About

From Wikipedia:

The Beatles Bootleg Recordings 1963 is a compilation album of 59 recordings by The Beatles, released on December 17, 2013, exclusively through the iTunes Store. The compilation was released worldwide in order to prevent recordings made by the Beatles in 1963 from legally entering the public domain in Europe due to revised copyright laws. The band’s first single “Love Me Do” previously entered public domain in 2012.

The Beatles Bootleg Recordings 1963 includes 15 studio outtakes and 44 live BBC tracks, adding to those released previously on the albums Live at the BBC (1994) and On Air – Live at the BBC Volume 2 (2013). The album includes BBC performances, studio outtakes and “informal demonstration” recordings of “Bad to Me“, an acoustic guitar duet by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, and “I’m in Love“, a piano demo by Lennon.

From RollingStone:

As of this morning, The Beatles Bootleg Recordings 1963 became available for $40 via iTunes. Many have speculated the rare material appeared simply so the band can re-establish copyrights for its recordings – European Union copyright laws stipulate that the Beatles and their label may own the material for a total of 70 years if they’re officially published.

The 59 rare songs capture the Beatles during a fruitful period, the year they released their debut album Please Please Me and With the Beatles. The harmonies are pristine and energetic, particularly on “A Taste of Honey” and “I Saw Her Standing There.” During “From Me to You,” the band abruptly stops recording and Paul McCartney says: “What happened? I just thought I heard you talking, actually.” Lennon responds: “Did you whistle? Heard a whistle.” After a bit of sarcastic whistling, McCartney demands, “Come on,” and the band resumes. They can also be heard bickering briefly on an early version of “One After 909.
