I'm trying to complete my collection of Beatle Acetates recordings (not the originals just mp3 copies) but cannot get "Something" by George Harrison. Anyone out there able to help at all.
I'm unsure what the position is with regard to passing these particular Mp3 files around but as the recordings were given out free I'm hoping the usual copyright issues don't apply as I don't want to cause anyone any problems or recriminations.
by the originators doesn't mean that there's no copyright. A copyright holder is perfectly at liberty to distribute free copies of a recording, but that doesn't place it in the public domain as far as copyright is concerned.
Thanks for that Brynit. Nice to see George again in happier times. I do have all the Beatles tracks and what I am actually looking for was a copy of "Something" from one one these little flimsy acetate disks that magazines and fan clubs used to issue for free. I sometimes wonder what an old greyhead like me is doing looking for things like this but all collectors of anything I suppose do like getting the final piece of the jigsaw so to speak.
Jack Know what you mean now but when I was a lad I wouldn't have known what that meant. I must have lived a sheltered life despite being brought up in Glasgow. Crosstrainer Until recently I didn't know that this track existed. A friend tells me he has seen it as an added track on a Russian version of a Beatles album but there is a chance he is winding me up.
Hi Fruit Bat, Crosstrainer and Jack That is the song but the professional version. Anyway thanks everyone who showed an interest. My son who clearly must have more computer skills of the dodgy kind than I have produced the track for me in MP3 format earlier this evening.
It has George singing with what sounds like an accoustic guitar and there is a little musical backing from I suppose the other Beatles. It sounds much like an unplugged version. Clearly it has had some finishing as the sound is not bad considering it originally came from an acetate but it has retained some of the original tinny sound. Guess who's a happy bunny tonight.
