4 stars Past Masters 2 would be an excellent addition to any music collection. The main thing to remember is that this is a collection of singles, B-sides and a comedy song. No other band could muster such an incredible roster of non-album material. Take your pick: Hey Jude, Revolution, Paperback Writer, Lady Madonna... One of my personal favourites is the psychedelic 'Rain'. The rhythm musicianship is just out-of-this-world - Ringo plays his drums like a man possessed, and McCartney's bass lines are inspirational and unique. Add to this the fact that the original recording was *slowed down* and you get some idea of just how far ahead of its time this was. Another favourite is "Day Tripper" which features what must be the most catchy guitar riff ever, "Paperback Writer" is also an ingenious song which moved away from the Beatles trademark love songs. I love everything on here actually, including the comedic "You know my name look up the number". I would like to say that this is essential. Well, at least it is for Beatles fans!
