"Less than four months after the release of the first new Beatles song in 25 years, the world got a follow-up to “Free as a Bird.” On March 4, 1996, they released “Real Love,” in which Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr once again overdubbed themselves onto an old John Lennon demo. The song had already been heard the previous November, when it aired at the end of the second episode of the Anthology documentary. One of Lennon’s early takes on "Real Love," recorded with just guitar and vocals, had also appeared on the soundtrack of the Imagine: John Lennon documentary. The Beatles’ version, which opened Anthology 2 when it arrived two weeks later, was built off a different Lennon recording captured at the piano with a small cassette recorder."

“Real Love” hit No. 11 in the U.S. and, despite being left out of rotation by BBC Radio 1, reached No. 4 in the U.K. This would be the last song credited to the Beatles. When Anthology 3 was released in October 1996, they decided not to record anything new."

Real Love 1996 UK limited edition 2-track 7" vinyl single also featuring an exclusive previously unreleased version of Baby's In Black recorded live at the Hollywood Bowl in August 1965, paper picture sleeve.
