Two versions are head and shoulders above the third. Daylight separates them. One performance stands out obviously as being weaker. It's not that it's terrible when listened to in isolation. But the strengths on both Andy White's and Ringo's versions are abundantly apparent when stacked up against each other. Actually a pretty damned good reference for mine.
