Beatles rarity of the week

Never heard this version of “Can’t Buy Me Love” before!

This week on the BROW I’m offering up an interesting skiffle-country hoe-down arrangement of “Can’t Buy Me Love” performed by Paul and his band on the first night of taping. This was one of the tracks that was edited out of the television broadcast, so whether you caught Up Close or not, you’ve likely not heard this Beatles classic performed quite like this.

Paul McCartney – Can’t Buy Me Love


Extra info: Paul also performed this arrangement of “Can’t Buy Me Love” during a soundcheck in Berlin for a September 3, 1993 gig. This performance was recorded and featured on Paul’s syndicated radio program Oobu Joobu on June 4, 1995.
