The Beatles - The River Rhine Tapes

Great selections from the 'Let It Be' and 'Get Back' sessions-era. Not a whole lot of Beatle-banter on this one, many boots of this era have endless studio chatter and clearly show the band falling apart. Although I value those editions as well, it gets kind of depressing to listen to. This one is just chock full of great versions of soon-to-be classics, God they are missed. The best part of this package it seems universally agreed upon is the emergence of George Harrison as a song-writig force to be reckoned with. This one (actually is part of a 3 disc set) has some wonderful sound quality and is worth many listens on your stereos children, more Beatles to come.

Are you aware that Rhine River is a fake? And that HeyRickey is actually Jima at Dime?
