Im not sure that there are any i would swap despite there being some really good alternate versions, cant think of one. Whilst the acoustic WMGGW is gorgeous and would a real highlight if released on The White Album , the heavier version with Claptons guitar work, George's vocal, Pauls piano and harmonies and Ringo's drums is rightly hailed as a classic and the one i would opt for.

The really major change I could see in a track was in I'm Looking Through You .

I don't think I prefer the Anthology versions of any songs.

I thought the most interesting Anthology songs are WMGGW and the demo's of SFF. Most of the stuff sounds nearly the same as the final versions.

"Your Mother Should Know "  is one where I definitely like the Anthology version better.  I guess because Paul's vocals are so raw and untouched, yeah..   a-hard-days-night-paul-7

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

The part where he says "quit singing with your mouth" I think he was referring to George. Any other ideas on to whom he was referring to?

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 I think he's talking to George..  but I thought he said "With ciggy in mouth"..  both are kinda weird.  I learned something today!  a-hard-days-night-paul-10

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

Greetings, first post here.

 

I don't know if I would have chosen it for the final album over the completed version, but I think that the alternate Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da is interesting.

Welcome! The alternate take of Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da sounds more "reggaeish" to me.

JPM-Fangirl trousered in another thread 

<big snip>

The acoustic version of While My Guitar Gently Weeps is incredible. Why did they drop the third verse?

YES 

I mean, normally, I'm the sort of person who thinks that whatever was on the record was what was intended by the divine Beatles and therefore right. a-hard-days-night-george-10 

But this is a huge exception to that-- maybe it's because I'm a sucker for acoustic ballads and demo-y things, but this version of WMGGW is just so much... better. In fact I never truly appreciated what a great song it was till I heard the acoustic version (shoot me-- I don't like the WA version much-- it's not gently weeping enough for me, more like loudly wailing). 

I suppose Not Guilty on White Album would've been nice too... but no, he could only have two a side, and it couldn't replace any of the ones already on the album. Sigh. 

And now I've got to go listen to Leave My Kitten Alone and That Means A Lot ... 

The following people thank Beatlebug for this post:

I only have the Highlights, so I'm not familiar with most of them, but I love the Anthology version of While My Guitar Gently Weeps . But I've already said that before, as quoted a few posts earlier... a-hard-days-night-john-3
