About

From Anthology 1 liner notes:

In Paris for a concert season at the Olympia, music-hall, the Beatles taped the basic track and all outtakes of Can’t Buy Me Love at the end of a session at EMI’s Pathé Marconi studios in which they also recorded German-language versions of I Want To Hold Your Hand and She Loves You. Vocal and guitar overdubs were added to the master, Take 4, back at Abbey Road on 25 February, but the previously unreleased Paris recording of Can’t Buy Me Love presented here, all vocals and instruments live, is Take 2 (with the main guitar solo “flown in” from Take 1). Paul’s vocal style was more bluesy in these first two rough takes – though it should be recognised that he was not attempting a definitive vocal track – while John and George’s backing vocal idea was later dispensed with too.
