"I'm A Loser/Mr. Moonlight" session.

The Beatles entered studio two at EMI (Abbey Road) in order to record a couple of songs for their upcoming fourth LP eventually titled "Beatles For Sale" in the UK. This evening session outtakes have been available from various sources.
The first song attempted was the Lennon/McCartney original "I'm A Loser" mainly written and sung by John with assistance from Paul. The first two takes can be found on the bootleg CD "Unsurpassed Masters Volume 6"; the next take (3) can be found on the next volume of "Unsurpassed Masters Volume 7". Finally, the next four takes of the song can be found on the bootleg CD "The Ultimate Collection, Volume 3, Studio Sessions 1964".
The next song attempted in the studio by The Beatles was a cover version of the Dr. Feelgood song "Mr. Moonlight". The intro and outtake has been commercially released on the Apple 3-LP/2-CD "Anthology 1" (in mono) although there is a stereo version of the song which can be found on the bootleg "Turn Me On Deadman".
