Thank you Two After 908, for this idea.

Have any of you made a fan made compilation album of the Beatles? I've made plenty, I made the Red Album, The White Album as a single disc. What Goes On, and album to express my feelings about... something. And an album of underratted Beatles songs called Nowhere Band.

So how about you? Ringo wants to know a-hard-days-night-ringo-4.

I've made 4. The Rishikesh Album Volumes 1 & 2, From Me To You Sessions, Please Please Me Sessions.

My favourite song is 'Stairway to Heaven' by Motley Crue on their 1876 album 'Yellow Submarine'.

I will make a mix for work or the car, is that the same thing?

I suggested at work that we have one day a week that we can each bring a CD to work to listen to, and to my utter delight, my boss thought it was a good idea!  Of course I was so excited and I was the only one that remembered.  I said to my boss before I put in the CD "This mix has a lot of variety!  It has Paul McCartney, Paul and Linda McCartney, Paul McCartney and Wings, and The Beatles!"  a-hard-days-night-john-1

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

This is kind of neat, because when the internet first came into its own (2002ish), I was an avid bootleg trader.  We all used to make our own special compilations with unique artwork and our own label names.  Hell, I bought collections from Dr. Ebbett himself.

Nice to see that over a decade later, there still seems to be interest in compiling collections based on time periods or themes.  Gives me a bit of a warming glow.  

 

Or it could be that today is 4/20.  One or the other.

E is for 'Ergent'.

I used to make up tons of compilations from official tracks (best of John, best of Paul) to solo to outtakes with themes etc right thru to various artist compilations titles with titles inspired from Beatle bootleg cds. They even had printed artwork. I also gavecopies to my family even tho they dont really like the outtakes. I got rid of them all years ago but some still exist in houses around the world.

I converted the audio of roughly 40 rare tracks off YouTube into MP3's and made a "Rarities" album (using the artwork from the '70s compilation of the same name).  I also put together my preferred version of both Sgt. Pepper and, thanks to an online editing program, what I feel to be the definitive version of Let It Be.

Not so far - with Red, Blue, 1, Love - already so many.

I may well do so with some less common album tracks when I have heard the singles one too many times.

I suppose playlists would be todays compilations considering how technology has advanced replacing cassettes completely and reducing the requirement of cd's, many cars nowadays can even play music files on usb flashdrives. Why burn a cd when its quicker to compile numerous playlists on an iPod or smartphone?

Unless in the context of this thread compilation is the same as a playlist.

I make playlists that are the same length as a CD.  Then I sometimes burn them onto CD-Rs to give to people.  I still enjoy sending them in the mail to people.

An exception is when I make a playlist for a party, which then will be considerably longer.

The other exception is that I will sometimes make a chronological playlist that contains every song I own by an artist and listen to the whole thing in order over a period of days.  But I own way too many Beatles songs to be able to sort them out.

For making playlists, yes it's easier than burning a CD. But, for me, having a CD is better than a digital copy from iTunes. I feel like I actually own the album, other than just having it on my laptop (Which I do, I loaded all of my CDs onto my laptop, but I have a couple CD stands beside my desk laid out in the order I want and with empty spaces in which I already know where they go)

My favourite song is 'Stairway to Heaven' by Motley Crue on their 1876 album 'Yellow Submarine'.

Same here. Upload cd's to the laptop and then play via computer on ipod is the normal procedure.

I've had a playlist of just the special BBC cover my phone before I added the commentary, and the covers that they've released commercially. I also made playlists of the Decca Tracks, several home demos, and different takes of certain tracks.

And if you saw my love, I'll love her to.

I made one with Taxman as the lead track, called "Nineteen for Me". At one point it has Because, followed by Helter Skelter, and then In My Life. It also has the Mean Mr Mustard/Polythene Pam/She Came In Through The Bathroom Window Medley. It ends with Please Please Me, then Tomorrow Never Knows. Other than that, there's about 15 other tracks

I did a lot of playlists with some certain theme, for eg. the most energetic songs, the mos peaceful, the generally sad ones, the euphoric ones... and also a playlist which is supposed to show their evolution using 2 tracks from each album... I do a lot of compilations, mostly one-time listeners. Oh, and I also did my "Singles" album with every UK single in chronological order, with artwork and everything.

I created this EP:

1, From Me To You,

2, Thank You Girl,

3, Get Back,

4, Don't Let Me Down.

All mono.

The first two were released on a single on, 11 April 1963.

The last two were released on a single on, 11 April 1969.

1 and 3 were charted, number 1 on Cashbox and Billboard respectively.

2 and 4 were charted, number 35 on Billboard.

I would like to see these on an album, all in mono.

1. "Can't Buy Me Love"

2. "Twist And Shout"

4. "She Loves You"

7. "I Want To Hold Your Hand"

9. "Please Please Me"

14. "Do You Want To Know A Secret?"

38. "I Saw Her Standing There"

48. "You Can't Do That"

50. "All My Loving"

52. "From Me To You"

61. "Thank You Girl"

74. "There's a Place"

78. "Roll Over Beethoven"

81. "Love Me Do"

There was a fifteenth song bubbling under the 100. It was called, "Why."

This explains why. http://www.jsonline.com/entertainment/musicandnightlife/103171739.html

Yes, I make different compilations every couple of weeks. I have a system in my car that can play music from a USB drive, so I'm constantly creating folders of new compilations for when I have longer commutes to make.

One of my favorite sets of compilations is to take the best of the best from the Beatles' solo albums during a given period (for ex., "Plastic Ono Band," "All Things Must Pass," and "Ram") and put them all together as though it were a Beatles album.

I also like to mess around with Audacity and stitch together my own tracks, then stick them all on one "rarities" compilation album. I did a nice blend, for example, of John Lennon's "Woman," mixing the official recording with the more acoustic demo version. It made for a much fuller-sounding song in the end. I'll do that sometimes, too, with official releases of Beatles or Beatles' solo material and live performances. Blending stuff from "Wings over America" with the original album versions produces some nice results, in some cases.

Maybe I should post some of these experiments to my chirbit account for anyone who wants to download them.

Not a bit like Cagney.

That'd be fantastic. I might have to try some of that myself now. :)
