Anthology 2 is lots of peoples favourite of the Anthology series. It was the one that disappointed me the most. High as the highs are - the whole Strawberry Fields sequence is remarkable. Too much of the second is taken up with "fakes" though - bits and pieces of various outtakes flung together to create new versions. I would rather they'd given more straight, uninterfered-with, outtakes.

I agree on the editing thing.

But - stop the press - it will be the start of BBC Vol 2 tonight - I just picked it up.  Anthology 2 is postponed a few days.

PS - I like Anthology 1 most just from the track listings, all of that really early stuff is just amazing and I hadn't heard ANY of it before.

A song in any other Beatles outtake is just as gorgeous.

I like Anthology 3 best of all the three. The Esher songs, a FAR better "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da" with Paul at his dorkiest, an acoustic "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," "Get Back" right at the end of the rooftop concert, "Yoko's divorce has gone through," an early "All Things Must Pass" and "Teddy Boy," an a capella "Because," "The End" as originally intended, George Martin's "Dave Dee has left the group" speech... love that Anthology album.

I'm with you on Anthology 3, though it has to be said, it was George Harrison's "Dave Dee... etc.", and The End was a '90s concoction of the type I objected to the amount of on Anthology 2 - certainly not as "originally intended", as "as intended" made Abbey Road.

Assuming you're criticising us for admitting we didn't like all the "official fakes" on Anthology 2, and punning on Shakespeare's "A rose by any other name", I would agree except we both know how great the real outtakes are.

You can't slam the crap Apple put out in one breath, and defend it in the next. What would you rather be the deluxe Sgt. Pepper if it ever arrived, the album and the Anthology creations, or the album and the Purple Chick revelations?

Just finished Live At The BBC Vol 2 - disc 1.  My thoughts in the thread on that album.

Erm , i wasnt criticising anyone. I was saying that The Fool On The Hill is a fabulous song in any outtake guise (well takes 1 and 4). Maybe i should have used "This" but hey-ho too late now, and Shakespeare didn't and he knew what he was talking about. In my own world I also distinguish thru using "outfake" and "outtake" so outfakes don't come into it here when i was posting, never even gave them a thought.

Personally i am not a fan of the outfakes, read my posts, probably in the anthology threads but elsewhere certainly, and you will find that out very quickly. I also detest on a massive scale what happened to Not Guilty (where they hacked away until it was a weeping mess lying in the corner whimpering at the brutality of its attack - i am amazed George let that out), the biggest piece of shit on any of the Anthologies and in the top 3 of shit they ever put out on record. 

As for the outtakes, i rarely go anywhere near them. Why listen to take 6 of Lucy with the lead guitar flown in from take 3, the bass from reduction mix 34, John's vocal from a 1983 remix, and the Lowery organ section pieced together from takes 1, 3, 7, 6 & 4 when i have the Rock Band isolations which are way more interesting.

I will defend Apple for the little good they give us (Anthology-wise there is a bit when you rack it up (the true outtakes, a few of the live pieces, some demo's) however the out-fakes are "meh" and i never want to see one released ever again), i think that's fair. It's safe to say it could have been so much better if someone with half a brain had been involved, instead we have Apple who haven't got half a brain between them. 

That's too much for a morning.

My apologies, mmm. I just found it a hard post to understand. Which is why I said "assuming", knowing - or at least assuming - that if I'd assumed wrong you'd write my wrong, and make all clear to understand. Which you did do, and I thank you that you did do. Glad I understand now. Makes more sense now.

I'm glad you got it - the only bit I got was the pretty pink picture :)

 mja, no apologies needed. I imagine many of my posts are hard to understand. They make sense to me but that really means nothing.

trcanberra, hopefully mja was referring to the first as i'm not wanting to have to explain the explanation. The pretty pink picture is ultimately the most important.

There are quite a lot of nice images under a google image search for peace, i like this one as well

I was referring to first, mmm.

Basically, tr, from what I understand, mmm was explaining that his first meant that, no matter how much crap Apple buries it in, and boy did they bury it crap "fakes", The Fool On The Hill [take 4] is a great real outtake. And that he likes take 1 as well, which is also real.

Pentatonix. So freaking talented. And so adorable in their fan greetings at the end, you just want to give them all a big squeeze.

I'm listening to this really fab band, not sure if anyone has ever heard of them…  they call themselves "The Beatles".  a-hard-days-night-john-1

Today I am listening to the albums all the way though, only skipping maybe three songs, like "Mr. Moonlight" for example, because, just NO…  

Almost on Revolver  now.  heart

Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd. 

First time hearing and find it good but some instrumental sections go on a bit. I have the impression however that with repeat listens it will only get better as i tend to go into new bands with a bit of apprehension. To get thru and not be getting bored is good.

Earlier it was Simon & Garfunkels Bridge Over Troubled Water which is a great album tho the audience clapping along to Bye Bye Love is cringing, someone needs to mix that out.

Nice one - two of my favourite albums.  Love the cover on the Pink Floyd.

I've heard that the guys in that band are as good to the eyes as they are to the ears. Delectible combination.
