Good time for a thread revival, since I totally forgot about this (misfiled) CD in my original reply

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

I bought all the UK LPs available in the late 70's between aged 17-19 including persuading a local record shop that selling me "Rarities" with the blue box as selling the rest of the albums individually would be more financially beneficial to him, which he agreed. The moved onto filling gaps with A Collection of Beatles Oldies, Hey Jude , The UK and US versions of Live at the Star Club, Hollywood Bowl LP, and the low priced Tony Sheridan stuff and US version of Rarities. Many interview LPs like David Wigg interviews, Hear The Beatles Tell All, a counterfeit of The Christmas Album, and several bootlegs like Watching Rainbows which pre-You Tube were a revelation. Never owned the Red and Blue albums though, and got Rock n Roll but not Love Songs. Since also got most but not quite yet all of the standard stuff on CD and added the Anthology series, Love, Hollywood Bowl, Let It Be ...Naked  

Solo I've got all John's from Live Peace In Toronto as LPs except Rock and Roll which I'm afraid I thought was a cheap contract closer, and Milk And Honey - I hated Double Fantasy , finding it cloying despite buying a couple of days after release, particularly Beautiful Boy - pass the sick bucket...

Paul's output I thought was more patchy so I cherry-picked McCartney, Ram , Red Rose Speedway , Band On The Run , London Town , McCartney II and nothing else. I've only got Ram on CD because its a great album. Wings I found to be a curate's egg I'm afraid, many individual fine tracks but I want to skip several tracks on all the albums. 

George got all from Living In The Material World through to Somewhere in England and am aware that All Things Must Pass is a big gap, but I loathe Phil Spector's production here, some great songs totally ruined in an echo chamber. Recently got Early Takes Vol.1 on CD and stripping the songs down it's chalk and cheese to me, so much fresher, I wish Giles would get the chance to liberate the album.

Ringo got Ringo, Goodnight Vienna and compilation Blast From Your Past on LP, updating with Photograph: The Very Best Of in the last year.
