The old Beatles vs Stones argument.  The Beatles are historic in their importance in music - not just rock.  They will be remembered a century from now, like the great composers of the past.  But for me personally, I will take the Stones any time over the Beatles.  Their music has always meant more to me and appealed to me more than the Beatles.  That being said I was a little too young to get caught up in Beatlemania and when they broke up I was just really getting into music, so I understand the devotion to the Beatles that so many have.

Thought about buying Beggars Banquet at the record store today, but unfortunately only copy they had is the overpriced 50th anniversary edition with a bonus 12 inch of Sympathy For The Devil b/w Mick saying hello on Japanese radio or something. I mean, that's cool, but it's not 47 bucks cool. I'll be keeping an eye out for anything under 20 though. Great album.

Pretty well says it for me. There's only a couple of Beatles albums I'll listen to anymore, one of them incidentally a 1968 release. I was in high school during the early '80's during the Beatles revival and bought a stack of their records. I soon tired of most of them. The Stones just have more staying power with me.

Why is a thread entitled Happy 50th Beggars Banquet a Beatles vs. Stones topic?

hmm let me think.  Someone brought up the string of Beatles lps and said that output was better.  I and others disagree.  And so I brought up one of the oldest "rivalries" in music.  Hey sometimes these threads take a left turn.

For some I guess the comparison is inevitable

The blue compilation is really good enough for me.  The rest I can take as singles.

It would be like a Chevy thread. Someone will say Ford.

That's pretty good. Covers most of the territory I'd want. Strawberry Fields is just about the only thing released in '67 I find listenable. White album onward is decent.
