NOTES: The only changes made to the songs are getting them all to one volume level and fades.
I did the best I could with fades, but some are rather abrupt due to the fact that one song
goes right into the next. Overall I think it turned out good. You might consider burning
this in TAO instead of DAO - I added 1 second of silence at the beginning and end of each
song to separate them, but TAO is still the way to go IMHO. My reasoning for deciding which
versions to include is listed below:
-Day Tripper GD 06-25-85 Suggested by David Gans
-Come Together Dead 07-07-03 Suggested by a friend. He said that he believed that Joan's
super hot performance got this one going.
-Eleanor Rigby Jam JGB 02-12-80 One of very few. All are ragged. Chose this one as one of best.
-Tomorrow Never Knows GD 11/29/94 Suggested to me by a friend I think.
-Blackbird Ratdog 11-09-99 One I had.... The two GD versions really sucked
-Get Back PLQ 10-16-00 Not played much, GD version very poor
-Why Don't We Do It In The Road GD 04-07-85 Well, it IS a Beatles song...less lame than the
others (I was almost tempted to leave it off entirely)
-Hey Jude GD 03-22-90 *Complete version; Jude>Reprise patched together, dropping "Dear Mr.
Fantasy" entirelly; There is a slight "hitch" between Jude and the Reprise but I left it as is
to keep as much music as possible without including "Fantasy." I had originally thought of using
the 3/1/69 version, but David Gans suggested this one as the better choice. Even though the '69
one has Pigpen, this one is better.
-Strawberry Fields Forever PLQ 02-08-02 Pretty hot version, although a bit hollow; it also
features some interesting hints to Eleanor Rigby.
-Rain GD 10-09-94 I perused The Compendium Volume III and found this to be one of the better
versions, which, upon hearing it, it is.
-Revolution GD 07-02-85 I listened to all of the versions, and this one shone above the rest.
I could have sworn that there was a really good one from '90, but, when I listened, well, I guess
I was mistaken.
-She Said Dead 07-07-03 Joan smokes on this puppy!
-Dear Prudence Reconstruction 7-8-79 Suggested here as a good version in lieu of the later JGB
versions - it has pretty much what he played with the JGB, with horns, and back when he was healthy.
-All Too Much GD 03-26-95 Someone suggested this one.
-I Want To Tell You JGB 03-08-87 *1 of 2 JGB times played; The '76 version is ragged which is
a shame as Donna and Keith were part of the JGB back then. I to go with a JGB version instead
of the GD versions as Jerry was in much better health. Also, the JGB allowed him to stretch out
in a different direction.
-Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds GD 03-17-95 Best version according to The Compendium Volume III.
I Am The Walrus PLQ 09-01-02 - personal favorite, I attended and we believed that PLQ was not going
to tour anymore....
-While My Guitar Gently Weeps PLQ 11-30-01 Bitter sweet to hear this one as it was the day after
George died. It was only played once; I wish they had included this in their repertoire, or at least
pulled it out every so often as a surprise. Warren does this one "just exactly perfect."
