In May of 1972, TMoQ released another batch of mid to late1963 BBC radio recordings but this time, with just three exceptions, all songs the Beatles had recorded for their official albums. 

Outakes 1: Side 1: Do You Want To Know A Secret / You Really Got A Hold On Me / Hippy Hippy Shake / Misery / Money / Till There Was You
Side 2: From Me To You / Roll Over Beethoven / Love Me Do / Kansas City/Hey-Hey-Hey-Hey / Long Tall Sally / Please Please Me

Outakes 2: Side 1:  She Loves You / Words Of Love / Devil In Her Heart / Anna / Money / There’s A Place
Side 2: Honey Don’t / Chains / I Saw Her Standing There / Sure To Fall / Lucille / Boys

Exactly one year later, Contraband released their own versions:

Beatles Studio Sessions Vol one

Beatles Studio Sessions 1 lbl

Beatles studio sessions 1 KK

Reissue on King Kong.

Later re-pressings used the usual mix of generic bearing that did not give the album’s title. In late 1979 or early 1980, the Japanese label Black Discs released these records on matrix ZAP-1061 / 1062, using fake labels bearing a Japanese Society for Rights of Authors, Composers and Publishers (JASRAC) number :

Contraband re-packaged the material in 1975 (confirmed by the cover image “borrowed” from Roy Carr & Tony Tyler’s book) as this quite attractive looking package on Instant Analysis or King Kong:

In August of 1975, bootleg collector John Wizardo decided to fit 20 of these songs onto a single album: WRMB 326: WORDS OF LOVE – STUDIO OUTTAKE RECORDINGS 1962 -4

Audio quality was a notch or two below that of the TMoQ and CBM versions.

The colored wax/PVC version listed in vinylegs.com (and what a fantastic resource it is for Beatles vinyl bootlegs!) for this title is likely the later repressing in the center hole cut out sleeve on Strawberry Records Inc. and not of an original Wizardo (first) pressing.

In September of 1976, another release of this material appeared, purporting to be on the Wizardo label as well but looking quite dubious on black World Records labels (a confirmed Ken job): WRMB 392: THE LAST BEETLE RECORD
