I've always said that McCartney had the best discography of the Beatles, post 1970.  However, I spent a lot of time listening to John's early discography the last few days, and now I'm focusing on George's.  I've always said that All Things Must Pass is the best solo album, and John's Whatever Gets You Through the Night, or maybe Ringo's It Don't Come Easy, the best single song.  Right now I might have to pick George's discography.  I'll revisit Paul's pre 1980 stuff in the next few days.

George

1971-72 were my George listening years.    All Things Must Pass and The Concert for Bangladesh.   That's SIX lp's of music.

I dug into Dark Horse through Somewhere in England today.  Great discography.  Tomorrow I’ll revisit Gone Troppo and Brainwashed.

So out of the gate, John Lennon released the excellent Plastic Ono Band, which was basically him being freed from Paul's pop sensibilities.  George was no longer limited to one or two songs per album, and he released a true 10/10, All Things Must Pass.  Take out Maybe I'm Amazed, perhaps the most beautiful love song ever, and Paul released essentially a demo of unfinished tracks.

Brainwashed is my second favorite Harrison album. I think it's great how he was able to bookend his career with his two best

I saw Phish last December at MSG for the first time.  I wanted the Phull Phish experience so I bought a floor ticket and got there early so I could get as close to the stage as possible.  I was within 50 feet of the stage and danced/moved my ass off.

I found this video on youtube.  Maybe sitting back in the seats gives you a better visual. Ah, there's nothing like getting as close to the band as possible.

Pretty nice of Ringo considering what Harrison did with his wife only a year prior

What's the more ridiculous album attribution in terms of contribution to quality?  Paul and Linda McCartney or John Lennon and Yoko Ono?

I don't know if I'd go that far, but I think it is true that George's discography is much more consistent than any other of the Beatles'.

Bowie does a bunch of impressions of other singers...

I still think most of them sound like Bowie, lol.

The last 20 years of Paul McCartney's solo career has been his most consistent.

I recommend listening to this song any time you're having a rough go of it.  Love the Blackbird acoustic and foot tapping vibe:

Wings Over America is a criminally underrated mid-70s live album.
