Maybe it was just a ruse though to protect Geoff? He could just have dubbed it off onto a reel and sent it anonymously to EMI.

I remember when "Besame Mucho" surfaced, I was talking to this Danish guy who used to work in the music book section of my favourite book store in Oslo. He was a Beatles fan, so he always ordered new Beatles related books which is why I always stopped by whenever I was in Oslo. Obviously he was used to chat with fellow Beatles fans who came to the store, and he told me that there was this one guy, a fellow Norwegian Beatles collector, who had bragged about having that whole session tape, with all the songs on it.

I don't believe he could have had it. Emerick would have guarded it with his life. It was his dirty little secret!
