Prog Reviewer
3 stars A collection of non-album tracks (the versions included of Get Back, Across the Universe and Let It Be are different mixes from those on Let It Be) from 1965 to 1969, Past Masters 2 isn't an especially essential album - no disc including the awful "comedy" "song" You Know My Name (Look Up the Number) could be - but it is still a decent Beatles collection which fills in a number of gaps in the second half of their career, including some pieces which really should have taken the place of the album versions. There's Revolution, the single version of which presented here is far better than the version on the White Album, the experimental Rain, the elegaic Hey Jude, and more, easily enough to enchant anyone big into the Beatles' psychedelic phase. But I just can't stand that last song...
