** 'Lost' Beatles Track **
LONDON, England -- A "lost" Beatles track recorded in 1967 and performed just once in public could finally be released, according to Paul McCartney.

"Carnival of Light" -- a 14-minute experimental track recorded at the height of the Beatles' musical experimentations with psychedelia and inspired by avant-garde composers such as Karlheinz Stockhausen -- has long been considered too adventurous for mainstream audiences.

In an interview for BBC radio, McCartney said his bandmates and their producer George Martin had vetoed its inclusion on the exhaustive 1990s "Anthology" collection, according to UK's The Observer newspaper.

McCartney confirmed he still owned the master tapes, adding that he suspected "the time has come for it to get its moment," The Observer reported. "I like it because it's the Beatles free, going off piste," McCartney said.

Almost everything recorded by the Beatles from their early days in Liverpool and Hamburg to their break-up in 1970 has been released to meet insatiable public appetite for anything to do with the legendary Liverpool quartet.

In the 40 years since its recording, "Carnival of Light" has acquired near mythical status among Beatles fans who argue that the existence of the track provides evidence of the group's experimental ambitions beyond their commercially successfully pop career.

The improvised work features distorted electric guitars, discordant sound effects, a church organ and gargling interspersed with McCartney and John Lennon shouting random phrases like "Barcelona" and "Are you all right?"

McCartney would need the consent of Lennon's widow, Yoko Ono, and George Harrison's widow, Olivia Harrison, to release the track.

I know of that song. From what I understand, it's not much of a song. Mostly just them experimenting and going nuts. But as a total Beatles freak, I'd love to hear it! Goofy Thum

I like Revolution no 9 from the white album. Must have heard it 200 times. Strange recording and one I haven't tired of yet like all the Beatles works

The carnival of light I am looking forward to playing it all month long

I have a copy of the Beatles and Rolf Harris doing a rewritten version of "Tie me kangaroo down sport", this was after Paul was knighted as Rolf refers to Paul as "Sir Paul".

I hope they don't release it in some stupid way that you have to pay 16.95 for a CD for. Release it to the world for free.
And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.

The boys did plenty of charity, but people still had to buy their records - where else would their money have come from ;)

Anyway, i'm looking forward to hearing this. I've got a bootleg of White Album session tapes and there is an awful lot of random chatter and jamming between takes.

Oh, and someone made the criminal mistake of giving Yoko Ono her own mic :O

Yup, the session tapes have plenty of that. Mostly Yoko telling us how she misses John (even though he's only on the other side of the room) and talking about what shopping they need to do, and other such nonsense.

And i agree - MOAR BEATLES THREADS!!!111one
