The Beatles Collaborations etc.
(in Date Order)

This index will eventually include every significant Beatle contribution made with other artists and to other artists.
(It will NOT include every artist who has ever released a version of a Beatles song !)
Entries are restricted to the first appearance of an original written contribution, or to a Beatle appearance on another artistes production.

It is also within this section that I will place works that I couldn't decide where else to put them !

As a rule the Beatles did NOT write songs specifically for other artists to perform, almost all songs were written as potential tracks for The Beatles. But if requests came in for material, they would simply pick something out from the "spare" songs. Of course, most requests would be turned down, but it was almost impossible to refuse Brian Epstein himself. Brian, appreciating the hit writing capabilities of his star performers, would often ask for something to be tailored to launch many of his new signings. In this way he arranged for Lennon-McCartney to supply songs for the initial recordings of: Billy J. Kramer, Tommy Quickly, The Fourmost, and Cilla Black.

When available, clicking on the title will link to a web page showing full detail .... including scans, tracklistings and any pertinent information.
I am not entering the information in any particular order, but will probably enter related items at the same time.
