The Beatles’ "Revolution 1 (Take 20)" Leaks


Beatles fans still patiently waiting for Paul McCartney to release the band’s 1967 sound collage "Carnival of Light" were surprised by an even better gift this weekend as a 10-minute version of The White Album’s "Revolution 1" leaked onto the internet, giving fans a never-before-heard listen of what the White Album sessions must have been like.

The track makes it clear why seemingly unrelated "Revolution 1" and the maniacal "Revolution 9" sound collage share the same name: In "Revolution 1 (Take 20)" John Lennon steers an extended, more experimental version of "1" to its breaking point, using it as a conduit before launching into the avant-garde "9."
