Plenty on YouTube doing what John recommended. However where they almost always fail is by spreading track selection over several, sometimes many years. Has anyone ideas for e.g. a 1970 pick of the solo material, then each subsequent year to 1975? I'd suspect 1972 would be tricky and 1973 a potential double! Thanks.

OK, I realise I probably should have started by posting my own personal choices, so here are my 1970 and 1971 albums. I stuck to a few self-imposed rules:

  • The album should theoretically be able to fit on one LP (limit: 60 minutes, 30 minutes per side)
  • It should contain 14 tracks (based on most common number from early Beatles albums)
  • It should contain two tracks by George
  • It should contain one track by Ringo
  • The remainder should be John and Paul, 5 or 6 each dependant upon taste or proliferation
  • If possible preference should be given to tracks penned by a Beatle

1970:

Side A

1 Instant Karma ! (3:18)
2. Every Night (2:31)
3. Mother (5:34)
4. Isn't It A Pity (Version 2) (4:45)
5. Junk (1:54)
6. Coochy Coochy (4:48)
7. Love (3:21)

Side B

1. Momma Miss America (4:04)
2. That Would Be Something (2:38)
3. I Found Out (3:37)
4. Teddy Boy (2:22)
5. All Things Must Pass (3:44)
6. Remember (4:33)
7. Maybe I'm Amazed (3:53)

Side A 28:11 Side B 24:51 Total (without breaks) 53:02

 

1971:

Side A

1. Monkberry Moon Delight (5:21)
2. Jealous Guy (4:14)
3. Uncle Albert /Admiral Halsey (4:49)
4. It Don't Come Easy (3:00)
5. Oh My Love (2:50)
6. Heart Of The Country (2:21)
7. Deep Blue (3:47)

Side B

1. Another Day (3:41)
2. Imagine (3:01)
3. Dear Friend (5:53)
4. My Sweet Lord (1971 single) (4:39)
5. Crippled Inside (3:47)
6. The Back Seat Of My Car (4:26)
7. Power To The People (3:15)

Side A 26:22 Side B 28:42 Total (without breaks) 55:04

 

Have you a different selection?

Excluding Take It Away and Wanderlust? Those are two of Paul’s best from that time.

Funny this thread should be made, I'm currently working on a tracklist for a  '73 album including tracks from Red Rose Speedway , Mind Games , LITMW and RINGO. Here's what I've come up with so far:

Side one 

1. Mind Games (John)

2. My Love (Paul)

3. Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth) (George)

4. Out Of The Blue (John)

5. Little Lamb Dragonfly (Paul)

 

Side two

6. Photograph (Ringo/George)

7. Living In The Material World (George)

8. You Are Here (John)

9. One More Kiss (Paul)

 

Clocks in at around 37 minutes in total. I would like to add two more songs from John and Paul, but don't know which ATM.

We have an existing thread very similar to this one but I forgot what it was called. I know someone who can find it quickly. It's time to light the "Librarian Signal".

If this is supposed to be the albums that would have been had The Beatles stayed together then I don't think it works this way. They wouldn't have written many of the songs they did after the breakup due to being in different life situations with different states of mind. You also have to take into consideration how The Beatles helped each other shape their songs in the studio. Even when they were not writing the music together, they still all had an influence on much of the songs on their albums.

Sorry for posting a topic that's been spoken about before but didn't realise it had popped up in 2014 and earlier - please merge if you like! I've put together my 1973 album and already broken one of my own self-imposed rules. The Ringo album is strong and with collaborations deserves two tracks, and Paul probably had his best solo year too so I've chosen six. However I personally found John's Mind Games to be a weaker collection of tracks so robbed John to pay Ringo. Thanks for indulging an old fool!

 

My selections are:

 

Side A

 

1. I'm The Greatest (3:21)

2. Jet (4:09)

3. Meat City (2:45)

4. My Love (4:07)

5. Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth) (3:25)

6. I Know (I Know) (3:49)

7. Live And Let Die (3:12)

 

Side B

 

1. Mind Games (4:13)

2. Bluebird (3:23)

3. Photograph (3:56)

4. Band On The Run (5:12)

5. Tight A$ (3:37)

6. Helen Wheels (3:44)

7. That Is All (3:43)

 

Side A 24:48 Side B 27:46 Total 52:34 (without breaks)

If we're talking 'mythical' in the sense of which each solo artists' songs would make "that next great Beatles album" beyond 'Abbey Road ' & 'Let It Be '...  it's pretty much clear from the outset that the, "the whole is greater than the sum of its parts"  notion is painstakingly obvious...  A "1970-1971' "compilation" may indeed be a bitter reminder of "what could've been"...  beyond that?  the "Myth" becomes slowly and surely eroded...  'Free As A Bird ' & 'Real Love ' upheld the "Myth"...  let's just leave it at that...:-)

I agree with this. I actually wrote an essay about this topic in a psychology class a few years ago and used The Beatles as my example.
