I saw a post recently where somebody talked about how they would perfect With The Beatles (adding in I Want To, She Loves You etc) and it got me thinking how I would perfect all of their albums, if I had been Sir George Martin back in the day. I'm only going to Rubber Soul onward for now.

Rubber Soul :

Get rid of What Goes On , Run For Your Life and Drive My Car . Use Day Tripper and We Can Work It Out to open each side and close the album with In My Life .

Revolver :

Pretty much perfect, though I would swap Doctor Robert for Rain maybe.

Sgt Pepper :

Get rid of Lovely Rita , and include All You Need Is Love (Yes I know it was written/released after) at the start of side 2. And have some more reminders what the album is about, maybe just sounds of instruments tuning up between songs or something.

The White Album :

I would include Lady Madonna , The Inner Light and the acoustic version of While My Guitar Gently Weeps , possibly swapping out for Bungalow Bill, Rocky Raccoon and Piggies . Though I would find some other spot for BB's Spanish guitar and Piggies ' harpsichord. 

Abbey Road :

I would get rid of Maxwell and Octopus, then shunt Here Comes The Sun and Because onto side 1, leaving side 2 for the medley alone.

Let It Be

Keep The Long And Winding Road as a single, or perhaps as the closing track. Present the album as more of a live album. Cut out Maggie Mae , Dig It and For You Blue and include the rooftop version of Don't Let Me Down . Have the album version of Let It Be as the opening track rather than Two Of Us . As with Sgt Pepper I would include reminders of what the album is about, i.e snippets of conversation between songs to give a sense of cohesion.

And there we are. What would your perfect versions be?

I think you do a pretty good job there - very thorough! Until the Get Back /Abbey Road era. No I Want You on Abbey Road ? I would make a few minor improvements to both Abbey Road and Let It Be but I do think you go too far. Maxwell's Silver Hammer and I Want You are far too produced and precise to fit in there.

There's a reason why I put those there. Maxwell's Silver Hammer was in the Let It Be film, so I think that it should be on it's respective album. As for I Want You (She's So Heavy), they played a brief piece of it during the rooftop concert, so I thought it should be on the album as well, although I can understand you here. Also, since I'm adding an element of fantasy with this, in my version of the rooftop concert, they play the full song.

The main change I would make though is replacing Revolution 9 and Good Night with Hey Jude , I sure wish The Beatles didn't have that stupid rule about not putting singles on albums and releasing album tracks as singles.

Tell you what, I'll make 2 perfect discographies, 1 that has some fantasy involved and 1 that's realistic:

I actually just got around to compiling The Beatles discography for use with an mp3 player. I did 2 versions, UK and US.

For the UK, i used mono for everything except Abbey Road and The Ballad Of John And Yoko single and did minimal changes. The only pre-Pepper change i did was use Matchbox as the 14th track on A Hard Day's Night , since the album needs a 14th track and a Ringo song and this one fits the bill perfectly.

For Magical Mystery Tour and Yellow Submarine , i made an 11 track album, with Side A being the UK MMT EP and Side B being the 5 tracks from Yellow Submarine that have yet to make a UK album appearance.

Instead of having Let It Be being the closer, i used Glynn John's original tracklisting of Get Back (minus the songs not featured in the film) but using the mixes featured on Let It Be (or in the case of Let It Be , Get Back , and Don't Let Me Down , Past Masters ) followed by Abbey Road .

Since it's safe to assume that had it been released on time there would've been a mono version (or at the very least a fold down), i folded down most of the tracks to mono with 3 exceptions. For Get Back and Don't Let Me Down (as well as Get Back (Reprise) which is just the finale from the single version of Get Back ) i used the original mono mixes and for The Long And Winding Road , i isolated the center channel so Phil's orchestra can't be heard.

For Abbey Road , i left it in stereo since this was recorded with stereo in mind and the stereo is great. I also placed Her Majesty in it's original position and removed the silence after The End , so now The End is The End .

As for the US versions, i went nuts:

For starters, i used stereo unless otherwise noted since stereo was more popular in America at the time. Also, all tracks are UK versions, that means no false start on I'm Looking Through You or surf intro on Help !. Finally, i decided to pretend that The Beatles didn't forbid Capitol from screwing with their releases so i could make more fantasy albums.

Meet The Beatles is unaltered. I Want To Hold Your Hand and This Boy in mono.

Twist And Shout is Please Please Me but opens with From Me To You and removes Misery and There's A Place . From Me To You , Love Me Do , and P.S. I Love You in mono.

Long Tall Sally is The Beatles Second Album but with Can't Buy Me Love in You Can't Do That 's original position and You Can't Do That before She Loves You . Can't Buy Me Love and She Loves You singles in mono.

A Hard Day's Night but with Can't Buy Me Love , You Can't Do That , and I'll Be Back replaced with Matchbox .

Beatles '65 is unaltered. She's A Woman and I Feel Fine in mono.

Beatles VI is unaltered. Yes It Is in mono.

Help ! is a 7 song EP that contains only the 7 movie songs. Ticket To Ride in mono.

Rubber Soul is unaltered from it's US version.

Yesterday And Today but with the 3 Revolver tracks replaced with Rain , Paperback Writer , and I'm Down . I'm Down in mono.

Revolver is unaltered.

Sgt. Pepper 's Lonely Hearts Club Band is unaltered.

Magical Mystery Tour is unaltered. Tracks 9-11 in mono.

Yellow Submarine 's side A is unaltered (albeit using the Real Love version of Yellow Submarine ), side B consists of Across The Universe (charity version but at the correct speed and without the intro), Revolution 1 (which would've been titled Revolution ), Lady Madonna , The Inner Light , and You Know My Name (Look Up The Number) (complete version). Lady Madonna and The Inner Light in mono.

Beatles '69 is the first 7 tracks of The Beatles for side A, and Blackbird , Revolution (which would've been titled Revolution 1 ), Hey Jude , Cry Baby Cry , and Good Night for side B.

A Doll's House is Birthday and Yer Blues followed by tracks 12-15 of The Beatles for side A, side B is Monkey, Mother Nature's Son , tracks 8-10, and Julia .

Abbey Road but the side openers are replaced with Sexy Sadie and Long, Long, Long and Oh! Darling and Because are also removed.

Come Together is Come Together , Don't Let Me Down , Oh! Darling , Helter Skelter , Let It Be (single version), Here Comes The Sun , Because , Old Brown Shoe , Get Back (single version), and The Ballad Of John And Yoko .

Let It Be but no Across The Universe or Get Back . For You Blue and The Long And Winding Road switch places.
