i don't have that album, but let it be is one of my all-time favourites, not just my fav beatles song.

"Drive My Car" is the low point of Rubber Soul, for me. Other than that, I would agree that it's a perfect pop record.

"Drive My Car" is one of my favorites from Rubber Soul. It really pisses me off that it was left off the U.S. version of the album, actually. Definitely in my top 3 Beatles albums, along with Abbey Road and Revolver.

My favorite Beatles album seems to change all the time, which is a testament to the band, obviously. Rubber Soul and Revolver always figure prominently in any lists I make, though.

I like Drive My Car as well, but I'm the opposite about the U.S. version. I actually think the beginning of it works better with I've Just Seen A Face; it goes better with the other material.

Okay, Best Buy fliers went out, this morning. Apparently "select stores" will be receiving mono boxes, along with..."all New Jersey locations." I have NO idea what the fuck that is about, but if anybody is gonsta be in New Jersey, on Tuesday, please let me know. I'm willing to bet that we can figure out something.

That's fair, just wondering. I may pick up Naked when I get the rest of the albums as well.

I thought that The White Album, Abbey Road, and Let It Be came out of the same recording sessions?

No, three separate sessions. There are Abbey Road tracks (and maybe some from Let It Be) that had been demoed during The White Album sessions, but that's it.

The Let It Be sessions, which occurred in the middle, were totally filmed by a camera crew, and caused a lot of tension. The subsequent recording of Abbey Road (after the Let It Be Sessions were shelved), was an attempt to do it the normal way, and went much more smoothly. After that was released, the Let It Be project was resurrected, and Phil Spector's remixing (or embellishment) of the original recordings are what finally caused McCartney to leave the band.

There's a great book called Beatlesongs that goes really in-depth with the origins of songs, who wrote what, how it was recorded, the instrumentation, etc. Also shit about the artwork, and not only does it use interviews from the band members and the studio crew, but there are a lot of other musicians commenting on the stuff as well.

They have used copies for $2 on Amazon. You read that thing (and you will plow through it, believe me), and you'll be a bona fide Beatles expert.

Interesting. I knew that Let It Be happened in the middle and was shelved, but didn't know the rest. I'll definitely pick up that book then, thanks.

I just....fuck, the band is so fucking fascinating to me. Their formation, their Hamburg days, their initial success, their transformation and their break-up....I don't know, I could read or watch docs about it endlessly.
