POLL: Which 14-songs would you want on a single-disc White Album?

A number of users on here believe that John, Paul, George, Ringo, and Martin's peak was their self-titled 1968 album, often referred to as "The White Album." I believe it's one of their best, and would probably rank it their second or third best were it not for the songs on it that I don't believe are up to their standards.

My Top 50 Albums

Current list:
1. The Beach Boys – Pet Sounds
2. The Velvet Underground – The Velvet Underground & Nico
3. Captain Beefheart & his Magic Band – Trout Mask Replica
4. Bob Dylan – Blonde on Blonde
