  Beatles Rarities album
In it, several American Rarities tracks were incorporated, including Love Me Do with Ringo, the slightly longer And I Love Her and the composite versions of Penny Lane and I Am The Walrus.
Since The Beatles Collectors Items was available months before Rarities, it seems fair to assume that the source of this underground album was either someone with access to the project materials or else that Capitol used the bootleg for reference in compiling Rarities.
A second bootleg volume of Beatles "rarities" appeared in October 1980, presumably from the same source.

  The Beatles - John - Paul - George - Ringo
The Beatles were fond of Little Richard, and some of their songs — especially their early work — featured falsetto calls very similar to those Little Richard offered as punctuation in his own songs, notably Long Tall Sally.
In the Beatles' later music, the pace of the songs tends to be moderate, with more of the interest usually (but not always) coming from the melody and the orchestration than the rhythm.
When it came time to release the Beatles catalog on CD, the decision was made to use the original British versions of the albums, since those were the "way the Beatles originally intended them to be." The initial release of the first four CDs were of the original mono mixes.

 THE BEATLES discography, MP3 and reviews
The music of the Beatles was notable mainly for the songwriting partnership of Lennon/McCartney, which bucked the trend of bands going to songwriting houses for their material and helped to convince other bands to write their own songs.
The other aspect of the Beatles music that remained a constant throughout their carreer as a band is the wide range of influences and styles that they assimilated into their own.

 Past Masters, Vol. 1 - The Beatles - Song Listings
Since the Beatles had an enormous number of non-LP singles, some of their greatest hits -- from "I Want to Hold Your Hand" through "Hey Jude" -- would not be included on disc if Capitol simply served up straight reissues.
In fact, they took it one further, issuing two separate compilations of non-LP tracks, which is fairly appropriate since the Beatles released far more singles and EPs in the first two years of their recording career than they did in the last five.
Apart from the cuts that are merely rarities, this is a near-perfect compilation that captures the energy and spirit of the Beatles' early years.
