Yes, I have received more files and I intend to share them with you. Just to recap...
On July 3, I published a picture of a document that I received from someone. I do not know the identity of the individual and I was asked to not even reveal the account name. The document appeared to be a handwritten note addressed to someone named Alistair on the stationery of Apple employee Geoffrey Ellis.
The following day I received another document from the same individual. It contained a wheel with spokes similar to what Neil Aspinall and others described as Paul's outline for the film Magical Mystery Tour with additional related annotations. There are at least three versions of this wheel: One in the book "Many Years from Now" by Paul McCartney and Barry Miles; one in Rotten Apple 68; and the one sent to me. I can only authenticate the first one, but some readers have said that the handwriting on the one sent to me appears to match Paul's.
Two days later I published a third document from the same individual. This appeared to be a recording studio sheet of some kind indicating the best mix of "Let It Be." The date that was given to me with the document corresponded to the date that the mix for the single was selected (January 8, 1970) according to Mark Lewisohn's book, "The Complete Beatles Chronicle."
The next day I received two more documents and published them. One was a typewritten page with some scored out handwritten annotations and the other was strange drawing that seemed to be a map of some kind containing the words "suitcases" and "phoney." Again some readers suggested that the handwriting and various doodling appeared to have a striking similarity to things that they have seen written by Paul McCartney.
Now, one of the most common complaints about the whole Iamaphoney experience is that instead of getting the answers that he promised (often referred to as the "revelation") we are getting a second layer of clues, one generation removed from the alleged clues left by the Beatles themselves. Those complaints became magnified by the time suitcase #1 appeared. Many at that point observed what appeared to be a series of dreadful miscalculations from the Iamaphoney camp.
However, if these documents, and the ones that I received this weekend turn out to be legitimate, then we have a whole new ball game.
MikeyNL1038 received some documents as well and put them in his video paul is dead - nothing is real 151.
Mike's video contained a shot of a portion of an item that matches one of the pictures I received.
Mike confirmed that the file name of that particular picture was the same as mine. Based on that (and who knows what else) Mike came to the conclusion "then we know it's from the same person... even though it's a different account name." I disagree with that conclusion. The file could have originated from one place, but other people could have had access to it without changing its name. I am also mystified about how Mike determined that they came from different account names since I did not share my source with him and he did not share his source with me. Hopefully, he will clarify that at some point.
I have "put it 'round" that in my position of being the chronicler of all things Iamaphoney, I am willing to be played a little bit. So this weekend I received some more photos. But this time I believe the source was Iamaphoney. I believe that the images Mike received are from Iamaphoney too. However, I also believe, based on communications with those involved, that the images I received last week are from a DIFFERENT source.
I believe this because:
1) I have suspected ever since April 10 that there has been a breaking of ranks in the Iamaphoney organization. How else can you explain the "Nine Questions Interview" fiasco, the plane delayed in the West Indies excuse, and the subsequent Suitcase miscalculation?
2) Iamaphoney seemed genuinely concerned about the apparent betrayal of MikeNL. I think that's why he gave him some genuine masters for the Iamaphoney bootleg, along with the pictures he sent to him this week.
3) The communications I received from both individuals who supplied pictures seemed to indicate a rift of some kind resulting in contrary motives.
4) There is always a possibility that I'm am being played to the point that this supposed rift is part of some manipulation, but I doubt it.
So, I received four pictures that I believe came directly from Iamaphoney.
These bracelets appeared in Mike's video.
This one appeared to be in Mike's video, but you'll notice that the full photo has a date (1970) on it.
This frustrating portion of type did not appear in Mike's video, so it may be exclusive.
This is the most unusual item in the group. Does anyone have any idea what it is?
I cannot authenticate these pictures as genuine Beatles artifacts, but I cannot reject them either. They definitely at least meet my second layer criteria, that is, I believe they are genuine Iamaphoney items. If there is any doubt about that, I can show you proof of the photo album from which they came.
One more twist...
The other individual, who appears to have broken ranks with Iamaphoney, sent me something this weekend as well. The person who sent me this probably believes that Iamaphoney doesn't want you to see this, however I don't think that this hurts the credibility of the one to whom this blog is dedicated. So here it is.
This individual also sent me a color version of the same document that is unfortunately cropped at the top.
So, that is everything I have at the moment. I assume that both individuals sent them to me because they knew that I would put them all out there for analysis without being cryptic about it. They may be authentic documents. They may be forgeries that are part of some manipulative game. They may even be authentic documents that have been tampered with to fool us. At the very least, they are now in the light.
