About

From Anthology 3 liner notes:

The basic master of John Lennon’s Cry Baby Cry was captured at the end of a mid-evening recording session in Abbey Road on 16 July 1968. Five hours earlier this Anthology selection – Take 1 – was laid down, performed live at the studio, without overdubs. Although never used, it proved that the players were immediately on the right track.
