The White Album (Kinfauns) demos (1968)
In May 1968, The Beatles met at Kinfauns, the Esher home of George Harrison, to review and record demos of songs under consideration for their next album; twenty-seven songs, mostly acoustic, have become public from this session. Seven of the songs were released on Anthology 3, including "Junk", a song McCartney would later record for his first solo album. Of the twenty demo songs not officially released, fifteen would be recorded and released on the White Album, while "Not Guilty" and "What's the New Mary Jane" would be recorded for the album but not make the final line-up. The recordings included on the Anthology series are of a significantly higher fidelity (they came from George's original stereo reels of the demo sessions, and processed at Abbey Road Studios) than the bootlegged recordings (which probably came from John's mono copy of the tapes), raising the possibility that there are higher-quality versions of all twenty-seven songs. As a number of the songs included on the Anthology series were included in edited form, it has been suggested that the release of all the Esher demos as a legitimate future Beatles release is likely.
The other three songs would never be recorded in the studio by The Beatles:
"(I'm Just a) Child of Nature", later released by Lennon, with different lyrics, as "Jealous Guy".
"Circles", later released by Harrison on his "Gone Troppo" album.
"Sour Milk Sea", a Harrison song later recorded by Jackie Lomax as one of the earliest Apple Record singles.
