Why is there such a lack of songs from Revolver and Rubber Soul. Only 9 different songs are covered. The cut of Tomorrow Never Knows is, imo, horrible along with the strings only cut of Eleanor Rigby. The rehearsal to I'm Only Sleeping is awesome but really doesn't count as a track to me. 12 Bar Original is kinda lack luster as well.

How did only 6 songs make it out of some of their most prolific time in the studio? Is there just a lack of material for some reason?

It is odd how the selections vary so much, so I am interested in the answer to this one as well.

However, I would have preferred all of 12 Bar Original rather than some of the bogus pastiche tracks they presented.

It's also odd that Anthology 1 has all those interviews while the others lack them. 

And if you saw my love, I'll love her to.

The interview segments were ditched as they were felt to disrupt/jar the listening experience, well that was one of the reasons given at the time Anthology 2 came out.

Yea I haven't thought of that. It seems to me that as time went on they just had less interviews and radio time to pull from so they just quit.
