Yeah Magical was an EP upon release in the UK and an album in the US. Can't include it really, not a proper album. Those U.S. albums aren't really considered part of their main catalogue. And same with Yellow Submarine I guess.

MMT *has* to be included because it's become part of the UK canon as of 1976, as evidenced by subsequent releases in 1987, the 2009 stereo and mono box sets, the 2012 stereo vinyl, and the 2014 mono vinyl. I'VE INCLUDED IT (so everyone needs to vote again)! :mrgreen: :ugeek:

Hey all, I've also thrown some new stuff up into the DropBox...a folder with some unreleased tracks, including:

It's All Too Much (full version)
You Know My Name (Look Up the Number) (full version)
Flying (full version)
Revolution 1 (take 20) --> the original version of the song before John chopped off the end bit and built Revolution 9 over it. I love how if you crank up the fade out on the White Album version of Rev 1, you can just hear that weird coda starting...

Also, I've added the Lost McCartney II (how Paul originally intended it) into there. It's a direct rip from the vinyl acetates but it sounds great and it's my preferred way to hear the album, especially for the gorgeous "Blue Sway."

Anyone who wants to join the folder and isn't a member yet, PM me your email address and I'll add you. And remember, when you take music out of the folder: COPY AND PASTE TO YOUR DESKTOP so everyone can grab it!

Enjoy! It's my preferred way to listen to McCartney II. Just like w/RRS, he'd wanted to put a double album out and the label said no... :x

As for the poll, I'm going with Pepper. It's a hard choice though. Sgt Pepper was always my favorite as a teen and it's the album that I love to listen to from start to finish without skipping tracks (though at times I do skip When I'm 64)

Can't go wrong with Pepper. It's still fantastic and one of the greatest albums ever, especially in mono!

Abbey Road for me. Faultless from start to finish. Also their best album in terms of overall production. Fantastic stuff.

Indeed...George even said so himself in the Anthology. Or as Ringo had said, Rubber Soul was the "pot album" and Revolver was the "acid album." Either way, both are stunning.

Ever since I heard it in mono (thanks to some super person [wink, wink]) I don't listen to the stereo version

I don't know if I dreamed this up several years ago (or perhaps any of you might remember and are able to vouch that this was indeed reality) that a local radio station back in Detroit (and perhaps several other stations did throughout the US and maybe abroad) back in the late 80s broadcasted an entire weekend dedicated to Beatles recording sessions from '62-'70. They played most of what was in the archives and I had just received Mark Lewisohn's The Complete Beatles Recording Sessions: The Official Story of the Abbey Road Years and compared everything. I've always wanted for someone to replay that again, but haven't come across it since. It was BEYOND amazing!

Regarding Paul doing vocals on "I Want You" (She's So Heavy)", I've tried to locate it on youtube, but then they claim those recordings are hoaxes..... But I do distinctly remember hearing way back a bootleg that was indeed Paul doing the vocals in all his glory......

"Revolver" is definitely my all-time fave Beatles album, immediately followed by "Rubber Soul"...."Pepper" and "White Album"...I'm often mixed on.. "Abbey Road", depends on the mood I'm in.....

:mrgreen:

I listen to the stereo versions of the albums because those are the ones I grew up with but I prefer the mono, and like you said, Pepper is so much better in mono (and that's the mix the beatles themselves worked on) that it's the only way to listen to it!

KingLouie, I've heard about those hoax recordings of Paul doing the song, too. In fact I'm not sure I've ever heard a real version, even though one is purported to exist.

Funny we're talking about other Beatles singing on alternate takes, I read about a recording of Something the other day that John supposedly sang lead on. I found a bootleg the other day with it on and I'm about to download it. If anyone wants it then let me know and I can put it on the DropBox.
