I’ve heard several people talking about what an inferior track Apple Scruffs is, and I notice you have it dead last.  All this surprises me, because I’ve always loved it.  I’ve also heard people criticizing George’s harmonica playing, and I won’t quibble with that.  But I just think the whole thing sounds great.  The acoustic and harmonica together sounds so thick.  The melody’s good, and the lyrics are interesting for a Beatle fan.  I don’t see what’s wrong with it.  It’s one of my favorite tracks on the album.

The following people thank forn for this post:

Imho, Apple Scruffs should have been the b-side of a Beatles single in 1969. It’s a lightweight, slightly goofy song, but as essentially a love letter to the fans, I think it would have been quite successful as a Beatle cut–and I always thought the harmonica was a good laugh! The idea of ranking the album tracks is interesting, but not sure I can do it. I love this album, love George. If anyone mentions a track they don’t care for, I’d just be tempted to sit here and make a case for it, since I think they all have merits.

I’ll try and list a few favorites, though, focusing on tracks I feel don’t get enough attention: I’d Have You Anytime , Let It Down , Run Of The Mill , Beware Of Darkness , The Ballad of Sir Frankie Crisp (Let it Roll), Isn’t a Pity? v. 2, Awaiting On You All , Art of Dying. I feel like most of the remaining tracks don’t need me to sing their praises, as the hits are well-known and loved. I’m curious what other people’s favorites (and less favorites) are on this album, since there are so many to pick from and so easy for deep cuts to fall through the cracks on a double/triple album.

Beware Of Darkness ” and “All Things Must Pass ” is shockingly low on the list. I’d place those above “Wah-Wah “.
