Rick, James, Kylestyle, and Jules;

Agree with you all again, no matter how much we have disagreed in the past (and may in the future) your points of view are very informed, sometimes enlightning and ALWAYS sincere and/or funny/and or very interesting! Never wasting each other's time like XXX.


The singles as you point out are a wonderful topic, because the songs are astonishing in every way! It's very interesting to note the time period where they were recorded/released, then imagining them onto the album of that time and WHEW BABY! what lp's those evolve into!

How come you rubbish timeless tracks as Lady Madonna, Hey Jude, Revolution, Get Back, Ballad of John and Yoko etc? Staggering.

There are songs in their solo careers that are a million times better than crap like:

Got my hands on a ton of Mono Mixes for Beatle songs...
Paperback writer is arguably much much richer...

The stereo mix(on Past Masters) sounds like all they did was turn the bass up and push it forward... rubbish mixing.

What was Laz on about? The songs he mentioned are some of the best ever. None of The Beatles ever released anything solo that was as good as they did together. As PM said, they were "mining gold" in those days.

Anyone else noticed how good Ringo's drum entrance in Hey Jude is?

yep, and all the other beatles classics " Get back" and " Paberback writer".

I think he may have been referring to the Hey Jude album. I noticed that similarity right away. I used to have HJ on vinyl before having to sell a lot of records for rent money years ago. I was disappointed at first that it wasn't released on CD, until I realized that Past Masters vol 2 more than made up for it. It doesn't waste time with the two songs from A Hard Day's Night (which I always thought were out of place on HJ), but replaces them with two of the best non-album-single songs, "Day Tripper" and "We Can Work It Out". Then it follows almost the same track list as HJ, but adding the songs that were missing ("The Inner Light" and the single version of "Get Back"). Then it adds a few more for good measure, such as the "wildlife" version of "Across the Universe" and the single version of "Let It Be" with its wonderful B-side, "You Know My Name (Look Up the Number)". All in all, a superior album, not just a pointless compilation. I think the strength of the material makes it as good as any of their regular albums.
