I think it would have been great if they had done a completed version of George's All Things Must Pass during the Let It Be/Get Back sessions. Although George went on to produce an amazing solo album using many songs the Beatles had turned down, so it was his gain in the end.

I also love Leave My Kitten Alone - wish it had been included on Beatles For Sale instead of Mr Moonlight! I can't believe they didn't ever release it.

You're very welcome.
Get yourself a copy of the Anthology 1 double CD and you'll find it on the second disc.
I love all the Anthology CDs - all six discs - but I think disc 2 of Volume 1 is my favourite of the lot. There's some great out-takes from 1964 on there.

You're quite right about the Anthology collection.  They're a must have.

I think Leave My Kitten Alone rocks.  But I like Mr Moonlight too, despite the organ.

Who is present on that Lennon demo of Bad To Me?
It sounds like John is singing harmony with himself, but the lead guitar part doesn't sound like his playing at all.
And the whole arrangement of the song doesn't sound very "John" at all - sounds much more like Paul's work to me.

It's a great song - can't believe they decided to give that away and not record it themselves. It did get to number one in the UK for Billy J Kramer, though, so at least it wasn't lost completely. And it got knocked off the top spot by She Loves You, so it proves that The Beatles had plenty of good material at their disposal at the time so could afford to give away a few decent tunes.
