Baby you can drive my car…

Yeah, yeah, yeah…this is the best Beatles compilation, ever…EVER! I should know, I’ve tried and my amateurish foray into a decent Beatles song cycle has finally been put to rest by this…yes…masterpiece. Access to the master tapes and original producer (the producers’ dad, George Martin) plus two years of labor probably helped a bit.

Some people don’t like it as it represents a significant remix or revision of the Beatles work and so is seen as sacrilegious, kind of like trying to improve upon the Koran. I think that's silly-what I know is that the last listen I had of Help! via CD sounded like crap, like it was recorded in 1965 or something. I don’t know how Mr. Giles Martin did it, but everything on this CD sounds as if were recorded yesterday--a huge achievement, highly recommended.

P.S. OK-so I've listened to this hear and there and while it has all the notable tunes it's missing my personal favorite 'Everbody's Got Something to Hide (Except Me and My Monkey), even so I still give it very hgh marks.

I laughed outloud when I saw your words - "Baby, you can drive my car...." I put that song on most CD's I burn! Gotta love those Beatles. I'll check out the new CD soon. Thanks!

mark: actually it's a 2006 release, but new to me too

susank: it's one of those phrases that's forever burned into ones circuits, it'll probably be my last gasp as I lay dying.

That is a serious omission - Everybody's Got Something to Hide, such a great song.
