Love the energy of the Ringo track but It Won't Be long is much too strong for it.
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

I don't dislike it—really, there are very few Beatles songs I actually dislike—but IWBYM doesn't stand out in my consciousness.

There's actual passion and energy in the performance of It Won't Be Long.

I certainly like it, doesn't seem like an album winner though. I wanna be your man, though, there's like 4 bands who do it better.

As I recall, there was a lot of discussion about how it was very slim pickings on this album.

Their best initial material was definitely frontloaded to Please Please Me. Which is understandable given that most bands were a one- or two-hit-wonder. It's hard to appreciate how much the industry saw rock n roll as a fad that would pass at any given moment.
