It's another large portion of Songs The Beatles Gave Away. Played in order of release, and this time from where we left off in 1964 thru 1969. In those early days, this was done with the encouragement of the Beatles' manager Brian Epstein, as they supplied some of their songs to artists also managed by Epstein. And usually they were friends with John Lennon and Paul McCartney. Artists began clamoring to secure original Lennon–McCartney songs, knowing that there would automatically be media and public interest in such songs. Oh, not enough time to fit in, so I left out Penina, written by McCartney at the Hotel Penina in December 1968, when he was vacationing in Portugal. The song was first recorded by the hotel's band Jotta Herre, but a month later it was also recorded by the singer Carlos Mendes- it's the Mendes version that is the better one. Again, some of these you'll know and some you won't. And again, I hope you'll enjoy ALL!
