Hi all. I was wondering if anyone has discussed using the recently utilized tech that helped isolate John Lennon’s voice for the new Beatles song to isolate Ian’s voice for Ceremony. I really like what the band came up with but it would be cool to know what words Ian was trying out in the demo.

Sadly the technology only really works effectively on stuff that has been well recorded as separate tracks in the first place. The Ceremony rehearsal tape by all accounts was recorded on a Boombox in the corner

But it's still possible to isolate the vocals - they just aren't very clear. The words the band deciphered correctly obviously stand out as they are hard programmed in our heads...the rest...well you decide

What's clear is that they got a LOT of the lyrics wrong, as it doesn't sound anything like what Ian was singing

I no longer have Debbie's book, and don't remember the lyrics to "Ceremony" being in it. But I do remember the "Avenues all lined with trees" line cropping up a couple of times in Ian's notes that were included.

Though obviously only a rehearsal version (recorded the afternoon before their final gig) this transcription seems mostly accurate:
