Maybe I put too much faith in atmosphere

Apropos of the "truncated Tommy" discussion with Choc in the Who topic, I decided to revisit a similar, much more controversial issue.

I was also looking for my John-and-George-only White Album proposal to post across the road. Note that "WMGGW" isn't on it--I fail to "get" the plaudits showered on this track. I much prefer the gorgeous version George and Giles M included on Love:

Personally, I don't want to cut it down to a single album - there are too many keepers on this album (I love every song on the album, to varying extent, but three: Wild Honey Pie, Long Long Long & Revolution 9)

As for my own playlist, I tend to add more songs. Right now, I add Lady Madonna, The Inner Light, Hey Bulldog, Not Guilty, Hey Jude and You're So Square, making it a 33-song "album" as a whole. I know it's not realistic, but it works for me.

However, I agree the idea that it was better off separated as two albums. It's just that I can't imagine how those two albums would've been.

I personally don't have the attention span for a double album.  I'm not ashamed to admit that I would find single album versions of White Album, Physical Graffiti, Tommy, and the Wall more appealing. 
Sadly, as i get older, i find my attention span is going, too. I used to sit glued to the record player, as Bob spewed out all 120 verses of Desolation Row, Hurricane, or Lily, Rosemary and the Jack of Hearts. Now my mind starts to wander after 2 minutes and 30 seconds.
Keep it short and sweet. Straight to the point.
Maybe that's why i am going back to more 50's/mid 60's music these days. If your single ran over 3 minutes, it was less likely to get played.
Unless it was Like a Rolling Stone or Hey Jude.
