Comments from Liner

These tapes were found by biographer GERRY MARSH in the possession of an ex-chauffer to the Beatles, ALF BICKNELL.

They were subsequently auctioned at SOTHEBY'S

Comments from Belmo's "NOT FOR SALE"

Historically this is an interesting piece. However, you will find it difficult to sit through even one listening session. The best thing on here is John's "If I Fell". It is also the only place you will find outtakes of It Won't Be Long. Please Mr. Postman version 1 may be real, but version 2 is probably the released version (albeit in horrid quality).
