For Beatlemanics Only

No, I'm not going to prattle on about The Beatles' remasters. I have two so far and of course, they're exquisite, both in sound and performance. Any serious rock fan—does anyone call it "rock" anymore?—is hereby commanded to buy them all.

Instead I wish to share with you a revelation, as it were, about the much-maligned "Revolution 9." Seems our crack research department has recently unearthed the 1963 version, a McCartney classic that has languished in the vaults till now. Shake yer mop-tops, kids!

(For the record, I'm one of six people in the world who like "Revolution 9" as it appears on the White Album.)
