Yes It Is by The Beatles – ***

First released: 1965

When I first heard this, I wasn’t too crazy about it. It was also one of those songs that Capitol in the US decided to overdo it on the echo, making it sound like The Beatles recorded it at the bottom of a well. The UK version is much better, sounding quite a bit like "This Boy". It was the b-side to "Ticket to Ride" and included on the US "Beatles VI" album. For the UK, it was unavailable on album until "Beatles Rarities" in 1980 and later it was released on "Past Masters, Volume One" when issued to CD in 1988. A demo version appears on "Anthology 2" in 1996.
