The Beatles are one of my favourite bands so I thought I’d have a go at ranking their studio albums. There were eleven in total, not including Magical Mystery Tour and Yellow Submarine which aren’t considered “proper” albums or the US only releases that many of you reading this will know. The eleven albums that follow are their major albums, and the ranking is my opinion only. I go from “worst” to best. Let me know your thoughts.
The opening song from Abbey Road is one of John’s finest moments on the album and I previously posted an isolated track article earlier this year featuring his isolated vocals from the song. However this article focuses instead on Ringo and his superb drumming. Below you can hear the full isolated drum track in its full glory. Take a listen:
For a new series of articles I pick my top five favourite albums from each decade from the 1960’s onwards. Starting with the 1960’s is exciting because it’s my favourite decade for music and it was going to be tough trying to narrow down my selection to only five albums. After careful consideration I was able to do it with the following five albums making the cut.
Originally rehearsed during the Get Back sessions, The Beatles properly started recording the song during the Abbey Road album sessions on the 20th April 1969.

Beatles isolated tracks are some of the best around and for this isolated article we have the vocal track from Birthday. Recorded at Abbey Road Studios on the 18th September 1968, the song was released on the White Album and features wonderful vocals not only by The Beatles themselves but two ‘guest’ vocalists in Pattie Harrison and Yoko Ono.
My previous isolated track article focused on the orchestration from All You Need Is Love which provided a wonderful insight into George Martin’s contributions as the fifth Beatle. With this article we turn to the band themselves, the bass and drums to be specific. What we have below is the isolated bass with the drums from All You Need Is Love. Take a listen:
