Hello All, Let us stay with those Beatles. Next up is this goodie called L.S. Bumble Bee. This is a crazy mix of songs starting off with L.S. Bumble Bee released on a 45 by Peter Cook & Dudley Moore. Then it's just a mix all over the place from the studio and one from The Ed Sullivan Show. A fun listen for sure!!
Contraband’s companion piece to Have You Heard The Word, with most of the tracks originating from the Let It Be soundtrack. This marked the debut of a Beatles Decca audition track on any medium, illegal or not. One theory put forward about how this song might have been obtained is that it came from a tape of eight of the Decca audition songs the Beatles had given to Astrid Kirchherr around 11 April of 1962 upon their return to Hamburg, the day after Stuart Sutcliff’s passing. Kirchherr gave the tape to a friend of hers a year later.

Ringo Starr - John Lennon - George Harrison
I'm the greatest 4 vers.
Sunset Sound Recorders, Los Angeles, 13 March 1973 Lennon was invited by Ringo Starr to go to Sunset Sound Recorders in Los Angeles to help contribute to Ringo, his third studio album. Starr had sent requests to each of the former Beatles for new material, and Lennon revived I'm The Greatest. He rewrote several of the lines to make them relevant to Starr, and helped arranged the recording. George Harrison was also in Los Angeles, and had arranged a meeting with Lennon to discuss the 1962-1966 and 1967-1970 Beatles compilations. Lennon invited him into the studio, making perhaps the closest there ever came to a Beatles reunion. From behind the piano Lennon led a version with Starr on drums, Harrison on electric guitar and Voormann on bass. They recorded 12 takes, four of which were complete, with Lennon singing guide vocals. One of these studio outtakes was released in slightly edited form in the John Lennon Anthology collection.
