Let's do it again (like we did on the last album, which worked I thought)
I have noticed that certain LPs seem to go in pairs where the most recent one seems almost another go at the one that preceded it, as if the act concerned were mining a particularly rich seam which they felt worth continuing with. In some cases it's as if they repeat a certain kind of track, though it's not a copy, more of a case of let's do another one like that one on the last record.
There's Revolver and Sgt Pepper on which She's Leaving Home is another helping of Eleanor Rigby and both records have a Harrison penned sitar song plus an experimental weird one to end with. I also thought of Beggar's Banquet and Let It Bleed, with their mixture of blues covers, country rock etc., the latter being a further refinement of the former. Some tracks can again be paired up. Another is Bowie Low and Heroes. Same idea of separate song and instrumental sides on both, obviously. Similarities of production, drum sound.
So are there any more of these doubles or is this a bit of a non-starter? It seems two is enough, after that I guess things need shaking up a bit, or there's a change in personnel, producer, venue for recording etc.
