I know Art of Dying was written around Revolver era, would have made a great addition to the album, you would just have to take away another George song.

And there were much of his All Things Must Pass album during the Get Back sessions and any other sessions. Let it Down and All Things Must Pass would have made great addition to Abbey Road or Let it Be, and also the great Isn't it a Pity. There is also Not Guilty and Sour Milk Sea from the White Album sessions.

So what do you think of George songs. I definitely would love to see more George songs on albums, but not sure John and Paul would allow that at all.

There's a version of 'Circles' around, as well as Sour Milk Sea which there is a demo of. I think the Beatles would have benefited from releasing All Things Must Pass, as well.

Forgot about Circles, maybe the Beatles should have put the White Album as a triple album.

Not Guilty. Does that count? I know it's from the Anthology, but I'm not exactly sure what your definition of a "George song" is...

What do you mean by "you don't know the definition of a George song is" it is a song written by George, if you have access to Youtube, you could look a bunch of his outtakes and most of is solo album All Things Must Pass was from the Beatles times. But you said you didn't listen to much of his solo stuff so...

Ooh, "Sour Milk Sea"! That Jackie Lomax version is great. I'd love to have heard a Beatles version, or even George solo.

To tell the truth, I really don't think I'd enjoy hearing Beatles versions of any of the ATMP songs that they attempted, "Isn't It A Pity" and whatever else. Maybe I'd change my mind if I'd heard any of the Get Back sessions attempts at them, which I haven't. But as it is, I can't separate those songs from their context of that big triple album. They seem too solemn to have been taken seriously by sardonic John and happy-go-lucky Paul, but they sound just right being sung by George and his backup choir with Phil Spector's cavernous wall of sound.

I just wasn't sure whether a "George song" is a solo song or any song written by him, as long as it wasn't on their studio albums or a single or anything like that. I guess it means solo George, then?

There's a version of Sour Milk Sea with George's vocals on it, I don't know if the Beatles recorded the instruments or not.

There was a demo of Sour Milk Sea recorded during the Kinfauns sessions. At the end of May 1968 the group assembled at George's house to run through what they'd have available when they went into the studio to begin the new album.

the jackye lomax is almost a Beatles record, if i remember well Paul and Ringo are on it, right? so we could put the George vocals-on wich i think only Ringo or John is on percussion- and see how it is. it's a good tune, if it was on a Beatles record it'd become a classic, like i.e. Old Brown Shoe. otherwise the four never reched a good version of All things must pass, though played for a month, it was a kind of thing more similar to The Band than the Beatles, they never "felt" it. during the Get backs George plays or strums a line of Hear me lord, causing john's sarcasm. maybe Let it down, also played then, could have worked well on Abbey Road. but we know, it was a total chaos....they had so many songs to do and finally they played only 5 on the rooftop. what a mess. it could have been the greatest live album ever..George didn't want play his on that 30 janaury, but he was wrong. For You Blue could have worked very well. there is a wonderful electric version, available on bootlegs in wich they play with conviction and fun

An outfake has been created which melds George's vocals onto the musical track of the Jackie recording. Add more John doing whatever from whenever and we get a Beatles reunion. Surefire #1 and instant classic.a-hard-days-night-john-7

thank you meanmrmustard, didn't know that! Paul once said that- talking about the covers- the Beatles songs are like Picasso's drawnings, everyone can see there or  add whatever he want

For me, it's hard to listen to the "Let it Be" album, knowing what songs George had in his hat (so to speak) that were better than some of the stuff that ended up making the album. I have heard a few out-takes of "All Things Must Pass" rehearsals, with John and Paul on background vocals, and I just sort of shake my head and think, "This is the album that included 'Dig It,' 'Maggie Mae,' and 'One After 909.'"

Heck, I would have taken "Wah Wah" (which George wrote, in frustration, during those recording sessions) over any of those three songs.

Not a bit like Cagney.

but they could have made a new double album if they only had the will. that was the problem. how many songs were tried: Child Of Nature, back seat of my car, gimme some truth, another day...one thing must be said: Paul's idea- making a live album of all new songs was great but i think should have demoed a little before begin to play in front of the cameras without any clear line of what to do. maybe with a little more clearness...last day i listened to the rooftop: it should really had been the greatest live album ever...only five songs..what a mess.and the strangest thing is that on the rooftop they still enjoied playng together, especially John! everyone can see it! so, paul's thinkin that playn live again should have renforced them as a band was not absurd at all. everything was still possible, cause klein was not appeared yet, nor spector. but in the end it was destiny. probably...
