George Harrison says there's "nothing I can remember" about such an EP, but he did confirm
that an early version of "Across the Universe" did exist and has, in fact, seen the light of day. "I

that one out on a World Wildlife Fund Charity album (in 1969). And it also later went on the
'Anthology (2)' album," he said.
