Re-discovered it when I did my custom White Album the other day. I like it enough that I didn't cut it. Good stuff, but wouldn't be in my top 10 from the album.

I love the guitar sound here more than on any other Beatles LP. Nice to see And Your Bird Can Sing get a mention, such an underrated track that's as catchy as any of their big singles.

Yeah, great tune, though apparently John himself didn't think it was that great.

Question for anyone who has an opinion...am I correct in thinking that Lady Madonna and The Inner Light are orphans insofar as they don't really belong to any LP the way most of the other Past Masters stuff does? They were recorded, I believe, well after the MMT stuff but months before work on the White Album got underway. I feel like these two tracks - Lady Madonna in particular - would be most at home on the White Album, but not really sure. Opinions welcome.

John was on fire for Revolver. As good as most of the other songs are, his writing is on a whole other level.

Got to Get You Into My Life is another underrated gem on Revolver.

I'm Only Sleeping might be my favorite thing on there and cutting it(and And Your Bird Can Sing and Doctor Robert) might have been the worst offense Capital ever made on their Frankenstein U.S. LPs.

You're talking about an album that has Helter Skelter, Julia, Revolution 9, Rocky Raccoon. Not many songs would sound out of place. Lady Madonna is post-psychedelic and definitely seems cut from a similar cloth as a lot of the material on there.

George seemed to have grown out of the sitar by the time of The White Album, so maybe that's one exception.

That's always been my favorite on the album. Is that the first song to have a backwards guitar solo?

I like that song.

Was that around the same time they recorded Hey Bulldog? I love that song. An underrated gem that never quite got the attention of other one-off songs from that time.

Yeah, looks like they were recorded in the same week in February 1968.

Speaking of Bulldog, I just listened to those four Yellow Submarine tracks last night for the first time in ages(really, other than Bulldog I'd barely listened to the others ever). Three out of four of them are nothing less than hidden treasures.

Everyone knows Bulldog, but Only A Northern Star has such a gorgeous melody, and It's All Too Much might be the most psychedelic non-sitar-related thing, aside from Blue Jay Way, Harrison ever wrote as a Beatle. Good shit. Really dig these tracks.

McCartney's All Together Now, on the other hand, might be the weakest Beatles track in existence.

Listened to these as part of my re-working of Sgt. Pepper/MMT. Will post in a bit.

Oh gosh! I had completely forgotten Hey Bulldog and Lady Madonna! I used to have those two in my White Album playlist. Gonna have to go rethink a couple things. Doesn't help that I rarely listen to music on my computer anymore I suppose....
