this thread reminded me to start rewatching the anthology series, like i've been meaning to for a long time. damn it's good, although i know it's less so during the last few episodes where it really glosses over some ugly things.

It's weird to think the anthology series was around the 30th anniversary of the band U2 is now at their 40th anniversary era.

So, the recent bump to this thread has sent me on a Beatles kick as well. Been listening to all the records. This music never gets old.

I've been putting together playlists of some of the early records that omit all the covers and re-insert the appropriate Past Masters tracks while preserving the official running orders as much as possible. Here's what I've come up with:

Please Please Me

1. I Saw Her Standing There
2. From Me To You
3. Thank You Girl
4. Misery
5. Ask Me Why

6. Please Please Me
7. Love Me Do
8. P.S. I Love You
9. Do You Want To Know A Secret
10. There's A Place

I think this works well - ISHST and FMTY is a great one-two punch at the top, There's A Place works well as a closer, and the whole is a leaner product without the covers(six were dropped). Though I do miss Twist And Shout. It's the only cover I miss from any of these early records.

With The Beatles

1. I Want To Hold Your Hand
2. It Won't Be Long
3. All I've Got To Do
4. All My Loving
5. Don't Bother Me
6. Little Child

7. She Loves You
8. I'll Get You
9. Hold Me Tight
10. I Wanna Be Your Man
11. Not A Second Time
12. This Boy

I know some won't like It Won't Be Long being stripped of its place as the opener, but I Want To Hold Your Hand is such a shot of energy that it didn't really fit anywhere else. She Loves You and it's b-side I'll Get You give the record a boost of adrenaline opening the second side, while This Boy is a quiet closer. This was always a difficult record for me to get through because of all the covers(again, six, nearly half the record), so getting rid of them and adding in the iconic singles improves it for me.

Beatles For Sale

1. No Reply
2. I'm A Loser
3. Baby's In Black
4. I'll Follow The Sun
5. Eight Days A Week

6. Every Little Thing
7. I Don't Want To Spoil The Party
8. She's A Woman
9. I Feel Fine
10. What You're Doing

I always regarded this as the weakest of the early records, because, again, the covers always took me out of it. 6 out of 14 again. But the original material is really solid, and I realize that i never gave it enough of a chance outside No Reply and Eight Days A Week. I think the placement of I Feel Fine gives the back end of the record an umph it was lacking, and its guitar fade-out flows really well into What You're Doing, which I think is a solid closer. She's A Woman isn't really that great of a song, so you could cut if you want, but I just put it there to bulk up the second side. I feel like I've re-discovered this record the most in doing this. Good stuff.

Hard Day's Night and Help have far fewer covers(HDN has none and Help only two) and less to add in(again, nothing for HDN, and only Yes It Is and I'm Down for Help, and I'm not sure either one is worth adding), so there doesn't seem to be much to do with them.

Beatles for Sale is underrated. That opening trio is stellar. Beef it up with some of the singles from the period and lop off a couple covers and you've got a sneaky great album.

namkcuR, I don't care for the premise of your project and I disagree with many of your opinions on the subject but I love your passion. Keep it up. Long live the Beatles...

I always thought Beatles For Sale was great.

I don't enjoy most of the covers either, but Rock and Roll Music was pretty well done. So was Please Mr. Postman.

I have not heard a Beatles record older than Rubber Soul.

Every couple years I go on a Beatles kick where I listen to almost nothing but The Beatles for a couple months and love every minute of it. It's been a couple years, so I have a feeling it's coming soon. I grew up on the early Beatles hits so they're the first songs I loved when I got older and got into them on my own. The first Beatles album I bought was "1" when I was 16 or 17. I wound up listening to the second half way more than the first half.

The last Beatles albums I heard in full were The White Album and Abbey Road. Ironically, they're my two favorites now.

Oddly enough, I probably listen to my custom Let It Be more than anything else now, or at least as much as The White Album. You throw in Don't Let Me Down and Ballad of John & Yoko (as well as a couple others) and it really stands with anything before it song-wise, even if the studio wizardry and innovation isn't there.

It is. It was also the beginning of the more serious tone the band took on. Lennon was influenced by Dylan at the time and that shown on the following albums, like Rubber Soul.
