The Songs Lennon And McCartney Gave Away, EMI NUT 18.

Published June 10th, 2017

Released April 18, 1979. The conceptual compilation album containing the original artist recordings of songs composed by John Lennon and Paul McCartney in the 1960s that they had elected not to release as Beatles songs.¬†During their career as the main song writers for the Beatles, John Lennon and Paul McCartney wrote a number of songs that thay gave away to other artists, many of whom were old friends from Liverpool. Curiously, the first song that Lennon and McCartney gave away – “I’ll Be On My Way”, recorded by Billy J. Kramer in 1963, is also the only song The Beatles officially recorded for BBC on 4 April 1963. Only one song on this album does not come from The Beatles’ collective recording career, “I’m A Greatest”, a song written by John Lennon that he gave to Ringo for his 1973 album, Ringo. The 19 remaining tracks perfomed by ten other artists were given away during The Beatles’ career from 1962 to 1969.
