Specifically, the ones that you make. Just for the fun of it!
When Let It Be was released in May 1970, it was The Beatles thirteenth studio album. But what if The Beatles didn't break up, continued to record as a group, and released a fourteenth studio album in 1971? It might've sounded something like this:
The Beatles - XlV
02 My Sweet Lord
03 Too Many People
04 Jealous Guy
05 It Don't Come Easy
06 Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey
08 What Is Life
09 Maybe I'm Amazed
10 Instant Karma
11 In The Back Seat Of My Car
12 All Things Must Pass
Like I noted above, it's all in fun. Even if the Beatles did record an album in 1971, it's impossible to tell which songs would've ended up on solo albums and which ones would've been used for a Beatles' album. This is just a collection of some of the best tracks from that particular time frame, assembled to create a fictional album. I think it is a strong, entertaining compilation, though.
For a lot of my comps, I like to burn them to CD and give them away to family, friends, and co-workers. I even type out title sheets and use jewel cases. This particular comp isn't entirely finished and I would appreciate your feedback in completing it. I have two unanswered questions:
1) For Track 3, I used "Too Many People" because I felt it was the strongest song for that particular slot. It's also a favorite. Of these three songs, which one would you choose for Track 3:
A. Too Many People
B. Every Night
C. Another Day
D. None of the above (Do you have a suggestion?)
2) For the sequencing on Side 2, would you go with:
A) "Instant Karma" then "In The Back Seat Of My Car"
B) "In The Back Seat Of My Car" then "Instant Karma"
C) An alternate sequence
Thank you for your input. I hope you give this Beatles' comp a listen and enjoy it. Any feedback is appreciated!
