    Well I can't find it here. Even through an Oslo VPN. Was it removed already?

    There are some mix-ups in the process. The "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" video on "Anthology 3" of (of course) the "Love" version of the song. On "Love", there is an audio only version of the same track, but several of the "Love" songs are replaced with the video versions of the standard (video) tracks. Also on "Anthology 2" several of the album's alternative versions are replaced by the video versions.

    There are similar issues on other albums as well, particularly with the video versions replacing the album track. Like we know, the audio on the videos is not in every case the same as on the album/single.

    I doubt "civilians" (the general public) is going to be too bothered by this, though. 🙂

    I doubt this is an official channel. The official one is at and this one is elsewhere. Why it wasn't taken down yet is beyond me…

    I beleive Youtube is about to launch 'YouTube Music', which will be another music streaming service, with a membership that will cost you £9.00 per month. So this may be in preparation for this? In that case 'free access' may be very temporal …

    CCRider: This is the official channel, here is the link I posted:
    As you can see, the channel is the same one you mention in your comment.
    Gabor Peterdi: Go to the official Beatles YouTube channel, scroll down the page to "Albums".
    Geert De Wilde: Maybe you are on to something here..

    @ Geert Obviously temporal, but, then again, Beatles music has always been Heavenly, so you never know! 😉

    Does this have anything to do with the way the charts are calculated?
    The UK Chart is starting to add Video plays to record, CD, MP3 sales and streams.

  8. Geert says:

    @ Teddy Salad Well, I used the word 'temporal' in its original (though rare) sense of "Lasting or existing only for a time; passing, temporary" (OED).
    No I didn't 🙂 As soon as I hit enter I realised my mistake … but then it was too late. Anyway, you got the gist 😉

    having the songs available on youtube it's like an official digital release, which allow the system to block automatically other channels with the same beatles songs and of course, gain money through the video visits and clicks on the ads. it's just a business move, the money is on youtube now.

    Seriousy wonder why they don't set up a "spotify" like service for songs from Beatles, Beatles solo and Apple. Include current tracks plus legacy tracks such as old CD versions and the LP verions. Include audio of outtakes, TV and radio performances. Include video!
