Take 2

A complete take.
Take 2 of 12 takes. A very lively version which can very well compete (bar some mistakes) with the 'official' version. Great solo from George. Recorded (like the next 3 tracks) during the 'Please, Please Me' LP-sessions, 11th Feb. 1963.

5.
From Me To You(Lennon/McCartney)
Song
Take 2
5 Mar 1963
The Beatles
This and the following 2 tracks were recorded during sessions for this, the Beatles third single on 5th March 1963. The version on this CD is very different to the 'released version'. It is slower and bluesier. You are hearing take 2 of 13.

Can't Buy Me Love(Lennon/McCartney)
Song
Take 2
29 Jan 1964
The Beatles
A well known Beatle-evergreen in a very different, early arrangement. By comparing this version (take 2) to the 'official' take 4, you can tell how much arrangement-work the Beatles (and producer George Martin) had to put into their songs to turn them into hit-singles. Recorded in Paris while on a two-weeks- engagement at the Olympia Theatre 29th Jan 1964.
16.
A Hard Day's Night(Lennon/McCartney)
Song
Take 1
16 Apr 1964
SS.AHDN.01.01
The Beatles
very first studio-take of the title song for the Beatles' 1964 film. At the beginning of this song you can hear them trying out the famous opening-chord on 12-string guitar. Recorded 16th April, 1964.
17.
Leave My Kitten Alone(John/Turner/McDougal)
Song
(unidentified)
14 Aug 1964
The Beatles
A storming cover-version of a Johnny Preston-rocker. Great song, great version - why was it never released? Recorded 14th August, 1964.
18.
I'm A Loser(Lennon/McCartney)
Song
Take 2

Take 1
8 Oct 1964
SS.PM1.15.01
The Beatles
Only a 1:12 excerpt has surfaced so far.
A very primitive first of seven takes. Played with only rhythm Guitar, bass and drums, 8th Oct, 1964.
20.
I Feel Fine(Lennon/McCartney)
Song
Take 1
18 Oct 1964
The Beatles
The very first attempt at this, the Beatles' eight single. A breakdown, but interesting nonetheless because it reveals that the song was originally written in a different key. The song had to be transposed because as you can hear it is too high for John's voice. Recorded in nine takes on 18th Oct, 1964.
21.
Honey Don't(Perkins)
Song
Take
26 Oct 1964
The Beatles
On Monday 26th Oct, 1964 the Beatles recorded five takes of this Carl Perkins-original. This is one of the early takes.

15 Feb 1965

Basically the 'official ninth Beatles-single (A-and-B side) but mixed directly off the four-track-master and thus sounding superior than the 'released' versions.

Basically the 'official ninth Beatles-single (A-and-B side) but mixed directly off the four-track-master and thus sounding superior than the 'released' versions.

Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)(Lennon/McCartney)
Song
Take 2
21 Oct 1965

SS.RS.10.01
The Beatles
An early acoustic take of this "Rubber Soul' tune. Again very different to the issued version, with the middle eight not yet written. Recording date: 6th Nov, 1965. (this date is wrong, it was recorded on 24th Oct, 1965)

12-Bar Original(Lennon/McCartney/Harrison/Starkey)
Song
(unidentified)
4 Nov 1965
The Beatles
On 4th Nov, 1965 the Beatles (with George Martin on harmonium) tried - for some reason - to become Booker T & the MG's (or something like that). But without a proper song to play, they quickly got lost.
