^yeah, I agree. You can tell by how it sounds, it isn't a real goof, just a tape error as you said.

I still prefer the UK version…I know the US version is said to have a "folk rock" sound and have been super influential on that movement in the US, but to me it's artificial because of how Capitol put it together and it certainly wasn't what the Beatles intended. The real LP, the UK version, has more of an early psychedelic feel to it, which is how I like it stuart-sutcliffe

Agree! I love my dad's old copy of the US version he gave to me, but I wish I had a UK as well. The songs that are missing are my favorites.

Exactly.  Not sure what the deal of people wanting to collect Capital albums for that very reason.  Unless it's the Butcher Album for it's raretie, other than that every other Capital album has been sold by the millions.  Hardly a collectible.

BEATLES Music gives me Eargasms! By 1966 the Beatles had played over 1,400 shows, toured the world four times and sold the equivalent of 200 million records. At the height of their popularity, and without warning, they pulled the plug and never toured again.

The UK version is much better. It is how the band wanted people to hear their music.

Everyone who hasn't heard the Capitol version straight through with the false start included needs to do so before they claim the UK version is better…I especially have a problem with the logic that it is "better because that's the way the Beatles intended it," because it's NOT better, and that doesn't mean there's something wrong with my ears. The Capitol version is better (in my opinion). I heard the UK version many times berfore I heard the US version, and it never quite clicked for me. I didn't really love it until I heard the Capitol version.
