Cry for a Shadow

(Working title: "Beatle Bop")

When The Beatles were only a backing group for Tony Sheridan, they got a couple of shots at recording, such as John's nice version of Ain't She Sweet and this Lennon-Harrison instrumental jam. Based on the background wailing, John and George seem to really be getting into it, though sadly, not much of that elation is shared with the listener. Even the weakest vocal on their Decca audition tape has more to offer than this oddity.
