My favourite Beatles are John and George but i would be hard pushed to argue Paul's solo catalogue isnt better overall but thats probably because there is far more.

Walls And Bridges is over-produced, the outtakes without all the gunk on top are incredible, Mind Games has the same problem but to a lesser accent on the incredible, Some Time In New York City dreadful, Rock n Roll just below average, Double Fantasy and Milk And Honey are good when i remove Yoko and turn it into a John only LP.

Oh gosh I know, Yoko ruins John's later records for me, I have to skip her songs they are  just blue-meanie

John's solo output is pretty poor overall...Plastic Ono Band is a great album,
Imagine has some great cuts and a lot of filler, and Walls And Bridges is great, but apart from a handful of tracks, the rest of it is lousy. George really tailed off, quality-wise, after Living in the Material World, again apart from a handful of tracks.

I agree one hundred percent with this.

The library's a great option, isn't it? I just got a notice that Ram is on hold for me.

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.

Ever heard it before? Not only do I think it's the best album any of them ever made after the split, I honestly put it up against any Beatles album.  In my opinion, it's flawless, especially when the non-album Another Day/Oh Woman Oh Why single is included.

Another Day is fun to play on the guitar, and yet again the B7 chord is utilised here.

Yes, I've heard it on YouTube a couple of times, so I'm looking forward to hearing it properly.

Sorry -- the only proper way to hear Ram is to walk to a record store, and buy the LP, then take it back home and put it on a turn-table.
