I'd suggest setting aside 3 days, 23 hours and 53 minutes and going with A/B Road instead (the Get Back rehearsals). You'll learn a lot and then can tell us about it.a-hard-days-night-paul-5

I'm working my way through it as I can. Interesting stuff.

If you haven't got bored senseless within 5 hours then you are doing it wrong. The aim of those recordings is to make the listeners as bored and fed up as The four Beatles were.

Even if I had enough caffeine to take that sort of challenge, I think my s/o would probably shoot me 2 days into it.

I might be able to get away with the core albums + Past Masters though. Maybe this weekend...

I'm only listening in snatches here and there. So, I am doing it wrong. :-(

Where'd you get it? Is it just on a website somewhere. I know it's not official, so where can you find it? 

Thanks.

You can find it all here (starting on the 2nd, just work your way up and into March) - if the files are active.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 I've listened to chunks of that, and I have to tell you - I nearly wanted to ask Paul and Ringo if I could join the band just so I could quit, at times. The interesting bits are pretty cool to listen to though. Maybe some time (when I'm completely through with my backlog of Better Things To Listen To) I'll try to slog through it all but it seems a chore, even to a hopeless devotee like myself.

What if you want to include the different versions of songs such as mono and stereo?

Do we include all three official releases of "Across The Universe?" Both versions of "Penny Lane," with and without the piccolo trumpet tag ending? Do we toss in George Martin's instrumental music for "Yellow Submarine?" We need someone to step in and establish some guidelines for this marathon. :)

 

Let's go for the whole shebang, the whole "completist's" list. Live. T.V. Radio. Anthologies. Tony Sheridan. Stereo. Mono. Penny Lane with and without the piccolo trumpet tag ending. Remasters. Love. Anything with an official release - not bootlegs.

Are you actually planning on sitting down and doing this, Ahh Girl?

I don't feel qualified to put the list together. Greater Beatles minds than mine are needed to accomplish that task.

Would I marathon all of them? I'm not sure if all of them would still be available for me to acquire. We might have to have a massive BB forum meet-up party where everyone brings their collection to make sure we get all the versions. Can't you just see that party now with all of the talk about favorite/least favorite and best/worst Beatles songs?

Twist And Shout comes on.
Zig, "Crank it up!"
Parlance, "Good, I can take a break and go powder my nose."

Hold Me Tight comes on.
mmm exits the building saying text me when it's over.

And on it goes.

Thank you FFE. Every song will have those who like it so we won't skip any of them. That would be one rocking party!

All Beatles music? Unlike any party I've been to :)

For those that want to hear more glimpses of The Get Back sessions, here they are two 15-minutes (for a grand 30 minutes total compiled by me) of glimpses of the Get Back Sessions from the A/B Road in chronological order.

Part 1 (Twickenham Film Studio sessions - January 2 to January 14, 1969)

Part 2 (Apple Savile Row Studio sessions - January 21 to January 31, 1969)

Let me take you down 'cause I'm going to...Strawberry Fields.

I haven't yet been able to find A/B Road in its entirety without files missing or corrupted.

Everything in a row up to 1970 (without hearing stereo + mono) would be less than 30 hours. That's all I can say at the moment but I can give a better indication when I get back to iTunes. I'm listening to everything in a row chronologically but it's including solo material, a few bootlegs, and stuff released after they broke up. Including all of that (only up to 1980), my playlist is about 87 hours.

Anthology 1-3, the 8 songs they recorded with Tony Sheridan, My Bonnie with the different lyrics, The Decca Audition, Past Masters, the tracks from the Free As A Bird and Love singles, Bootleg Recordings 1963, Live At The BBC 1 and 2, Live at the Hollywood Bowl (1977), the 9 instrumentals from the US soundtracks, Help! with the James Bond intro, the 1 song from the Baby It's You single, The Beatles Story, + the UK albums (with any duplicate tracks in those releases removed) sum up to 26 hours, 25 minutes and 50 seconds.

I just did it that way because that comprises everything that they officially released on both sides of the pond before they broke up + things from that time period that were released after they broke up (excepting the Decca Audition, which I just threw in because it should be there, and not counting alternate mixes of the same songs).

If there were any duplicates in the official canon albums like in Yellow Submarine for instance, I did not remove them but kept those albums intact.
