Baby It’s You by The Beatles – **

First released: 1963

I’ve never been terribly fond of this early Beatles track from "Please Please Me". Strangely enough, The Beatles compositions were actually stronger on their debut album than their covers, and that’s saying a lot. This David/Williams/Bacharach tune finally became a single in 1994 from The Beatles "Live at the BBC" album. I would have preferred "Soldier of Love". The Shirelles originally recorded it in 1962.

In the US, it was on "Introducing The Beatles", "Jolly What! The Beatles and Frank Ifield on Stage", "The Beatles vs. The Four Seasons", "The Early Beatles" and on 2006’s "The Capitol Albums, Vol. 2".
