I've always been baffled by those who think the U.S. version has a greater folk-rock feel when it omits the U.K. version's 2 most blatantly folk-rock tracks: "Nowhere Man" and "If I Needed Someone."
I agree (& said so a few posts ago!)

I would imagine it would depend a bit on which one you heard first. I have yet to listen to the Capitol version although it would be easy enough to recreate. I just have no desire to – couldn't imagine RS not starting of with the opening guitar riff from 'Drive my Car'.
Well, I heard the USA one first, but only about a year before the UK one. I bought the Capitol one and loved it, then heard the original and loved it more, and have never had the desire to go back. Especially since what I owned was the 8-Track tape, with the ugly album art – altered just as pointlessly as the track listing itself, not to mention the typically messed-up tape sequencing.

Why on earth did they add that horrible black and white text over the original vibrant orange? Looks tacky, cheap and repulsive. All of the 60 albums excluding Pepper had their track listings altered to some extent. One heck of an idiotic way to save cash.

I still maintain the Capitol album is a smoother listen, and more folky. I disagree that Nowhere Man and If I Needed Someone are folky. They are more psychedelic. The Capitol track listing has more acoustic guitar throughout. It's a total fluke, and they only did so in this instance, but Capitol created a better track listing.
