"You Know My Name (Look Up the Number)" was issued as the B-side of The Beatles' single "Let It Be" on 6 March 1970. Although first issued with their next to last single, the song dates back to around the release of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. It was recorded in five sections without vocals in May and June of 1967. In April, 1969, John Lennon and Paul McCartney laid down the vocal tracks and added additional sound effects. The original single version of the song is found on Past Masters, Volume Two, the extended version on Anthology 2.

Although recorded by John Lennon and Paul McCartney and eventually released as a Beatles song, "You Know My Name (Look Up the Number)" was nearly released as the A-Side of a John Lennon solo single. Lennon, frustrated by the fact that the Beatles did not seem interested in releasing the song, arranged for Apple to issue it as a Plastic Ono Band single, backed with "What's the New Mary Jane", another unorthodox Beatles recording that had been sitting in the vaults collecting dust. ("What's the New Mary Jane" was not officially issued by the Beatles until the release of Anthology 3 in 1996, although the song did appear on numerous Beatles bootleg records.) The single was given an Apple catalog number (Apple 1002) and British release date (December 5, 1969), but the the record was cancelled before it was issued. Three months later, the song saw the light of day as the B-Side to the Beatles' single, "Let It Be." A careful check of the runnout groove of original British pressings of the "Let It Be" single will show the original Plastic Ono Band single catolog number etched, and then scratched out, into the vinyl surface. The Plastic Ono Band is the band John Lennon formed after he left the Beatles. ...


"You Know My Name (Look Up the Number)," was the last Beatles song to be included on an album, issued on 12" vinyl for the first time on Rarities (which had been included in the British and American boxed set, The Beatles Collection in 1978, and released separately as an album in the United Kingdom in 1979). The first stand-alone American album to feature "You Know My Name (Look Up the Number)" was The Beatles Rarities, which was released in 1980. (The Harrison-authored "The Inner Light" also made its first British and American album appearances on the same discs as "You Know My Name (Look Up the Number)", but it had previously been released on Por Siempre Beatles, a compilation album available only in Spain.) "You Know My Name (Look Up the Number)" is available on CD on Past Masters: Volume Two. The Inner Light is an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation, from its fifth season. ... Por Siempre Beatles is a Beatles compilation album released in Spain in 1971 (EMI/Odeon J060-04973). ...
