Hi, everyone. It's been a long time. I was listening to the White Album and wondering, where do you think songs like "What's The New Mary Jane ", "Not Guilty " and such be on the album if they made it onto the final album. I thought I read somewhere that "What's The New Mary Jane " made it onto a rough track listing so maybe someone knows where it actually would've been. I'm curious to hear all your opinions.

Both could have replaced any of George's tracks apart form WMGGW.

Interesting question, I think the obvious place for 'What's The New Mary Jane ?' would be in place of 'Revolution #9' or before it if you were to include them both, but that's assuming that you're using the 'Anthology 3 ' version.  I'd be more inclined to use the acoustic version of 'What's The New Mary Jane ?' which is much shorter and slot it after 'Piggies ' on Side 2, while keeping 'Revolution #9' for it's a better showcase of avant garde, than the 'Anthology 3 ' version of 'What's The New Mary Jane ?' in my opinion, and both of them would be overkill for 8 minutes of 'Revolution #9' is enough to digest.  I think that 'Not Guilty ' is a little bit more difficult to place for it disrupts the "pattern" of one George tune per side, but something tells me that it belongs on Side 3 somewhere, or maybe even a good opener for Side 4.  There's other songs to consider here for addition too, I'm still flipping over the lengthy 'Revolution - Take 20' that meanmistermustard linked up last week in that other thread and would love to see that take 'Revolution #1's place, or I'd even consider adding 'It's All Too Much ' in there somewhere as well for there's a version out there with an extra verse (that's also heard in the 'Yellow Submarine ' movie) with a much longer fade-out.  The trouble is that I'm quite fond of the 'White Album ' as is (it's my favourite Beatles' album) and adding or subtracting anything alters it make-up significantly, but having said that, the album is all ready very much "cut & paste" and I see more songs adding to the "encyclopedia of music" that it is and not really interfering with the flow so much if they're ideally placed...:-)
