There are many variations of the Esher demos circulating, speed corrected, phase corrected, remasters etc.
This is as good as you can get at the moment. :

1: Julia
2: Blackbird
3: Rocky Raccoon
4: Back In The U.S.S.R.
5: Honey Pie
6: Mother Nature's Son
7: Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da

10: Sexy Sadie
11: Cry Baby Cry
12: Child Of Nature

14: I'm So Tired
15: Yer Blues
16: Everybody's Got Something To Hide Except Me And My Monkey
17: What's The New Mary Jane
18: Revolution
19: While My Guitar Gently Weeps
20: Circles
21: Sour Milk Sea
22: Not Guilty
23: Piggies
24: Happiness Is A Warm Gun
25: Mean Mr. Mustard
26: Polythene Pam
27: Glass Onion
28: Junk (anthology mix)
29: Honey Pie (anthology mix)

Demos from George's house (Kinfauns) and John's house (Kenwood) in late May 1968.
For what it's worth, not only do tracks 1-23 sound better to us than on "From Kinfauns To Chaos"
but they're also in the 'correct order', at the correct speed and in true mono for the first
time (as best we can tell).
Purple Chick PC-135 (2007)


  1. Nice, thank you!

  2. Details! Details!
    Is there a difference between this, listed as The Beatles - The Beatles Deluxe Vol. 3(Disc 1) (from CDR)
    None I can see other than the name and the fan created artwork included... or is there?

  3. It's the same, the notes above the download button give you the clue

    "Purple Chick PC-135 (2007)"

    The artwork is Purple Chick's just inverted to a more appropriate colour!

  4. Excellent. Thank you.

  5. Would this be the same as "Beatles Unplugged" boot that i have? (complete with artwork/inserts)
    I'm assuming it is.
    How does it compare?

  6. The Beatles Unplugged dates from 1995 if its the Invasion Unlimited version you have.
    If there had been an upgrade closer to the master tape it would have created a buzz all over the net but as far as I know Purple Chick is as good as any. Maybe worth downloading and giving us your opinion on both?

  7. the Remasters Workshop version is called Release from Limitations sounds just as good as Pc's I think

  8. thanks in advance let me check

  9. Hi friend,
    first: thanks for the amazing blog!
    Well, I found these wonderful gem on SoulSeek:

    The Beatles Lost Album - 2017 -
    320 kbps - 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, cover art, etc.).
    The collection is incredibly complete of unreleased Beatles tracks (only few songs were left out: some covers/blues/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! Enjoy :)

    So I put the album in We Transfer, you just click the link to download it:

    (the link is available for 7 days)

    Cheers and congratulations for the wonderfull blog :)
    Happy Xmas!
