The Beatles Past Masters Volume Two

This collection, (along with Volume One) is that which comprises The Beatles A and B sides of singles, some special EP tracks, and other songs such as the German versions of "She Loves You" and " I Want To Hold Your Hand." (Volume One). At the time these two volumes were released, was the first time one could have these songs, most previously released as singles only on vinyl, in digital CD quality. Since that time there have been other CDs. However, these two CDs are an outstanding collection and a must for every Beatles fan and collector!

So now, here is The Beatles, Past Masters, Volume 2.

Day Tripper

(Lennon/McCartney)

Initially released on the single with "We Can Work It Out," it was The Beatles first double A-sided single. It was completed in three takes in one recording session on October 16, 1965, at Kenwood. This single was released on December 3, 1965, the same day as their album, "Rubber Soul." This single went straight to No. 1 on December 8, 1965, and stayed there for five weeks, selling 750,000 by 12/08, and one million by 12/20. This would be the seventh consecutive Beatles￿ single to enter the charts at No. 1, and their tenth consecutive single to reach No. 1 in Britain. World-wide, this single sold about three million copies.

Day Tripper was written mainly by John, with Paul￿s help. John and Paul sing lead, with George assisting on harmony. Lennon also played the tambourine. Basically, the song is about LSD and tripping, using phrases that The Beatles knew the kids would understand, but older adults may not. The reference to "She￿s a big teaser," meant is sexual terms, the likes of a prick teaser. The Beatles thought that the "mums and dads" wouldn￿t get it but the kids would.

Got a good reason for taking the easy way out
Got a good reason for taking the easy way out now
She was a day tripper, a one way ticket yeah
It took me so long to find out, and I found out

She's a big teaser, she took me half the way there
She's a big teaser, she took me half the way there now
She was a day tripper, a one way ticket yeah
It took me so long to find out, and I found out

Tried to please her, she only played one night stands
Tried to please her, she only played one night stands now
She was a day tripper, a Sunday driver yeah
It took me so long to find out, and I found out

Day tripper
Day tripper yeah
Day tripper
Day tripper yeah
Day tripper

We Can Work It Out

(Lennon/McCartney)

Included on the same single as "Day Tripper", this song was recorded in two takes on October 20, 1965. Written mainly by Paul, with John contributing the middle section, the song deals entirely with Paul￿s relationship with Jane Asher, and its various problems. Paul sings lead with both John & George singing backgrounds and harmony. The harmonium is by John.

Try to see it my way
Do I have to keep on talking till I can't go on?
While you see it your way
Run the risk of knowing that our love may soon be gone
We can work it out
We can work it out

Think of what you're saying
You can get it wrong and still you think that it's alright
Think of what I'm saying
We can work it out and get it straight, or say good night
We can work it out
We can work it out

Life is very short, and there's no time
For fussing and fighting, my friend
I have always thought that it's a crime
So I will ask you once again

Try to see it my way
Only time will tell if I am right or I am wrong
While you see it your way
There's a chance that we may fall apart before too long
We can work it out
We can work it out

Life is very short, and there's no time
For fussing and fighting, my friend
I have always thought that it's a crime
So I will ask you once again

Try to see it my way
Only time will tell if I am right or I am wrong
While you see it your way
There's a chance that we may fall apart before too long
We can work it out
We can work it out

Paperback Writer
(Lennon/McCartney)

The single consisting of "Paperback Writer" and "Rain" was the twelfth Beatles￿ single, and entered the charts at No. 2 on June 15, 1966. It sold more than 500,000 copies in Britain and over one million in the US. Reaching No. 1 in the US, it also reached number one in Holland, Hong Kong, Denmark, Germany, Austria, Ireland, New Zealand, Australia, Malaysia and Singapore. The first single in the year 1966, it was released on June 10.

Paul wrote most of the lyrics and the tune, and John contributed the remaining lyrics. Paul sings lead, with John and George harmonizing. Paul plays his Rickenbacker bass guitar and the Vox organ. The basic track of guitars, drums and vocals were recorded on Wednesday, April 16, 1966 at EMI Studio No. 3. Although some special effects were added a few days later, the entire song took ten hours to record.

Dear Sir or Madam, will you read my book?
It took me years to write, will you take a look?
It's based on a novel by a man named Lear
And I need a job, so I want to be a paperback writer
Paperback writer

It's the dirty story of a dirty man
And his clinging wife doesn't understand
His son is working for the Daily Mail
It's a steady job but he wants to be a paperback writer
Paperback writer

Paperback writer

It's a thousand pages, give or take a few
I'll be writing more in a week or two
I can make it longer if you like the style
I can change it round and I want to be a paperback writer
Paperback writer

If you really like it you can have the rights
It could make a million for you overnight
If you must return it, you can send it here
But I need a break and I want to be a paperback writer
Paperback writer

Paperback writer

Paperback writer, paperback writer
Paperback writer, paperback writer
Paperback writer, paperback writer

Rain

(Lennon/McCartney)

Released on the single with "Paperback Writer," "Rain," was recorded in late April 1966. Written entirely by John who sings lead, the song also included Paul and George with supporting vocals.

If the rain comes they run and hide their heads
They might as well be dead
If the rain comes, if the rain comes

When the sun shines they slip into the shade
(When the sun shines down)
And drink their lemonade
(When the sun shines down) When the sun shines, when the sun shines

Rain, I don't mind
Shine, the weather's fine

I can show you that when it starts to rain
(When the rain comes down)
Everything's the same
(When the rain comes down)
I can show you, I can show you

Rain, I don't mind
Shine, the weather's fine

Can you hear me, that when it rains and shines
(When it rains and shines)
It's just a state of mind?
(When it rains and shines)
Can you hear me, can you hear me?

Sdaeh rieht edih dna nur yeht semoc niar eht fI

Lady Madonna

(Lennon/McCartney)

The first single of 1968 contained "Lady Madonna," and "The Inner Light." This song is special in that it was the first Beatles￿ single to contain a song written by George Harrison, with "The Inner Light." The single entered the charts on March 20, 1968 at No. 6 and a week later went to No. 1. Global sales went to about two million, with this single reaching No. 1 also in Germany, Poland, Denmark, Sweden, France and Australia.

Written by Paul, recording began in February 1968. On the first recording session, John and George played two guitars through the same amplifier, while Ringo played drums. Paul then added the bass guitar and his own voice. Then four jazz musicians, Ronnie Scott, Harry Klein, Bill Povey and Bill Jackson all played saxophones. This was a last minute addition instigated strictly by Paul. Also on "Lady Madonna," Paul plays the piano, with backing vocals by all four Beatles, all singing with their hands cupped around their mouths!

Lady Madonna, children at your feet
Wonder how you manage to make ends meet
Who finds the money? When you pay the rent?
Did you think that money was Heaven sent?
Friday night arrives without a suitcase
Sunday morning creep in like a nun
Monday's child has learned to tie his bootlace
See how they run


Lady Madonna, baby at your breast

Wonders how you manage to feed the rest

See how they run

Lady Madonna, lying on the bed
Listen to the music playing in your head

Tuesday afternoon is never ending
Wednesday morning papers didn't come
Thursday night you stockings needed mending
See how they run

Lady Madonna, children at your feet
Wonder how you manage to make ends meet

The Inner Light

(George Harrison)

As said, this is George￿s first song to appear on a single. All the music was recorded in India at EMI Studios, Bombay, in January, 1968, using Indian musicians until George￿s control. George added his own voice to the basic instrumental track in England on February 6. John and Paul added the backing harmony.

Without going out of my door
I can know all things on Earth
Without looking out of my window
I could know the ways of Heaven

The farther one travels
The less one knows
The less one really knows

Without going out of your door
You can know all things on Earth
Without looking out of your window
You could know the ways of Heaven

The farther one travels
The less one knows
The less one really knows

Arrive without travelling
See all without looking
Do all without doing

Hey Jude

(Lennon/McCartney)

This single consisting of "Hey Jude" and "Revolution," was unique in that it was the first to be released on The Beatles￿ Apple Label. The eighteenth single to be released by The Beatles, it entered the Top 30 charts at No. 3 on September 4, 1968. One week later it rose to No. 1 where it stayed here for three before being knocked out by Mary Hopkins's "Those Were The Days," the second single released on Apple Records, which was produced by Paul.

Released on August 26 and August 30, in various parts of the world, it sold 250,000 copies by September 4. By the 27th of September sales rose to 558,535. The total sales reached about 700,000 by the end of November, and by December 31, was about 800,000. World sales topped two million by September 11, and October 20, reached 4,738,000. By October 1972, it had sold nearly 8 million copies. To date it is the highest selling Beatles song in their history. The single reached No.1 in the US, Britain, Germany, Holland, Belgium, Malaysia, Singapore, New Zealand, Sweden, Norway and Denmark.

The song was written by Paul with help from John and final touches were put on the song on Friday July 26, 1968 at Paul￿s house. The following Monday, The Beatles rehearsed the song at EMI Studios. The next night, Tuesday, The Beatles recorded the song while being filmed at EMI for a fifty minute feature about the national music of Britain. On July 31, 1968, the Beatles moved from EMI to Trident Studios, where they scraped the first version of the song, and recorded a second one. On this version, George played electric guitar, Paul played the piano, Ringo was on the tambourine, and John played on rhythm.

On the first backing track, Paul added his solo voice, after which the other four Beatles joined in for the harmonies. Then Paul brought in a forty piece orchestra on Thursday August 1. Paul initially wanted a full symphony orchestra of about 100 musicians, however George Martin said that it was not possible on such short notice. By the end of the evening, the orchestra members were asked if they would clap and sing the "la-la-la" chorus, which they agreed to do. On Friday, August 2, the first rough discs were made.

Hey Jude was the longest single The Beatles ever released at 7:15 (some versions are 7:11) and contains one of the longest fade-outs ever recorded at four minutes.

Hey Jude, don't make it bad
Take a sad song and make it better
Remember to let her into your heart
Then you can start to make it better

Hey Jude, don't be afraid
You were made to go out and get her
The minute you let her under your skin
Then you begin to make it better

And anytime you feel the pain, hey Jude, refrain
Don't carry the world upon your shoulders

For well you know that it's a fool who plays it cool
By making his world a little colder
Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah

Hey Jude, don't let me down
You have found her, now go and get her
Remember to let her into your heart
Then you can start to make it better

So let it out and let it in, hey Jude, begin
You're waiting for someone to perform with
And don't you know that it's just you, hey Jude, you'll do
The movement you need is on your shoulder
Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah yeah

Hey Jude, don't make it bad
Take a sad song and make it better
Remember to let her under your skin
Then you'll begin to make it
Better better better better better better, oh

Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Jude
Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Jude
Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Jude
Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Jude
Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Jude
Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Jude
Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Jude
Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Jude

Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Jude
Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Jude (fade out)

Revolution

(Lennon/McCartney)

The flip side to "Hey Jude," was "Revolution." This version heard here is one of three "Revolution," songs released by the Beatles in 1968. This one was the last to be started and the first to be issued. Recording took 16 takes and began on July 10 and was completed two days later. John is the lead singer, with Paul on the organ and the piano. They also used as a guest musician, Nicky Hopkins, a leading British session musician, who contributed to the piano track.

You say you want a revolution
Well you know
We all want to change the world
You tell me that it's evolution
Well you know
We all want to change the world

But when you talk about destruction
Don't you know you can count me out

Don't you know it's gonna be alright
Alright, alright

You say you got a real solution
Well you know
We don't love to see the plan
You ask me for a contribution
Well you know
We're doing what we can
But if you want money for people with minds that hate
All I can tell you is brother you have to wait

Don't you know it's gonna be alright
Alright, alright, al...

You say you'll change the constitution
Well you know
We all want to change your head
You tell me it's the institution
Well you know
You better free your mind instead
But if you go carrying pictures of Chairman Mao
You ain't going to make it with anyone anyhow

Don't you know know it's gonna be alright
Alright, alright

Alright, alright
Alright, alright
Alright, alright
Alright, alright

Get Back

(Lennon/McCartney)

The phrase "Get Back," was originally the title of not only a song, but also the recording sessions that eventually became "Let It Be." The song was recorded live, without any overdubs, with organist Billy Preston, at The Beatles￿ new Apple Studios at Saville Row in London on January 28, 1969, five days after it was first attempted. This version heard here was issued as the single on April 11, 1969, and is a different recording that closes the original "Let It Be," compact disc, which was taped the previous day on January 27.

The song was written by Paul, who sings lead and plays bass guitar. John played lead with George on rhythm guitar, with Ringo on the drums. Billy Preston, mentioned herein was the first guest artist to be credited as playing on a Beatles single - -the label read, "The Beatles with Billy Preston."


Jojo was a man who thought he was a loner
But he knew it wouldn't last
Jojo left his home in Tucson, Arizona
For some California grass

Get back, get back
Get back to where you once belonged
Get back, get back
Get back to where you once belonged
Get back Jojo
Go home

Get back, get back
Get back to where you once belonged
Get back, get back
Get back to where you once belonged
Get back Jo

Sweet Loretta Martin thought she was a woman
But she was another man
All the girls around her say she's got it coming
But she gets it while she can

Get back, get back
Get back to where you once belonged
Get back, get back
Get back to where you once belonged
Get back Loretta
Go home


Get back, get back
Get back to where you once belonged
Get back, get back
Get back to where you once belonged
Woo...

Get back Loretta
Your mother￿s waiting for you

Wearing her high-heel shoes

And her low-neck sweater

Get back home Loretta

Get Back, get back

Get back to where you once belonged

Ah, Get back, get back

Don￿t Let Me Down

(Lennon/McCartney)

The "B" side to "get Back," this song was written by John who sings the lead, which is a doubled tracked lead vocal, with Paul helping out with the backing vocals. Billy Preston also is featured on the electric piano.

Don't let me down, don't let me down
Don't let me down, don't let me down

Nobody ever loved me like she does
Oh, she does, yeah, she does
And if somebody loved me like she do me
Oh, she do me, yes, she does

Don't let me down, don't let me down
Don't let me down, don't let me down

I'm in love for the first time
Don't you know it's gonna last
It's a love that lasts forever
It's a love that had no past (Seeking past)

Don't let me down, don't let me down
Don't let me down, don't let me down

And from the first time that she really done me
Oh, she done me, she done me good
I guess nobody ever really done me
Oh, she done me, she done me good

Don't let me down, hey don't let me down
Heeeee, don't let me down

Don't let me down
Don't let me down, don't let me let down
Can you dig it? Don't let me down

The Ballad Of John And Yoko

(Lennon/McCartney)

This song was written by John, about his marriage to Yoko, their trips to Paris and Amsterdam, and their life in general. John sings lead with Paul helping with backing vocals near the end. George and Ringo did not play on this song. John plays acoustic and two lead guitars, percussion, and lead vocal. Paul played the drums, bass guitar, piano, maracas, and the backing vocals.

John was quite impatient on this one, getting it recorded and released in lightning time. Recorded and mixed in one eight and one-half hour session, at Abbey Road on April 14, 1969. It was issued as a Beatles single, their twentieth, on May 1. This version heard here is take number ten, of eleven takes.

Standing in the dock at Southampton
Trying to get to Holland or France
The man in the mac said, "You've got to go back"
You know they didn't even give us a chance

Christ you know it ain't easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
They're going to crucify me
Finally made the plane into Paris
Honeymooning down by the Seine
Peter Brown called to say
"You can make it OK
You can get married in Gibraltar, near Spain"

Christ you know it ain't easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
They're going to crucify me

Drove from Paris to the Amsterdam Hilton
Talking in our beds for a week
The newspapers said, "Say what you doing in bed?"
I said, "We're only trying to get us some peace"

Christ you know it ain't easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
They're going to crucify me

Saving up your money for a rainy day
Giving all your clothes to charity
Last night the wife said
"Oh boy, when you're dead
You don't take nothing with you
But your soul, think!"

Made a lightning trip to Vienna
Eating chocolate cake in a bag
The newspapers said, "She's gone to his head
They look just like two gurus in drag"

Christ you know it ain't easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
They're going to crucify me

Caught an early plane back to London
Fifty acorns tied in a sack
The men from the press said, "We wish you success,
It's good to have the both of you back"

Christ you know it ain't easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
They're going to crucify me
The way things are going
They're going to crucify me

Old Brown Shoe

(George Harrison)

Issued as the "B" side to "The Ballad Of John And Yoko," it was recorded in four takes at Abbey Road on April 16, 1969. It was completed two days later. George sings lead backed up by John and Paul.

I want a love that's right but right is only half of what's wrong
I want a short haired girl who sometimes wears it twice as long
Now I'm stepping out this old brown shoe, baby, I'm in love with you
I'm so glad you came here, it won't be the same now, I'm telling you

You know you pick me up from where some try to drag me down
And when I see your smile replace every thoughtless frown
Got me escaping from this zoo, baby, I'm in love with you
I'm so glad you came here, it won't be the same now when I'm with you

If I grow up I'll be a singer wearing rings on every finger
Not worrying what they or you say I'll live and love and maybe someday
Who knows, baby, you may comfort me

I may appear to be imperfect, my love is something you can't reject
I'm changing faster than the weather if you and me should get together
Who knows, baby, you may comfort me

I want that love of yours, to miss that love is something I'd hate
I'll make an early start, I'm making sure that I'm not late
For you sweet top lip I'm in the queue, baby, I'm in love with you
I'm so glad you came here, it won't be the same now when I'm with you
I'm so glad you came here, it won't be the same now when I'm with you

Across The Universe

(Lennon/McCartney)

This version heard here is different, but not different from the version on the "Let It be," compact disc. This one is that which is commonly referred to as the "Wildlife" version because it appeared first on the charity album titled "No One￿s Gonna Change Our World," for the World Wildlife Fund, released on December 12, 1969. Recorded especially for this purpose it also contained wildlife sound effects. But the song had been recorded much earlier, in eight takes on February 4 and 8, 1968, as the "B" side to "Lady Madonna," for that single. In March 1970, Phil Spector re-worked the original tape, omitted some of the original instrumentation in a new re-mix, omitted the wildlife sound effects, slowed it down then added an orchestra and choir.

The album "No One￿s Gonna Change Our World," was released in 1978 with all the royalties going towards funds dealing with rare animals in danger of extinction. Only released in Britain, George Martin helped with the project. The version of "Across The Universe," in its original form used on the charity album was not included on any Beatles album until the 1978 Beatles Collection, when it was included on the free Rarities album included with this boxed set.

This original version, on the charity album, and not which appears on the original "Let It Be," was made as said in February 1968. Interestingly, John and Paul decided at the last moment that they needed two girls to sing a high falsetto passage in the song. So, Paul went outside and started talking to the Beatle fans gathered outside the recording studio gates. Eventually he invited two girls inside the studio for a try-out. These two very privileged girls were Lizzie Bravo of 16 Compayne Gardens, London, and Gayleen Pease of 17 Amhurst Road, also of London. The Beatles found the girls to be ideal for the purpose intended, and they sang the line "nothing going to change my world," over and over and over again.

Words are flowing out like endless rain into a paper cup
They slither wildly as they slip away across the universe
Pools of sorrow, waves of joy are drifting through my open mind
Possessing and caressing me
Jai Guru Deva OM

Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world

Images of broken light which dance before me like a million eyes
They call me on and on across the universe
Thoughts meander like a restless wind inside a letter box
They tumble blindly as they make their way across the universe
Jai Guru Deva OM

Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world

Sounds of laughter shades of live are ringing through my open ears
Inciting and inviting me
Limitless undying love which shines around me like a million suns
It calls me on and on, across the universe
Jai Guru Deva OM

Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world

Jai Guru Deva
Jai Guru Deva
Jai Guru Deva
Jai Guru Deva
Jai Guru Deva (fade out)

Let It Be

(Lennon/McCartney)

This version heard here was that which was released as a single (The Beatles last) on March 6, 1970, and seems the same as that which is only the album of the same name. But it is different! The major difference is the lead guitar solo and its slightly longer running time. Actually, the two versions were mixed from the same eight-track master recording which contains both guitar solos playing at the same time. The song has a long recording history. It was first recorded at Apple Studios on January 25, 1969, then the released versions come from a January 31st session, with over-dubs from April 30 1969 and January 4, 1970. During the January 4th session, Lennon was absent.

The song was written by Paul, who sang lead, with George and John supplying the background harmony. Paul plays piano, with John on the bass guitar, and George plays a guitar passage. On the album version, George plays his Lesley guitar, which resembles an organ at times. The Beatles, (basically Paul) added the orchestra. Billy Preston also plays on this one-- on the organ.


When I find myself in times of trouble
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
And in my hour of darkness
She is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be

And when the broken hearted people
Living in the world agree
There will be an answer, let it be
For though they may be parted
There is still a chance that they will see
There will be an answer, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Yeah there will be an answer, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be

Let it be, let it be
Ah let it be, yeah let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be
And when the night is cloudy
There is still a light that shines on me
Shine on until tomorrow, let it be
I wake up to the sound of music,
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
Yeah let it be, let it be
Let it be, yeah let it be

Oh there will be an answer, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Let it be, yeah let it be
Oh there will be an answer, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Ah let it be, yeah let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be

You Know My Name

(Look Up The Number)

(Lennon/McCartney)

The "B" side to "Let It Be," this song was recorded much earlier, about the time as the songs on Sgt. Pepper. It was written by John, who sings solo, with Mal Evans supplying the background vocals.

It was recorded without any vocals in five parts, all separate, at Abbey Road on May 17, and June 7 & 8, 1967. It was then complied into one master take on June 9, 1967. It then sat on a shelf until April 30, 1969, when John and Paul added vocals, aided by Evans. Originally the song lasted more than 6 minutes, and despite three different re-mixes, it was again left unissued. On November 26, 1969, Lennon edited it down to the best four minutes for release by the Plastic Ono Band. That never happened, and about three months later it was finally cropped for use as the "B: side to "Let It Be." A rather bizarre song, it also features the late Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones who plays saxophone. His recording was done on June 8, 1967.
