The Beatles last five LPs were 1967′s Magical Mystery Tour, 1968′s The White Album, 1969′s Yellow Submarine and Abbey Road, and 1970′s Let It Be. Below you will find short overviews of each of them.
All of these albums are contained in the Remastered Beatles Stereo Box Set and Magical Mystery Tour and The White Album are contained in the Remastered Beatles Mono Box Set.
Magical Mystery Tour (1967) – I think this is an underrated album and that’s probably because it is not really a true album so people have a difficult time giving it real respect for the excellent songs on it. It is the Fab Four at their most purposefully psychedelic before they began to pull back the experimentation a bit and as someone who loves psychedelia, that makes it an obvious favorite of mine.
The White Album (1968) – I’ve probably listened to this album more times than any other in my life. No, it doesn’t flow as well as Sgt. Pepper or Abbey Road and one could certainly make an argument that it’s not as consistently great as Revolver or Rubber Soul but I love listening to it because of the fantastic variety of music that it brings to my ears. This 30 song album is a real work of art.
Yellow Submarine (1969) – This “album” isn’t really a Fab Four album as it includes only four Beatles trackss that weren’t already released on a previous album. Yet “It’s All Too Much” and “Hey Bulldog” make it worth buying.
Abbey Road (1969) – This 17 track album is the favorite of many Beatles fans and for many very good reasons. The most clear is the fantastic “suite” of side two which was really pieced together by George Martin and Paul McCartney. And of course there are the classic stand alone tracks like “Something,” “Come Together,” and “Here Comes The Sun.” Abbey Road is also the most smooth and most “modern” production of The Beatles career.
Let It Be (1970) – The final album released but Abbey Road was actually the last Beatles album that was recorded. It is a bit uneven by their very high standards but it still contains some classic tracks like “Let It Be” and “Across The Universe.”
