The Beatles song you’ve never heard.

The lads from Liverpool recorded a fourteen-minute “experimental” song called “Carnival of Light.”

Carnival of Light” is an unreleased experimental piece by The Beatles. It was recorded on January 5, 1967, after the vocal overdubbing sessions for “Penny Lane“. The track was created for The Million Volt Light and Sound Rave, an event held at the Roundhouse Theatre on January 28 and February 4, 1967. Some reports indicate that it is around fourteen minutes long.[1] and Paul McCartney has said it was around fifteen minutes. In The Complete Beatles Chronicle it’s listed as lasting 13 minutes and 48 seconds.

Paul wanted to put it on one of the Beatles Anthology disks, but George nixed it. I’m sure it’s a rambling mess much like “Revolution Number 9” from the White Album, but I’d still like to hear it.
