About

From Anthology 1 liner notes:

Seeking to complete Beatles For Sale, the Beatles scheduled the penultimate session for the album on Sunday 18 October 1964, having motored south from their Friday-night concert engagement in Hull and before returning north for a Monday booking in Edinburgh. In this one session the group started and finished Kansas City/Hey-Hey-Hey-Hey!, I’ll Follow The Sun, Everybody’s Trying To Be My Baby, Rock And Roll Music, Words Of Love and (not an album track but their next single) I Feel Fine, and they also re-made Mr. Moonlight and completed Eight Days A Week. All in just nine hours.

As the title suggests, Kansas City/Hey-Hey-Hey-Hey! – which the Beatles had performed in Kansas City only a month earlier – was a medley of two songs, Kansas City and Hey-Hey-Hey-Hey! Little Richard, who composed the latter, first coupled them in 1959. With Paul singing lead vocal, the Beatles captured the song in two takes – the master, on Beatles For Sale, was Take 1; Take 2 is issued here for the first time.
