1965 & 1966. Love how they looked during that period, the music was developing so fast, way ahead of nearly everyone, and they were still a tight unit.

Rubber Soul – they really became men and looked amazing.

I like their Rubber Soul era as well. I don't know what you mean by becoming men, though. Besides 1965-1966, I also rather like their Hamburg times. I think it's historically more interesting than the Beatlemania or "hippy times".

In 1965/66 they have this look that oozes confidence in who they were and the music they were making. That they were so far ahead of the field. So different to the cover of Beatles for Sale (which is a great lp cover) where they look exhausted. Actually if you look at the two covers, on Beatles for Sale the leaves are off the trees and its filled with autumnal colours yet on Rubber Soul the bushes are so full of green and life.

From a similar thread I started a year and a half ago…

Here is mine… 30 June 1964 to 30 June 1966

I would have begun my journey seeing the lads performing live in Australia then hanging out with my new captive audience on a flight from Australia to England the next day.  My journey would have concluded 4 days after a reunion of sorts during a trip to Hamburg and 1 month prior to all “Jesus” breaking loose.

Among others, I would have met Jayne Mansfield, Bob Dylan and Elvis.

I would have attended premieres of A Hard Day’s Night and HELP! as well as the weddings of Ringo and George. For me, some of the coolest concert cities would have been Stockholm, San Francisco, Vegas, Hollywood, Denver (Red Rocks), Boston,  New Orleans, Liverpool, New York and the aforementioned Hamburg. I would have also travelled to the Bahamas’ and learned skiing and curling (running 7 miles with Ringo and Paul) in Austria.

Lastly, I would have been in the studios for recordings of my favorite LP’s – the period from Beatles for Sale to Revolver.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

What thread's that from?

This one. I love the idea, truly.

My answer from that thread still stands:

Ok lets see. I think I would go from May of 1967 to May of 1969. I can basically see them work on Magical Mystery Tour, Yellow Submarine, White Album, most of Let It Be, and parts of Abbey Road. Great time for music.

I would also sit next to Mick Jagger at the All You Need Is Love taping, watch Jimi Hendrix perform Sgt. Pepper's, travel with them to Greece, sadly see Brian die =[, sit on the Magical Mystery bus, see John and Yoko in action, see Paul and John's weddings, meet Clapton, India, watch the demise of the greatest band of all time, and wear some hippie clothing. Oh yeah!

Now I'm excited, can this actually happen?

 

I also enjoy '65 and '66. So If you combine it altogether, my favorite period is from '65 to '69.

Well we all shine on like the moon, the stars, and the sun.

My favorite period is early Beatles, like right after Ringo joined the band up until Rubber Soul. I liked them after that, but before they were more witty and there music sounds more like classic Beatles. When people think of the Beatles, they think of "I Want To Hold Your Hand," not "Lovely Rita" I think of "Lovely Rita" because I love that song, but still, its not classic.

I love the era of psychedelic experimentation from Revolver through Magical Mystery Tour. While The White Album is most likely my favorite, it's the one that feels most like they have their sound down to a science, except for Beatles for Sale and the sort-of-forced feeling of Let It Be. Thier only real deviation on The White Album was "Revolution 9," and we all know how that turned out…still a fantastic album, without question. Happy listening! apple01

66 and 67. Revolver and Pepper's might just be my two favorite Beatles albums, and the singles and b-sides from that time are just too amazing!

1964/Beatlemania. As my signature says, I like all their old music. Everyone says "oh it all sounded the same then and their later stuff was so much more musically intelligent" But I think all the old stuff is great! To me, the drugs just did no good. The music just got REALLY trippy after that. a-hard-days-night-ringo-13(and drugs scare me).  I still like the '65 and later music, but am SUPER picky about what songs I like. (basically, the ones that make sense and are not trippy are good to me.) So yeah, I feel all special with my weird opinions.

I liked The Beatles before it was cool. (as in, I like all their music before 1965. I mean, I still like their later stuff but am very picky about what songs I like, while their older stuff I love it all. I am just not a fan of drugged out Beatles. Drugs scare me.)
