Sgt. Pepper ‘s Lonely Hearts Club Band because it’s also a concept album where all of the songs sound different.

HELP! would be the start off point I’d choose. Has the pop and rock razzle dazzle combined with the more sofisticated material emerging.

Unless Paul McCartney knocks on my door I am unlikely to be impressed.

I’d say Rubber Soul because I feel it’s the bridge between their earlier poppy sound and what would become the groundwork for the later albums, although I think that could be said of HELP! too.

  

I agree. Rubber Soul would be my choice too.

I would go with Abbey Road . It’s the safest choice to go with. It’s also the album of theirs I have borrowed out to people the most.

I think it has to be Rubber Soul …. there are so many ‘hits’ on there, even though there were no singles taken from it! It is a very accessible album, more so probably than Revolver , which is my favourite album?

Help or A Hard Days Night would be perfect to show someone the earlier style.

Abbey Road is a masterpiece but I would prefer giving people something more in the middle of their career rather than the end.
