I think George was the MVP on this album, however, I agree with Quarryman that all four did some of their best work playing and writing on this album.

Sir Walter, I completely agree that George shone on this album in all of his songs. Listening to it, it seems like he came into his own as as good a songwriter as John and Paul. This momentum rose and peaked when he released All Things Must Pass

And without his masterful guitarwork and songwriting help, Octopus Garden would be bland and forgettable. But with George's intro lick and playing on the whole song, I cannot keep from smiling when I hear it.

And here I thought Dark Overlord was taking a break from the forum. I'm pretty sure George played it though since its kind of a lead lick, and he is credited with lead guitar.

I'm pretty sure it's George, considering he's credited and it sounds much more in his style than John's. 

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, girls. He was a valuable participant on the track team. He is one of Freeport's great contributors to the recording world. As for the immediate future, QuarryMan has no plans, but will take life as it comes.

For me, it's between Paul and George,but I'm leaning more towards George, just for Something alone. I love that song

I like what they all brought to the table, but I’d have to go with Paul on this one. His contributions were significant here.

The Best Beatle on the album was obviously the Beetle behind George a-hard-days-night-john-6paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif

 

But seriously, i think Paul really Shone the most on this LP

Paul has so many great songs, and John did too, but two of George's very best songs ever are on this LP, and so is the best Ringo-written song. 

Love one another.
