"It's for You" Demo
« on: August 01, 2016, 07:10:09 AM »

Cilla Black's collection of demos had a mislabeled surprise in it.

The Beatles’ Long Lost Demo ‘It’s For You’ Found

I love this quote from The Beatles Shop manager:
“As soon as I heard ‘It’s For You’, I thought: ‘Oh God, that’s not Cilla Black, it’s Paul McCartney,'” Stephen Bailey told the Liverpool Echo. “I was shaking with excitement and speechless. Apart from a few crackles that you get with acetates, the quality is fine. It’s a wonderful recording.”

What a cool find. Who knows what else lurks at the back of people's cupboards and in attics.

Yes I remember that lovely song, typical McCartney when you think about it, boy him & John were on fire, when i think about the songs they gave away, Johns song 'Bad To Me' is still a favourite

Thanks kel  :)

There is a demo version of Bad To Me circulating if I'm correct.

From Richie Unterbergers "The Unreleased Beatles":

Cilla Black has recalled getting a demo of "It's For You", featuring just Paul and guitar, before recording her cover of this Lennon-McCartney song on July 2, 1964. []

Amazing that it truely excist. Would love to hear the full version.
