Just in case any of you were keeping track or looking forward to copies of the assorted Glorious Noise 21 best tracks here's an updates of sorts:

The Beatles list needs to trim 8 songs (and there's no better place to start than Act Naturally, if you ask me); the Stones have 11 to go; and the Radiohead disc actually appears to be done (any volunteers for cover art and burning?).

Perhaps we can re-start a few fights, trim the song-list, get the track list ordered and actually get a few of these burned sometime in 2006.

Man, still no "Stray Cat Blues" for the Stones? Otherwise, well done!

Sweet....good job on the compiling and reviving of the lists we never really finished.

I stayed out of the discussions for the most part before, but I'm going to take a whack at the Beatles list now.

Personally, if we're 8 over I think Act Naturally, Baby, You're a Rich Man, I've Got a Feeling, Long Long Long, One After 909, Julia, You Know My Name and I've Just Seen a Face should be cut.

I'm not going to justify all of them, but there you are. More or less, I think these ones are just less compelling or just less flat-out fun than some of the others left on.

I think a new rule is in order. If you start a "best 21..." thread, you are in charge of the hard work of managing the thread and building a consensus and getting it done.

By the way, one way to narrow down that Stones one would be to disclude anything that's on Hot Rocks 1 or 2...
