The compilers of the bootleg Alpha Omega came close to achieving that, by adding Lennon's " Imagine ", Harrison's " Bangla Desh " and McCartney's " Maybe I'm Amazed ", along with other songs by the three former bandmates, to the Beatles hits that made up the bulk of the compilation.
Alpha Omega appears to be the first Maybe Im Amazed - The Beatles - Alpha Omega 1B release of any sort to include solo material from different ex-Beatles. But when Apple responded to Alpha Omega with the compilations — and —it did not follow the bootleggers' example.
