Never come across this until about 10 minutes ago. Didn't know what else to do with it though I could just get people turning 'round and grinning, "You didn't know!" If fake, remarkable. If real, which I think, even more remarkable.

Definitely sounds real to me. Nice find!
Very interesting. We all knew it was originally meant to have a slow tempo, but did anybody know it was written on piano?? Which John still sounded pretty shaky on?

It is John but not a 1965 demo. John Robertson in 'The Art and Music of John Lennon' has a Help! run-thru demo listed as being recorded by John in December 1970 along with 'I'm The Greatest', 'Make Love Not War', 'How', 'Oh Yoko' and 'Sally and Billy' and writes
"During his interview with Jann Wenner for Rolling Stone, Lennon expressed the desire to re-record Help! at the slower tempo in which he'd originally written the song, rather than the hurried take preferred as The Beatles single release. He devoted a minute or so during this composing tape to try and perfect a new arrangement, but succeeded only in dragging the first verse through an agonisingly slow haul, and then giving up in disgust when he couldnt work out the piano chords for the chorus."

^ Pretty much says it all.
This was supposed to be the original tempo until they decided that they wanted it to be a more "poppy" song.
"When I was a robber *Piano Chord* in Boston Place"
"Let's hope this turns out pretty darn good huh"
"Pete may be the best, but Ringo is the star"
Paul:"Don't be nervous John"
John:"I 'm not"

Does anyone have any idea if this is real or not? Its Stu singing Love Me Tender and I'd like to think that its really him, but you never can really know with stuff you find on Youtube. I don't know enough about recording and sound in them days to be able to tell if its real or fake.
Gosh though, looking at the pictures of Stu and Astrid…they were so beautiful

For a while it was hawked around as real, you could buy it on amazon and a few other places, but it was fakified soon after. Pity those who bought it.
