Was Revolution #9 actually a cover??

Postby Jim of Seattle » Wed Nov 13, 2013 11:02 am

Recent evidence has come to light that the Beatles' famous sound collage "Revolution #9" was actually a cover of a previously unknown work from the 1930's. Check it out.
Is there any reason you haven't bought my album yet? "We Are All Famous", on iTunes, CD Baby, and Green Monkey Records. Also available in unlimited edition "free" version:
Yes! I want to hear Jim's album without paying for it!

You had me going for a while even though I kept thinking to myself this may the worst NPR report ever produced. (the copy needs some serious editing.) :)

I'm glad you posted that, Frankie. I saw this thread and figured it's just some random conspiracy theory and never bothered clicking the link. So you jogged my curiosity, so clicked it. I'm glad I did. Good job Jim. :)

Thanks, I wondered if anyone would actually click on the link. What I hoped I wouldn't have to do was post "Hey, no one clicked on this. It's not real."

I wasn't really trying to fool anyone outright, but I hoped some people would wonder for a moment, and then would be in on it.

FBF< I know it's a terrible NPR story. I originally wanted to do a whole video with talking heads and stuff. I had big plans for this piece. The hope is to make a whole album of piano pieces with compromised mono audio quality. I love that old sound. I'm almost done with a piece which plays Coleman Hawkins' Body and Soul in reverse which will be on the same album, if I ever finish enough of it.

Anyway, this Revolution #9 piece was my project for the last summer.

Yeah, but it was still clever. A little judicious editing and you have a nice little parody piece. And of course, the piano playing was nice.
