COMMENTS The second ‘new’ Beatles recording made for the Anthology project, ‘Real Love’ was based on a piano and vocal demo recorded by John Lennon in the late 1970s, and completed a year after ‘Free As A Bird’.

The song began variously as ‘Real Life’ and ‘Real Love’. Lennon recorded a number of demos of both songs, on piano and acoustic guitar, the lyrics to which varied each time.
At least six takes of ‘Real Love’ were recorded by Lennon in 1979, one of which was eventually used as the basis for The Beatles’ single.
John Lennon’s original demo was recorded on a piano, with a drum machine accompaniment, at his home in the Dakota building, New York City. A cassette containing the song was given to Paul McCartney by Yoko Ono in January 1994, along with ‘Free As A Bird’, ‘Grow Old With Me’, and ‘Now And Then’.
‘Real Love’ debuted at number four in the UK singles chart on 16 March 1996, selling 50,000 copies in its first week.

The picture cover features a color picture on the front.
The rear of the inlay follows the design theme of the Anthology albums.

The cassette cases were clear plastic at the front and around the spine area, and black plastic at the rear.
Shell is black with silver on-body printing. The window is flat with tape counters below.
Issued in a standard case with a single-sided fold-out j-card inlay.
Some copies may include a red hype sticker with black text on the cassette case: 'Contains exclusive, unreleased versions of "Baby's In Black".
