I don't feel a bit bad about the White Album taking a back seat to VGPS. I think it is one of the Beatles' best albums-but suffered from having 47 minutes crammed onto one disc because of Revolution 9 and the sound quality on a lot of the cuts suffered while there is nearly enough filler to make a complete album (Long Long Long, Wild Honey Pie, Rev 9, Do It in the Road, etc-yes, I think Do It in the Road is filler). I like their middle period best, from Hard Days Night through Revolver. My fave five of their originals: 1. Got to Get You Into My Life 2. I'll Be Back 3. Every Little Thing 4. You've Got to Hide Your Love Away 5. Things We Said Today I have a mix at home of George Harrison's Beatle songs. It includes the Berry covers he sang in their early days and his originals. It is a great CD; he was a very good songwriter and singer. While My Guitar Gently Weeps is my favorite cut on the White Album, but is poorly produced.
I'll have to edit this list or add to it the more I think about it Dear Prudence Yer Blues She Said She Said It's all too Much Only a Northern Song Hey Bulldog I want to tell you Bungalow Bill Sexie Sadie Long Long Long Dig a Poney Don't Let me down Revolution ( both versions ) Mr Moonlight Mr Kite The Word Taxman Inner Light Within you Without You Hapinness is a Warm Gun Nowhere man
Great to see so many different choices -- I like the fact that we're going for the less well-known non-hit tracks. (Amazing that "I'll Be Back" is our top choice so far -- I'll bet plenty of people who call themselves Beatles fans couldn't even call that one easily to mind.)
Nancy, I knew you'd agree with me on "Oh! Darling."
