I'm listening through the anthologies (again!) and I was wondering what other people's favorite tracks are. (Personally, I love them all and it's hilarious hearing them goofing off and messing around, like in You've Got To Hide Your Love Away Take 5: "Paul's broken a glass...").

was thinkin' of spinnin' these 3 in succession, next time I get the chance...  perhaps when I get around to Spring Cleaning...  'bin awhile since I've listened to them, but here are the highlights for me...

 

'Anthology 1 '  -  'Free As A Bird '

'Anthology 2 '  -  this is the best volume of the three, in my opinion, and I couldn't decide on a favourite so it's a three-way tie between:  'I'm Looking Through You ', 'If You've Got Trouble ' & 'Tomorrow Never Knows '

'Anthology 3 '  -  'All Things Must Pass '

 

as enjoyable as it is to listen to these, I can't help but feeling disappointment in the selection...  while there are gems abound, to be certain, many songs were all ready attributed to alternate versions in the past, most notably on the BBC recordings...  did we really need another version of 'Ticket To Ride ', 'I Feel Fine ', or 'Love Me Do ', etc.?  while other unheard tracks and gems remained locked away in the vaults?...  I listen to Beatlegs much more often than this collection...  no inferior edits and volumes with noticeably better selection than the usual standard fare found here...:-)

My favourites, in no particular order, would be:

If You've Got Trouble : Ringo! And it's not a particularly bad song either, and it's quite a good riff.

And Your Bird Can Sing : Honestly any incarnation of this song would be a good incarnation.

One After 909 : Good groove, and as the Let it Be is a good song, that prooves that it is a good song as both versions are good.

Only A Northern Song : practically the YS version, but without the overdubs and with an arguably better vocal part, and a stereo mix - what more could you want? It's a precursor to This Song, really.

I Am The Walrus : see above

Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da: a great interpretation of a catchy song.

I'll Be Back : Harmonies! Also a heavier version suits it a bit better imo

I Wanna Be Your Man : An incredibly good lie performance - I almost prefer it over the original, and the original is in my top 10 Beatles songs.

Come And Get It : Fun tune

I’ll just list a few for now, but these stick out for me.

Ain’t She Sweet - amazing energy and an exciting John vocal.

Eight Days A Week (Complete) - the opening harmonising before the guitar kicks in is heaven.

That Means A Lot - An unused Beatles song still packs a serious punch.

Eleanor Rigby (Strings Only) - I love hearing instrumentals of Beatles music, and this melody is beautifully haunting.

Julia - See above. We get an instrumental and I treasure it.

I’m Only Sleeping (Take 1) - Just love the sound of this 

Happiness Is A Warm Gun - John’s angry guitar playing on full display, 1.03 particularly is excellent

Sexy Sadie - Another perspective of a great song.

I like a lot of the early Quarrymen tracks. Reminds me of a simple time

That's my favourite Beatles period.

Their version of That we'll be the day is so cute. 

In Spite Of All The Danger is my fav from Anthology 1

"I Need You by George Harrison"

Me too. In Spite Of All The Danger is a really fantastic song, I wish they'd kept performing it and done a proper version. 

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, boys. He was a valuable participant on the track team. He is one of Freeport's great contributors to the recording world. As for the immediate future, QuarryMan has no plans, but will take life as it comes.

Not sure if "cute" is the word that I'd used, but the Buddy Holly influence can't be underscored here...  'That'll Be The Day' only teases the real fruits and, after many years of acquired "wisdom", the obscure 'Mailman, Bring Me No Blues' later on drives the point home further while it may very well be the most "important" addition in that it pays homage to one of their Major Influences...  one who doesn't get nearly enough credit for his contribution to Popular Music Today and, Forever...:-)
