It's just not the White Album with only 14 tracks.

It has been already made, I'll upload it and put it over here so you and everyone can hear it; I'm actually making my version of The White Album; I'm currently mixing I'm So Tired with Paul more audible vocals from the mono version and some (partially) unused overdubs for the same song. a-hard-days-night-john-6

Finally, After struggling with the album, and had to remix around 40% of the album again because of sound and mixing errors, here's the Sour Milk Sea Outfake, stereo remixed & remastered by myself.

No idea what to do with the remaining tracks. I suppose add them in with the 4 new yellow submarine tracks and put another album together. But not Revolution 9, it wouldnt fit.

I've been wondering about how that album as a single album for a while now. I've been playing around in iTunes trying to find a good tracklist. I will keep with the rules of the original post (14 songs...2 from George and 1 from Ringo) and this is what I came up with!


Glass Onion

Revolution 1

Obla Di Obla Da

While My Guitar Gently Weeps

Martha My Dear

Everybody's Got Something Hide Except Me and My Monkey

I Will


Helter Skelter

Happiness Is A Warm Gun



Sexy Sadie


Don't Pass Me By


The 2nd side was harder than the first! I had to cut some of my favorites but I think this provides for a solid album! It flows very well. I just realized I have the 2 animal names and Sadie and Julia together! I like Ringo's song being last  cause it's kind of saying 'Hey guys I wrote a song, don't pass me by!'

Try to realize it's all within yourself, no one else can make you change....

That's my White Album but i don't know a running order
Back In The USSR
Cry Baby Cry
Honey Pie
Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da
Happiness Is A Warm Gun
Martha My Dear
Rocky Raccoon
Mother Nature's Son
Helter Skelter
Sexy Sadie
Everybody's Got Something To Hide Except For Me And My Monkey
Savoy Truffle

I didn't take Revolution because a better version was released as a single. I think my 14 songs White Album doesn't miss many songs but of course I want to have every beatles songs so it wasn't a bad idea to release it as a double-album

If the Beatles had trimmed down the White Album to 14 songs, which songs would you leave in and which songs would you cut out?

Mine would probably go something like this:

Back In The USSR
Dear Prudence
While My Guitar Gently Weeps
I'm So Tired
I Will
Helter Skelter
Yer Blues
Mother Nature's Son
Everybody's Got Something To Hide Except Me And My Monkey
Long, Long, Long
Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da
Happiness Is A Warm Gun

I mentioned in the "Overrated/Underrated" thread that this album could have been stellar instead of great had it been just a single album. The only problem I ever find with my stance on that is, I have a hard time excluding songs. The only ones I could absolutely do without are "Revolutiion 9" (not a song anyway, but rather an experimental piece) and "Good Night".

The list that sinco put together above (Welcome, BTW!) is terrific IMHO but there are so may other great songs on the album.

Besides, knowing me, I would have gone out and tried to obtain those tracks anyway by some other means (bootlegs, etc...) just because they were recorded by The Beatles!


That's how I feel today, anyway. Check back in about a week.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

Welcome sinco...how about we move this discussion over here:

hmm. this is very difficult since i like all of the
White Album (even Revolution 9... if you listen to the album without pause, it really fits with the flow of the album).


I agree with that, except I would say I actually LOVE all of the White Album, instead of 'like'...
