"For Sale" Studio Outtakes

After the North American tour, The Beatles headed back to the UK and to EMI studios to continue working on the follow up LP to the first film soundtrack. The LP would eventually be titled "Beatles For Sale".
On September 30 1964 from Studio 2, we have two outtakes from this session. The first outtake being a completely different arrangement of "What You're Doing" (take 11) (Lennon/McCartney) which heavily features a 12 string Rickenbaker and a key change in the middle before reverting back to it's original key. We also have a different, faster version of "No Reply" (take 2) and also (Lennon/McCartney).
"What You're Doing" is in stereo and can be found on the John Barrett tapes entitled "Turn Me On Dead Man" from bootleg CD. The take 2 version of "No Reply" is commercially available on the 3LP/2CD Apple "Anthology 1" recordings.
