'66-'69. Revolver onwards.

 

Recently, I've been growing in my appreciation fo their Merseyside years and how they evolved from that period to Rubber Soul and beyond.

I'm not a girl who misses much.

1962-1967

 

I think they looked happier, and actually enjoyed working with each other in the Early Days and the Pyschedelic (or however you spell it) period. The later days were just miserable for them.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8I read that as "mith hard to say mith no' for some reason. a-hard-days-night-george-9

Beginning through "Help."

To me, that's a single "period" although it could be carved up I suppose.

I like much of the later stuff, but my appreciation starts to become on a song-by-song basis as they start to fragment and experiment.

"Another Girl" is tap-your-feet with the mellow Lennon-McCartney melancholy.

But listen to the rhythm.  It's sort of buried in the production depending on what you're listening to, but it must be agreed that this song is relentless, stomping, everyone in sync except some doofus wandering off on lead guitar . . . George let loose, maybe.  Paul, Ringo, and John in overdrive. Ringo rides the cymbals here, moves the piece from hard rock to rockabilly or something.  Or George Martin turned a plodding and introspective dirge into a hit song!

I like the early years though (1962 – 1966), but I prefer the time around Abbey Road and Let It Be (and maybe The White Album).

1966 and 1967. Revolver and Sgt. Pepper's are my two favorite albums of theirs, and I think their best singles were released during this time (except not making Yellow Submarine the b-side).

It's gotta be '65 and '66 for me: John's songwriting--and, arguably, his vocal performance--was at its peak; George was beginning to find his own groove in songwriting and discovering his overall musical direction; Paul was able to contribute "Eleanor Rigby" to the list of Beatles classics; and Ringo was doing some massive drum work in songs such as "Rain" and "Tomorrow Never Knows". The music quality itself was going in a different direction, setting the bar higher for pop music than had ever been expected in history…and they all looked darn good while taking it there!

Agreed wholeheartedly. Why are Rubber Soul and Revolver such great albums? Because they're so balanced, with John and Paul contributing equal amounts of (arguably) equal quality, and George also beginning to write some truly great material. On most other Beatles albums, there is a dominant songwriter, but in '65 and '66 they were the best they had ever been- as a GROUP.

I agree, on the first 4 british albums john was the best songwriter, then john and paul were equally good and paul was the best (I'd say until yesterday today (even if it wasn't a british album) and from (the american) revolver onwards paul was the best songwriter (although george was also very good on their last three albums (White Album, Abbey Road and let it be). Because I'm more of a mccartney and harrison fan I prefer the last three albums (again not counting yellow submarine) in which they two were the best.

mine is the period from 1965 with Rubber Soul right up til 1967 when they ended the year with Magical Mystery Tour.

this was when the beatles started to develop musically and went from pop stars to cultural icons. during this period i think the beatles produced there best work they had stopped touring and went on to make two of the greatest albums there will ever be revolver and Sgt Pepper

in these two years the beatles forged there legacy that will surely live forever
