In late May 1968 (the excact date not known) the Beatles came together at 'Kinfauns', George Harrisons home in Esher. One by one, first John, then Paul, they recorded 23 of their newest compositions by double-tracking themselves on George's Reel-to-Reel-tape-machine. These songs, most of whom where written during the Beatles' two-month-stay on a meditation-course in Rishikesh, India, February - April 1968, were subsequently recorded for the 'White Album'. But not all of them made it onto vinyl and thus remain unreleased (at least as Beatles-versions).Same disk from two different bootleggers.

Booklet Notes: As the title suggests, there is some digital sleight of hand at work here. "Men and Horses, Hoops and Garters" a collection of Beatles tracks that were created by combining various versions or elements of certain performances into new and unique interpretations of the songs. Many times this resulted in a "before and after" image, much like what was done with "Yes It Is" on "Anthology 2" (which was the inspiration for this effort), in other cases completely new mixes have been created. All of these tracks are fully composed of Beatles performances.Other than some slight tempo adjustment, nothing has been added to any of these performances.(IMHO) This is an absolutely flawless Beatles bootleg 01.

The most expected release since the Black Album. After being asked by the remaining Beatles to make experimental remixes from their master tapes, Sir George Master Five and the former drummer Pete Best spent 7 entire days planning this record, that for the first time in the fab-four history expresses HATE for the war, and for everyone that supports this stupid act. The results are fantastic. Sound textures that have never been heard before, noise, and unique breakbeats. This is an album to despise.
