This topic is about ranking the two LPs indivudual or together. I find it easier indvidual. But sadly, I'll have to get back to on this. Right now my brain isn't in a good mood and it might wxplode if I do so right now.

What are the two LPs, Mono Masters and Past Masters?

No, I meant the two volumes of Past Masters. Sorry for the confusing, have an apple. apple01a-hard-days-night-john-5

I'm sorry, I do not understand all these "list songs on album from best to worst" threads that are cropping up all over the forum. They just don't make sense to me. Discussions about the merits/demerits of an album, yes, but ranking, I just don't get it. Maybe a running poll of all songs officially released would be interesting, but I hate seeing this done to individual albums. And Past Masters is such a wide and varied collection because of it's nature. I won't be ranking it's contents, either as Vol. 1/2, or as a whole.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8Yeah, especially with a compilation album like Past Masters.

I couldn't rank them even if I tried anyways, but I think there's a pretty good chance that Hey Jude would be first (I don't like the Past Masters version quite as much as I do the mono version, though).

I don't like the Past Masters, I only listen to the Mono Masters with two stereo tracks namely Ballad of John and Yoko and Old Brown Shoe. Likewise I don't like ranking albums, songs and album covers because you just can't.

I listen to the mono versions of every album preferably (except for the albums that were stereo-only: Abbey Road and Let It Be and the singles at the end of Past Masters)

I ripped up Past Masters and Mono Masters and placed the songs into their time related albums. Also switch between the mono and stereo lps as many tracks have different mixes. Hardly ever play the '87 remixes of Help! and Revolver tho.

Me neither. In fact, since I got the Beatles in Mono box set, I hardly ever listen to the stereo mixes of any of the albums until 1969 when they are only in stereo.

Should have written Help! and Rubber Soul. Revolver wasnt remixed in '87. Stupid boy.
