    Beatles Singles and EP Discography


    Beatles LP and CD Discography


  • JimmyPage

    Leaving WT, I had assumed that what ended up on the 2 Past Masters collections were singles the Beatles released that were never on official albums. I also assumed the Past Masters as such were never on vinyl but only on CD. Can you verify?

  • JimmyPage

    Good Lord. After looking at the links you provided it's as messy as the Elvis catalogue. Somebody always looking for new ways to cash in, I guess.

  • leavingwt

    Well, please ignore the entirity of what has been released, and focus on the canon. Then it becomes (almost) simple.

    The best description of the Past Masters collection is this: All singles, A sides and B sides, and a few more odd tracks. (The liner notes provide details on the odd tracks, such as the 'wildlife' version of Across the Universe.)

    You are correct, that none of the singles were on the albums. (It would require quite a paragraph or two to explain this in detail, debunking what would appear to be contradictions to this statement. Just "trust me".)

    If anyone is interested, check out this site:


    This fellow has the famous "revolver sessions" recordings that have floated around as bootlegs. This expands on what was heard in the Beatles Anthology. Its a great listen - to see how these songs all developed and how they became brilliant at using the studio technology.
