    How fitting! Now to find a copy of Let It Bleed that plays Let It Be and do a version of the old "hey, you got chocolate in my peanut butter!" "and you got peanut butter on my chocolate!" Reeses Peanut Butter Cups TV commercials! ;)

    When There's a tie on a numbered list you skip the next number.
    In this case after 1 comes 3.
    There is no 2.
    Otherwise you list 11 albums which goes against the rule of only 10.

    Don't trust too old posts of mine. After the White Album box set is in my collection that list might change.
    Although,...I love all Fabs albums equally, so my Top 10 list didn't make much sense in the first place.^^

    That is correct - it really doesn’t have a weak track. You can even add “I Call Your Name” (recorded during the album sessions) somewhere in the middle of side 2 and it is now a 14 track album of perfection.

    As I said, my Top 10 list probably didn't make much sense in the first place.
