    Sure can!

    "Best, who was the band's drummer until shortly after their successful 1962 audition for EMI, is featured on tracks 10–12, 15–19, 21 and 22 on disc one. Track 22 is the original June 1962 EMI audition recording of "Love Me Do", which, after Ringo Starr replaced Best, would be re-recorded by the group four months later for their first single."
