Taken from the Beatles infamous White Album sessions, Revolution 1 (take 20), is the first significant unheard material from the band in decades! Absolute genius, and pretty much the wholly grail for any Beatles fan!
‘Take 20′ of the song is notable, as it appears to bridge the gap between The Beatles’ ‘Revolution 1’ and ‘Revolution 9’.
The main difference in the ‘new’ version of ‘Revolution 1’ and the version of the same song that appeared on ‘The Beatles’ (commonly known as ‘The White Album’) is the track’s length. The unreleased version is a full seven minutes longer than its released counterpart.
‘Take 20’ of the song begins with the band talking in the studio, where John Lennon is heard saying “Take your knickers off and let’s go” in a high-pitched voice.
Towards the ten-minute mark, the song breaks down into a barrage of speech and from John Lennon and Yoko Ono.
