More highlights off the Beatles for Sale LP, another repackaging of existing material, but also highlighting their exquisite Buddy Holly cover “Words of Love,” plus “Baby’s in Black,” which became part of their concert set, and Paul McCartney’s exquisite “I’ll Follow the Sun,” probably his most succinct and beautiful ballad, note for note and second for second.
Songs Lennon/McCartney except noted.
“I’ll Follow the Sun”
“Baby’s in Black”
“Words of Love” (Buddy Holly)
“I Don’t Want to Spoil the Party”
