Hmmm...I didn't download anything from that site myself, so didn't know. Although the artwork they posted says it has Dig It:



That's from the first linke I posted, by the way, not the second.

Yeah, I downloaded from there, and they switched "Dig It" with a minute-long song called "The Walk," which is apparently a cover.

Like Bono, they prove themselves to be first-rate LIARS.

Ok, found another one. I can't test the links from work though.

Tonight:That Hadouken Sound!: The Beatles ≡ Get Back 2nd Mix (1999)

You used different parameters than myself by adding The Ballad Of John & Yoko and Old Brown Shoe, which I didn't use on mine as they weren't part of the sessions nor part of the film, whereas I Me Mine was in the movie and therefore belongs more.

Agreed with the use of high energy songs to kick it off, which is why I prefer Get Back over Two Of Us there; it really sets the stage better for the whole album by leading off, gives the whole purpose of what they were doing. It definitely didn't belong at the end.

The versions of Let It Be really don't differ too much apart from the solo. I dislike the original album version because it comes on too strong and is a bit all over the place, whereas the single and Naked versions are more succinct. And I know what you are saying with Don't Let Me Down; the original just seems to pack more punch, focusing on Lennon's vocal better at the beginning.

The original Dig It goes on far too long for my tastes, but I understand why you included it here.
Thanks for the response. I guess I widened the parameters because this project was basically abandoned and heavily criticized, and figured all bets should be off. Considering there are tracks on Abbey Road that were demoed all the way back in early '68, I figured it wouldn't be too sacrelige to borrow some songs done in the same spirit.

This may me too abstract or subjective of a thing to try and explain, but even though Get Back is "harder" than Two of Us, there's something missing for me. It's a bit plodding, even though there's a fair bit of energy, and just never soars in the way the other song does. Two of Us just puts a smile on the face, and the melody is a lot catchier, the overall sound more inviting. I also think the repeated line "on our way back home" is almost like an invocation to "getting back" to an older sound, if that makes any sense. It sets the stage.

Am going to check out that last link you posted to see if I can find a better version of Dig It, and I'll also try editing down my 4 minute version to something more palatable.

YouTube - The Beatles- Tomorrow Never Knows

Ringo doesn't get enough credit.

I was all happy when I was in Chicago and noticed the remasters at a Certain Large Coffee Shop Chain, and figured "SCORE! I can get them all with my discount!"

So I buy the 4 they have at the store and figure I'll hunt around the Seattle locations when I get back to find them all. And of course now it looks like we're only selling those 4.

Oh well. At least I got 4 at a discount.

Rubber Soul, Sgt Pepper's, Abbey Road and Help.

So, good ones to start with, at least.

So the version of Dig It from that last link Phanan posted is in much better quality (the files were all .flac), even though it appears to be from the same take I used. I whittled off about 1:30 from the front, so it fades in roughly where it does on the original album "...like a rolling stone...". I also took the little instrumental "Rocker" and dropped it in to make up for some of that lost time. It's just over half a minute (like Maggie Mae), and I think it fits nicely in-between Dig A Pony and Old Brown Shoe.

I'm going to have to try that link when I get home.

Reading up on this whole period has really been fascinating. I keep finding things I didn't know before.

I'm so overwhelmed by this thread because there's way too much I did not know of before. I mean this in a good way, of course.....

Saved the best for last: I'm listening to the White Album remastered for the first time.
