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 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.

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 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/entert.....71739.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. :)
