A cover I really like but almost forgot is the With the Beatles/ Meet the Beatles black and white cover photo. Very artsy and moody. Not bad for 1963.

My favorites were the American releasd capitol lable lps...The Beatles 2nd album(1964) and the Beatles IV(1965) they were just too Kool. And in the interest of not appearing tasteless....I like the buther cover for  the Yesterday.....and Today lp. As for the best post break up...well hands down the silver reflecive Rock and Roll music double lp set(1976) not only great music but the classic classic americana ,drive in graphics.....quite simply on of the best designs covers ever.

'Abbey Road', yet it strikes me as funny that it became such an iconic cover. I wonder if would've been the same if the album was one of their worst.

Interesting point ... and I wonder if it helps to make the album 'great' ?

I don't think any album cover has that power. After all, it's just a picture.

I agree! I spent a lot of time studying those when I was a little kid. It's hard to choose from among the other albums but I really like the cover of "Please Please Me" and the story that goes with it. It's also neat that it was later recreated for the blue album.

Rubber Soul and A Hard Day's Night.

Sgt. Pepper and Magical Mystery Tour are my joint second pairing.

Beatles For Sale - just for the composition, the expressions on the boys' faces and for the colours.  The music is lovely too  ;D

Funny, I've always thought 'Abbey Road' to be their least "sunny" record. 'Here Comes The Sun' is the obvious exception, but other than that, not much happiness or optimism there.

I think I have to go with Revolver!
To me it has everything a Beatle fan could want. Hard rock, classicalish, love songs Indian etc... all laid out with awesome musicianship. You can here a bit of everything in there.

I think Sun King has a tropical laid back vibe (isnt there even cicadas in the background) ? 'Because' has 'because the sky is Blue' etc and Octopuses garden reminds me of summer somehow, the opening guitar riff sounds bright and happy....the whole thing to me (guitar tones) has a bright blue sky feel - maybe its just me ;)

Seeing as it's just the one choice, I'd have to go for Abbey Road, Rubber Soul and Revolver  ;D

I rather like the simplicity of 'With The Beatles'.

The group were better served on their original LPs than with the various compilations over the years.
'20 Greatest Hits', '1', 'Past Masters 1 & 2' - dull, 'Reel Music' - dire, and I didn't care too much for the 'Anthology' artwork.

However, the two 'Live at the BBC' records were beautifully presented and could easily fit in between the early LPs.
