Beatles Laid Back and Unplugged,
This review is from: Anthology 3 (Audio CD)
A previous reviewer said its like the Beatles unplugged. So my apologies for taking it for my title- but it's exactly what I wanted to say. Though some of the tracks are fully orchestrated. This album just has the edge over the 2nd Anthology for me. There are some charming acoustic versions of well known tracks, especially the Esher sessions at George's house/mansion. It has a great feel. You'd never guess they were going to split up from this, it has such a positive, good-humoured, warm feel to it, with the banter and chat. (So,I think the Amazon review comment saying it is 'a study of how the Beatles themselves came apart', is rather mislaeding; it gave me the expectation of bickering and shoddiness. It is very far from that.). It is a must for White Album fans and has the previously unreleased, but complete, 'Not Guilty', and 'What's the New Mary Jane'- which were as good as many other White album tracks which weren't shelved. Of course it covers Abbey Road material and the final Let it Be; perhaps the closest in feel to this album.
I like the relaxed feel of the whole album: a special quality that you don't get with polished studio albums and different from live albums. Great!
