"Sessions" was a compilation album by
The Beatles, planned by EMIin 1985, but never released because of objections by the surviving Beatles themselves. cite web | title = The Road to Sessions | url = http://www.whizzo.ca/beatles/sessions.html | accessdate = 2008-03-08 |date=2007-05-07 | publisher = Paul Maclauchlan] The album consisted of thirteen finished, but unreleased, Beatles songs, all of which would eventually turn up on the "Anthology" albums (except "Christmas Time is Here Again"). A single, "Leave My Kitten Alone" (with an alternate version of " Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da", which was not to appear on the album, as its B-side) was also planned; but it, too, was also unissued.
"Come and Get It" was a demo recording performed by McCartney solo and eventually recorded by the group
Badfinger. Harrison would re-record "Not Guilty" on his album "George Harrison" in 1979. "How Do You Do It" had been recorded for a possible early single at the request of George Martin, but scrapped in favour of "Please Please Me". The album also included a Christmas single, finally ending up as the flip side of " Free as a Bird", issued with " Anthology 1".
It should be noted that the tracks (both here and on the Anthology releases) are altered from their original states. For example, "Not Guilty" is completely re-edited, removing around a minute of the song. The biggest casualty was arguably "What's The New Mary Jane", which was drastically remixed to make the song more musical and less of a discordant "Revolution 9"-type track.
