Some have been great, others disappointing. Although the Beatles magic was never duplicated, there was an occasional spark that was reminiscent of the "good old days." What are your favorite Beatles solo albums?

Mine are:

Band On The Run
All Things Must Pass
Ram
Wings At The Speed Of Sound

As Emmylou Harris wrote "Just ask the boy from Tupelo, he's The King and he ought to know. "

Never argue with Chuck Rickli! ( He is also The King of Rock n Roll )


that said. I dug all of lot of George solo stuff too. What a great songwriter.

Wings over America is alright, And I saw a great Paul show a few years ago, although I don't buy his records.

Ringo is a gas, But His best song was co-written with George. Still I dig his style. His last record was a gas.

But John has always been my favorite.

All Things Must Pass is #1. Imagine would be #2 and Band on the Run comes in third.

I really don't have a favorite, I like ANYTHING Beatle related.

Although, thinking about it, lately, I have tended to listen to George's Cloud Nine & Live In Japan, Paul's Trippin' The Live Fantastic and Ringo's first All-Starr Band albums more than the others. This time of year, it's pretty tough listening to John's albums. I seem to listen to them mainly in spring & summer.

Like with most things, my "favorite" varies with my mood.

All Things Must Pass
McCartney
Plastic Ono Band
Imagine
Ringo
Band On The Run


Lots of underrated ones too, there's some good tunes on Ringo's "Rotogravure" album from '75, Paul's "Flaming Pie" CD is among the best things he's ever done IMO -- George's "Dark Horse" album is solid, I like some of the tunes on "OX%BL*N Extra Texture" (or whatever that title was -- orange cover )

=========================================
Yeah me too Stephen, but I only paid real attention to lennons carreer or took it serrious more than the others. His solo career was more of what I expected from them while at times he underplayed what he could do while some say he rested on his laurels. I loved" Live in NYC" and generally all his solo work -imangine!!. George may have shot his wad on ATMP(fantastic though) while Paul kept me interested on the radio only, except the first and ram (good in concert though). God bless Ringo for actually forging a solo career from the shadow of those guys.

Plastic Ono Band

George Harrison

Vertical Man

This is a hard question. While John was my favorite overall, it's hard to argue with All Things Must Pass as the best overall by sheer volume of good music.

So, if I could limit it to the top 3 in order I'd say:

All things Must Pass
Plastic Ono Band
Ram

Very underrated, IMHO.

Chaos and Creation and MAF are damn good too.

Pauls 'Run Devil, Run' was a good rocker & 'McCartney' has some great cuts (maybe because they are so "Beatlesque" and most were written & recorded during the Beatles phase). John had some very creative stuff and I lament what could have been with the promise of 'Double Fantasy'. But if I had to pick the best solo effort it would have to be George's 'All Things Must Pass".

Great songwriting, great layout, great music, great playing, great style, great concept.

The first "Prize" I ever won on an AM Radio station was Paul's "Ram".. You know " To the 5th caller"... I wore that record out.

I always wished that George Harrison would have put out another studio album or two right after ALL THINGS MUST PASS in '71 or 72. He was in a very inspired period of his career, and more studio music would have been right up his fans' alley. Unfortunately little happened. What was he doing?

It wasn't until 1973 when he released his next solo album LIVING IN THE MATERIAL WORLD, which paled in comparison to ATMP. There were some good songs, but truly, things had certainly passed.
