Default Sole Instrumental Track

I believe there is only one Beatle track in existence which is 100% instrumental.

Can you tell me the name of it??

Isn't there a choir in the background singing like chanting monks on a hillside?

12 Bar is a better answer than
Flying because Flying has background singing in it (la,la, la ,la laaaaaaa...)

Isn't that a George Martin tune? If not, I'll be able to add another list of instrumentals, pepperland, ......

I know that, but isn't Ringo's Theme just a George Martin production of that John/Paul song for the movie. It is not as if John and Paul wrote it like that.

No FPSHOT, it's a lennon/mccartney original, and yes, it is called "Ringo's Theme" in the movie. But the song and melody is "This Boy". The "pepperland, and sea of holes,..." Is 100% George Martin, and therefore not "Beatles" material.

The 4 instrumentals on the US Hard Day's Night are the George Martin Orchestra.
Ken Thorne and His Orchestra did the instrumentals/muzak in Help!

No FSPSHOT, that instumental is the Beatles; it could possibly be an unused backing take from "This Boy". But it is definitely them playing it.

I'm sure it is the George Martin Orchestra,for the following reasons:

*EVERY issue of "Ringo's Theme" has been credited to the GMO,including a US 45(And I Love Her (Instrumental)/Ringo's Theme),both the UA and Capitol versions of AHDN,the US and UK Off The beatle Track,and the Parlophone EP Music From The Film A HArd Day's Night.

*Considering how upright in Beatles matters George Martin has always been,why would he take a unused Beatles performance and issue it under his own name?

*I have an mp3 of Ringo's Theme I'm currently playing--a Beatles 1963 era track would not have had all the strings etc.on Ringo's Theme.

*49 seconds longer than This Boy. Yes,you had 4 track in 63/64 but the experimenting with speeding up and slowing down recording,etc. did not happen until the Revolver era,when the Beatles wanted to play with the sounds.

All 4 AHDN instrumental composing credits are L/McC,as are From Me To You Fantasy,Another Hard Day's Night,and the You Can't Do That part of TheBitter End on the Help! soundtrack.
All of the AHDN muzak is George martin's Orchestra, and the Help! muzak Ken Thorne Orchestra.
All the Lennon/McCartney credit means is they composed the melody used.
