Mythical Beatles Track Does Exist

Sir PAUL MCCARTNEY has confirmed a 14-minute long BEATLES track many thought was a myth does exist -- and says he wants the public to hear it, reports THE BBC. He told BBC RADIO 4's Front Row the track -- called "Carnival of Light" -- was not released because the other BEATLES thought it was too "adventurous."
The improvised track was recorded in 1967 for an electronic music festival.
Sir PAUL said RINGO STARR and JOHN LENNON'S and GEORGE HARRISON's estates would have to agree to a release.
He said he had been asked to create the piece for an electronic music festival, and asked the other band members to be "indulgent" for 10 minutes at LONDON's ABBEY ROAD STUDIOS before giving them vague directions.
The track was played just once, at the festival, and is said to include distorted guitar, organ sounds, gargling and band members shouting phrases such as "Barcelona!" and "Are you all right?"
The full interview will be broadcast on BBC RADIO 4's Front Row on THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 20th at 1915 GMT.
