This is a great song, the funny thing is that Paul technically gets lead vocals on this song despite it being written by Harrison/Lennon, the only song with that credit, although to be fair this is an instrumental and the only 2 vocal parts in the song are 2 barely audible yells by Paul at the start of the B section.

How can Paul technically get lead vocal if "this is an instrumental and the only 2 vocal parts in the song are 2 barely audible yells by Paul at the start of the B section"? 

In no way is it a lead vocal.

I guess calling it lead vocals is a stretch, but Paul is still the only person to speak on the song.

Why isn't "Cry For A Shadow" Canon?'

 

It was released on a Single while they were The Beatles, but not on Parlophone.

 

Thoughts?  Or do you believe it is Canon??

Cry for a Shadow definitely isn't canon. It was one of two tracks (the other being Ain't She Sweet ) they were given during the Hamburg Polydor sessions backing Tony Sheridan.

Pete was still the drummer.

The canon is only those songs released on single, EP, or album on Parlophone/Apple in the UK between 4 October 1962 (Love Me Do  single) and 8 May 1970 (Let It Be  album).

I tend to agree with you, but Love Me Do was also a single without Ringo on drums, since Allan White was on drums. Why would that single be Canon??

Both 'Love Me Do ' versions are canon. Ringo's drumming was the single before Andy's drumming was released on the album and was an official Beatles release. As said by Ron, the canon stretches to include all songs released on Parlophone/Apple from 'Love Me Do ' in October 1962 to May 1970 with the release of 'Let It Be '.

Yeah, it’s not canon. That version of Ain’t She Sweet is amazing though...John’s vocals are incredible. One of his most energetic and heartfelt vocals ever. Not canon but still something to appreciate. In fact it’s one of the songs I’d cite when wanting to demonstrate his abilities as a singer. That’s how much I like it.
