    I'll go along with "All things Must Pass" though I really dig "Band on the Run" too...

    ....that being said, my favorite post beatles tune is "Junior's Farm"...killer guitar solo too.

    I really like 'Run Devil Run'. 'Choba CCCP' has some good moments too.
    The supporting cast in both cases are somewhat stellar.

    When they were together, they each didn't have to fill a whole album...maybe 6 songs from John, 5 from Paul, 2 from George, and toss a bone to Ringo. As solo acts, songs that would have been tossed aside as rubbish were suddenly needed as album filler.

    I think an old friend of mine may have played on that one...maybe uncredited...I've been meaning to check into that.

    Everything George did, I liked...
    Most things Paul did, I liked...

    Sorry to say, but nothing solo from John or Ringo has left an impact on me. Although I admire Ringo for his "All Star Band" tours, and the kids and I enjoyed him as the narrator and Mr Conductor on Shining Time Station :)

    Really love Cloud 9- it was the first Beatles solo album I ever really listened to a lot back in college. I've never listened to All Things Must Pass before, so I've added it to my daily "to do" list since so many of you list it as your favorite.

    Also John was able to filter out some of Paul’s material. Unfortunately not Your Mother Should Know.
