I have to vote for All Things Must Pass.
Just a great listen from beginning to end.
For me its probably "Plastic Ono Band" for the long haul, but currently it's this Ringo gem
Funny you should ask. I just listened to it a few hours ago:
I am "more of a Lennon guy," whatever that means...but this McCartney album is my favorite post-Beatles solo album.
I love Wonderwall Music a lot too.
Lennon had a couple of really good solo albums IMO.
All Things Must Pass is just OK to me.
It would have sounded better without the Phil Spector wall of mud.
All Things Must Pass gets my vote for best solo album, and Harrison gets my vote for best songwriter, too.
My Top 10 Beatles solo albums:
1 George - All Things Must Pass
2 John - Plastic Ono Band
3 George - Living In The Material World
4 Paul - Band On The Run
5 John - Imagine
6 John - Rock and Roll
7 Ringo - Ringo
8 Paul - Ram
9 Paul - Venus & Mars
10 George - Cloud Nine
Even with that wall it was a damned good album.
All Things Must Past. Easily the best supporting cast of any of the post-Beatle efforts. Maybe with the exception of Elvis Costello with McCartney...
Venus and Mars
All Things Must Pass
Plastic Ono Band
I don't know...some good and some clunkers on all of them. I'd like to see a compilation of all the good ones.
Ever Heard the bootleg "Beware of ABKCO"? Early demos from George, many of which ended up spruced up on All Things Must Pass
I have just a few posters in my music room to decorate things a bit. They are from Abbey Road, Allman Bros at Fillmore East and All Things Must Pass. That album still amazes me every time I listen to it.
I have to agree with the poster who mentioned "Brainwashed". It may not be my favorite, but certainly the one I've listened to the most over the years. It is a really good album.
Best Album Cover...
Ram is my favorite
Apparently, I am a minority of one. Venus & Mars is my favourite.
Since "Brainwashed" has only been mentioned twice, I get the feeling many here have never heard it.
To me, the way it ends really puts a period on George's life.
I'm ducking in advance, but I have fond college memories of Red Rose Speedway - it's no Band On The Run, but it's nicely recorded and there's some tasteful guitar playing from the late Henry McCullough.
I kind of agree too, lot's of great songs but....
As far as a complete album goes and the best complete listening experience (Album rock?), for me it's McCartney's Ram.
