    Another vote for All Things Must Pass, followed by Imagine and Pauls first solo effort McCartney.

    They're still albums. "Album" ≠ 12" vinyl. "Album" = collection, and you can have an album on a CD.

    'All things must pass' by a mile. Probably followed somewhere down the line by plastic ono band.

    I think it shouldn't be a surprise that he put out such a stellar album. Though his Beatles contributions were pretty sparse, he is responsible for Something, Here Comes the Sun, While My Guitar Gently Weeps, Love You To and If I needed Someone. Which, imho, are some of the group's most iconic tunes.

    Could not agree more on these two albums, and I dont care for McCartney much at all either. Even most his songs in the Beatles I dont love, and he is my least favorite Beatle.... So needless to say REALLY dont like wings...

    Lennon's Rock and Roll was decent, but the Spector-produced wall of sound on "What is Life" (ATMP) is probably my favorite Beatles number, individually, jointly, or severally.

    All things must pass is tough to beat

    Can we count "Concert for Bangladesh"?

    I'll say this, "Beware of Darkness" is my favorite solo Beatles tune, especially the version on "Concert for Bangladesh"...
