Double albums as single albums

ITT: take a double album and rework the tracklist so it’s a single disc instead. If you’re feeling up to it, make a single album a double

Example: White Album by the Beatles
Side A:
1. Back in the USSR
2. Dear Prudence
3. Glass Onion
4. Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da (Anthology 3)
5. Blackbird
6. Martha My Dear
7. While My Guitar Gently Weeps
8. Happiness is a Warm Gun

Side B:
9. Revolution 1
10. Yer Blues
11. Mother Nature’s Son
12. Savoy Truffle
13. Sexy Sadie
14. Helter Skelter
15. Good Night

      The problem with cutting down the white album is that each member was operating in their own little bubble with wildly different results, so it's going to feel inconsistent and unwieldy at any length. It's more honest to reality as a long sprawling collection of odds and ends.

        yeah its true. my list doesnt even represent what i think are the best songs on the album. just i had a kind of theme or feel in mind and felt these ones could express it best

        >It's more honest to reality

        screw that - these albums aren't valuable for being little opaque clues to artists' inner lives. Their valuable fot the music and how it makes us feel about our own lives. Strip away the excess and unrelatable.

    Someone do Mellon Collie. I've tried and failed - there's definitely fluff to pare away but for me there's still more that seems essential than a singe disc can hold.
