The Beatles- The Lost Album

While the Beatles had successful solo careers, there’s always that question: what if they stayed together? This is a simple tracking list for a supposed album. I’m not saying it’s real. This is a list of solo career songs that were recorded and rehearsed when the Beatles were still together. My source for information comes from the fablous The Unreleased Beatles by Richie Unterberger. All the songs are in order by year recorded.

1. “Junk”

Notes: On Anthology 3, there is a demo recording of “Junk”.

2. “Circles”

  1. This bootleg album actually exists, all tracks you've listed (and much more). Look this: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1PeNnw3PcfrMJpYUMvLQySzmqkZRP5aM0 (free download link entire album) The Beatles - The Lost Album - 2017 - Extended Edition (6 CDs) Bootleg - NOT FOR SALE!
    Amazing rare and ultra rare unreleased Beatles songs. This is the best Beatles Bootleg so far, on best quality.
    The album had a great production and sounds like a George Martin/Jeff Lynne's production (as in the sensitivity to choose tracklist order, fix tracks, clean up, tracks transitions, mix, cover art, etc.). The collection is incredibly complete of unreleased Beatles tracks (only few songs were left out: some covers/improvisations/jam with low quality-performance production).
    In short: unlike most bootlegs that are just a put together rarities, this album is very well-architected in its concept and you feel the pleasure of listening to a "lost classic Beatles album". Highly recommended.
