500 Tapes

Francis Cermak sent me a link to this story:
It is a priceless insight into the creative processes of the most celebrated pop group of all time — more than 500 tapes of the Beatles arguing, singing snatches of old tunes and jamming to unreleased tracks.

But for 35 years only tantalising fragments of the missing tapes had emerged, until they turned up as evidence in an English court after a long investigation into their whereabouts. Now Beatles fans are hoping for the release of a treasure trove of material they’ve never heard before.

I hadn't heard anything about this. Of course these will get released in nine different compilations and "rarities" albums. I'd like to hear them.
