Rare Alternate "Pride And Joy" On Beatles Video
« Thread started on: Jan 30th, 2013, 6:28pm »
In the first pressings of "The Beatles: The First U.S. Visit", Murray The K plays a rare alternate version of "Pride And Joy." The backing track is identical to the released version, but THIS one has an alternate vocal with alternate lyrics! Does ANYONE have the complete version of this rarity?

I don't. But I remember reading how the Beatles really loved Marvin's music. Oddly, whenever they mention the Beatles' influences, they hardly mention Marvin when really his music influenced not only the Fab Four but also the Rolling Stones, the Who and others. Pete Townshend idolized him. But yeah I remember reading when the Beatles arrived to the U.S. and was interviewed for a radio station, they actually requested Marvin's "Pride & Joy" to be played.
