    I Want To Hold Your Hand Take 9? Isnt this new to collectors?

  3. kirkenshrir says:

    @Mark, that would depend if it's a whole track or just the false start/ studio chatter we already have… It looks as though they've just cherry-picked whatever they liked out of the Purple Chick set (or equivalent) and made a cd/lp out of it. I guess we'll have to wait and see…

    Lots of slates, false starts, edit pieces and breakdowns… But still great stuff if you're not already a collector 🙂

    I hope in 2015 they release the bootleg recordings for Help! and Rubber Soul…

  6. J. D. says:

    Wouldn't laws against selling stolen property apply to these releases?

  7. Adam Smith says:

    There was no theft of any physical property from EMI. Theft of electricity has its own special label in English law: 'abstraction'. In the present case, only copyright law applies, not the criminal law relating to theft.

  8. Judemac says:

    I got this one yesterday, fine collection but if you got the original bootlegs, or not a hardcore collector, I'd pass on it.

  9. Nicola Battista says:

    I don't think these involve "stolen property". And anyway, if there was a "theft", it happened in the 1980s and it is now well outside of time limits for any action, I assume?
