Can't Buy Me Love (take 4) RS1
RS1 was mixed 10 March 1964 with additional overdubs (vocals by Paul and guitar by George)
from 25 February 1964. It's reasonable to believe
that there is actually at least a few seconds of audio following take 4 on the reel which is not available.

Almost this entire session can be heard twice from an off-line recording on The Complete Control Room Monitor Mixes (Vols. 1 and 2) . The second set from Vol. 2 (disc 2, tracks 16-18) was used for the mix here. The first set, on Vol. 1 (disc 2, tracks 1-3), is merely someone trying to edit out the gaps in the second set and is in less quality than the second set. It is not a different recording.

I only discovered this once I began assembling this page. I haven't researched further but I suspect some of the other songs presented multiple times on The Complete Control Room Monitor Mixes (Vols. 1 and 2) might be similar. Sounds like some more bootlegger trickery.
