I know there's a post about compressing The Beatles into a single disc, but I wanted to see how you guys would make The Beatles into a triple album (although my secret reason to make this is so that there were 30 topics relating to this album instead of 29), here's mine:

Side 1:

Back In The USSR

Dear Prudence

Glass Onion

Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da

Wild Honey Pie

The Continuing Story Of Bungalow Bill

While My Guitar Gently Weeps

Happiness Is A Warm Gun

Side 2:

Martha My Dear

I'm So Tired

Blackbird

Piggies

Rocky Raccoon

Don't Pass Me By

Why Don't We Do It In The Road

I Will

Julia

Side 3:

Birthday

Yer Blues

Mother Nature's Son

Everybody's Got Something Except For Me And My Monkey

Sexy Sadie

Helter Skelter

Long, Long, Long

Side 4:

Revolution 1

Honey Pie

Savoy Truffle

Cry Baby Cry

Revolution 9

Good Night

Side 5: (Early 1968 and Yellow Submarine outtakes)

Lady Madonna

Across The Universe

Only A Northern Song

All Together Now

Hey Bulldog

It's All Too Much

Side 6: (Summer 1968 outtakes)

Not Guilty

What's The New Mary Jane

Jubilee

Sour Milk Sea

While My Acoustic Guitar Gently Weeps

Revolution

Hey Jude

The only thing I'd change with that is to swap Revolution and Not Guilty

@HMBeatlesfan This is beautiful! I tried to beat my thank high score on that post by thanking it 6 times. I love how the original beautiful double album is left untouched. I do agree with @The Hole Got Fixed that Revolution 2 should be moved to the beginning of side 6. Not Guilty is great, but it's a weak opening track. Other than that, it's perfect.

I was about to go to sleep but then immediately saw this thread and had to share my thoughts, being a White Album Enthusiast.  I love the album just the way it is, but it'd be interesting to see how adding another disc would change it.  I personally wouldn't want any singles or Yellow Submarine songs on it, as that they really don't fit in at all if you ask me.  So here's a list of songs that I think would be good on the third disc.

Not Guilty (the full 6 minute version)

Junk

Sour Milk Sea

What's The New Mary Jane

Circles

Step Inside Love/Los Paranoias

Jubilee

Oh My Love

And then I thought maybe yet another version of Revolution might be cool. (Revolution 2?)

I don't know why you think the songs from Yellow Submarine or non album singles wouldn't fit.

The Revolution single version is Revolution 2.

Also I am a White Album enthusiast as well, and I really appreciated the leaving of the first two LP's be for this. I always love bonus tracks or bonus material at the end of an album. I think what we really need, tho is the Quadruple The Beatles LP CD set that apple promised in the 90's.

They just feel really separate from the rest of the material on the album- especially the YS tracks.  See, I think that the Beatles' psychedelic period ended right about when they went to Rishikesh.  The only western instruments available to the Beatles in India were acoustic guitars, which meant that psychedelic, Pepper-esque songs would be pretty hard to write.  As a result, the songs were a lot more basic, and the finished product also ended up more basic and not "Psychedelic Rock" at all. However, since Lady Madonna , The Inner Light , Hey Bulldog , It's All Too Much , etc. were all written and recorded before the trip to Rishikesh, I still consider them a part of the psychedelic period.  So I don't think they fit in with most of the White Album songs, which are largely blues and acoustic based.

As for Hey Jude /Revolution , I dunno, it just feels like a separate statement from the White Album .

I couldn't agree more with @limitlessundyinglove.

You're including songs recorded over an eighteen month period, with major changes occurring between the circumstances of the first and last.

There is an obvious set of recordings to draw a third disc of honest White Album -era bonus material, the Esher demos.

And if you're widening the scope of that 1968 album, how does including Pepper outtakes from a year earlier, while totally ignoring something as beautiful as...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?.....O5B6V93LbA

give anyone any deeper understanding or appreciation of the White Album -era Beatles?

If the Yellow Sub songs need to be artificially bolted onto anything, they would fit far more on Capitol's MMT than the White.

Totally agreed Ron, I even made an attempt to create a Pepper follow-up using the MMT Soundtrack and the rest of the April to October 1967 tracks, I create a (even if not their best) solid album, and hell, how do you even follow up Pepper? Anyway, here's the tracklist:

Side One:

01 Magical Mystery Tour

02 The Fool On The Hill

03 Only A Northern Song

04 Flying

05 Your Mother Should Know

06 Blue Jay Way

07 I Am the Warlus

Side Two:

08 Hello, Goodbye

09 You Know My Name (Look Up the Number)

10 All Together Now

11 Baby You're A Rich Man

12 It's All Too Much

13 All You Need Is Love

 

I'll soon post my tiple WA as well

Regarding the monster 3LP White Album , I didn't add any pre-India songs, with the notable exception of Across The Universe , since it wasn't released until 1970, and the White Album is a far more logical spot to place it on. I cheated a bit by adding some stuff they had written but didn't record until later, like some Abbey Road cuts (Something , Mean Mr. Mustard/Polythene Pam ), and even solo material (Look At Me , Teddy Boy , Junk, Every Night ), all that joined with the Hey Jude single, and some studio outtakes, we've got our disc no.3. The changes I've made to the other discs are minimal, but there are some. Exclusions are Sour Milk Sea and Step Inside Love, since they were written for other artists, and Circles, since it is as boring as slow-dancing with your own sister. I changed the name back to "A Doll's House", because I like the artwork better, and for the sake of change, as well. There it is:

The Beatles - A Doll's House
Side One:
01 Back In The USSR
02 Dear Prudence
03 Glass Onion
04 Ob La Di Ob La Da (Anthology 3 Version)
05 Wild Honey Pie
06 The Continuing Story of Bungallow Bill
07 While My Guitar Gently Weeps
08 Happiness Is A Warm Gun
Side Two:
09 Martha My Dear
10 I'm So Tired
11 Blackbird
12 Piggies
13 Rocky Raccoon
14 Don't Pass Me By (with the A Beginning intro)
15 Why Don't We Do It In The Road
16 I Will
17 Julia
Side Three:
18 Revolution (Past Masters version)
19 Something (Abbey Road version)
20 Every Night (Paul solo)
21 Child Of Nature (original demo)
22 Junk (Paul solo)
23 Look At Me (John solo)
24 What's the News Mary Jane (three minute edit)
25 The Long And Winding Road (Let it Be version, w/strings)
Side Four:
26 Across The Universe (Past Masters version)
27 While My Guitar Gently Weeps #1 (LOVE version)
28 Mean Mr. Mustard (Abbey Road , segues into)
29 Polythene Pam (with proper ending, Abbey Road )
30 Teddy Boy (Paul solo)
31 Not Guilty (Anthology 3 version, with 30 seconds of the "crazy" part of WTNMJ as a outro)
32 Hey Jude (Past Masters version)
Side Five:
33 Birthday
34 Yer Blues
35 Mother Nature's Son
36 Everybody's Got Something to Hide Except for Me and My Monkey
37 Sexy Sadie
38 Helter Skelter
39 Long, Long, Long
Side Six:
40 Revolution #1
41 Honey Pie
42 Savoy Truffle
43 Cry Baby Cry (with the Can You Take Me Back outro)
44 Revolution #9
45 Good Night (Anthology 3 version)

With a fair bit of cheating, we end up with a nice additional disc of music, and with 45 tunes, beat The Clash by 12 years to the first rock n' roll triple album. I really like the second disc, since it doesn't mess up the other two and has some really great stuff. Any thoughts?

I guess not, looks like meanmistermustard is going to have to wait until Abbey Road to be on an album.

Yes, you forgot that All Things Must Pass was a triple album, therefore The Clash didn't make the first rock and roll triple album.
