I saw some of the remasters when I was at Best Buy tonight. I wanted to pick up Rubber Soul and Revolver (my favs) but those were the only two they were sold out of.

I'll get to them eventually.

4. Let It Be
5. Magical Mystery Tour
6. Revolver
7. Abbey Road
8. Past Masters
9. Rubber Soul
10. Sgt Pepper's
11. Beatles For Sale
12. Yellow Submarine
13. With the Beatles

The trio of Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight/The End is definitely its own medley and shouldn't be considered part of the other one. That wiki entry is bogus.

However, You Never Give Me Your Money does segue into Sun King, albeit barely, so I can understand that one a bit more.

AH! that´s great news for those that got a few of these cds.
CONGRATULATIONS! Specillay the lucky guy whos girlfriend bought him a cool
cd when he was at work.
THAT is a very cool and very loving girlfriend. Big Cheers mate!

I personally bought the entire Beatles collection in vinyl back in the late 70´s and early eighties. I was pretty young back then and just getting into music and collecting.
I just had to buy the entire Beatles back then. I still have them vinyls, but I would not
mind paying a few extra $$ now for this CD-box edition. It will be worth it.

There is no "best" record of the Beatles.
It´s like U2 ...or Led Zeppelin... or whatever band your into. You just gotta
have them all. Every single album is a masterpiece in music.
Its history....

Here is a thought. Check out the Rolling Stones magazine Top 100 albums

^ cheers max, she is a very very good girl, I love her very much

I notice Thriller is at 20 on that list, and it is the highest selling album of all time, more than double 2nd place. That is the thing about the Beatles: their quality transcends their popularity. That is, they were always mega, but never just a fad band.

I picked up Abbey Road, Let It Be, Magical Mystery Tour, Revolver, Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band and White Album today. I'm debating picking up Rubber Soul and Yellow Submarine later this week.

I'll get them all eventually, just isn't in the budget since school books costed more than I expected. I originally planned on buying the Stereo Box Set.

I'm glad we agree, I'm just saying the general consensus has been that it's all one big medley.

And if you Google "You Never Give Me Your Money medley" or any variation, there are a lot of people who seem to think it's the beginning of the whole thing. I still say it "ends" properly, and Sun King comes in so softly and slowly it's hard to consider that much of a segue. And again, at 4:00 it certainly stands apart from the others as being more of a complete song.

Let's not get hung up on these little details, does anyone have a response to my issues with Macca's singing? Surely I'm not the only one? Cori, you're sensitive to these kinds of vocal issues. What say you?

McCartney's vocals in "the medley" (which we're going to continue calling it for the sake of continuity) never bothered me too much, save for the AWAAAAAKE part you mentioned. Definitely reaching for something he didn't have. But "Bathroom Window" was a good take, including the "kneeeeewww the answer" bit.

"You Never Give Me Your Money" is probably considered part of it since it's called back up in "Carry That Weight."

Furthermore, yeah "Her Majesty" was supposed to be between "Mean Mr. Mustard" and "Polythene Pam," but tacking it to the end of the album was stupid and cheapens the finality of "The End," which would have been a pitch perfect note for them to go out on.


It does sound even worse in its original intended place, though.

My dad lent me those on DVD a year ago. Definitely an interest watch, but hardly the final word on everything Beatles.

I'd like to go through the book again when I get a chance.

I doubt I'd find the final word on them via any one TV special.

I saw it years ago, just wanted to see it again.

No he didn't. He just said something about my blind McCartney hate, and about the structure of the medley. Nothing about the vocals.

I'm not going to argue about Bathroom Window. It's in my Top 5 Macca songs, and I think it's the second best thing on the album after I Want You (She's So Heavy). And I love the part you mentioned as well. It's when he tries to sound too ragged and rock and roll that there's a problem. Even the vocal on Helter Skelter is forced.

Any comment on the Money vocals? Especially the Al Jolson-esque part. I wonder if he was in blackface when he recorded it.

Agreed on both counts. It would totally ruin the transition between Mustard and Pam, and yet at the end it's a bit of a goof. But perhaps it's better they ended on a note of levity, I don't know. Think of it as a bonus track.
