Something by The Beatles – ****

First released: 1969

The best tune that Lennon-McCartney never wrote. Just ask Frank Sinatra. George’s shining hour on "Abbey Road" and accompanying single was later performed live at "The Concert for Bangla Desh" as one of its encores. This version is included on 2009’s "Let it Roll – Songs by George Harrison".

The studio version also appears on "The Best of George Harrison". It's also on "1967-1970" and 2000's "1". A demo version appears on "Anthology 3" in 1996. It is also used for 2006's "Love".

Also performed on George Harrison’s "Live in Japan" album and tour in 1991. Paul does a tribute version that appears on 2002/3's "Back in the US/World" and on 2009’s "Good Evening New York City".
