Fun and Games with The White Album

Posted by **Beatles Fan Robert** on Jul 6, 2017 at 8:04:03 AM:

If you could be George Martin in 1968, and had full control of the White Album track selection, what would you keep, and what would you reject? The possibilties are endless, but here my lineup. It is difficult to do, since what we have is what I have known for almost 50 years.

Anyhow, here goes:

Back In The USSR
Dear Prudence
While My Guitar Gently Weeps
Martha My Dear
Blackbird
I Will
Julia

Birthday
Yer Blues
Mother Nature's Son
Everybody's Got Something To Hide Except Me And My Monkey
Sexy Sadie
Helter Skelter
Long, Long, Long

Side on is still mellow, and side two has most of the harder, rockier stuff. Gone are the ditties and short bursts of filler. Ditched are Rev #1 and Rev #9 - the single 45 had the definitive version. Goodbye the schmaltz of Honey Pie and Good night.

Anyhow, it is fun to play producer, and anyone can choose their version.
