The Beatles Disco Album

If they had stayed together for another few years, do you think the Beatles would have made a disco album? What would it have sounded like? Where would they have gone?

And also, other great albums that were never made, movements that were never started, or collabs that never happened.

Also, someone do the artwork.

GO.

Jimi Hendrix & Miles Davis. The two were working together before Jimi’s death. Huge potential for real greatness (and disappointment)

That’s a good point. The 27 Club benefits greatly from all the shit records they never got to make.

eg Jim Morrison’s Great American Songbook Vegas residency.

although wings did some amazing disco eg goodnight tonight and silly love songs I reckon a beatles number might have been closer to supermax. I can just hear the lovemachine number in Ringo’s voice. tbh though I think they would’ve veered closer to prog or maybe supertramp territory

Lennon might well have gone down the new wave path in 81, maybe knocking something out with Ferry, Byrne or Bowie. He was reconnecting with NY scene in 80 after the years of hibernation.

Definitely. And any of these things that potentially could’ve been great also, inevitability, have the potential to be greatly disappointing in reality.

Fun to imagine nonetheless

Brian Wilson & Patrick Cowley. Only 23 copies made via private press. Disco holy grail. Mad psychedelic synth action.

Lennon was involved in Yoko’s disco not disco bit “Walking on Thin Ice” which is quite good.
