3 stars This album is a MISH MASH of songs that probably would never have been released by any other band even if they wanted to.... The record company executives wouldn't let them see the light of day.... Except this is the Beatles here.... and they basically could do whatever they wanted to ..... There are a few polished gems (While My Guitar Gently Weeps for example) but most of this album is filled with 'demo' songs that could use a little further tinkering...... A fine example is the song Revolution 1.......which appears on this album.....and doesn't sound all that great to me.....but the same song was later amped up and appeared as the 'B' side of the 'Hey Jude' single....and this more famous version of the song is much improved.... This album is undoubtedly had an influence on future proggers....just by proving that it is possible to record truly 'wacky' filler songs.....and that some people will enjoy them...
