I was listening to the January 28th session and came upon a few tracks, that like Suzy's Parlour, I assumed was an abscure rockabilly cover but looked into it and saw they are in fact originals. There is very little information about the songs, even Joe's article only mentions them by name in a list.

Played at the end of day 17 (Jan 28), these are some originals that come from the sessions

Greasepaint On Your Face is a relatively unitelligible McCartney Tune. 

George's How Do You Tell Someone is pretty great. Sounds like a perfect mix of Rubber Soul George and ATMP George. It has a descending melody and riff kind of similar to Think For Yourself , but a groove similar to If I Needed Someone . Real interesting.

I Will Always Look For You is not really a really a real song, written by Paul.

Sticks and Stones is a Billy Preston tune I think, can't seem to find an orginal recording of the song but boy are Billy's keys sweet on this one.

Right before that is Unless He Has A Song, a nice Gospel song by Billy Preston.

 

Suzy's Parlour is another notable orignal from A/B road. Can we compile a master list?

January 14th had a nice stretch of fresh Originals played without George during his absence

Madman (Lennon) - Very consistent with Lennon's output in 1969. John plays Rhodes electric piano, which reminds me on the Imagine sessions George and Nicky Hopkins. This song could have made a great Single, by the Beatles or John solo. Also could fit on Plastic Ono Band as well as Imagine .

Watching Rainbows is another cool one played that day. It sounds a bit like Ive Got A Feeling mixed with Quinn The Eskimo. Paul played lead guitar on this one, and it has a really nice playout ending. 

Take This Hammer is a Lennon song. Nothing really special about it, it is a Blues tune with a nice vocal melody. Paul's lead blues work is actually really solid. The ending has a really cool back and forth between piano and guitar Lennon/McCartney.

Don't Stop Running was the last number of the day, a group effort it seems. A nice song

McCartney gave a nice operatic tunes Song of Love and Clear as a Bell, working on Back Seat of My Car as well during this time.

Edit: nearing the end of the session there is a fantastic version of Get Back with John on vocals and Paul once again delivering some nice licks on guitar.

Here is Joe's article on this day

Interesting how much great material came out of the same day as the "Two Junkies" interview.

In the 1970 Let It Be film soundtrack itself, apart from Suzy Parker (Lennon/McCartney/Harrison/Starkey), there is also Jazz Piano Song (McCartney/Starkey), and Paul briefly sings part of a 1957 Lennon/McCartney song called Just Fun:

They said our love was just fun
The day that our friendship begun
There's no blue moon that I can see
There's never been in history

That scene was filmed on the 14th. The second full session without George. 

The Article says

A piano boogie duet featuring McCartney and Starr was included in the Let It Be film, and was copyrighted Jazz Piano Song by Apple.
