, Mike Mad Dog Curtis , Rick Volk, John Mackey , Bubba Smith , Tom Matte , Billy Ray Smith Sr for the colts . Lenny Dawson, Otis Taylor , Mike Garrett , Johnny Robinson, , Jan Stenirud. Coach Hank Stram for the chiefs . Howard Dandy Don and Keith Jackson called the game . Great fuckin memories

    By Derrick on Mar 1, 2020

  52. Shots on the sidelines showed 75 percent white players 25 percent coons . Now it’s 85 percent coon to 15 percent white and most of the whites is kickers , o linemen and special teamers. What the fuck happened in 50 fuckin years?

    By Derrick on Mar 1, 2020

  53. Nice to see players just hand the ball to the ref after a touchdown instead of that monkey acting shit them coons today do . Players had class back then

    By Derrick on Mar 1, 2020

  54. Even the coons was different. No tattoos, dreadlocks and behaved like gentleman

    By Derrick on Mar 1, 2020

  55. Derrick loves to suck us off.

    By Lots Of Coons on Mar 1, 2020

  56. You have a great memory Derrick. Couldnt agree with you more HHH. Right now Im focusing to stay positive and heal properly. THats why Im laying low but agree with what u said

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Mar 1, 2020

  57. Triple H - the population of non-europeans here is less then 5.5%
    FACT!

    By swappers on Mar 1, 2020

  58. My niece visited the UK ( London) three years ago and said she saw many dark skinned/ blacks / Middle Eastern Towel heads while over there . She visited the Canterbury cathedral among other places . Saw Thomas Beckets burying site and the church steps he was murdered.

    By HHH on Mar 1, 2020

  59. Wanted to take that little sub to France but her friend was afraid of terrorism. Bombings in France at the time . Muslims out of control over there as well as mixed couples.

    By HHH on Mar 1, 2020

  60. I don’t think the kkk was ever overseas but I’m not sure about that . Don’t know if it would have worked over there . We could sure use it here again though. Where have you gone David Duke ?

    By HHH on Mar 1, 2020

  61. Not me , but I’m sure the intelligent people know that . This place is a haven for the perverts.

    By HHH on Mar 2, 2020

  62. The 50 year olds with 10 year old minds must have their fun .

    By HHH on Mar 2, 2020

  63. Triple h it’s probably that motherfuckin Dic suckin jew bastard Mark with all his user names

    By Derrick on Mar 2, 2020

  64. Not me, Derrick. I only need one name and I stand behind what I write-except for crap other people write in my name. As much as I dislike your bigotry, I think it’s stupid that others are posting as you/HHH/Anti.
