Many great points have been made, Sun King brought up S&G and another example would be Bob Dylan. While his debut didn't necessarily flop, it still was miles away from what was to come. Imagine a music world without Dylan, now that's depressing.

From Wikipedia: The performances on his first Columbia album, Bob Dylan (1962), consisted of familiar folk, blues and gospel material combined with two original compositions. The album made little impact, selling only 5,000 copies in its first year, just enough to break even. Within Columbia Records, some referred to the singer as "Hammond's Folly" and suggested dropping his contract. Hammond defended Dylan vigorously.

Thank goodness for John Hammond.

I'd add Arcade Fire and Oasis to the "outstanding debut and sophomore" list.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8What constitutes a real artist? Dylan is no more real then any other musician.

Other then the first 3 songs and Listen to What The Man Said, it's insufferable. My answer to the original question is, probably, All Things Must Pss.

Following TMK's approach

 

Paul: Wings At The Speed Of Sound (there isnt 1 track that bugs me unlike all his others).

John: Plastic Ono Band

George: All Things Must Pass or Cloud Nine

Ringo: Ringo's Rotogravure (havent heard it the whole way thru for years as its not available online (and im not desperate enough to *cough* 'download' it) but the memories are of a really good album – better than Ringo).
