EDGE OF REALITY

1. Dark Moon (Elvis with Lennon and McCartney)
2. Penny Lane (McCartney)
3. You Don't Know Me (Elvis)
4. All You Need Is Love (Lennon and Elvis)
5. Guitar Man (Elvis)

Following the success of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart Club Band, The Beatles would continue to dive into psychedelics with Elvis sitting back. Years later Presley would call the recording sessions of Edge Of Reality the most fun he had with the group and wished things turned out differently for them.
 

ELVIS AND THE BEATLES
(1968)

Side A

1. Goin' Home (Elvis)
2. Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da (McCartney)
3. Western Union (Elvis with The Beatles)
4. While My Guitar Gently Weeps (Harrison)
5. Suppose (Elvis)
6. I'm So Tired (Lennon)

Side B
1. All I Needed Was The Rain (Elvis)
2. Don't Pass Me By (Starr)
3. Too Much Monkey Business (Elvis)
4. Why Don't We Do It in The Road? (McCartney)
5. Savoy Truffle (Harrison)
6. Mother Nature's Son (McCartney and Elvis)

ELVIS AND THE BEATLES or as it has been dubbed by the fans, The Red Album, would mark another success for the group. However behind the scenes the group was starting to fall apart, the recording sessions had seen a number of serious arguments and strained relations among the group. Elvis' wife Priscilla Presley had given birth to Lisa Marie during the making of the album so he wasn't around for certain sessions. But even when he was there the arguments were plenty leading to John Lennon storming out leaving him with only one song on the album, which led to George Harrison and Ringo Starr to having more songs on the album.
 

SEPARATE WAYS
(1968)

Side A

1. Hey Jude (Elvis)
2. Come Together (Lennon)
3. Oh! Darling (McCartney)
4. Bring It On Home to Me (Elvis)
5. Here Comes The Sun (Harrison)
6. Separate Ways (Elvis)*

Side B
1. Lady Madonna (Elvis and McCartney)
2. Ain't That a Shame (Lennon)
3. The Long and Winding Road (McCartney)
4. Something (Elvis and Harrison)
5. Get Back (McCartney)
6. One Night of Sin (Elvis)**

Separate Ways would be the final album Elvis and all of The Beatles would record together before they split up and all went their (no pun intended) separate ways, when looking back both parties expressed remorse over what happened including Elvis over a violent argument with John Lennon that both men would regret. The Beatles would split following the release as Lennon moved to New York with his wife and child, McCartney moved back to England and would take a hiatus from recording, Harrison would do the same, and Starr would stay with Elvis and go on to preform with him for the rest of their careers. A couple months after Separate Ways, Elvis would go to California and record a TV special simply named "Elvis", which fans have dubbed the '68 comeback special.

*This timeline's Separate Ways is not about a couple breaking up, instead it is about a generic group of friends breaking up and going their separate ways.
**This is a re-recording of the unreleased version of One Night/rehearsal for the '68 comeback special.

Does Manson not commit his murders ITTL.
 
So Manson is apart of The Beach Boys in ITTL?

Edit: So does this mean he still does commit the murders but later (like 1969 or the early 70s), do the Beach Boys get a bad rep for letting a murderer into their group?
Pretty much. After falling in with Dennis and dealing with Brian having a mental breakdown the Boys bring Manson in as a full member.

Did you make a follow-up album? This TL seems interesting. Also how would this album do on the charts? Because from what I can tell SMiLE still isn’t released, would it chart ALA Friends in OTL?
