Unfortunately not. The only originals that they went on to release that are known to exist are from the July 1960 Forthlin Road demo tape. Early versions of I'll Follow The Sun and The One After 909 are heard on that. One interesting aspect of their history is that they actually played little of own material live until 1963. If you take a look at The Star Club recordings from December 1962, out of 30+ recordings, only 2 were Lennon-McCartney.

Thanks to both of you. And if you ever peg down that memory, Mr. Bellamy, please come back and share it.
I love the song. And Pepper being what it is, we can be pretty certain that the version of 64 we know is radically different from the version those early live audiences heard.
My favorite single moment on Pepper is the jarring frisson we get moving from Within You, Without You (another fave) to 64; from exotic Eastern philosophy to rooty-tooty music hall. An amazing moment.
