US rights to six Beatles songs sold for first time in 50 years

The US rights of six of The Beatles’ earliest songs will change hands for the first time in almost half a century.A portfolio of copyrights including hits such as She Loves You, I Saw Her Standing There and From Me To You has been snapped up by small music publisher Round Hill Music despite interest from larger global groups.Round Hill Music is a year-old US start up and bought the catalogue with Adage Classics, an intellectual property rights group. It declined to disclose the terms of the deal.Music lawyer Michael Sukin said that the songs could be worth up to $10m or 500,000 times what they were once offered for in 1964.

Anyone know what the other three songs are apart from She Loves You, Saw Her Standing and From Me To You?
I wonder why George Pincus only acquired rights to six songs back in 1963 and didn't end up as the publisher of the whole lot?
