· "Hodge Podge Vol. 3" - The Beatles

Back in year 2000, and far from being embarrassingly inessential, buying this CD meant that you didn't have to buy several others just to get some of these tracks. When this CD was released, I was very pleased because it contained several tracks from very hard-to-find discs. For instance, the White Album alternate mixes were only available on expensive Japanese imports. “Tomorrow Never Knows” RM11 was released on this disc long before than on Turn Me On Dead Man and before that, it was only available on the expensive (again) Japanese Revolver Mono Matrix 1, later re-released (re-made) by Dr. Ebbetts.
I also prefer this long version of “You Know My Name” to that on the Anthology album, since on there it annoyingly fades just before the end. Here instead, we get the complete Anthology version with the FULL ending. Also, the "alternate" stereo mixes of “I'm So Tired” and “Happiness Is A Warm Gun” are the regular tracks with the overdubs synced together, but they were presented here in the best sound quality for the first time.
Also rare were the A Hard Day’s Night mono mixes for the film, which are not the same mono mixes which were released on the Parlophone mono UK LP nor those on the United Artists USA album.
