Last friday we reported here on the WGO Beatles news blog about "15 lost Beatles songs". Today the original press release has hit the main-stream media, and we know a little more about the release.
No release date has been set for the recordings. According to Billboard Magazine today, Jeffrey Collins, holder of the material, says, "Through legal channels, we will be making these albums available for release," says Collins. "The Beatles know these tapes exist and their lawyers know these tapes exist. It's a matter of certain legalities."
However, a spokesperson from Apple Corps. says, "We don't have a comment as such but not surprisingly are looking into the claim."
Billboard also repeats info from Steve Marinucci of Abbeyrd's Beatles Page, who has reported that of the four tracks on the Fuego site, only "A Taste of Honey" is unheard, and the "Lovesick Blues" cover isn't even by the Beatles at all. As for the sound quality, Marinucci says they are no better than earlier "Star Club" releases, which are decidedly lo-fi.
So, stay tuned, we'll have more information about these controversial recordings as it becomes available.
