A Collection of Beatles Oldies... But Goldies - Extra Tracks
« on: September 04, 2012, 08:49:42 PM »

That gives me an idea. What if "This Boy" was added to "A Collection of Beatles Oldies... But Goldies", especially the Larry William song cover called "Bad Boy"?

This was a strange album.  Mostly non-lp songs that EMI released for the Christmas season in 1966.  Paperback Writer was included but Rain wasn't. 

Yellow Submarine and Eleanor Rigby were singles but also were on the Revolver album released in August of 1966.  Hardly "Oldies."

This Boy would have been a good track for this album. I'll Get You would have also - it was the B side if She Loves You and wasn't on any U.K. album.

If they added Thank You Girl, I'm Down, She's A Woman, Yes It Is, Long Tall Sally, I Call Your Name, Slow Down and Matchbox, it could have made a nice double album.

The tracks selected were all #1 hits in UK, plus the popular ballads "Yesterday" and "Michelle", and "Bad Boy" that hadn't been released in UK yet.

True, but that doesn't stop me from tweaking these types of records in my head.  The geek in me.  glassesslip

It also didn't stop me from buying the Dr. Ebbetts mono and stereo needledrop.  ;)
