Single release: 'Baby It's
You';'I'll Follow The Sun'; 'Devil In Her Heart';'Boys'. Parlophone/Apple
The coupling of Solider Of Love backed with Ill Be On My Way
was EMIs initial choice for the 27th official Beatles
single, to be taken from the Live At The BBC album,
but the idea was dropped in favour of Capitol records suggestion; Baby Its
Athough retailing at a standard single price, Baby Its You
was marketed as a four track EP (including three additional BBC recordings) with
packaging to match the EP designs of the 1960s.
The cover photo showed the Beatles walking away from the
Paris Theatre Studio, as seen on the back of the BBC album, and there were also
new sleeve notes from BBC producer Kevin Howlett.
Each Beatle was represented by a lead vocal performance
and the three extra titles, I'll Follow The Sun, Devil In Her
Heart, and Boys, were all previously unissued BBC recordings.
The delay between the single and the corresponding Live At The
BBC album release was put down to choosing suitable recordings for
the bonus tracks, compounded by the search for relevant footage for use in the
accompanying promotional video, which was compiled by Apple Productions, the
company currently working on the Beatles' Anthology
The single entered the British charts at Number 7 on 1st April.
