Default Album Love Order

My first love was Abbey Road, and for many years. Next, like my profile image gives away, it was Rubber Soul. I find myself drifting to The Beatles (The White Album).

So yeah...

Abbey Road
Rubber Soul
White Album

That's how my evolution of favorites has... evolved.

Not to say I don't love all, it's just like flavor of the moment.

What's yours?

The White Album was the first CDs I ever purchased with my own money - 1st part time job as a teenager. It reigned for YEARS.

Sgt Pepper briefly took over when I was about 20 and lasted a few years. Singles dominated for a loooong time after that, especially as mix CDs became easier to make and you could essentially build your own albums. This was pre iPod btw.

Abbey Road is king today, and will never be dethroned by the looks of things.

Funny, I had Abbey Road as an eight-track tape as a kid so, similar scenario. The 'Blue Album' was my first purchase with my own money, but it doesn't count (IMHO) as an album, nor did I love it as such.

Default ..."You know what I mean."

Back in the sixties my Dad owned a TV repair shop and sold records as well. Funny, I remember the "Blue" albums (Red Foxx and such) were kept under the counter and customers had to ask for them. One day Dad came home with "Meet The Beatles" which was a big deal since all "my" records were 45's. I wore that thing out. Paul's lead-in, ("One, two, three ... fawr") into "I Saw Here Standing There" really hooked me. It was a song like none other I'd ever heard. They knew who their audience was and their young raw energy came through their music in "spades". Sure they evolved as did their music (no Beatle album is bad IMHO) but still... after almost fifty years ...
my favorite? ... well, has to be my first. "You know what I mean."
