Day Tripper -This stellar album kicks off with both sides of the double A-sided single from December of 1965. This side went to number one in the UK...
We Can Work It Out - ...while this side was a US number one. Both of these great songs were recorded during sessions for Rubber Soul.
Paperback Writer - This single was recorded in April of 1966 during the Revolver sessions.
Rain - The amazing B-side of that single.
Lady Madonna - We jump 1967 entirely and pick up with this rocking single from March, 1968. It was recorded during a series of sessions specifically designed to create a single for release while the group was in India studying transcendental meditation.
The Inner Light - The B-side features George Harrison's first song to appear on a Beatles single. The Indian instruments were recorded at EMI's Bombay studio during sessions for Harrison's soundtrack for the film Wonderwall. Vocals were added a month or so later at Abbey Road.
Hey Jude - The monster single from August 1968 was recorded during sessions for The Beatles, aka the "White Album."
Revolution - The B-side of that single. Lennon had pushed hard for this to be an A-side, but once McCartney brought in Hey Jude, John acquiesced. This could easily have been another double A-sided single, though. Few acts have ever had the ability to produce two such widely different songs, each strong enough to be a hit, let alone put them back-to-back on the same record.
