I'm sure you Beatles fans already know this but Abbey Road was the last album recorded by the Beatles. Although Let it Be was released after Abbey Road it was recorded prior to the Abbey Road sessions.

Talking about the Beatles at work the other day, my buddy and I started looking at the track listings. Starting with "Revolver", their records are pretty much devoid of flyovers. So from 1966 through 1970, they released seven studio albums (including a double LP). Let's exclude "Yellow Submarine" for a moment, because that was largely a movie soundtrack. What you are left with is a collection of some of the best and most important works in the history of popular music.

Four years, six albums, 90 songs. Changed the world.

Also, when I worked at EMI one of my good friends was a catalog title producer/A&R guy, . He was an absolutely massive Beatles fan, and appeared several times on a local radio show called "Breakfast With The Beatles" (which was produced by a buddy of mine who worked at Capitol Studios, in the Tower). He passed away quite suddenly in 2000, and at his service there was a big picture of him from behind.... singing the guest log at Abbey Road Studios. It remains one of my personal favorite photographs of all time, just such a perfect moment captured.

I agree. The same can perhaps be said of Bob Dylan from Bringing It All Back Home through Nashville Skyline. No fillers. Every album chock full of substantive and usually brilliant stuff.

AND, for both the Beatles and Dylan, there was a lot of fantastic stuff left off of the albums: either released as singles, recorded for later albums, picked up by other artists, or just compiled as outtakes.

The gushing output of A+ material, all during roughly the same time period, was astonishing.
