GUEST,Sidewinder. Most Influential Album? (320* d) RE: Most Influential Album? 31 Dec 05

I profer several Beatles albums in answer to this thread -included are;

1) Abbey Road - "Here Comes The Sun" forces folkies everywhere to go out and buy a Capo!

2) Help!- "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away" is the perfect folk song.Come to think of it- so is "Help!".

3) Let It Be - "Two Of Us" are still going nowhere spending someones hard earned pay and "Across The Universe" just is.

4) Beatles For Sale - "I Don't Want To Spoil The Party" I've had a drink or two and I don't care and the lyrics are still utilised to this day.

5) White Album - "Happiness Is A Warm Gun" is as stark a warning as you can get to stay away from Heroin. With an obvious tip of the hat to Mr Zimmerman.

6) Rubber Soul - This album is a marriage of convenience between pop and folk and serves to this day as the one Beatles album that folkies will go out and buy and not crucify.And "Norwegian Wood" makes you want to become a busker or join "The Spinners".

I may choose to continue in this rich literary vein or hand over the honours to another like minded Beatles afficianado. Who knows ? Who cares ? I don't!

Happy New Year.
