This is not a "White Album as a single disc" thread. Rather, this thread is to post what your optimal version of the White Album . Please do not post "Revolution 9 for every track!". Try to be serious, although your album can be as unlikely as you want. You can use songs recorded in the February 68 sessions (Lady Madonna , Hey Bulldog , Across The Universe , The Inner Light ) and the later sessions. You can add or subtract any songs you want.

Sorry, I'll be a boring stick-in-the-mud and say I can't improve on perfection...

The White Album is what it is.  To add or remove anything would take away from it in a negative fashion.  The 30 songs on it are what the members of the Beatles were feeling at that particular time.  Revolution 9 included.  Even if Paul and George Martin didn't want it there, Lennon did. 

 

The only time I can understand people adding songs to an album would be Strawberry Fields and Penny Lane to Sgt Pepper , because they were supposed to be on the album.  The Pepper sessions started with those 2 recordings if I recall.

The White Album is my favourite but I would have left Revolution No 9 out.  It would have left more room for Junk!

It would be just an E.P for me: Back In The USSR , Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da .  While My Guitar Gently Weeps , Don't Pass Me By , Revolution 1

Don't like any of the others.

Let's see. I'm including the 12 bar original as I feel an instrumental track would suit the album's eclectic nature and it being 3 years old the Beatls' random spirit at the time.

1. Back In The U.S.S.R

2. Dear Prudence

3. Glass Onion

4. Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da

5. Wild Honey Pie

6. 12 Bar Original

7. While My Guitar Gently Weeps

8. Happiness Is A Warm Gun

9. I'm So Tired

10. Don't Pass Me By

11. I Will

12. Martha My Dear

13. Julia

14. Long, Long, Long

15. Revolution

Disc 2

1. Birthday

2. Lady Madonna

3. While My Guitar Gently Weeps (Acoustic)

4. Yer Blues

5. Mother Nature's Son

6. Helter Skelter

7. Everybody's Got Something To Hide Except For Me And My Monkey

8. Revolution 1

9. Revolution 9

10. Sexy Sadie

11. Hey Jude

12. Honey Pie

13. Cry Baby Cry

14. Good Night

Hidden track: Why Don't We Do It In The Road?

It seems very odd to add 12 Bar Original to The Beatles but I digress.

Here's mine, I just replaced the tracks I am not fond of with tracks from either Yellow Submarine , Abbey Road , or Let It Be , as well as their singles:

Side A:

Back In The USSR

Dear Prudence

Glass Onion

Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da

Lady Madonna

The Continuing Story Of Bungalow Bill

While My Guitar Gently Weeps

Happiness Is A Warm Gun

Side B:

Hey Bulldog

I'm So Tired

Blackbird

It's All Too Much

Rocky Raccoon

Come Together

Why Don't We Do It In The Road

Something

I Want You (She's So Heavy)

Side C:

Birthday

Yer Blues

Maxwell's Silver Hammer

Everybody's Got Something To Hide (Except Me And My Monkey) *always felt this song needed some parentheses

Sexy Sadie

Helter Skelter

I've Got A Feeling

Side C:

Revolution 1 *medley with Revolution

Revolution *medley with Revolution 1

Savoy Truffle

Cry Baby Cry

Golden Slumbers /Carry That Weight /The End *counted as one track here

Hey Jude *I don't know why they didn't end The Beatles with this song in the first place, it's the perfect closer

Why are there songs that were recorded in 1969 on an album released in 1968? You might as well just shove anything on and call it whatever.

My perfect version of the White Album is what we were given, I just couldn't imagine changing any of the songs and I don't see why i'd want to. The reason why the White Album is so brilliant is because it's so varied and all over the place - I wouldn't want to tamper with that a-hard-days-night-george-10

I say we put the album on 2 45's.

Side A:
Wild Honey Pie (Extended to a length of 5 minutes)

Side B:
Revolution 9 Pt. 1

Side C:
Revolution 9 Pt. 2

Side D:
Good Night

The Album should be pressed for record flippers, making one disk Side 1 and Side 4, and the other disk Side 2 and Side 3. This way both parts I've Revolution 9 will be on the same disk.

A sleeve with only a booklet inside. The booklet as a list of all the song names.

Then the booklet instructs the fans to imagine what the songs would of sounded like.

Howbout we just rename all the songs with white titles? "White Honey Pie ", "White Onion", "White My Guitar Gently Weeps", "Yer Whites", "Good Whight", "White Don't We Do It In the Road", "Whitebird", "Happiness is a White Gun" and a bunch of others that don't convert so conveniently

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

That might have worked in 1942 but this is 1968, the same year that the censored eleven was banned. If The Beatles did this, black people would become very offended and we'd have them burning records faster than you can say "we're bigger than Jesus".

I think it would've been great if The Beatles used this tracklisting for The Beatles, although I can understand why they didn't:
