THE BEATLES ANTHOLOGY: 3 consists of demos and outtakes from THE WHITE ALBUM, LET IT BE and ABBEY ROAD. The Beatles: John Lennon (vocals, acoustic & electric guitars, piano, bass, percussion); Paul McCartney (vocals, acoustic & electric guitars, piano, organ, bass, drums, percussion); George Harrison (vocals, acoustic & electric guitars, percussion); Ringo Starr (vocals, drums, percussion). Producers: George Martin, The Beatles. Compilation producer: George Martin. Recorded between May 1968 and January 1970. Includes liner notes by Derek Taylor. If ANTHOLOGY: 2 was a study of how a Beatles song came together, ANTHOLOGY: 3 is a study of how the Beatles themselves came apart. McCartney was now an unabashed pop balladeer, Lennon a sneering pop humorist and experimenter, and Harrison a separate songwriting force aching to be unleashed. But the scattered demos, rehearsals and outtakes that make up ANTHOLOGY: 3 are brilliant bits and pieces anyway. Lennon's early run-through of "Happiness Is A Warm Gun" is literally bits and pieces--three melodic ideas crammed together, not yet including the part that would become the song's chorus. There are acoustic demos of two McCartney songs; the gorgeous "Junk," which eventually showed up on his first solo album, and "The Long And Winding Road"--the same performance that appeared on LET IT BE, but without the strings that were added against his will. The real discoveries are Harrison's solo demos, including electric-guitar-and-vocal performances of "Something" and "All Things Must Pass." They nearly ache with beauty, and Harrison sings them as if discovering his voice for the first time. The finished versions couldn't possibly stand up to these demos, which are among the highlights of the entire ANTHOLOGY series.
