Officially Unreleased Beatle Songs

       _A list of officially-unreleased Beatle songs_

       Compiled by Bruce Precourt, version 1.0, May 1993

   (Sources: _All Together Now_ by Castleman & Podrazik, 1975,
       and _The Beatles: A Day in the Life_ by Schultheiss, 1981)

The songs are listed chronologically. The list is not comprehensive,
i.e., it does not list ALL songs from a particular session, but only
those not appearing on legitimate releases; e.g., the Decca audition
tape also included Till There Was You, Please Mr. Postman and Money,
but these appeared on later legitimate recordings.

I've tried to include only _Beatles_ songs (as opposed to solo
works), but there is understandably much uncertainty on many of the
later ones which I've never heard.

The list:

Jan 1962 (Decca audition): The Sheik of Araby, Red Sails in the
Sunset, Like Dreamers Do, Hello Little Girl, Love of the Loved, To
Know Her is To Love Her, Memphis, Three Cool Cats

Early-mid 1962: I Lost My Little Girl, Looking Glass, Thinking of
Linking, The Years Roll Along, Winston's Walk, Keep Looking That
Way, Catswalk

Your Feet's Too Big

Summer 1962 (from BBC Radio): I Got a Woman, I Just Don't
Understand, Lonesome Tears in My Eyes, I'm Gonna Sit Right Down and
Cry Over You, Sure to Fall, To Know Her is To Love Her, The

All Over, Nothin' Shakin', So How Come, Crying Waiting Hoping
