Mccartney Talks Down Lost Beatles Track

SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY has played down speculation unheard BEATLES track CARNIVAL OF LIGHT is a lost classic - insisting some fans won't like it.
The Hey Jude hitmaker announced last month (Nov08) that he plans to release the song - a 14-minute experimental number recorded in 1967 that was never officially released.
It has gained mythical status among avid Beatles fans - but MCCartney has now spoken out, urging fans not to expect the track to sound as classic as songs such as Strawberry Fields Forever.
He says, "People are thinking there's another Strawberry Fields somewhere... this is more plinky-plonky. I mean, I like it, but it's not to everyone's taste."
