Sir Paul McCartney's plan to put out an unheard Beatles' track has been dealt a setback - his former bandmate George Harrison's widow Olivia is reportedly undecided about agreeing to its release.
MCCartney announced earlier this week (17Nov08) he wanted fans to finally hear the Fab Four's 1967 experimental tune Carnival of Light.
The singer allegedly attempted to include the 14-minute song on previous Beatles Anthology albums but was blocked by Harrison - who disliked the composition because he felt it was too avant-garde.
Now MCCartney is reportedly set to face opposition from the late guitarist's wife, who - along with John Lennon's widow Yoko Ono - must give permission for the song to be released under the Beatles' name.
A source tells Britain's Daily Express newspaper, "Olivia is well aware George didn't like Carnival of Light. It's inevitably going to be difficult for her to give the go-ahead."

Maybe Cynthia is continuing to look out for George, knowing how he disapproved of the type of music Paul is seeking. I will never turn my back on them, they all did things like we did. They were unique and their music will forever go down in history of greatness and originality. This is something Paul, Ringo, and the two widows must agree on.

I have heard "Carnival of Light" and it's just not worth arguing over. What is interesting and worth releasing is "Now and then" just google it / youtube it. There are 3 versions. I didn't like it at first then it came back and haunted me. Love it now. Graham
