These lovely titles are a small part of a recent collection that I will be listing over the next few months. Some extremely rare and wonderful titles amongst them...

Each song on the sprawling double album The Beatles is an entity to itself, as the band touches on anything and everything it can. This makes for a frustratingly scattershot record or a singularly gripping musical experience, depending on your view, but what makes the so-called White Album interesting is its mess. Never before had a rock record been so self-reflective, or so ironic; the Beach Boys send-up "Back in the U.S.S.R." and the British blooze parody "Yer Blues" are delivered straight-faced, so it's never clear if these are affectionate tributes or wicked satires. Lennon turns in two of his best ballads with "Dear Prudence" and "Julia"; scours the Abbey Road vaults for the musique concrète collage "Revolution 9"; pours on the schmaltz for Ringo's closing number, "Good Night"; celebrates the Beatles cult with "Glass Onion"; and, with "Cry Baby Cry," rivals Syd Barrett. McCartney doesn't reach quite as far, yet his songs are stunning -- the music hall romp "Honey Pie," the mock country of "Rocky Raccoon," the ska-inflected "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da," and the proto-metal roar of "Helter Skelter." Clearly, the Beatles' two main songwriting forces were no longer on the same page, but neither were George and Ringo. Harrison still had just two songs per LP, but it's clear from "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," the canned soul of "Savoy Truffle," the haunting "Long, Long, Long," and even the silly "Piggies" that he had developed into a songwriter who deserved wider exposure.

Tracks:  Back in the U.S.S.R./ Dear Prudence/ Glass onion/ Ob-la-di, ob-la-da/ Wild honey pie/ The continuing story of Bungalow Bill/ While my guitar gently weeps/ Happiness is a warm gun/ Martha my dear/ I'm so tired/ Blackbird/ Piggies/ Rocky racoon Don't pass me by/ Why don't we do it in the road?/ 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/ Revolution I/  Honey pie/ Savoy truffle/ Cry baby cry/ Revolution 9/ Good night.  

There are a few light spindle marks on labels. Records have some light scuff marks that cause a few light crackles throughout mostly noticeable between tracks. The beginning of side 2 album one has a very light scratch that causes one light pop at very beginning of track. Becuae of this I have graded records at VG++. Gloss gatefold cover has ring wear and some light marks and is in VG+ condition.
