We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I was skeptical about the Beatles before their first Ed Sullivan appearance. Hype, hype, but no musicianship I thought. (I didn't realize thast in '62 had been performing 8 hours a day in Germany for some months. That will develop musicianship.) It didn't take me long to change my mind.
Another vote for Rubber Soul but tied with Abbey Road for 1st, with Revolver and Help close behind.
So much of their music is timeless — to focus on best albums is kind of missing the point of their unbelievably huge influence.
E.g. “All My Loving” is one of their many timeless classic tunes, just as great now as when it was released in 1963 almost 60 years ago ... but hardly anyone knows or cares what album it was on (especially since their early albums were far different US version vs UK version). Multiply that example times 20 or 30.
BTW the Paul McCartney doc on Hulu is a must-watch for anyone who lloves the Beatles ... or even likes music ... or was alive in the 60s :-)
Trivia for music nerds: the sound engineer on all early Beatles recordings (through Rubber Soul) was Norman Smith, who went on to produce Pink Floyd albums and in 1971 had a hit of his own “Oh Babe, What Would You Say” as Norman “Hurricane” Smith. https://youtu.be/T_z7VeEEsrc
