Unreleased 1963 Beatles Demo Up for Sale on eBay

A rare, unreleased demo of The Beatles song “What Goes On” is currently on sale through a listing on eBay, via the website Parlogram. This 1963 demo version predates the Beatles recording sung by Ringo Starr and released on the Rubber Soul album in 1965. This earlier version was sung by John Lennon, who wrote the song, and features Lennon singing different lyrics. According to an auction house spokesman, the demo also has Lennon on acoustic guitar and Paul McCartney on harmony on the chorus; a few piano notes are audible in the background toward the end of the track. An excerpt of the recording can be heard on the eBay auction listing. The sale will end Oct. 1. http://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/rock/7973608/beatles-auction-what-goes-on-unreleased
