    Beatles - Don't Let Me Down (Get Back), I Am the Walrus (Hello Goodbye), The Inner Light (Lady Madonna)
    Hollies - Signs That Will Never Change (Non-album B-side of "Carrie-Ann")
    Buckinghams - Foreign Policy (Susan)
    Steppenwolf - For Madmen Only (Non-album B-side of "Ride With Me". 8:46 of Varese-like feedback and guitar noise.)
    Johnny Rivers - You Dig (B-side of "Secret Agent Man". To dissuade radio DJs from playing the "wrong side" of the record, the timing simply said "Over four minutes." It's actually 6:22. A slow burn blues jam with Larry Knechtel getting down and dirty on Hammond organ. Inexplicably, the album version is only 2:09.)

    One jumped out at me---Paintbox by Pink Floyd. I am not the biggest Floyd fan, but I listened to them a lot when I was younger, and that is a cool early Floyd song. Interesting choice.
