Abbey Road followed closely by Let it Be.

I am 64 years old so I know what a album and a 45 is . Growing up it was Abbey Road 100% . But as I get older I really enjoy any Beatles song that was done with a acoustic guitar . Yesterday on acoustic , something , working class hero , Michele, my Lord , while my guitar gently weeps . The Beatles Acoustic with there B7 th chord story makes me smile when ever I strum it in a Beatles acoustic song . They way they have one riff played just a hair different one time in a song . It is like picking your favorite child . Changes all the time Joe R

Without question Abbey Road is my favorite.

Great idea for a thread.

Abbey Road for me as well.

Because I'm old enough to remember their first time on Ed Sullivan, for sentimental reasons I'd put Meet the Beatles second. The cultural paradigm shift that occurred when those four lads arrived on the scene is still reverberating more than half a century later.

Historically, it's noteworthy to recall how perfect their timing was (to take nothing away from their immense talent). JFK had been murdered a mere three months earlier and the entire world was in mourning. They gave us a reason to once more laugh and smile -- and even dance. Oh, those songs.

thanks,
scott memmer

Octopus's garden belongs at the bottom of the ocean but Abbey Road is still the best album.

I know this isn’t the subject of the post, but anything to do with Ringo singing anything is beyond cringeworthy to me. Just one man’s thoughts.

Rubber Soul/Revolver. I can't choose between the two and try to consider them together as a quasi-double album. They were released about 8 months apart (Dec. '65 and Aug. '66).

Rok, many years ago I had read somewhere that one of the geniuses of McCartney's songwriting was he could write a song for Ringo with maybe only a four- or five-note range, with perhaps the finest example being "A Little Help from My Friends" on Pepper.

If we're talking about the strength of the songwriting, hands down Revolver.

It's the only Beatles album IMO that has no weak songs on it, everything is iconic or innovative in its own way. Its only knock is that it is seen as a followup to Rubber Soul but I think it definitely is the stronger of the two.

Peppers and Abbey Road are great to set a unified mood but the great songs on those albums shine far brighter than the weaker material.

That’s interesting to hear. I’m not surprised because McCartney is that talented.
I remember hearing the song “What goes on.” as the “B” side of the 45 RPM release of “ Nowhere Man”. My first thoughts were, what in the name of all that is holy is the reason for this song and why is Ringo singing? Aaaaugh!

Rok: It's probably twenty years or more since I read that article. Ever since, I find myself listening to tunes with Ringo singling, whether Beatles originals or covers, and this principle seems to hold steady throughout.

I don't find "Octopus's Garden" s annoyed as more of you, it would appear, but I find it redeemed by 1) George's stellar and even witting guitar playing on the track; 2) Paul's bouncing bass work; and 3) The stunning, layered vocal harmonies. These boys could sing.

This following fact blew my mind: Paul said recently (I forget whether this was on a talk show or in a written article) that he and John had NEVER had a dry session. Can you fathom that? He said, of the hundreds of times they sat down together they always came away with a song. Good Lord, that's not fair.

Was legacy they have left. They're music is so timeless. Even much of the early stuff sounds like it could have been recorded yesterday.
