"I love \"Old Brown Shoe\" (I have a feeling Macca had a LOT to do with making that track come alive, not just his stunning bass line, but giving George a whole lot of ideas for turning an ordinary [in fact, rather pedestrian] song into a fabulous record.)" This is not actually a review. This is correcting Jake's assertion this is Paul McCartney playing the bass line, because in fact you will find Harrison stating in interview that it was in fact Harrison playing the bass line for this track. And it can be heard in the demo of the song that he is doing it as well, simply doubling the guitar riff. If there's an indication of what The Beatles would sound like if you split them into two factions, it is the The Ballad of John and Yoko/Old Brown Shoe 45. Side One would be The Beatles as John and Paul. Side Two would be The Beatles as George & Ringo, because it is primarily those two performing on Shoe. (With backing vocals from McCartney/Lennon) . In all honesty (and review) - the musicianship on Shoe far excels that on Ballad. Better drummer, better guitarist, and ironically enough, an equal Bass player ;)

This is actually one of my favorite Beatles albums. I love the progression of Side One from early to late. I love \"Old Brown Shoe\" (I have a feeling Macca had a LOT to do with making that track come alive, not just his stunning bass line, but giving George a whole lot of ideas for turning an ordinary [in fact, rather pedestrian] song into a fabulous record.) I love \"Rain\" but I really do think it should be remixed so the vocals are all centered. I love \"Hey Jude\" needless to say - even though it\'s bordering on being overplayed in my mind, I can still come back to it every six months and fall in love with it again.

too manny people make the mistake of thinking its the same hey jude and again. the difference is the sound is more tacky on hey jude. plus the song i should've known better has a short pause on the beatles again and not on the album hey jude

Pretty good collection of songs. It's not really an album or anything, so points marked down for that. On a side note, Can't Buy Me Love and I Should Have Known Better are here because they hadn't appeared on a Captiol Records Beatles album before.

Kind of a catch-all record, Hey Jude was released very late in the Beatles career, and it collects several singles and B-sides that never made it onto "official" albums. As a record though, it works quite well, and given the Beatles genius, especially in the area of creating exquisite and ultra-progressive singles, it comes as no suprise. "Paperback Writer" works particularly well, not having aged at all in the three years after its release. The bass guitar sound on this record is especially revolutionary. A couple of recent tracks, "Old Brown Shoe" and "The Ballad of John And Yoko," make their vinyl debut here, and as usual give the consumer excellent value for the money. "Old Brown Shoe" (originally slated for Joe Cocker to record) is one of George Harrison's great lost classics, and the Beatles ensemble playing on this track belies the tension that was prevalent during the group's final days. — Matthew Greenwald
