It's For You IP: 184.108.40.206 Posted on June 11, 2016 at 10:35:42 PM by ageing ted
I do like a challenge, Guv. If one were to consult thebeatlesrarity.com site I recently recommended, one would find the following- "Paul McCartney cut his own demo of the song on June 3, 1964 to give to Cilla and producer George Martin. At present, this demo has not surfaced among collectors."
Consulting 'Way Beyond Compare' by John C. Winn tells us that Cilla made her first attempt at the song on April 10, 1964. At the June 3 Beatle session, John and George also recorded demos that subsequently appeared on Anthology 1, but Paul's 'It's For You' didn't make the grade it seems. Cilla cut the final version on July 2 and the rest is history.
Bizarre consolation prize - YouTube contains a 1964 demo of 'It's For You' by a certain Lita Roza from Liverpool who is famous for her UK #1 (How Much Is) That Doggie In The Window?' Very faithful to Cilla's take.
