Top Ten Beatles Album Recording SessionsPetSounds Yellow Submarine is not included, as it had no proper sessions.
The Top Ten
Non-album songs: Lady Madonna, The Inner Light, Hey Jude, Revolution, Hey Bulldog, Across the Universe
Not my favourite Beatles album, but when songs like Hey Jude, Hey Bulldog, and Across the Universe are added to album tracks such as While My Guitar Gently Weeps and Blackbird, it's a masterpiece. - PetSounds
Non-album songs: Strawberry Fields Forever, Penny Lane, Only a Northern Song
Think of how good Pepper would have been if SFF or Penny Lane had made an appearance! - PetSounds
Non-album songs: We Can Work It Out, Day Tripper
Already a strong album, it certainly isn't hurt by the addition of the very first double A-side single. - PetSounds
Yes, Revolver is indeed a dynamite of an album! Such a great work, absolutely. Paperback Writer and Rain were very characteristic songs of that period. They should be in the Revolver album, they fit perfectly there.
Non-album songs: Paperback Writer, Rain
Already a masterpiece, these two only make it better. - PetSounds
Non-album songs: The Ballad of John and Yoko, Old Brown Shoe - PetSounds
Get Back's single form is studio, and Let it Be's is album version, so technically the studio recorded Get Back is a non album single.
Non-album songs: Don't Let Me Down, You Know My Name (Look Up the Number)
You Know My Name (Look Up the Number) was partially recorded in 1967. However, its vocals were recorded during the Let It Be sessions.
Note that Across the Universe appeared on Let It Be despite being recorded during the White Album sessions. - PetSounds
Non-album songs: Hello Goodbye, All You Need is Love, Baby You're a Rich Man, It's All Too Much, All Together Now
Note that Strawberry Fields Forever and Penny Lane appeared on the album, but were recorded in the Sgt. Pepper sessions. - PetSounds
Non-album songs: Bad Boy, Yes It Is, I'm Down
Bad Boy is probably the least known Beatles track. It was recorded during the Help! Sessions, but wasn't released until 1966, on the LP A Collection of Beatles Oldies (But Goldies!). - PetSounds
Non-album songs: I Want to Hold Your Hand, This Boy
This one is on the list principally because of how much I love All My Loving and This Boy. - PetSounds
Non-album songs: none
And I Love Her, A Hard Day's Night, If I Fell, Can't Buy Me Love? Quite a collection of songs! - PetSounds
Non-album songs: She's a Woman, I Feel Fine - PetSounds
