WRMB 378: THE BEATLES ‘DR. ROBERT…?’

More of a pirate recording than a bootleg. The relatively good audio quality and the then rarely heard tracks quickly made this into an LP people actually listened to more than a couple of times. The colored vinyl version used to bring relatively high prices in the last decade. Cover art lifted directly from the 1975 book The Beatles An Illustrated Record.

A1   I’m Only Sleeping         [3:00, true stereo mix from UK Revolver LP, compared to simulated stereo on Yesterday And Today]
A2   What’s The New Mary-Jane?         [3:12, probably RS2, better sounding than on TMoQ & CBM releases]
A3   The Inner Light         [2:36, RM4, a pirate of the B-side of the official 45]
A4   And Your Bird Can Sing         [2:00, true stereo mix from UK Revolver LP]
A5   Peace Of Mind         [3:14, not the Beatles but a quality upgrade]
A6   You Know My Name (Look Up The Number)         [4:15, edit of RM4 (fake stereo), a pirate of the B-side of the official 45]
B1   Doctor Robert         [2:13, true stereo mix from UK Revolver LP]
B2   Blue Jay Way         [3:51, mono mix]
B3   The L.S. Bumble Bee       [2:36, Peter Cook & Dudley Moore 1967 45]
B4   Penny Lane         [2:59, US mono mix RM11 for promo 45 w. trumpet ending]
B5   I’m Down         2:33, mono version from UK 45]
B6   Have You Heard The Word?    [4:31, The Fut 1969 45]
