anthology 2 Beatles Release Second Anthology: WODS Rewind

On this day in 1996, The Beatles released their second Anthology album. It contained a previously unreleased track called “Real Love,” which John Lennon had recorded himself but never finished.

The rest of the band added their parts to the original demo, which Lennon recorded in 1977 at his home using just his piano and an old tape recorder.

The song was originally meant for his work-in-progress stage play called The Ballad of John & Yoko. On its own, it sounds like the familiar Beatles charm with some shiny modern production. Officially, it’s the band’s last Top-40 single and the last credited “new” Beatles song.

Here’s the complete song, which sounds like it fits right in with the rest of the Beatles anthology, played over a montage of classic clips of the band working together in the studio.
