blmeanie, I think this ability was part and parcel to the Beatles and was inherent to them as musicians; a deep-rooted, subliminal understanding. George Martin himself was astonished at what they were doing, even in the earlier days. Certainly he helped to shepherd them, but that originality that was built-in to all four of them couldn't be taught. In fact, I'm sure the Beatles themselves didn't understand what it was that made them so unique. They were drawing upon many influences, culminating in something far different than anyone had imagined possible, even just before their arrival on the scene. After reading that article, I'm so bloody impressed by them I can't stand it. :-D

efghij, excellent reply. It was miraculous these four guys all met up with each other and formed a band that eventually became BEATLES with an A.

And, George Martin does deserve a LOT of credit. He really was the 5th Beatle in a lot of ways.

paul has, as the boog sez, done exemplary work...

but...one should not diminish the often great work he did before that...

and, of course, the grandiose dealings with john, george and ringo we all know and love

2. Band on the Run
3. New
4 Chaos
5. McCartney

8. Venus and Mars
9. Red rose Speedway

Thanks, Mr. H!

Mhnso...so, my latest top ten would be (including "covers" albums)-- which changes from time to time-- the following (from earliest to most recent):

RAM
BAND ON THE RUN
(I'd really like to put McGEAR in this slot...but, I can't)
TUG OF WAR
FLOWERS IN THE DIRT or THE RUSSIAN ALBUM (depending on my mood)
FLAMING PIE
RUN, DEVIL, RUN
CHAOS & CREATION
MEMORY ALMOST FULL
ELECTRIC ARGUMENTS
KISSES ON THE BOTTOM
NEW

I'd have to think about actual ranking of these ten (or 11) in order of excellence.

And, then, the order might change next week.

Etc.

There is a recordshop where I live, they only sell vinyls. I met a man there who loves Kisses.....the relaxed jazzed feeling I guess

McGear was a good one that I have not heard in ages. Kisses I like a lot.Sorry mr H still find Press to play McCartneys worst album - perhaps with Of the Ground as a contender. But maybe it Will change. Wild Life is another album I nowadays enjoy a lot more than I used to. Among the newer ones New and Chaos are My faves. In fact I like most of it
