Beatles albums

Hey

I have heard many Beatles songs but dont have any of their albums, or know which ones to get. Can you guys help? If you suggest your favourite/the best 3 albums by the Beatles it would help me a lot. Cheers.

All the proper albums from Rubber Soul to Let It Be are completely essential. Pick whichever ones you want from that set. They all rule. You can't go wrong.

(For the sake of it, I'll rank 'em:
  • Revolver
  • The White Album
  • Rubber Soul
  • Let It Be
  • Magical Mystery Tour
  • Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
  • Abbey Road

But I'm weird. Most people would rank Abbey Road (much) higher and Magical Mystery Tour and Let It Be lower.)

Well, I wouldn't exactly know about Magical Mystery Tour, Yellow Submarine or Let It Be.
But Rubber Soul, Revolver, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, The Beatles (a.k.a. The White Album) and Abbey Road are quite essential.
I think with those five and the 1 compilation you have a good collection.

Well, Yellow Submarine doesn't count. And the other two are totally awesome.

The two Past Masters volumes are also pretty crucial, but you can score most of that with the 1 compilation, as you say.

-revolver
-sgt pepper
-help
-let it be

i know you asked for 3 but those are probably my 4 favorite. also the past masters or 1 collections are good to have since a lot of their singles weren't included on albums.

I'm in the same boat as well. I just started off with the greatest hits and went to used record stores and worked my way up from there.

My three favorites are

Rubber Soul
Revolver
Let it Be

I know many people consider Sgt Pepper's to be their peak, so you might want to get that one too, but it's personally not one of my favorites.

Abbey Road, Sgt. Pepper's and Revolver would start you off pretty well.

If you want 3 excellent albums, you can't go wrong with:

1. Abbey Road
2. Sgt. Peppers
3. Revolver

But if you want familiar songs, you might really enjoy Magical Mystery Tour. Even though it's not exactly a cohesive album, many times it's the one I like the most!
