What are your current favorite Beatles and solo (the album should be credited to the solo Beatle only, so no John + Yoko, Paul + Linda, Wings) albums?  Also, note that I say "favorite," not "best."  This is about the ones you enjoy listening to, not what you think of as objectively their best work.

Mine:

Beatles: Revolver apple01

John Lennon: Walls and Bridges a-hard-days-night-john-4

Paul McCartney:  Pipes of Peaceahdn_paul_06

George Harrison:  Extra Texture (Read All About It) ahdn_george_06

Ringo Starr:  Beaucoups of Blues ahdn_ringo_09

*Yoko Ono:  Fly yoko-ono_01

Beatles: Revolver or White Album – varies from day to day

Paul: New (only because it is the only one (apart from Broad Street) which meets your criteria I have listened to so far – I'm not up to the 90s yet – so this WILL change, it would be Ram otherwise)

Ringo – Ringo

George – All Things Must Pass (almost George Harrison)

John – Plastic Ono Band (almost Mind Games)

Yeah, I just didn't want everybody to say Ram…which they would.

I would say Band on the Run if it was eligible.

BEATLES: Abbey Road

JOHN: Plastic Ono Band

PAUL: NEW

GEORGE: All Things Must Pass

RINGO: Ringo

It would be close – would have had Ram (almost Venus and Mars:)

As mentioned, haven't listened to anything post 1970 yet apart from Broad Street, so maybe Flaming Pie, Flowers in the Dirt etc. would come into it then.  I know I like the tracks I have heard off them – This One is one of my all-time favourite Paul tracks.

Oh, I love all the Wings albums and Ram as well.  Just trying to make it a little more interesting.  Flowers in the Dirt grew on me.  It has that very late 80's sound to it.  I don't know why I love Pipes of Peace so much--it's probably the prime example of why people say Paul McCartney is sappy.  I just can't get enough of "So Bad."

Nice track – I have only heard it in the Broad Street version which I hear is close, I have Pipes in the 'stack of stuff to catch up on'.

I have yet to listen to all the solo CDs to truly decide, but so far it would be:

Beatles: Let it Be … Naked

Paul: RAM

John: Plastic Ono Band

George: I really just know Living in the Material World, so I go with that

I'm not acquainted with Ringo's solo work I'm afraid.

The Beatles * the 'White Album', so much musical diversity in one package that I can never get enough of, most of the songs were written while secluded in India where The Beatles were free from the everyday pressures of being Beatles, the focus was back to writing songs again and it shows.

 

John Lennon * man, this is a tough one for I really can't decide between 'John Lennon Plastic Ono Band' or 'Imagine', I honestly can't decide on which is my favourite for they're both just so good.

 

Paul McCartney * I really don't have a favourite Paul McCartney album, I like a lot of Paul's solo work but a lot of it is also second-rate in my opinion, he never really did put out that one album which thrills me all the way through, even his compilation albums contain tracks that I skip over, his solo work is my least favourite of the four Beatles.

 

George Harrison * 'Brainwashed', probably my favourite solo Beatle album, I still listen to it regularly.

 

Ringo Starr * Ringo never made that one album which is a standout for me, I do listen to 'Blast From Your Past' often, but I'm not sure if a compilation album would count here so as with Paul, there's no favourite solo album of mine…:-)

The Beatles – A tie between Revolver and Rubber Soul.

Paul -Ram and I also love McCartney 2 and New.

John – Plastic Ono (no doubt)

George – All Things Must Pass and Brainwashed.

Ringo – I don't care about his solo stuff LOL.

Did John even do any solo albums that were separate from Yoko? I suppose Walls and Bridges, maybe?

For The Beatles, Revolver or Sgt. Pepper are usually my go-to albums.

With Paul (excluding Wings material), I tend to camp out on Flowers in the Dirt or Flaming Pie.

I find myself defaulting to Imagine for John, and Plastic Ono Band for a change of pace.

George's All Things Must Pass wins my attention almost every time. Sometimes it's Cloud Nine.

And Ringo? That would have to be Ringo, with the occasional showing of Y Not.

Not a bit like Cagney.

John did Walls and Bridges and Rock 'N' Roll when he was separated from Yoko.

Band On The Run doesn't qualify, it's credited to Paul McCartney & Wings. 

By the way, does anyone know what's up with the quoting? It puts me several lines below the original text

Hmmm… when I typed it, the distance between the quote and my typing was 

 

 

this.

But quoting you here it's back to normal, and that one seems to have posted OK, so I guess it's fine
