Beatles solo career

well well well...

I have heard besides the must acclaimed records of them (All things must pass, Plastic Ono Band...) a Lennon compilation and Paul`s last album. Is posible that the material in a compilation could be as good as a Beatles album?? (well not as good but entertaining enougth) example: a not so good "White album" of course without the abused of Jonhs songs, other way it could be too easy (i think)...

Re: Beatles solo career

Yeah Stone, "the back seat of my car" at #5, good choice !
I love this song !
Do you like "waterfalls" ? It's on the album "McCartney II".

Re: Beatles solo career

I am not too familiar with that track. I did dig up my copy of McCartney II and have listened to it a couple of times today. Other than "Coming Up," "Waterfalls" is clearly the album's highlight. Thanks for the reference.

By the way, your Beach Boys top 20 was excellent. "Our Sweet Love" and "Please Don't Let We Wonder" are two of the most gorgeous records ever.
