Not sure if hitting people with one of Macca's worst songs that quickly is the best idea.

First one, probably not. Though you do get Free As A Bird, which I'm convinced would be a classic had it been released during the glory days. Vol.2 is a no-brainer, really. You'll have a lot of fun with it. And you can get it used on Amazon for under $10.

I have to say that Vol. 1, while not on the level of the other two, is fascinating from an historical point of view. Listening to their beginnings as far back as 1958, and seeing where they ended up, it really is an incredible journey they took.

Plus, there are some really great songs there, like the original version of One After 909.

As far as revisiting Sgt. Pepper's, adding Strawberry Fields Forever, Penny Lane, and Only A Northern Song certainly would have put a different twist on it. I'll have to see what I come up with; I like laz's take, although I can't bring myself to move Lucy.

I've been more obsessed lately digging into Let It Be and comparing the original album versions with alternates, single versions, and the naked album. I think the material is more than solid for a great album; just a little tweaking here and there and it would have been perfect. Let It Be...Naked was a good attempt, but some of the versions on there aren't as good, like Don't Let Me Down, and taking away the false ending in Get Back is criminal. A revisit to the track listing is in order.

But for boomers anywhere else and younger people everywhere who didn't actually grow up when the Beatles were around, the U.K. discography is the only discography. I don't really approve of how the U.S. albums came to be...Capital basically butchered the albums, cut-and-pasted tracks to make the albums they thought would sell the most, until the Beatles put a stop to it at Sgt. Pepper. I don't think anyone would disagree that the U.K. discography is the discography as the Beatles intended it. Anyway, I was just wondering if anyone's listened to any of the U.S. albums extensively, and if anyone has any thoughts on them? I think I'm going to put some playlists together in ITunes that match the U.S. albums, and give them a try. Though Revolver without "I'm Only Sleeping", "And Your Bird Can Sing", and "Dr. Robert" seems blasphemous.
those drove me nuts as a kid because i've always been wicked ocd as far as knowing exact track listing, which songs are on every album, and whatnot. i didn't know what to make of "it's only love" being on help when i'd previously known it to be on rubber soul. even now i sometimes get a little fuzzy on certain songs from the early albums.

I've been working on something for Let It Be, but I've gotta hear the tracks off of Anthology 3 before I can make a steady tracklist.

i like the first one because i recently became a sucker for seeing the way the beatles fit into existing rock n roll when they first started. like i've said, i sort of look at music in two groups--the beatles, and everything else, treating them as if they existed in a vacuum. having more a knowledge of rock n roll history at 25 than i did at age 10, i find the first part of the anthology interesting. it's not as nice a sample of covers as live at the bbc, but it's cool.

vol 2 is great. and maybe it's just the sappy motherfucker in me, but i really, really, really like "real love". better than "free as a bird."

Also, Lennon's missing track from The White Album was worthy of inclusion as well. How Revolution 9 got in but this didn't is rather strange, but maybe two fucked up songs was just too much for Macca.

YouTube - The Beatles "What's The New Mary Jane?" (Rare, unreleased)
holy shit, that was almost 15 years ago?


what's the new mary jane should have been on there, either following or before happiness is a warm gun (i'm leaning toward before, and moving happiness later in the side). revolution 9 never should have happened. i want to exile it to a special hell where it's only got "hey foxymophandlemomma" as company. fuck pearl jam for that shit.

i too thought it was common knowledge "not guilty" was awesome.

perhaps an unpopular opinion along the same lines: i would have liked to see "teddy boy" on something rather than being given to bad finger.

Great tune, but I just can't imagine it being on there. Maybe it's just because I'm so comfortable with the awkward mess the White Album is, that I don't want anyone to "clean" it up...

Some interesting expansions of the Sgt. Pepper's tracklisting there, might give some of them a whirl. Interesting to see the omission from consideration of "It's All Too Much", a cracking Harrison song, which is remarkably long. Pretty sure it was written during the Pepper sessions. Can't imagine it on the album though....maybe the exlcusion of Northern Song and All Too Much is due to some unwritten law about only allowing Harrison one tune on the album? Who knows, seems strange considering he had 3 on Revolver and Rubber Soul, maybe the others felt he was going too far with his Indian interests?

Anthology 1 is cool for the fact it's got In Spite Of All The Danger. My proper introduction to the Beatles was the Anthology TV series as a 9 year old and I watched it over and over and over for years after that. A fascinating story. But that song on the TV series resonated withme somewhat profoundly and it always intrigued me, I remember the video behind the music was the camera going through the Jacaranda Club or somewhere and there was some smiley face on the wall. It's a lovely little song though, the harmonies are a delight. Years later I found Paul playing it solo and live at a recent gig and I thought it was the coolest thing. Anyway, enough rambling....

My stepfather was/is a huge Beatles fan, and he has all the original Capitol albums on vinyl. And he prefers them that way.

Obviously, we can look back and know that the UK discography is the definitive one, and what Capitol did was blasphemous, but for those people who grew up in the U.S. during that time, those were the only albums they knew, so it's understandable that they would have a certain attachment to them.

I do like some things, like I've Just Seen A Face at the beginning of Rubber Soul, as it seems perfect for that album, but other than that, compared to the UK versions, they are horrendous.

Not sure what you mean by "clean" it up; a couple of changes here and there wouldn't alter it too much.

It's All Too Much was recorded after the sessions for Sgt. Pepper's were over, hence it not being considered.

I don't think there was any unwritten rule that he could only have one song on that album, as far as I remember. As you note, he had multiple songs on other albums at the time anyway (although it was only 2 for Rubber Soul, not 3).

Yeah, would the album really suffer if "Wild Honey Pie" was removed and "Savoy Truffle" was replaced by "Not Guilty?" Revisionist? Yeah, but who's really clamoring to hear those two tracks in particular? Not to mention the roaring version of "Revolution," "Hey Jude," or even "Lady Madonna..."

I tried to address the concentrated pockets of songwriting groups on the different sides as best as I could while still keeping similarly themed/sounding tracks together. The more avantgarde stuff on Side Three is still pretty Lennon/Harrison dominated and essentially houses half of the Magical Mystery Tour material, while Side Two still has a focus on Macca's "granny music," albeit with a stronger precense of Lennon as a singer and songwriter. Side Four is probably the most balanced of the bunch. I'm curious to see what you guys think of it now.

I'd ditch "Your Mother Should Know" outright, but I like the symmetry of 7 tracks per side. The songwriting credit come from Wiki:

I don't really think there is anything on Anthology 3 that improves on the other versions around, although Teddy Boy is on there and could be a possibility (it was part of the original Get Back track listing).
