The beatles could have made a with the beatles album without covers just with already recorded songs.

All original songs from with the beatles
+The 2 Singles From Me To You and She Loves You both with their bsides. The anthology mix of One After 909. The 14th song is the hardest but in the compilation I made on my iPad i took I'll be on my way from Live At The BBC.

I didn't take I Want To Hold Your Hand because i think it was recorded after with the beatles

I like the addition of "One After 909", but am not too sure about the rest.

The 2 Singles From Me To You and She Loves You both with their bsides

Back in the day, singles were a great way to keep the music in front of as many people as possible for a price they could afford. If these songs were added to the album, it would either cheapen the album with the singles still out or they would have to come up with 2 other singles to replace them.

This is an interesting topic as I'm sure they could have made it all originals if they really wanted to. I like this album just fine, but I do think you had a good idea with replacing at least one of the covers with "OA909".

Regardless, whatever you do, please don't take away "You Really Got A Hold On Me".a-hard-days-night-john-1

In my opinion With the Beatles has some great covers (Money, You Really Got A Hold On Me…) so I haven't ever thought of replacing them…

I have to disagree with that. The Beatles were so busy during 1963. During this time period, they wrote songs on buses and in hotel rooms. Besides, the cover versions on the album make it better, especially "Till There Was You," and "You Rally Got a Hold on Me."a-hard-days-night-john-1ahdn_paul_06

Indeed. Also, two of those single b-sides ("I'll Get You" and "Thank You Girl") are, I think, as weak or weaker than WTB's weakest originals.

I just want to play. I’d like to think I could work opposite Sinatra, B.B. King, the Beatles, or a polka band... - Jazz musician Rahsaan Roland Kirk, 1967
