Get Back
Sounds nothing like the released version! John and Paul yell out the words to this scorching rocker.
226K, 1:55,4 min

Don't Let Me Down
A very early demo. All he has is the "I'm in love for the first time...." and "Nobody ever loved me like she does...." parts.

Let it Be
A rehersal where Paul is teaching the other guys the chords to Let it Be. Because no one can read music, he plays the piano and sings the chords instead of the words.

Rocker/Save the Last Dance for Me/Don't Let Me Down
Actually tracks 2-4 from the original Get Back album. It starts with some jamming that goes into Save the Last Dance for Me, which leads into the alternate studio version of Don't Let Me Down. Very interesting.

She's a Woman
The entire very primative Take 2.

214K, 1:49,7 min

Yes It Is
A pretty funny recording. Takes 2-7 of John trying to get down basic guitar and a guide vocal.

She's a Woman
In Stereo. From the Hollywood Bowl, 8/29/65. The crowd could hear Paul, but his mike to the tape player was broken, so all you hear is the music and John a little. It's like Beatles karaoke!! :^)~
