Does anyone know where I can at least hear the acoustic version of 'Nobody Loves You (When You're Down And Out)' that was issued on the 2005 reissue/remaster? That whole series bypassed me. 

I should probably at some point hunt down 'Acoustic' yet every time I go near it it's extortionately expensive (tho looking at Wiki I probably have it all already).

The Anthology outtake (take 19) is far better than the overdubbed and overproduced regular release (a common theme I have for most of 'Walls And Bridges ').

'Menlove Avenue' has a different outtake to 'Anthology' and 'Acoustic'.

I have "Acoustic". I don't see the song listed. What am I missing here?

Nothing. I've managed to connect a post with two very different points into one and got it wrong. 'NLY(WYDAO)' isn't on 'Acoustic'.

Ah, ok. I'm not worried about you. When you ask if Please Please Me is on Abbey Road , then I will start being worried about you.

I consider this one of Lennon's greatest songs. Poignant that was his last track on Walls And Bridges before his hiatus. I like the Walls And Bridges big sound treatment. I liked Long and Winding Road too. Totally with John on that.

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

Agree it’s one of his best. Totally him in terms of being cynical and on the downbeat side.
