To one of my absolute favourites. Best opening three tracks of any album ever?

All good but I felt HDN , Revolver and Pepper were better for the opening three.

I'd go for:

With the Beatles
Beatles for Sale
Rubber Soul
Revolver
Hard day's night

in that order.

Not that they're my favourite albums, but for bish-bash-bosh of a first three.

Non-Beatles I'd go for Blood on the Tracks (first five songs of that even)

Oh, best first three on nonBeatles albums, eh? We could go a long way with that. Sticking with Bob Dylan, what about Highway 61 Revisited's first three: "Like A Rolling Stone", "Tombstone Blues" and "It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry".
