Of the 50 tracks made available on ‘Anthology 3’, only 17 had previously appeared on bootlegs.

Among the highlights are George’s three acoustic demos (‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps’, ‘All Things Must Pass’ and ‘Something’) and the final song from the roof – ‘Get Back’.

There’s also a few Kinfaun demos and some Twickenham outtakes. The only slight disappointment was that the legendary 27-minute ‘Helter Skelter’ jam had been brutally cut down to just six minutes. Although it’s hard to see how they could have included a song so long, it’s a shame that we’ll never get to hear it.
