Speaking to all Beatles fans, but especially USA fans. I suppose it was in the 80's when "brutally" I learned half my Beatles collection was wrong ! I'd been misled. Like most Americans until The Beatles were issued on CD in their original British versions, I had little idea how much Capitol had changed the album tracklists up through Revolver. Actually through Mystery Tour !! What do you mean there's no such thing as Yesterday & Today or The Beatles 2nd album !!! Some albums like Revolver are much better in their original UK versions. Lennon & McCartney each had 5 songs & Harrison had 3, Ringo 1. But on the USA version Lennon only had 2 songs left !!! On the other hand Magical Mystery Tour added 4 songs on the USA version, changing it from an EP into a full fledged album. They even did "arguably" a good job in track selection. Making Mystery Tour song for song another very strong album. It's a mixed bag, sometimes the USA version trumps the original UK version, like Mystery Tour, & sometimes the USA version utterly destroyed the album, such as Revolver. Which reduced Lennon to a paltry 2 songs. The other good thing about the Capitol versions is it took an actual 12 Beatles studio albums & turned it into around 16 studio albums. The actual number of Beatles "studio" albums is important why ?, In the context of this discussion ? Because after 50+ years of listening, it stays fresher if you have a few more to rotate & choose from. 16 good albums gets less boring than 12 over a lifetime of listening. Provided it's not duplicate material. We have zillions of Beatles compilation albums, but all they do is recycle the same songs, as hits, rock songs, love songs or whatever. But now in 2017, having access to everything, the BBC tracks, The Anthology albums, the Past Masters, anybody can redo the idea of the Capitol alternate tracklists, but do a better job now, because we have a lot more tracks to utilize now. Long story short, instead of 12 studio albums, by adding & rearranging, I get around 20-21 studio albums, depending how I do it. Some of the changes in my personal collection are this. 1. I add an altered enhanced version of the Decca Audition, " the Pete Best" Beatles album.. I add the EMI version of Love Me Do & Besame Mucho, as well as Ain't She Sweet & Cry For A Shadow, & drop the 4 weakest cuts, giving me a much stronger album 2. Just like Capitol USA & Canada, I construct a faux Beatles "2nd album" by using early non LP singles like She Loves You & I'll Get You, & early outtakes like One after 909 & How Do You Do it. 3. I split Beatles For Sale into 2 separate albums. First I add the non LP single I Feel Fine/She's A Woman & the 4 song Long Tall Sally EP & Leave My Kitten Alone & an "enhanced" version of another outtake. Then original songs on one & the covers on a 2nd disc. About 11-12 songs each. 4. I take the 12-14 best BBC tracks the Beatles never did on a regular album. Judging them by fidelity-clarity & performance & get another "new" Beatles album. Some of the tracks like "I got a woman" "Honeymoon song" " Glad All Over" "Hippy Hippy Shake" "Some Other Guy" " Lend Me Your Comb" make a great quasi studio album, of stuff they never recorded otherwise. 5. There isin't quite enough using 65 outtakes & singles & B sides, That Means A Lot, I'm Down, Day Tripper.. so I just add those to Help & Rubber Soul. 6. Early 68 album... I call it Beatles 68 or Yellow Submarine or whatever. But I take the 4 new YS tracks, Hey Bulldog, All Together Now, etc. & Add the singles Lady Madonna, Inner Light & Across The Universe, that's 7 new tracks. Then I reach back for the Paperback Writer/Rain single, gives me 9. . I personally use Christmas Time is here again for 10. The recently discovered Harrison tune " Hello Mary Bee" will make 11, if I can ever find a copy.. there are a couple more tracks available from 67-early 68. " You know my name" & "Shirley's Wild accordian" & Jessie's Dream... Actually those 2 can be added to Mystery Tour, & I can lift " Baby You're A Rich Man" for Yellow Submarine ( as the Beatles originally intended, which would make 12 tracks 7 It's sacrilege I know, but adding a few very good outtakes, Sour Milk Sea, Not Guilty, New Mary Jane, Junk & Step Inside Love & Circles... Gives me a total of 38 White album songs, including Hey Jude/Revolution. This allows me to redo it as not 2, but 3 separate 1968 studio albums, + "early 68"- or Yellow Sub making 4 1968 studio albums. 8 And finally, it's a bit too raw, most of it, but with some Protools & editing.... A 2nd Let it Be album, or perhaps just a bonus 2nd disc.... Teddy Boy, Mailman Blues, a longer edited Dig It, I lost My Little Girl, All Things Must Pass...Shake Rattle & Roll.... There's clearly 15-20 tracks that can be assembled & edited, into something approaching a listenable, but raw album.. So that's 12 studio albums turned into 20. Clearly 2-3 of them get a bit weak, but after 5o years, it stays fresher rotating 20 albums instead of 12. Finally OP note. My dream would be one last Beatles LP the Threetles reunion, but there just isn't enough... There are only 4 released studio reunion songs with at least 3 Beatles. If they ever release 1-2 more from the archives, it might become possible to Cobble an 8-10 song EP-Album, but not as of now. Unless it's just a fake comp with solo songs So would you, or do you stretch you're Beatles collection ? How could you improve the Capitol tracklists ? Or what's a better way to stretch the available songs & albums ? Do you agree they hit a home run with the USA Mystery Tour ? Is there a way to Redo "Yesterday & Today" without totally gutting Revolver ?
