agreed! everyone here seems to minimize those early beatles albums - like nothing mattered until they became 'arty' and rebelled against themselves. they perfected the pop song structure, and explored more chord progressions and musical arrangements in those first few albums then anyone before. and don't forget how good the songs were - 'hard day's night', 'please please me', 'i'm only sleeping', 'loser', '8 days a week', 'all my loving'. don't get me wrong, i absolutely love the late beatles and all that jazz, but it's funny to see so many completely forget about the formitive years. kinda like saying forget all the u2 before the movie (r&h) - they were just becoming cartoon characters of themselves. only check out the albums they made after they became sick of who they were - that's the only shit worth hearing. u2's career is defined as much by sunday bloody sunday, bad, and i will follow as the beatles career and legacy was defined by any of the songs listed above.

Much like U2, there are several paths your journey of enlightenment may take you down.

Here is what I suggest. See if you can borrow or sample (listening in-store) to one of these Beatles albums that I like to think of as starting points. The Beatles have a very diverse catalogue, and if you try to take the entire thing in at once you might me daunted.

I whipped up this charming flow chart to assist you in discovering the most amazing thing to happen to the 20th century.

I kind of envoy the point that you're at, as there is so much to discover and fall in love with.

Good choice.

Very, very nice flow chart! I think I'll start with Abbey Road. You've all been so helpful!

when I was a kid (way back when), I think I started with the Red Collection 1962-66 and the Blue 1967-70. But that was the 70s

I like it when Lila repeats herself in a thread...we know, we know you like the Red and Blue albums...gotcha

I had the Red album, actually cassette...and some Mofo stole it at a party. Will you burn me a copy?
