3 stars The Past Master volumes released Beatles tracks not featured on any of their studio albums - This is the first volume featuring rarities up to 1965. The tracks are mostly singles and B-sides including such legendary tracks as 'Love Me Do', 'From Me To You', 'I Feel Fine' and many more besides, as well as the German re-recordings of 'I Want To Hold Your Hand' and 'She Loves You'. As it has been said already, this is mostly for a Beatles collection or for historical relevance. But apart from the tracks mentioned above, other highlights include Lennon on 'I Call Your Name' and the beautiful 12/8 rhythm on 'This Boy', Paul McCartney doing his Little Richard impersonation on 'Long Tall Sally' and the cover version of 'Bad Boy'. All these numbers are important to the Beatles history.
