The Beatles - Raunchy
Written by Justis-Manker. Released on The Beatles Anthology Outtakes Vol. 3
This is the song which brought George into the group. Paul remembered how he introduced George to John, “On a late night bus, I said ‘Go on George, get your guitar out.’ And he played it - note perfect. ‘Raunchy’. You’re in.”
The song was played in live during the pre-Beatles year from 1958 - 1960. In the jam session at George’s Friar Park Studios, during the reunion in 1994, they played this song along with two other songs (“Thinking Of Linking” and “Blue Moon Of Kentucky”) with Paul and George on guitar and Ringo on drums.
