Bad Boy by The Beatles – ***

First released: 1965

The US needed another track for their "Beatles VI" album, so The Beatles duly went in to record yet another cover version to appease the yanks and turned to Larry Williams again. Strangely, they could have included "I’m Down" on "Beatles VI" and then The Beatles wouldn’t have had to rush record this. In any case, The Beatles themselves didn’t seem to think too much of this, as it was thrown onto the compilation "A Collection of Beatle Oldies" in the UK. It first appeared on CD on "Past Masters, Volume One" in 1988. Later, it was on "The Capitol Albums, Vol. 2" in 2006.
