Update Song link Here.*****
A previously unreleased version of The Beatles' 'Revolution 1' has found its way online.
The recording, which is supposedly 'Take 20' of the song, is available to listen to via a YouTube link below.
'Take 20' of the song is notable, as it appears to bridge the gap between The Beatles' 'Revolution 1' and 'Revolution 9'.
The main difference in the 'new' version of 'Revolution 1' and the version of the same song that appeared on 'The Beatles' (commonly known as 'The White Album') is the track's length. The unreleased version is a full seven minutes longer than its released counterpart.
Lyrically and structure-wise, the song doesn't differ wildly from the released version, although the entire second half of the unreleased version is made up of tape loops, vocal effects and studio trickery - some of which appears to have been sampled by The Beatles for use on their sample-heavy 'Revolution 9' track, which also appears on 'The White Album'.
'Take 20' of the song begins with the band talking in the studio, where John Lennon is heard saying "Take your knickers off and let's go" in a high-pitched voice.
The band then begin playing the song.
Although 'Revolution 1 (Take 20)' soon mutates into five minutes of assorted backwards singing and screaming from the band, the drums, guitars and George Harrison's vocal of "Om-shooby-do-wop" still remain throughout.
Towards the ten-minute mark, the song breaks down into a barrage of speech and from John Lennon and Yoko Ono.
Blogs across the internet are hosting the song, with some fans hailing it as 'the holy grail' of unreleased material.
However, it is yet to be officially confirmed as being authentic.

NEW YORK - Dewey Martin, the Canadian-born drummer for '60s rock band Buffalo Springfield, has died.
Rolling Stone reports that Martin died Jan. 31 of unknown causes in Van Nuys, Calif. He was 68.
According to the Rolling Stone report, Martin not only sang backup on the Buffalo Springfield hit "For What It's Worth," he also provided the LSD to Stephen Stills that inspired him to write the song.
After the band fell apart in 1968, Martin tried to carry on by forming the New Buffalo Springfield, which led to legal battles.
He later became a car mechanic.
Martin, who grew up in the Ottawa area, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with the rest of Buffalo Springfield in 1997.
He was born Walter Milton Dwayne Midkiff and began playing drums at age 13, according to the online music encyclopedia Allmusic.com.
After moving to the U.S. he worked as a touring drummer with performers including Roy Orbison, the Everly Brothers and Patsy Cline.

***The Cramps 1979***
Cramps Frontman Lux Interior Dies
The Cramps formed in 1976 and were part of the now legendary downtown New York punk scene. Their lineup shifted over the years but always included Lux and his wife, Poison Ivy. The band's rockabilly-infused punk has been credited as an influence by bands like the White Stripes, Pearl Jam and the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion.
Interior, whose real name was Erick Lee Purkhiser, was born Oct. 21, 1948, in Stow, Ohio. He met Ivy in 1972 and started the band shortly thereafter.
The Cramps released 14 albums over the course of their career. Their latest, 2004's "How To Make a Monster," sold 11,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Their best-selling album, 1984's "Bad Music for Bad People," has sold 95,000 copies.
