|Comments:||This double c.d. collects together outtakes for The White Album and attempts to produce a live outing for the same.
Much of the legendary Peter Sellers tape makes up the outtakes, which are filled out with various bits and pieces.
Copy Cat Chronicle is just that and very much so imitates the HMC "TMOQ Gazette" style.
|1||Back In The U.S.S.R.||From the Peter Sellers Tape (Ambient Stereo)
Take 6 RM1
Jet noise at the end is longer without any segue into Dear Prudence
|2||Dear Prudence||Alternate Stereo Mix
Some strange tape hiss at the start
This is quite different with extended backing vocals
Strange fade at end, tape rewind, then John says, "Swinging, Swinging"

At end John says, "by courtesy of the committee council"
|4||Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da||From the Peter Sellers Tape (Ambient Stereo)
Take 23 RM21
Odd sounds and extra piano burst before start, false start maybe
Different mix of the released mono version with hand claps heard on the intro.
Slightly longer ending: At end, after the "Thank you", and extra pause, then "damn sure".

George, "Is this mike on ?"
Not a proper mix at all, just some double tracking causing phasing
