Ah, The Beatles, many of us grew up listening to this great groups music and solo lps. Definately one of the few groups/artists I enjoy more then Queen.


Favourite Beatles Album
Rubber Soul(US-Folk Rock Version and UK-Original! Both Great!)
Runners Up-Long Tall Sally, A Hard Days Night

Favourite McCartney Album
London Town

Favourite Lennon Album
John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band

Favourite Harrison Album
All Things Must Pass(Original LP issue, Not Remixed/Remasterd cd)

Favourite Starr Album
RINGO(Photograph is such an awesome tune)

It's so hard picking just one album!

Favorite Beatles album: Abbey Road
Favorite John album: Imagine (I don't have much of his stuff)
Favorite Paul album: Ram, probably
Favorite George album: All Things Must Pass (again, I don't have much of his stuff)
Favorite Ringo album: Ringo (I've got all his stuff... no, I'm kidding)

The Beatles were a huge obsession of mine back when I was about 13 or so, around the time the Anthologies came out... I ran out and got every book I could get my hands on, and I know A LOT about them... but I kind of burned myself out and don't really listen to them much anymore. I have my moments where they're the only thing I listen to, but it's been a while.

Nice choices, Ram is awesome. Ah yes, I can relate. I grew up with Beatles vinyls so I sorta burned out on them after a long while, but these days I treat their music like a treat, listening to it every little while and enjoying it to the fullest.

I don't own a Solo Beatles album (yet)....but based on the few Beatles albums I do own, my favourite is probably Abbey Road. Just beats Rubber Soul.

One of the albums that's quickly becoming a favorite is Paul's "Press To Play" album, especially 'However Absurd'. I just love that song... anyone else ever hear it, or am I alone?

lol true, I enjoy Red Rose Speedway a lot(Lazy Dynamite!!!!). Double Fantasy was quite good(Johns stuff) but I wouldnt recommend it to someone who doesnt have a John solo lp. They would be scared off by the Yoko Ono tracks

Nice choices, haha, aw sorry to hear about your opinion on Macca! I think its the sillyness of his music which makes it all that better :) hehe. Good for depressing days I suppose! Ah yes, Cloud 9! *sing-song* I got my mind set on youuuuuu got my mind set on youuuu. Haha, what a great comeback for George. Glad to see a lot of Beatle fans around

Awesome, Beatlemania nights! Ah, as for George, go for "All Things Must Pass" or "The Best Of George Harrison". He is definately great! "Bangla-Desh","You","My Sweet Lord" all great tracks!
