John: Plastic Ono Band, and Imagine

Paul: Ram , Band On The Run , and Tug Of War

George: All Things Must Pass , and Living In The Material World

Ringo: Ringo, and Goodnight Vienna (Photograph is a pretty good compilation)

I think this lot looks pretty good for anyone to start with, though I would personally prefer 'Cloud 9' to 'Material World', or even the 'Let it Roll' compilation if you want a fairly decent survey of George's work.  I love Ram though, it has aged very well.

Uproxx.com's list of the ten best solo Beatles albums. Overall pretty much standard selections, maybe two could be debated - 'Double Fantasy ' and 'New'.

Ringo should always be included with 'Ringo'. Any list of best Beatles albums would just show the writer to be flawed in his/her choices.

My favorite solo album of John's is Plastic Ono Band, A jus love that album an thats one of the too albums of his A can lisen to strait through (the othr one is Imagine )

My favorite solo album of Paul's would probably be Ram , A cant relly esplain why, but A just reelly like this album. Band On The Run is great to, although I'm not so keen on Picassos Last Words and Mamunia is good, but it goes to long, in ma opinyin. Another one A really like is Chaos And Creation In The Backyard , all tha songs are fantastic on this one, it's prolly a really close second.

My favorite album of George's is Living In The Material World. A love this album, and Give Me Love(Give Me Peace on Earth) is one of my favorite George songs, and the title track is really good to, A like all tha songs off ths album. All Things Must Pass is also one of ma favorit George albums, though so I'd say ma favorite is torn between those two albums.

My favorite Ringo album is Ringo, although I have yet to lisen to all his albums, as of now I've prolly only ever listened to about sevn of them or so, so it's my favorite of all the albums of his that I've heard. Anyroad, I relly like the album Ringo, and my favorite song on it as of right now would be I'm The Greatest, and A've been lisening to this song alot lately.

 My faves haven't really changed since then, but I think I like NEW better than I like RAM.

I feel like I should go back to using "A" for "I". I really appreciate the aesthetic appeal of it.a-hard-days-night-paul-7

I think NEW is a great album. I could easily understand it being your favorite solo album of Paul's.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, let it roll for all its worth. And all the children boogie.

best solo beatles album: All Things Must Pass

my favorite: Ram

I must credit john though for making some of my favorite albums like Plastic Ono Band, Imagine , Walls And Bridges , and yes Double Fantasy . I think John Absolutely killed it on that album, however its hard to listen to on vinyl because I can't skip the Yoko tracks.

Wings At The Speed Of Sound is the most underrated in my opinion. I love "She's My Baby." Pauls solo career kicks ass.
