From Early Beatles Songs:
For a while in early-1960, Lennon was sharing a flat on Gambier Terrace with Stu Sutcliffe. Harrison would also move in briefly, making the premises the informal HQ for the Beatles. McCartney continued living at Forthlin Road however, and at least eight new songs are preserved from this crucial period [, including “Well Darling“].
[“Well Darling” is] A fairly uninspired slow blues, in which Lennon and McCartney harmonise the title phrase several times before McCartney takes the vocal stage (thereby indicating that the song is his). A rudimentary bass is prominent, and this would presumably be Stu Sutcliffe rather than McCartney. The title, “Well, Darling”, is of course an educated guess, and is, incidentally, the opening phrase of “You’ll Be Mine”, also recorded at the time.
