Brief Album Description: Picking up in 1965 where Past Masters, Vol. 1 left off, Past Masters, Vol. 2 collects the 15 non-LP tracks that the Beatles released in the last five years of their career (not counting the singles that were released on Magical Mystery Tour). If Vol. 2 is more eclectic than its predecessor, it isn't quite as thematically consistent, but it does hit greater highs with a greater frequency. Indeed, some of the greatest singles in pop history are here: "Day Tripper," "We Can Work It Out," "Paperback Writer," "Rain," "Lady Madonna," "Hey Jude," "Revolution," "Don't Let Me Down," and "The Ballad of John and Yoko." All of the aforementioned are staples in the Lennon/McCartney canon, and while George Harrison's two contributions aren't as familiar, "The Inner Light" is arguably his best Indian excursion and "Old Brown Shoe" is a charmingly jaunty tune that points toward his solo career. In the middle of all this, single versions of "Get Back" and "Let It Be" appear (the former is stiffer than the LP version, the latter is better than its counterpart), along with the alternate (and superior) "Across the Universe" and the silly yet strangely irresistible "You Know My Name (Look Up the Number)." Overall, the compilation feels a little disjointed, mainly because it covers so much ground so quickly, but that takes nothing away from the quality of the music, since many of these songs rank among the best, most inventive recordings of the pop/rock era.

Come In For A Visit To The Millenium MIDI Homepage


Thanks For Visiting And Be Sure To Tell All Your Friends. I have been an avid Beatles' fan since the early 70's. My collection is based upon my private collection of every original released LP in the US. Those who have seen the original records on vinyl will remember some of the albums you no longer see around: "Meet The Beatles"; "Beatles '65"; "Yesterday..and Today!" to name a few. I am now adding all the US compilation and Live albums to my webpage with songs in MIDI format, small 30-second songs in MP3 format and lastly, a lyrics page of every song. All album covers are viewable in a greatly larger version and free to download as are all the songs both in MIDI and MP3 formats. Though the MP3's are only 30 seconds long, they are perfect for ringtones for your phone. If you download a bunch then at least please consider a small donation. You can also purchase a special mix of four Beatles music CD's or you can purchase each Beatles album in MP3 format, but please keep it at 1-2 albums at a time because they all have to be emailed and thats a lot of files since every song is in 192 kbps. Thank you for your support...
