This thread reminded me of Be True To Your School: A Diary of 1964

Took me a good 30 minutes of googling to remember the name. Was a great read.

Five Favourite Beatles Albums:

- Rubber Soul (UK Parlophone version)
- Help (UK Parlophone version)
- Revolver (UK Parlophone version)
- Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (mono version)
- A Hard Day's Night (UK Parlophone version) / Magical Mystery Tour ((US version, although the UK double ep version would be nice to have as a collectible)

honorable mention - about half of the White Album (in mono - 'Helter Skelter' is absolutely bludgeoning in this version. McCartney's hardest rock song, bar none)

Fave Five Ex-Beatle Albums:

- Paul McCartney - Ram
- Paul McCartney - McCartney
- George Harrison - All Things Must Pass
- George Harrison - Living In A Material World
- John Lennon - (have to be a mix from the best songs from Plastic Ono, Imagine and Mind Games. Everything after these lp's was sketchy/wimpy at best)

honorable mention - Ringo Starr - Beaucoups Of Blues
Ringo gets no respect from the vast majority of folks but he always had stellar musicians playing with him and wrote a couple of great songs:
- Photograph
- It Don't Come Easy (w/ George Harrison)

I find I prefer all the earlier albums, even though most of my favourite song by them are from their post-touring days.

So, this is my list:

1) Revolver
3) Hard Days Night
4) Help!
2) Rubber Soul
5) Love

I used to really like The Beatles (aka The White Album) and Magical Mystery Tour, but both have weak points that take them down a notch for me today - particularly the white album since so many of the songs are frivolous - it may well be their worst albums despite having some great songs on it. As for Abbey Road, I've never cared for the medley on side 2. Yellow Submarine is only 50% good...I rank With the Beatles/Meet the Beatles and The Beatles Second Album as superior.
Love is really really cool. Best versions of Because, While My Guitar Gently Weeps, A Day in the Life, and (an unpopular opinion) Hey Jude, IMO, and a few really neat remixes like Within You Without You/Tomorrow Never Knows.

(for those who ask where is hey jude--that album was a compulation of songs recorded and released over their career)
Magical Mystery Tour counts. The single tracks there didn't make it to Past Masters, so ultimately for release purposes this counts as an album since the purpose of the two PM discs was to compile non-album songs.

It's not on the album.

oh, absolutely. I pick that one up off the shelf more than I probably should, compared to the albums.

my top-5:

Abbey Road
Revolver
Rubber Soul
A Hard Day's Night
White Album

I'm not just trying to be contrarian or hipster not putting Sgt. Pepper there... it would be 6th for me.

top-5 solo:

Harrison - All Things Must Pass
Wings - Band On the Run
McCartney - Memory Almost Full
Lennon - Plastic Ono Band
Lennon - Imagine

and I've heard all 40+ solo albums at least 5 times each.

I'm assuming he, like myself, does not acknowledge the Yoko Ono contributions to the record. Lennon did some amazing work on that record and no amount of ****** Yoko Ono recordings can take that away.

Kiss Kiss Kiss has to be the worst Lennon-associated song ever.

Just realized your name is a homage to Harrison.

Actually they had to add singles to the recording because John could not keep up with Paul. He was burned out hence the trip to India and John's weirdness on the White Album.
