The Beatles - Vote for your favourite Beatles album
Bill Cummings 16/09/2009
'It was forty years ago today....'
Nearly 40 years after their break-up, one of the most celebrated bands of all time The Beatles have been making the headlines again. I read the news today? And you can't have missed the plethora of programming on the BBC(culminating in a series of fascinating programmes in Beatles week), the new images and footage that has emerged from the era along with the hundreds of column inches decdited to the fab four in the last month.
All of the Beatles albums have been re-mastered and released, in brand spanking new formats and with a production(that some argue consists of just, digitalising the sound and turning up Paul a bit) that shines up the George Martin mixes. The Beatles even feature on the new rockstar game, so that you can live out your fantasies, playing on a digital stage as John, Paul, George and Ringo....
To tie in with this exaustive Fab Four season, nostalgic music website www.thisdayinmusic.com have been running a poll, to find out which is the most popular Beatles album of all time. We caught up with the site's head honcho who told us about the response so far:
With all the current media coverage of the Beatles re-masters album, we thought it a good time to ask our users which Beatles album was their favourite.
The response has been fantastic.
So far over 5 days more than 4,000 people have voted.
We have a list of all 12 Beatles studio albums for users to vote for.
When you think The Beatles released 12 studio albums between 1963 and 1970, of which some are considered now to be classic albums.
We are encouraging you to vote and debate your selections for the Beatles' best long player. Will you choose one of their earlier efforts Please Please Me or with the Beatles, or maybe the era defining Sgt Peppers? The start of their psychedelic experimentalism on Rubber Soul? Or the masterpiece Revolver? Or their double album opus The White album? Their final statement Abbey Road?The choice is yours!
