For nostalgia reasons: Abbey Road
For Quality: Revolver

That is such a tough call on so many levels.
The Beatles for the weirdness

Revolver for the quality, as noted above

Sgt. Pepper for the commercial viability and trend-setting nature


Their later years were certainly more cultured and varied than the early stuff. Although my favorite all-time Beatles song is "Can't Buy Me Love".

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

Exactly my choices. White album's weirdness makes it my favourite

Magical Mystery Tour is probably my favorite, has been since I was a kid. I know it's not a "proper Beatles LP" but, it's really good!

.

Of the early albums I think Hard Day's Night is fantastic. People talk about Rubber Soul being the first time they noticed them working in "albums", where every song was good and there was a lot of variety and careful sequencing, but I think Hard Day's Night has all that, even earlier.

Rubber soul for the musical diversity and experimentation and Revolver for the depth.

There is some logic in that. And the horns at the beginning of "All You Need Is Love" remind me of the intro horns on "Christopher Tracy's Parade", as well as the intro drums on "Magical Mystery Tour".

There are also some similarities with Parade and St. Pepper's, with the songs blending one to another, etc. I see wehre people go to ATWIAD w/ the Pepper similarities, but frankly Parade feels more like Pepper than ATWIAD in many ways. But we also know ATWIAD & Parade are close sisters. Purple Rain & ATWIAD have the same father, but ATWIAD & Parade have the same mother.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

Yeah a "Hard Days Night" is on my top 3 and Magical Mystery tour is great!

That one's up there for me too actually, underrated. If i had to pick one though, it has to be "Abbey Rd".

We're here, might as well get into it.

Front to back good even Flying is good.

Download all the shit hop that you can for your kids, neices, nephews, and their friends also. That will prevent them from going out and buying it and will prevent some shit hop sales. Every little bit helps - Andy
