Certainly much less so (especially at this point in history) than Magical Mystery Tour, which wasn't on that list.

Could not resist joining in -

Revolver
White Album
Rubber Soul
Help!
A Hard Day's Night


What's interesting, IMO, is, if the Beatles had placed some of their singles on their albums, as opposed to keeping them off for selling purposes, is how much stronger Revolver and Rubber Soul would have been.

Substitute Paperback Writer/Rain for Love You To and Dr. Robert on Revolver, and We Can Work It Out/Day Tripper for The Word (my nominee for one the worst Beatle songs ever) and Think for Yourself, and both albums flow even better. (I've done this as playlists on my iPod). Add I Feel Fine/She's a Woman to Beatles for Sale, and an album considered to be mediocre by Beatles standards reaches a new level.

Hard Days Night
Rubber Soul

Revolver
Abbey Road

After HDN, everything else is a toss up.

I found a good way to get into their solo stuff - Beatles Radio.com. They primarily play Beatles stuff, but also mix in solo material + cover songs. It's easily accessible via iPod apps so you can listen to it travelling, working out, etc. (Sean Connery doing "In My Life" may have been the most bizarre song I've listened to while exercising)



I'd always wished it had been a single album myself.

Back in the U.S.S.R.
Dear Prudence
While My Guitar Gently Weeps
Blackbird
Sexy Sadie
Helter Skelter
Birthday
Happiness Is a Warm Gun
Mother Nature's Son
Not Guilty
Revolution (Single version)
Cry Baby Cry

Probably needs more McCartney to make him happy, but I don't find his stuff is all that great during this album. (Hey Jude doesn't fit the vibe of the album IMO)
The thing is with the White Album, there was no discernible vibe. Hey Jude could have fit in on a hypothetical 2nd 1968 album though, with some material either re-worked or created to compliment Hey Jude.

I just love the way the album unfurls...one song is a straight-out rocker, then veers off in another direction. To me, it was like a buffet, with so many tasty options.

Pretty much all of his debut solo record were songs he wrote for the White Album that missed the cut.

I knew that, and many of them made it onto All Things Must Pass but that wasn't one of them. I'd just never heard of that song before.

Dude, when I used to play Trivial Pursuit, everyone would just groan when I got a music category; double groan if it was about the Beatles.

The original British release of Magical Mystery Tour was only an EP. Capitol added the singles to construct the entire 2nd side.

I still count it as an album.

It was the first Beatles record I ever got.

Understood...side 2, despite being a record company construct, had a cohesion...mainly due to the strength of the songs.
