Outtake of the Week: "That Means A Lot" (Re-make)

The version of "That Means A Lot" heard on The Beatles Anthology was the Beatles' first "best" attempt and they tried to better it through recording a re-make. Take 20 features guitar riffs in the style of "Another Girl" and take 24 features an entirely different riff, still in keeping with the idea that the song could become a mid-tempo rocker with a 4/4 beat. After this studio session, the Beatles gave up on the song, offering it instead to their friend P.J. Proby.

Next installment: June 6
