I just made a CD of Beatles solo songs from the 1970's , that I think would have made a great official Beatles album—if they had never split up.
I would love to hear feedback, and what would your hypothetical album be?
Here is the song list:
- Instant Karma
- Another Day
- What is Life
- You're Sixteen (You're Beautiful and you're Mine)
- My Sweet Lord
- Maybe I'm Amazed
- Working Class Hero
- Jealous Guy
- Let Me Roll It
- It Don't Come Easy
- Uncle Albert / Admiral Halsey
- Dark Horse
- Helen Wheels
- Every Night
- Isn't It A Pity

It's a little too many songs for a standard LP, but someone wrote some kind of story about this, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T…..lfth_Album. Pretty interesting.
Oh, and God would have to some lyrical alterations, considering if the Beatles still existed he would probably still believe in them.
Vote now for the best Beatles song ever at this thread. PM me for more details.

Great CD Russell, I do have to agree with IveJustSeenAFaceo's comments on it being a little too long though. The alterations that I would make is dropping 'Working Class Hero', 'Dark Horse', 'Jet' & 'Helen Wheels', not because they're not good songs but because they do seem a little out of place amongst the others to me. One glaring omission for me is the excellent 'I'm The Greatest' from the 'Ringo' album which is the closest thing, other than 'Free As A Bird' & 'Real Love' of course, to a Beatles reunion that we ever got. Klaus Voorman, who's very well entrenched in BeatleLore, took Paul's place but everyone else is present and I think that it would be a great opener to the disc. I'd also switch John's 'God' to the closing slot for a good hard dose of reality after listening to the album, it seems fitting to me in a weird sorta way and I think that John himself would also approve. It also seems perhaps a little unfair that Paul's 'Let Me Roll It' made the cut without including the original song that inspired his satirical response to John mocking him, which of course is Lennon's 'How Do You Sleep?' (George also plays Side Guitar on it), perhaps these two great tracks could preceed 'Isn't It A Pity' before 'God' closes the curtains, what do you think?…:-)

That looks like a pretty great hypothetical double LP indeed! Although I personally would switch "You're Sixteen" for "Early 1970", and probably ditch "Every Night" in favour of "Cold Turkey" just to even out the John-Paul imbalance.
I like the notion of having both "God" and "My Sweet Lord" on the same album!
