Be My Baby by John Lennon – ***

First released: 1975

First released on the quasi-legal Roots compilation that spurred Apple to release Lennon’s "Rock ‘n’ Roll" album in a hurry. For some reason, this was left off of the Apple version and not officially released until 1998’s "The John Lennon Anthology" and is STILL not on the CD version of "Rock ‘n’ Roll", despite "Angel Baby" being added as a bonus track.

The song was penned by Phil Spector and originally a hit for The Ronettes in 1963.
