Several other versions of Revolution were also recorded.
"Revolution 1" was the original version of Revolution; Lennon had intended it to be a single, however, the other band members thought it too slow. For more information about Revolution 1, please see this page.
Revolution 1 (Take 20)Edit
Revolution 1 (Take 20) is a bootlegged copy that circulates the internet. It's an extended version of Revolution 1, featuring a longer coda.
Revolution 9 Alternate MixEdit
Revolution 9 Alternate Mix is a bootlegged copy of Revolution 9. Unlike the original Rev. 9, Revolution 9 Alternate Mix, is shorter and is 8:03 long. This is because the end football chants and Yoko saying "If you become naked" is replaced by an echoey "Take this brother, may it serve you well". In this song, you can hear about halfway through, Paul saying "Revolution take 20" which is from the beginning of "Revolution 1 (Take 20).
Revolution (LOVE Version)Edit
The LOVE version is pretty much the same as the single version, except that it comes after "Come Together/Dear Prudence", excludes the solo/third verse and segués into Back in the U.S.S.R. The version on the DVD is longer than the version included on the soundtrack.
