The Beatles -- ‘Hold Me Tight’

Hold Me Tight (2.33)

Paul McCartney: Lead vocal, bass guitar; John Lennon: Backing vocal, rhythm guitar; George Harrison: Backing vocal, lead guitar; Ringo Starr: Drums;

This song was a left-over from the ‘Please Please Me’ sessions. They did thirteen takes in February but ended up junking it because the vocal was out of key. Seven months later they came back for take number twenty – missing out the intervening seven for good luck – and included it on ‘With The Beatles’.

They finally got what they wanted by splicing together takes 26 and 29.
