"You've Got To Hide Your Love Away" Outtakes
In between this in the afternoon, a new Lennon/McCartney original was recorded. Mainly written and sung by John, this was used on the "Help!" soundtrack: "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away". Two takes have been commercially released: takes 1 and 5. Both can be found on the Apple 3-LP/2-CD "Anthology 1" release.
Take 1 is merely a false start with John counting in the song and Paul who has "broken a glass". Take 5 has a nice performance with vocals but without overdubs. The commercially released version used take 9 as the basic take for overdubs including an outside musician who played flute - Johnnie Scott. Also noted is the use of a Framus acoustic 12-string by John for this song.
The other new song recorded on this day plus a soundtrack song will be featured in the next entry and wasn't released nor heard by the public for almost 20 years. Stay tuned.
In the meantime, here's takes 1 and 5 brought to you by youtube for your enjoyment:
