Admittedly played just on my iPad - but sounding really good. Hard to pick just one, but Rubber Soul is probably my favorite.
Rubber Soul is a great album... maybe my favourite Beatles album... my top three picks from it would be
* Drive My Car
* If I Needed Someone
but the rest would be close runners-up (The Word is the weakest link IMHO).
You’ve got a nice taste, sir! Drive my car, absolutely fantastinen piece. And off from your list, Nowhere man. The strat quack and singing harmonies makes me drool.
Playing the second one from your list with vintage correct guitar/saddles (360/12C63), oh man, it makes me cry every time I play it. I’d probably better off with 12 saddle bridge. But it’d not vintage correct, so I’m between the rock and a hard place.
But The Word has the awesome funky psychedelic harmonium solo performed by George Martin! It is the most experimental track on the album and a harbinger of the psychedelic turn soon to come.
It’s not a bad weak link to have imho! I do like almost everything about it: just can’t quite rate it as highly as the others.
Rubber Soul is my favorite Beatles album. Timeless...
The only 12-string I have is an acoustic, If I Needed Someone is fun to play on that: and definitely something I will be playing when I get my hands on an electric 12-string sometime...
Great album to listen to all the way.
Fave 3 (could change any day):
In My Life
Drive My Car
Rubber Soul and Revolver have been my two favs since high school.
so many people pick rubber soul and revolver as their faves...i do as well
"The Word" seems the most Stax-ey song in Rubber Soul.
And there's the Db7#9 (Hendrix chord) in the opening statement. This is 1965. Isn't this the first use of the #9 in Beatles music?
But the resolution... G/A to A, F/G to G, is kind of Motown to me.
Maybe they liked both kinds of R&B, country and western.
Same here-and I was in high school in the mid 80s.
Ditto here as well!
The first Beatles album without a cover song. Love it.
Drive My Car is great rock!
Their songwriting creativity had matured, and Rubber Soul was concrete evidence that there was no going back. Revolver was a natural evolution of that process. I could never pick 3 from either. Those albums were the Crown Jewels of an amazing career.
I love George's "Think for yourself"....by far my favorite from the record.
Actually A Hard Days Night was the first all original Lp by The Fab 4
