No particular preference for any, except I far prefer the album version of Get Back

What do you mean by variation, how far out is this reaching? 

What Goes On mono mix has the end guitar fills missing.

And I Love Her RM1 US (Something New) has a single tracked Paul vocal for the verses and double tracked for the chorus's.

I have a swedish ep entitled 'Penny Lane' which has pretty cool versions of strawberry fields, And Your Bird Can Sing, Penny Lane (a more prominent flute, mellower lyrics, less of the lower horn (tenor sax, or tuba?)  but the Sgt Pepper's version has a more finished, fuller tone, and I'm Only Sleeping (the first two lines of which are my ringtone a-hard-days-night-george-10Also I'm Only Sleeping closes the EP.

In this bootleg pack i ran across (mostly semi-official releases, although there's one album called 'The Black Album' that I haven't been able to find info on anywhere, here or on the web in general (of course I will try to acquire the real versions as i can afford them - the fun of collecting).  I found one copy for sale, on amazon.  It has stuff like an early rehearsal tape of She Came In Through The Bathroom Window, but it also has unsurpassed masters vol 1-7.  There are a lot of great versions of the tunes on those.  Lots of multiple takes...for example I Saw Her Standing There take 12 is pretty good, i like the relative volumes of the vocals and george's guitar.  I also think Ringo's a little louder and plays a couple different (better imo) riffs, and the harmony is better.  The banter and fooling around is what really makes it more than the music, from what I've heard so far (yes I've gotten so much new stuff this year I haven't gotten through it all in 9 months!.

I think I have a pretty good ear, at least according to the music teachers I've had, but I might me imagining some of this a-hard-days-night-george-10

Half of what I say is meaningless... I feel good in a special way, I'm in love and it's a sunny day BeatlesBible.com earns royalties if you use these links when shopping: Amazon | iTunes
