Anything is a misplaced tape of a Beatles composition that never saw the light of day after recording. Still potentially hidden in the Abbey Road vault, the tape was solely recorded by Ringo Starr.

Story[]

According to entry Wednesday, February 22, 1967 on page 247 of Mark Lewisohn’s The Complete Beatles Chronicle, Ringo Starr recorded a 22 minute and 10 second long composition of drum beat, augmented with tambourines and congas. It is unclear what it was meant for and it was never mixed. Last heard by Mark himself.

The Beatles were especially keen to sit in on various mono and stereo mixes and edits of this song [A Day In The Life] which followed, and even found the energy to record another of their experimental numbers before the session ended. Ringo was to the fore on this one, titled, “Anything” and comprising 22 minutes and 10 seconds of drum beat, augmented by tambourine and congas. Quite what it was for is not clear. It was certainly never used, nor, apparently, was it even mixed,

Will it ever turn up? Not likely…
