The Beatles Never Broke Up...What?
What would you do if you woke up one morning to a message in your email stating that one of your favorite, most iconic bands in the world had recorded a new album...even after two of the band members are already dead???
Well according to James Richards, on Sept. 9th, 2009 he received a tape recording of a new Beatles album. James Richard provides a pretty in depth back story to his discovery of the tape. The story goes something like this...
James was letting his dog go pee in the middle of the desert in Livermore, California. His dog then spotted a rabbit and chased after it. James runs after his canine companion only to trip on a rabbit hole and knock himself unconscious.
Here is where it gets weird...
A man by the name of Jonas bandages him up and takes him into his home... in an alternate universe. In this alternate universe the Beatles never broke up. Jonas allowed James to listen to the newest album of the Beatles titled Everyday Chemistry. Jonas told James that he can't take the tape back with him to his universe but he did anyway.
I do not really think that all of this happened, especially given that this happened on Sept. 9th, 2009. (9/9/9) The number 9 has been a significant number for the Beatles and the fact that this event supposedly happened on this date is supposed to give the story more credit.
Read the story for yourself here.
James offers the tape for free download off of his website.
Upon listening to the tape, I can hear snippets of other Beatles songs mastered together in a pretty cool new way. As far as I am concerned, If you think this story is bogus at least you can come away with the experience with a pretty solid Beatles Mixtape with some cool remixed, mash-up, and remastered tracks.
Take a listen and let us know what you think...
