Clearly, the Beatles ' two main songwriting forces were no longer Infrared - The Groove (Original Pass) - Various - The Worlds Greatest Club Mix 2008 the same page, but neither were George and Ringo.
Lennon and McCartney stuck to the traditional allotment of two Harrison songs per LP, but it's clear from "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," the canned soul of "Savoy Truffle," the haunting "Long, Long, Long," and even the silly "Piggies" that he had developed into a songwriter who deserved wider exposure. And Ringowho was allowed to record his first original song ever, turns in a delight with the lumbering country-carnival stomp "Don't Pass Me By.
And, in its own way, it was nearly as influential as Sgt. Peppersince scores of post-punk bands picked up on various threads running throughout the record, and many of the great albums in rock history -- Exile on Main St. Much of this comes from its double-album sprawl, which provided plenty of space for strangeness, jokes, and songs seemingly Happiness Is A Warm Gun - The Beatles - The Alternate White Album alone, all contributing to the impression that the album was a series of solo projects crammed into one album.
The intent of the Super Deluxe 50th Anniversary Edition is to correct that narrative by emphasizing band interplay via a new remix from Giles Martin and, more importantly, by offering three discs of sessions and the first official release Choosing You - Flesh For Lulu - Plastic Fantastic the legendary acoustic demos recorded by George HarrisonJohn Lennonand Paul McCartney at Harrison 's home in Esher.
As good as Martin 's remix is -- Happiness Is A Warm Gun - The Beatles - The Alternate White Album may not be as revelatory as his stereo remix of Sgt. Pepper inbut it does manage the trick of sounding rich and bold without betraying the feel of the original -- the real appeal of this deluxe Happiness Is A Warm Gun - The Beatles - The Alternate White Album is the unreleased material, all presented in sparkling fidelity.

Some of these surprises are subtle, amounting to slight turns of phrases, but there are also major revelations, including a looser, strum-along "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da" and a version of "Good Night" shorn of its strings that finds Ringo supported by plucked guitar and harmonies from the rest of the Beatles.
All these alternate versions, both big and small, enhance the White Albumpushing it away from the weird, cloistered record of lore by highlighting the imagination and play fueling its creation.
Taken on their own, the session tapes are absorbing listening, but they also have the side effect of making the finished The Happiness Is A Warm Gun - The Beatles - The Alternate White Album not seem like a mess, but rather a deft, cleverly constructed album that accurately reflects the abundant creativity of these sessions.
