|What if? Instant Karma 2 LP 1971|
For this experiment we have taken some liberties with the actual release dates of the Beatles solo recordings but we "imagine" they were all composed in the period between 'Let It Be' and the end of 1971. With this release the Beatles confirmed their greatness and "Instant Karma' dominates both the album and singles charts from it's release in December 1971 up through mid 1974. The band's decision to launch a massive world tour to support it in 1972 and 1973 maintained interest and continued to build momentum for it and as single after single climbed the charts for the next 2 years the album became the best selling record ever released. So many hits were contained on this record that the music press and public began to call this the 'Green Album' in reference to the previous two Beatles greatest hits 2 LP collections the Red 1962-1966 and Blue 1967-1970 albums.

By mid 1974 the band could no longer continue to work together as the internal tensions among them so obvious during the ''Let It Be' film, that had been kept at bay by the global success and influence of 'Instant Karma' and a new life on the road during the tour, had returned to the surface. Still owing Apple one more record they all agreed to return to the studio to create their final album "All Things Must Pass' with the understanding that this was truly their final effort together.
Look for that album in the next installment of the PsYcHeDeLiC Detached Garage 2.0.6 but for now enjoy 'Instant Karma'.
