The Beatles considered recording another album after Abbey Road.
John Lennon, Paul McCartney and George Harrison made the revelation during a meeting at their Apple headquarters in London on September 8th, 1969. It was recorded for the benefit of Ringo Starr, who was at the doctor undergoing tests for a gastric issue.
John suggested that he, Paul and George each bring in four songs and Ringo two for consideration. And it would end what he called "the Lennon-and-McCartney myth" with each of The Beatles creating songs individually.
And that's not the only revelation: McCartney said, "Until this album [referring to Abbey Road] George’s songs weren’t that good." To which Harrison snapped, "That’s a matter of taste. All down the line, people have liked my songs."
Beatles historian and biographer Mark Lewisohn says the tape will change people's opinions on why, what and when The Beatles broke up. He features it in his one-man show, Hornsey Road, which focuses on the final years of The Beatles.
