I was very impressed with many of the cover versions on this album, and some of them would've improved their earlier studio albums.

Crying, Waiting, Hoping would not sound out of place on Please Please Me, and it's a better vocal performance than Chains.

Other songs include Some Other Guy, and To Know Her is To Love Her.

Don't Ever Change; makes me wonder why the Paul/George duet style wasn't used more often. And Ooh! My Soul would have been a nice and less obvious alternative to Long Tall Sally if extended a little.

"I'll Be on My Way" sounds like some of the songs on A Hard Day's Night. They could have added this song to the album while still perserving the beauty that comes from the fact that all of the songs were written by Lennon/McCartney. a-hard-days-night-paul-7a-hard-days-night-john-7

I'd have liked The Honeymoon Song instead of A Taste Of Honey on Please Please Me. ATOH is too slow and plodding and those "doo doo doo doo" vocals are yucky whereas George plays a gorgeous solo on THS and i prefer Pauls vocal.

Also Sure To Fall on Beatles for Sale, would give the album a more rockabilly feel, and the beatles were still performing it in '64 albeit in May so they still knew the song.

I consider 'To know her is to love her' to be one of the best examples of how wonderful The Beatles could be at harmonies, it definitely would of been worthy of a place on an album. It would of suited being on the Please Please Me lp quite well.

And I absolutely LOVE 'Sweet little sixteen', I think John kinda killed it on his Rock 'n' Roll album.

"Some Other Guy" absolutely rocks. In a book I read about The Cavern, the fact was brought up that a lot of Merseyside bands covered this song. Some said there were groups that did it better than The Beatles. They said the best version was done by The Big Three.

Anyway, this is another awesome song written by the dynamic duo of Leiber and Stoller and I could imagine it on either of The Beatles' first 2 albums.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

Can buy Joe love! If you're going to buy that song, album, or T-shirt anyway; please consider using these links to support the Beatles Bible: Amazon | iTunes

I believe that Glad All Over would suit a spot on With The Beatles instead of Devil In Her Heart. Some Other Guy would also fit the album i think, probably replacing "You Really Gotta Hold On Me"

And if you saw my love, I'll love her to.

I mentioned it above but easily one of the best non-album released recorded tracks they did at the bbc.

I once read (from Lewinson? It was some time ago, so I don't quite remember who…) that "Some Other Guy" never got committed to an album after the "We Want Pete!" incident at the Cavern Club when the Beatles got filmed for their TV debut. I guess they didn't want that song stuck to them knowing it could perhaps bring comparsions to Pete Best, that "other guy" who Ringo replaced. a-hard-days-night-paul-11 pete-best
