Im not sure that there are any i would swap despite there being some really good alternate versions, cant think of one. Whilst the acoustic WMGGW is gorgeous and would a real highlight if released on The White Album, the heavier version with Claptons guitar work, George's vocal, Pauls piano and harmonies and Ringo's drums is rightly hailed as a classic and the one i would opt for.

The really major change I could see in a track was in I'm Looking Through You.

"Your Mother Should Know"  is one where I definitely like the Anthology version better.  I guess because Paul's vocals are so raw and untouched, yeah..   a-hard-days-night-paul-7

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

Across The Universe and Strawberry Fields Forever, and possibly While My Guitar Gently Weeps, and Something isn't bad, either.

The part where he says "quit singing with your mouth" I think he was referring to George. Any other ideas on to whom he was referring to?

Greetings, first post here.

 

I don't know if I would have chosen it for the final album over the completed version, but I think that the alternate Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da is interesting.

Welcome! The alternate take of Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da sounds more "reggaeish" to me.

JPM-Fangirl trousered in another thread 

<big snip>

The acoustic version of While My Guitar Gently Weeps is incredible. Why did they drop the third verse?

YES 

I mean, normally, I'm the sort of person who thinks that whatever was on the record was what was intended by the divine Beatles and therefore right. a-hard-days-night-george-10 

But this is a huge exception to that-- maybe it's because I'm a sucker for acoustic ballads and demo-y things, but this version of WMGGW is just so much... better. In fact I never truly appreciated what a great song it was till I heard the acoustic version (shoot me-- I don't like the WA version much-- it's not gently weeping enough for me, more like loudly wailing). 

I suppose Not Guilty on White Album would've been nice too... but no, he could only have two a side, and it couldn't replace any of the ones already on the album. Sigh. 

And now I've got to go listen to Leave My Kitten Alone and That Means A Lot... 

Half of what I say is meaningless... but I say it just to fill the other half with Beatlerubbish.
