what's you guys faves? What album should I start with? Just curious what your opinions are...
Depends... Do you like bubblegum, standards, or trippy?
A good starting point to cover all the basics is getting the "Red" (1962-1966) compilation set, and the equivalent "Blue" (1967-1970) set.
My parents were both Beatles fans and I rejected them for about 22 years of my life until I 'got it'.. I had to start backwards. Mom loved the pre-White album stuff and I just cant stand their pre Revolver output myself (sorry as far as 60s rock goes Im a Who guy). First album I owned was Abbey Road and it 'clicked' so I worked my way from Abbey Road down to Revolver and those are the ones I own.
IMHO cant go wrong with Let It Be, The Beatles, Abbey Road, and then hit up Magical Mystery Tour for a good bit of Beatles psychedelia (Blue Jay Way FTW!!)..
EDIT: Actually now that I think of it.. A good 'starter kit' would be the two 'greatest hits' albums, the red and blue ones. I only own the blue one which is 1967-1970, but theyve both got a good selection of good stuff including alot of the singles you wont find on the regular albums..
If I want to hold your hand ain't bubblegum, I don't know what is.
