Apple Jam INDIA, INDIA was written by John Lennon and inspired by his
 memories of the period the Beatles spent studying   
 Transcendental Meditation in Rishikesh, India in 1968.
 A finished version of this song has never officially been
 released by the Beatles or John Lennon.
 Apple Jam's rendition of 
INDIA, INDIA became available 5-8-18
 as a digital single on iTunes, Amazon, CD Baby, and Spotify. 

 INDIA, INDIA will also be included on Apple Jam’s next record,
 a collection of White Album era songs, composed but never
 released by the Beatles.
 The record release will coincide with the 50th anniversary of the White Album, November 22, 2018. This track follows the releases of 
GOODBYE (3/20/18) CIRCLES (2/12/2018), SUICIDE (1/1/2018), THE RISHI KESH SONG (11/22/2017).  

Far beyond a tribute band, internationally acclaimed Apple Jam accurately reproduces music from the Beatles full repertoire, including solo years, and never released songs.

The Sessions - a live re-staging of the Beatles at Abbey Road Studios - was showcased at the ECHO arena at the end of last month in a one-off charity gig.

Since then, the 45-strong cast has performed to a sold-out Royal Albert Hall and in Belfast, Dublin and Brighton.

2016 Sessions 1 On March 30th Liverpool saw the pre-premiere of
 The ABBEY ROAD Sessions in the Echo Arena in Liverpool. 
 Brought to stage by the same man who brought
 Elvis Presley back 'alive' a couple of years ago,
 he now, with the help of the original Beatles' sound engineer
 Geoff Emerick, shows us how the Beatles worked
 in Studio 2 of the famous London recording studios.

 For more (BI witness) details about the show,
