-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- RM1 Take 2 4 Nov 1965 SS.ETC.10.02.RM1 The Beatles Take 2 was mixed into mono (RM1) on 30 Nov 1965. This version is in much superior quality than Take 2 w/o mixing. Three different versions appeared on bootlegs.

+ The first lasts more than six minutes. + The second fades out around the 3:50 mark. + The third one was found in John Barrett's private collection (not to be confused with the Barrett Mix !). It is not clear for now if this version is another mono mix or the same RM1 but it is presented by Vigotone as a 1965 mono mix and according to Lewisohn, 12-Bar Original was mixed into mono on 30 Nov 1965 between 4.45 PM and 5.00 PM ! This means it was mixed in 15 minutes ! Therefore, it's dubious they had the time to mix it twice, so, for now, this "Barrett" version is considered as RM1. The sound quality, however, is superior to the other versions of RM1.

Complete version of '12 Bar Original'. RM1, 30 nov 1965

----- The "unidentified versions" of "12-Bar Original" that appear on "Ultra Rare Trax Vol.6", and "Challenger One" and "Recording Sessions Vol. 1" (as well as on several other unlisted bootlegs) are all in fact the same as the one on "Acetates", except they fade out around the 3:50 mark. Note, however, that the source of this recording on "Unsurpassed Masters Vol. 2" is different from the one on "Acetates". Perhaps it's the same source before it was declicked and denoised. There are some minor noises and audio anomalies in the "UM2" version that distinguish it from the other YD issue.

RM1 (30 Jan 1967) is a very rough mix intended for demo acetate.

The famous 'Oh Shit' version (different than on Anthology 2 because here it is complete). You can hear the counting clearly.Paul is laughing while singing and forget his lyrics.
