Please Please Me track listing
February 11, 1963: Then John, Paul and George shared the vocals on 'Chains', a minor, contemporary hit for the Cookies, penned by the Brill Building team of Gerry Goffin and Carole King, very inspirational to John Lennon and Paul McCartney in their formative songwriting years. This was captured in four takes although the best was take one and again it was left to be given a faded ending at the remix stage.
