About

From Wikipedia:

In 1981, in-house engineer John Barrett was given the task of cataloguing the complete collection of tapes from the band’s seven-year career with EMI. This led to two projects: a public audio-visual presentation at Abbey Road Studios called The Beatles Live at Abbey Road (which opened on 18 July 1983) and a planned outtakes album which was to be called Sessions. In addition to some of the songs included on the previously leaked compilation tape, Sessions added “Not Guilty“, “What’s the New Mary Jane“, “How Do You Do It?“, “Bésame Mucho”, “Mailman, Bring Me No More Blues“, “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” (demo), and early takes of “Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da” and “I’m Looking Through You“. Shortly before the album’s scheduled 1985 release, it was vetoed by the surviving members of the band; but both audience recordings of the Abbey Road presentation and the leaked promos of Sessions became available to bootleggers. These songs appeared on bootleg series such as Ultra-Rare Trax and Unsurpassed Masters, along with other material presumably copied while preparing these projects. Most of the aforementioned tracks were officially released on the Anthology albums in 1995 and 1996.
