    Why would the word 'Beatles' be used? It's an EP of SOLO material. That 'B' word shouldn't be used.

    I agree. I never said it should be used, I just pointed out it wasn't.

    Very true. Obscenities like the 'B' word shouldn't be allowed on CD covers.

    This site lists a lot of charts, seems to match 112. I check a few others and they match the Wikipedia page, even has sales listings.

    Nah. As time goes on folks will care less and less for the Beatles as an entity. In other words they'll be less demand to group the four lads solo music together. If they did it now there would be some interest, curiosity if nothing else.

    Ultimately, the solo material will vanish long before the Beatles tunes are forgotten.

    Clearly the good Doctor is not deserving of a Tesla. Perhaps the attached will better fit his needs...

    I don't see these compilations ever coming out. When they did Beatles "1" which sold over 31 million copies worldwide, they missed their chance to release the Beatles Solo "1" using the same criteria. And could look something like this

    01. My Sweet Lord-GH
    02. Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey-PM
    03. Imagine-JL
    04. My Love-PM
    05. Give Me Love-GH
    06. Photograph-RS
    07. You're 16-RS
    08. Band On The Run-PM
    09. Whatever Gets You Through The Night-JL
    10. Listen To What The Man Said-PM
    11. Silly Love Songs-PM
    12. Mull of Kintyre-PM
    13. With A Little Luck-PM
    14. Coming Up ( Live at Glasgow)-PM
    15. (Just Like) Starting Over-JL
    16. Woman-JL
    17. Ebony And Ivory-PM and SW
    18. Pipes Of Peace-PM
    19. Say Say Say-PM and MJ
    20. Got My Mind Set On You-GH

    A double album 70-75 , Red/Blue style cover (four pics of each one alone on that balcony)
    One side for each member , not a mix of songs
    Even the Ringo side could be pretty with Photograph ,It don't come Easy , You're Sixteen ,I'm the Greatest,Back off Boogaloo

    We made this just shortly after Beatles "1" came out. We kept the Red & Blue and used the same criteria. This is not for sale, we made this for our own collection

    For you to take the time to go through all of this.....great work.....i'm not sure how the titles of the cds mean anything to the songs, tho. But, it's a great collection.and well-thought-out..thanks.

    I can see why Paul and even Ringo would be in favor of that, but George and Yoko would never have allowed something like that, they would have not have been thrilled with the Beatle brand being used to to market something which is mostly a Paul's greatest hits. It diminishes their legacy and props up Paul's and neither George or John (or their respective estates) were ever in favor of that.

    Beautifully put together mind.

    I actually have done this as well. I had them sitting done for a couple of years and finally did the disc artwork yesterday. Fun to go through and make your own collections. Great job in doing your own

    I certainly would understand their position. But we wanted to stay with the "1" motif that sold so well. We didn't really know how it would shake out until we did the chart research

    At least for me, it's a fun disk to have added to my Beatle's collection

    Much better idea, than the suggestion of solo-together album of #1s only. Which would be too biased towards McCartney & omit way too many SIGNIFICANT solo hits.

    Give Peace A Chance for example, barely made the top 10 on the singles charts, but 50 years later ( 49 ) it's a worldwide classic, sung at events, causes, celebrations, by tens of thousands over & over & over again. Or Instant Karma, It Don't Come Easy & What is Life, classics all beloved & known to this day by millions. The endearing Nobody Told Me, Lennon's posthumous hit from 84 only reached # 6. But is beloved by many really his last solo hit. McCartney too has songs that failed to climb to #1, but we're still big in their own right, Maybe I'm Amazed for example.

    Where I disagree is where you say one double volume of 70-75... For starters it should probably be 1969, & instead of (69)70-75. There should be 2-3 perhaps something like..69-72, 73-75 & 76-80 ( including Lennon's posthumous)

    1. Instant Karma
    2. My Sweet Lord
    3. Maybe I'm Amazed
    4. Come & Get It
    5. It Don't Come Easy
    6. What Is Life
    7. Imagine
