If You've Got Trouble

Album: Anthology 2 (1996)


  • Although this was recorded in early 1965, The Beatles weren't content with it and decided not to release it. It was then released in 1996 on Anthology.
  • This song was originally intended for the Help! album as Ringo's vocal track, The Beatles went with "Act Naturally" instead. >>

  • Carl from Apg, MdNot a bad song, despite being unreleased in 1965.
    "Act Naturally" studio recording was done later, in June of that year.
  • George from Belleville, NjI think this is a cool rock song.It moves,it has a solid rock beat and nice lead guitar.I agree with Freddy from Miami,Ringo rocks.He has a rugged style of singing that seems to match well with the song.
  • Freddy from Miami, FlAm i the only one who loves this song? Ringo rocks.
  • Green Puppet from Calgary, CanadaI like the Beatles but I agree with not putting on the album. The melody was under par.
