Do many people know that George re-recorded it?  

I don't know, I just know of it because I have the album.

Yeah, the trouble is that a lot of people don't explore George's back catalogue and miss out on a ton of fantastic music.

Yeah, I personally like George's post Apple Music better than his Apple Music.

I couldn’t agree more, @meanmistermustard and @William Shears Campbell. And yes, Not Guilty is an excellent example; George’s solo version is much better (in my opinion) than the one in the Anthology CD.

I can't stop listening to Besame Mucho lately, Paul's voice fits the song very nicely!

This is one of my favorite Anthology songs. I also love the version in the Let It Be movie. Talk about voice goals.a-hard-days-night-ringo-13

Yes It Is                               Eleanor Rigby

Yesterday                             A Day In The Life

Got To Get You Into My Life   Being For The Benefit of Mr. Kite (Take 7)

And Your Bird Can Sing         

Anthology 3

While My Guitar Gently Weeps      For You Blue

Not Guilty                                   The Long And Winding Road

Rocky Raccoon                            Get Back

Mother Nature's Son                     All Things Must Pass

Come And Get It                          I Me Mine

I think it's really interesting to listen to the early take of Ain't She Sweet on Anthology 1 and then listen to the version on Anthology 3 . It's hard to believe it's the same song!

I prefer the Anthology version of Ob La Di better than the White Album version!

Oh, by the way, this post was made by The Hole Got Fixed!

Now that I'm up to the nineties in the Beatles chronology I can relisten to the Anthologies. Good timing because we will soon be voting on the non-canon poll, and I figured I would get try to get some discussion going.

Happiness Is A Warm Gun from Anthology three was what turned me on to listening to outtakes and demos. Since I first heard it I've been crazy for collecting and listening to them. I really like the "Yoko Ono oh no, Yoko Ono oh yes," part. It's a short fragment, but the beginning of the Oh Yoko and Dear Yoko series.

I like What's The Mary Jane more than Revolution 9 It is one of my favorite songs from The White Album period. John was so prolific during that period, and feels very "Velvet Undergroud-sh." It is a little but more musical than Revolution 9 The lyrics crack me up as does the melody during the chorus.

The first time I heard the Anthology version of Happiness Is A Warm Gun I burst out laughing at the part where John messes up and goes "oh shit.... wrong chord". It was so unexpected, I loved it.

 There are a lot of great moments like that. "Schminking of gin" during take 8 of Rocky Racoon stands out to me as well.

I agree, that and his reaction right after is so darn cute.

But only the laughing version is on Anthology 2 . My brother says that he prefers take two to the original. (The clean version.)
