Woof...

Please Please Me (2012 Stereo Remix & Remaster): All 14 tracks with a more comfortable stereo mix a la Yellow Submarine Songtrack (though Love Me Do & P.S. I Love You are done in narrow, comfortable made-stereo). Includes Ringo's drumming version of Love Me Do and the unreleased How Do You Do It; It fixes some anomalies like the out-of-sync ending of Please Please Me.

With The Beatles (2013 Stereo Remix & Remaster): Includes From Me To You/Thank You Girl, She Loves You/I'll Get You (also in made-stereo), I Want To Hold Your Hand/This Boy and the unreleased One After 909; also with some fixes like George Martin's piano errors and John's voice breaking at the end on Money (That's What I Want), or the out-of-key note of McCartney's bass on All My Loving.

Tony Sheridan & The Beatles (2013 Tribute Stereo Remix & Remaster): All 10 tracks recorded with Sheridan, remastered and remixed as a tribute to the passing of Tony Sheridan.

Rubber Soul (2013 Stereo Remix & Remaster): Includes Day Tripper/We Can Work It Out and the complete, 6:44 minute version of the unreleased 12-Bar Original. This one was done with a combination of the Rock Band multitracks used in a way maybe no one has done it before and the 1987 CD mix as these are flat transfers and with some tweak they match the quality of the Rock Band multitracks (in some cases the 1987 mixes are better than the Rock Band multitracks!)

The Beatles Christmas Records (2013 Remaster): All 7 Christmas records, remastered the best I could; the 1964 Christmas record has a few extra seconds of intro and ending than most versions. The 1966 record had the lowest quality of them all, but I tried to match the quality of the others as much as possible (I actually uploaded all 7 in the Christmas Records forum).

The Decca Audition (2014 Remaster): All 15 tracks, remastered to the best I could. I fixed as many drop-outs, glitches, crackles and distortions as possible while presenting a more clear sound than any other source available.

Future Projects:
- The White Album, The Whiter Album & The Whitest Album (2014 Reconstructions): As George Martin originally suggested, and using all songs, including unreleased songs and one outfake (the Sour Milk Sea - Jackie Lomax instrumental + George Kinafus demo as it is as close as a Beatles version can be than any other of the Kinafus demos), a specially done 12 or 14 strong songs, single album. Then, following Ringo's suggestion of a second separated album, another 12 or 14 strong songs, single album. Finally, a third album with the least strong songs that didn't make into any of the two single albums, plus the rest of the 1968 songs (the original version of Across The Universe, Lady Madonna/The Inner Light single, Hey Bulldog, All Together Now & Hey Jude/Revolution to make a 12 or 16 songs, single album.)
- A remixed album a la Love, but I have to study the pitch tune and speed of each song to make an album a la Love, correctly.
- Any requests as I am running out of ideas. Probably only stereo remix & remaster songs that had vocals to one side only (i.e. Eleanor Rigby, Here Comes The Sun, All Together Now just to mention a few).

I don't keep "real" cds in my car so I love burning compilations. I have most of their albums (in stereo at least... I know, I know, get the mono versions) so I have pretty much everything to pick and chose from. I have a couple of discs made up of two albums each (Rubber Soul and Revolver, PPM and HDN I think... but I'm thinking of doing HDN and Help! maybe because they're both soundtracks. I dunno. This is why I haven't made many of those double album CDs yet :) ). I keep saying I'm going to trim the White Album down to 80 minutes but still haven't gotten around to that. I've made a couple of compilations, my favourite of which is made up primarily of lesser-appreciated tracks and b-sides. I'd love to make a best of Live At The BBC picking my top picks from both volumes, but I'm not quite done obsessively listening to vol 2 on its own yet.

I've been listening to a lot of bootlegs on Youtube lately. I gained an appreciation for bootleg tracks from being a fan of Nine Inch Nails, and became somewhat obsessed with it once I started listening to the Grateful Dead... so I'm eager to throw together a compilation of behind the scenes and/or otherwise bootleg Beatley stuff. Where to begin, though? Besides, there are some great compilations already if you look a bit (I'm fond of the "unplugged" version of the White Album, for example).

So to answer your question, yes, I love making compilations.

I play this "outfake" all the time, it sounds great and I consider it worthy of any 'White Album' "Deluxe Edition" for all Beatles are present, although John's role is greatly reduced by only appearing on the "unplugged" track in spirit, but he usually took a step backward during George's songs anyway so it's appropriate.  I'd place it somewhere on Side 1, but I'm not sure exactly where for it'd fit just about anywhere and would even make a superb opener, great performance of a great song:

 

 

I'd also like to have George's tune 'Circles' fade up as 'Sour Milk Sea' fades out (ala 'Back In The U.S.S.R.' & 'Dear Prudence&#39a-hard-days-night-george-10 for they somehow go together in a weird sort of way, if however different styles...:-)

In my trilogy of White Albums, I put it at the end of The White Album, it is a great closer for the strongest album. Without the outfake, Revolution 1 takes that place. I have the tracklist for the first two of my trilogy of White Albums (between 12 and 14 tracks per album).

Got room for this one?  meanmistermustard posted it in another thread a few weeks back and it's my new favourite 'White Album' track, freakin' amazing, now if we can only get a hold of that 20 minutes+ version of 'Helter Skelter':

 

 

I've never had the pleasure of heroin but I believe that I now know what it's all about after hearing this, the musical diversity of the 'White Album' makes for so many possibilities, the music is very much an exquisite collage much like the poster that accompanied the original album, anything that you add from this period works in so many different ways, excellent...:-)

There's not been a playlist on here for a while so I thought I'd put up one that I have on my Beatles & Elvis i-Pod. No U.K singles on it, I call it Beatles Through The Years.

1  I Saw Her Standing There

2  There's A Place

3  It Won't Be Long

4  Not A Second Time

5  I Should Have Known Better

6  And I Love Her

7  Rock And Roll Music

8  Eight Days A Week

9  The Night Before

10 Yesterday

11  Norwegian Wood

12  If I Needed Someone

13  Love You To

14  Here There And Everywhere

15  Lucy In The Sky

16  A Day In The Life

17  I Am The Walrus

18  Your Mother Should Know

19  Back In The USSR

20  One After 909

I've taken a couple of tracks from most albums & I think it would make a great CD. I know that Yesterday was a U.K single but not whilst they were together.

Yes!! To ease the gloom I felt toward the band breaking up, I created my own new Beatles album from the available solo songs sometime in mid-1971 (while waiting for the guys to get back together of course). I remember trying to copy the Abbey Road album structure to add some legitimacy to the effort. I even made a crude version of the side 2 medley. It went something like this: 

Come Together > Give Peace A Chance

Something > If Not For You

Maxwell’s Silver Hammer > Teddy Boy

Oh Darling > Oh Woman Oh Why

Octopus’s Garden > Early 1970

I Want You > Well Well Well

Here Comes The Sun > Awaiting On You All

Because > Let It Down

You Never Give Me Your Money > Man We Was Lonely

Sun King > Hold On

Medley > Oo You/I Dig Love/Momma Miss America

Golden Slumbers > Maybe I’m Amazed

The End > God

Her Majesty > My Mummy’s Dead

 

Even though the reunion never came, there was lot's of good Beatle-ish music to enjoy that sad year.

Now I love the Beatles sooooo much, I had to have more than the 1962-1966 Red LP and the 1967-1970 Blue LP, so in my iTunes/burned CD,  I made my very own 1962-1970 Yellow CD

When I make a playlist I never make it longer than CD length. If I do, I break it into CD-length units.

The only exception is a party where my wife asks me to keep music going for 3-4 hours.

I have a John Vs Paul playlist that include Beatles and solo stuff.......John Screamer...a Paul one......John Ballad.......Paul one. The very best of both in my opinion........As you can imagine it's a long playlist.

 

I have playlists for every occasion.......Gym, Beach, Dance, Jazz, relaxclassical, Blues, personal nostalgia, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s,.....Then artists..For instance the Clapton one includes some of his work with George and his Apple stuff like 'Sour Milk Sea' and 'That's The Way God Planned it.' Also the little known collaborations he did with people like Vivian Stanshall, 'Labio Dental Fricative'...Which is the action of putting your top front teeth over your bottom lip to make an 'f' or 'v' sound..Something we've all found useful from time to time. Great guitar in that crazy song and on 'Paper Round' the B side........But I digress.

I even have a  ski playlist.

 

So you ask do I have compilations.......Does Dolly Parton sleep on her back??

I did that, and it's one of my "Go to CDs" in my car when I'm not listening to my iPhone/iPod.

I can happily say that Revolution 9 & Good Night and a few others are not on it!

Yes, It's one of those new Nano's. Have the Stereo & Mono box sets on plus some off the 1980 rarities. Then all the Elvis songs, I have plenty of his CD's & just a few live CD"s. I can have great fun doing compilations of all that lot, all their No 1's etc...

5. Think For Yourself

6. The Word

7. Michelle

8. What Goes On

9. Girl

10. I'm Looking Through You

11. In My Life

12. Wait

13. If I Needed Someone

14. Run For Your Life

15. I've Just Seen A Face (U.S. Stereo Mix) - from The U.S. Albums box

16. It's Only Love (U.S. Stereo Mix) - from The U.S. Albums box

17. Day Tripper

18. We Can Work It Out

19. We Can Work It Out (Demo) - from bootlegs

20. Michelle (Instrumental Demo - 1965 version) - from bootlegs

21. Run For Your Life (Take 1) - from bootlegs

22. Run For Your Life (Take 5 - Rough Mix without backing vocals and with more echo on lead vocals) - from bootlegs

23. Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown) (Take 1) - from Anthology 2

24. Day Tripper (Takes 1, 2, and 3) - from bootlegs

25. Christmas Message 1965 (Outtakes 1) - from bootlegs

27. We Can Work It Out (Takes 1 and 2) - from bootlegs

28. Norwegian Wood (Take 4 with false start) - from bootlegs

Looking back at this, I'm thinking that maybe I should have included the U.S. mix of I'm Looking Through You with the false start.

Great cover! If only it was purple...I don't like yellow lol. ..still great tho.

I used to make Cd comps when it was still a novelty to burn such things, like ten years ago, before the process became too tiresome for me to follow up on. That predated my revived beatles fanaticism so no, I've never created any actual beatles comps?
