You Know What To Do was a very early song-writing effort by George Harrison. He recorded it with the group on June 3, 1964; however, the song was never released. It can be heard on the 1995 collection, Anthology 1. Ringo was absent from the recording session due to tonsillitis, and the next morning the group was to depart on an international tour. A session drummer, Jimmy Nicol, was engaged to go on the tour in Ringo's place, and the recording session was converted to a kind of rehearsal session for the stand-in percussionist. With time left over in the session, each of the other three Beatles was given the chance to record a demo track. You Know What to Do was George's selection. Years later, George was asked about this demo, and he said he did not even remember making it, adding that he thought it was not a particularly good song. The second composition he put forward for the Beatles, this song was coolly received by producer George Martin and the others. He would not provide another song to the group until the Help! project a year later.
