Lucky for us in this day & age, where we don’t have to rely on a Disc anymore.  I can make my White Album 4 discs if I liked.  The world is in the palm of my hands (in my iPod/iPhone) a-hard-days-night-paul-11

True, but this thread is about the White Album on a single disc, not a single rectangle.

Adhering slavishly to the 14 track, 2 George 1 Ringo vocal I go –

SIDE 1

USSR

Prudence

Warm Gun

Piggies

Rocky

Sadie

Julia

SIDE 2

Onion

Monkey

I Will

Guitar Weeps

Cry Baby

Revo 1

Goodnight.

 

My 16 tracker with Don’t Pass on side 1 at track 5 and Long Long on side 2 at track 6 gives Ringo and George one extra each and importantly a Ringo composition. Sides time out at 24.30 and 24.17 respectively.

Unless Paul McCartney knocks on my door I am unlikely to be impressed.

Side 1:

Back In The U.S.S.R.

Dear Prudence

Mother Nature’s Son

I Will

Sexy Sadie

Cry Baby Cry

Julia

 

Side 2:

Glass Onion

Happiness Is A Warm Gun

Yer Blues

Helter Skelter

Savoy Truffle

While My Guitar Gently Weeps

Good Night

 

I feel like having Paul’s and 2 of John’s ballads in side 1 (except USSR, just because it’s a good opener), and then having the hard hitting sounds and themes for side 2 would be effective.

(Also don’t @me for including Savoy Truffle , it’s a good song)

Good list @Jonnie08. Yeah I went with Monkey instead of Skelter as the heavy one and my version is a bit Lennon heavy too. I like Savoy and it only missed out in favour of Onion which I put in the same groove. 

Unless Paul McCartney knocks on my door I am unlikely to be impressed.

Nice running orders @Paul Prole and @Jonnie08. J8, your side 2 is Harrison heavy. I wrote somewhere on here that a way forward for the Beatles would have been splitting the White up into John, Paul, George and band/Ringo sides. After all the inserts were of each individual Beatle, not band pictures. That format would have given each artist more room to breathe.

 

Also, something that happened to me this last year is my concentration on the White Deluxe Session tracks. For instance, on this version of Martha My Dear , Paul seems to be reaching out to me in a way I can’t explain (and didn’t feel back in 1968). Maybe it’s because I’m a new dog owner but I would for sure include that song as the opener on side 2. “Don’t forget me Martha My Dear “.a-hard-days-night-paul-8

I´ve been away for some time from the forum – sorry.

It seems impossible for me to reduce the White Album to one disc – too many songs I love would have to be let out – painfully.

So the decision the release a double album was the best made.

However – I could easily dispense of “Revolution 9 ” … and “Wild Honey Pie ” … but soon it´s getting tough.

Short tracks like “Why Don´t We Do It”, “I Will ” (both great songs) … and even the non-mentioned snippet “Can You Take Me Back …” would feel to me as heavy losses. I´m not particularily fond of “Bungalow Bill” and “Rocky Raccoon ” – and also George´s “Piggies ” and “Savoy Truffle ” are not the greatest efforts, but “Long, Long, Long ” is a marvel … so even if I eliminate the songs mentioned above I´m sticking at 24 …
I´d like to see “Not Guilty ” instead of “Revolution 9 ” … and if John would have been offended than I´ll take his “What´s The New Mary Jane” in addition.

Impossible to reduce further for me … not now when I know all these pieces of art.
