Like the MMT movie...a-hard-days-night-george-9

Don’t get me wrong, there are some fine moments in the movie, but it was a flop, anyway you look at it!  

But I like it. a-hard-days-night-paul-11

Just because the Beatles artistic choice was the 'MMT' EP or the 'YS' album doesnt mean its better, it can very easily be that their artistic decision was incorrect and subsequently improved upon thru a future release. If that is a compilation album then so be it. The Beatles werent infallible and sometimes they got it wrong. 

I agree and I guess that's the point of making a compilation but I do see understand why an official album would be held in higher regard and that makes sense to me - I guess my first impression of The Beatles catalog was the 2009 box set

I don't think anyone agrees with me on this but between the US LP version of Magical Mystery Tour   and Sgt. Pepper 's Lonely Hearts Club Band , I see the Magical Mystery Tour  LP as the better collection of songs between the two.

Nothing wrong with that thought at all. I don't give a flying fig how it was compiled. If overall, you like the track selection better than what can be found on Pepper, you are not alone.

True, but if Pepper was the compilation LP, it would have had Strawberry Fields Forever & Penny Lane on it, and it would have probably been the better LP. a-hard-days-night-paul-11
