– Mean Mr Mustard  (BBC Radio 1 disc jockey Kenny Everett was present during the mixing sessions for the Abbey Road album which took place on 14 August 1969. During a break in the session, Everett interviewed John. During that day’s mixing session, the songs Sun King, Mean Mr Mustard, Maxwell’s Silver Hammer, Polythene Pam, She Came In Through The Bathroom Window and You Never Give Me Your Money were being worked upon. Although it is unlikely that Everett was given copies on this day, he did recreate Sun King, Maxwell’s Silver Hammer and Mean Mister Mustard using his own four-track tapes for use as radio jingles. Everett’s recordings were used as an audio bed underneath the interview, leading many fans to presume it was The Beatles’ own work. The interview with Lennon was broadcast in two parts on Everett Is Here, on Saturdays 20 and 27 September from 10am until midday.)

From an owner review: “CBM bootleg with green/orange CBM A/B labels. I’ve also got a King Kong Reissue with very heavy and very crappy vinyl, red King Kong labels and Sides 1 and 2 switched. Includes Core collection tracks. VERY low quality at some points… The tracks on side 2 were taken from the ‘Renaissance Minstrels Vol.1‘-LP:” HOTWACKS also noted that the quality of side 2 was better on the TMOQ title.
