Comments: The companion piece to Vols 1 & 2 of the "Bare It All" series combines the rest of the outtakes
collated by John Barrett and the material used for Abbey Roads special event, "The Abbey Road Video show
a mixed media event showcasing 2 hours of the studios most famous entrants topped off with a tour around the hallowed building.
Vol. 3 is a mixture of tapes, tracks 1-8 are tape "X12" 1965 era recordings and the rest a Barrett self compilation made for his own amusement.
The first segments features multiple takes of "That Means A Lot", "Norwegian Wood", "Im Looking Through You" and "12 Bar Original" -
the first version of "Bare It All" was missing a partial rehearsal take of "12 Bar Original" at the end of take two.
This, the compiler promised, would have been taken care of by the time of the sets re-issue.
The pressed CD however does not feature this snippet, ensuring that its already incomplete.
If you own Black Dogs "Hodge Podge Vol. 1", you have it (albeit in dismal quality) already.

Regardless of this it all sounds great again.
Masterjedi has done a fantastic job with compiling this set and its one that deserves to be in your Beatles collection.

Helpfully there was a full rundown posted on to the internet of where these tracks came from which we copy here: John Barrett Tapes - Cross Reference List
A cross reference list of the John Barrett tapes identifying the bootlegs on which they can be found !

A rather basic double c.d. release with a few nice pictures and just the information seen on the scans above.
