'OANS'. The sound of Ringo's drums is superb and all the weird oddities help make it into a fun track; if listening to 'IATM' give me the full 8-minute version as why listen to just 6 minutes, might as well go all-in and revel in it all.

Reworked/rejected solo albums - 'Red Rose Speedway ' or 'Somewhere In England '?

If we're talking about the rejected versions, definitely Somewhere In England .

I would say Press To Play , only because I have heard that Off The Ground is a little bit preachy, and Paul drops an F-bomb (to prove something?)


For Beatles For Sale , it was going to be either Mr Moonlight or Leave My Kitten Alone , so which would you have kept?

While I do like Mr Moonlight , Leave My Kitten Alone couldn't not be my choice; it's got great energy, and it's beyond catchy. I'm scratching my head at how it didn't make it on in the first place.

I’m Looking Through you, that song gets better with each listen. 

Beatles posters or Beatles T-Shirts?
