1  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / The Beatles Survivor #9: Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band on: Today at 09:21:32 AM
We find ourselves at what many believe is the "Toppermost of the Poppermost".


Quote
Sgt. Pepper is regarded by musicologists as an early concept album that advanced the use of extended form in popular music while continuing the artistic maturation seen on the Beatles' preceding releases. It has been described as one of the first art rock LPs, aiding the development of progressive rock, and credited with marking the beginning of the Album Era. An important work of British psychedelia, the album incorporates a range of stylistic influences, including vaudeville, circus, music hall, avant-garde, and Western and Indian classical music. In 2003, the Library of Congress placed Sgt. Pepper in the National Recording Registry, honouring the work as "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".[1] That same year, Rolling Stone magazine ranked it number one in its list of the "500 Greatest Albums of All Time". As of 2011, it has sold more than 32 million copies worldwide, making it one of the best-selling albums in history. Professor Kevin J. Dettmar, writing in the Oxford Encyclopedia of British Literature, described it as "the most important and influential rock and roll album ever recorded"

The odds and ends collection. That label can be misleading since both volumes have some very VERY important tracks.

We will only include tracks from the collection which were recorded between 1962 - 1966. We will not include the German versions of "She Loves You" or "I Want To Hold Your Hand".
additionally we will include the 1965/66 tracks which can be found on Vol. 2. We will split the remaining tracks down the middle and create two tribes. The "Mersey" tribe and the "London" tribe. Each round we will vote off a track from each tribe.  I also shuffled "I Call Your Name" into the London tribe because it fit that aesthetic more.

Past Masters was originally issued as two separate CDs Past Masters, Volume One and Past Masters, Volume Two, on 7 March 1988. The two volumes were included in The Beatles Box Set. A double LP set, titled Past Masters, Volumes One & Two (also titled simply Past Masters), was subsequently released in the US on 24 October 1988 and in the UK on 10 November 1988.

The double set was re-released on CD, titled simply Past Masters, on 9 September 2009, as part of the remastering of the original Beatles catalogue, and was included in The Beatles stereo box set. This release includes stereo mixes of both "From Me to You" and "Thank You Girl", whereas the original 1988 issue contained the two tracks in mono. The The Beatles in Mono box set, released at the same time, includes the album Mono Masters, which contains a similar track list of dedicated mono mixes.

Then we pick between the 2?

Fun idea. But I think after this I am ready to move on to Sgt. Pepper.

Mersey: From Me To You is iconic, but not a survivor track.
I Wanna Hold Your Hand is synonymous with "British Invasion" but....

I love the chords and the energy of She Loves You. So that gets my vote for SURVIVOR.

London: I didn't want Paperback Writer in the top 3, so obviously I'm not voting for that... I feel fine is great too. But it's not top material IMO.

I love RAIN. I love the lyrics. I love the production. I love the backwards vocals. It's everything that is great about Revolver condensed into one track.

No, meant do we vote against 2 songs, i.e. is it soon when we vote against single song? In special BBs Survivors, we went with 2 tracks, then towards the end it shifted to single song ousting.

We will do this like normal rounds.

It's a tough choice between I Feel Fine and Day Tripper. I feel like they are both neck in neck as far as overall qualities. I think it's the innovative use of feedback at the start of I Feel Fine that will keep it from getting my sad vote this round.

Yes I know. It's done for balance sake.

Now I'm curious - do we vote against 2 songs till the end, i.e. Final Round would be 2, not 3 songs?

I figured we would keep it uniform with other rounds and keep it with a final three; voting for the favorite at the end.

2 Mr. Desper: We'll agree to disagree then. I do think TM is stupid. They say it helped them but it may just be in their minds. Akin to placebo effect. That said, agree with your p.o.v. about beliefs not being germane/ relevant to work (ethics). It's Mike's business, we shouldn't care what he believes in, we must be apathetic about it.

Whether it's in their minds or a placebo what does that matter if it works?

Besides, I think most practitioners of TM would agree that it is all in their minds and that is THE POINT.

Thank you girl, but no thank you. This one tries hard, but is kind of lackluster. I do like the "and all I gotta do" part the best.
I'm not down with I'm Down.

KDS, it was for a TV special in 1990. John would have been 50 years old and it was 10 years since his death.

Mersey: Slow Down
London: I'm Down


I remember watching that special when  it aired. Some  of the performance were good. Others were embarassing. Sean Lennon did Dear Prudence if I recall, and it was pretty good for the time.

The file says "Long Lost Album". Date: 1991. He sings the lead too. So what do you think, KDS?

Does it sound different from the video I posted above?

I Call Your Name
Did you hear it by Ringo? His voice fits the song & you may like the "hard rock" guitar sound. 3D

I dont recall a Ringo version.  Was that as a solo artist, or an alternate version?

Travelin Wilburys with Ringo guest drumming I think is what she is referencing.

Wait, are we not doing the 1967-70 songs from Past Masters? 

Yep. After Abby Road.

The odds and ends collection. That label can be misleading since both volumes have some very VERY important tracks.

We will only include tracks from the collection which were recorded between 1962 - 1966. We will not include the German versions of "She Loves You" or "I Want To Hold Your Hand".
additionally we will include the 1965/66 tracks which can be found on Vol. 2. We will split the remaining tracks down the middle and create two tribes. The "Mersey" tribe and the "London" tribe. Each round we will vote off a track from each tribe.  I also shuffled "I Call Your Name" into the London tribe because it fit that aesthetic more.


Quote
Past Masters was originally issued as two separate CDs Past Masters, Volume One and Past Masters, Volume Two, on 7 March 1988. The two volumes were included in The Beatles Box Set. A double LP set, titled Past Masters, Volumes One & Two (also titled simply Past Masters), was subsequently released in the US on 24 October 1988 and in the UK on 10 November 1988.

The double set was re-released on CD, titled simply Past Masters, on 9 September 2009, as part of the remastering of the original Beatles catalogue, and was included in The Beatles stereo box set. This release includes stereo mixes of both "From Me to You" and "Thank You Girl", whereas the original 1988 issue contained the two tracks in mono. The The Beatles in Mono box set, released at the same time, includes the album Mono Masters, which contains a similar track list of dedicated mono mixes.


12 votes spread across 3 Mersey songs and 3 London songs.

Close round in Mersey but the Matchbox finally fell from the hole in Ringo's clothes (6 votes ) and the Bad little kid moved OUT of the neighborhood. (8 votes )

Vote for your LEAST FAVORITE from EACH TRIBE (two total).

Tally on May 12

She's A Woman. But not the kind I would associate with.
