1963 Beatle demos released

The Beatles have a legacy that has had such an enormous impact on popular culture, everything they recorded demands to be heard. As a result, several alternate tracks from 1963 have been released to iTunes.

The songs included among the album's nearly 60 tracks are several Beatle classics, such as Love Me Do, She Loves You, Twist and Shout, I Saw Her Standing There, From Me To You, Do You Want To Know a Secret, Please Please Me and All My Loving. Also, many lesser known album cuts like Misery, I'll Get You, Thank You Girl, Hold Me Tight, and There's A Place are there. There are a few famous cover tunes, including Roll Over Beethoven, Money, Till There Was You, Long Tall Sally, and You Really Got a Hold on Me.

A few intriguing items are present. First, the Beatle cut One After 909 is here, having been composed in 1963 although it did not see release until the Let it Be album in 1970. Also, their version of Bad To Me, which they gave to Billy J. Kramer and the Dakotas, is among the tracks.

Copyright protection on these 1963 songs is good for 50 years, so the copyright will expire at the end of this month, December 31, 2013. However, now that they have been released, that protects their copyright for another 70 years due to a November revision of European Union intellectual property laws.

While these songs have been widely bootlegged over the years, the material used for this set, from better pre-print materials, will be of improved quality over what had heretofore been available.
