The REAL 500 Best Albums Of All Time - Part 17 - 19 of 100 (Stones & Beatles)

Just like Rolling Stone, I have a fondness for music from the 1960's, and The Beatles and The Rolling Stones ruled from the mid-60's into the late 60's, so here's seven LPs by The Beatles, and eight albums by The Rolling Stones that I would find essential if I was washed up on a desert island and could only bring 500 records with me!

From 1964, "Meet The Beatles," "Something New," and "Beatles 65!"

 From 1965, "Rubber Soul,"

From 1966, "Revolver,"

From 1967, "Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band,"

And from 1969, "Abbey Road!" Those are my favorite Beatles' albums!

From The Stones, it's "England's Newest Hit makers, The Rolling Stones," 1n 1964,

From 1965, "December's Children (and everybody's)" and "Aftermath,"

From 1967, "Their Satanic Majesties Request,"

From 1968, "Beggar's Banquet,"

From 1971, "Sticky Fingers,"

And from 1972 "Exile On Main Street!" Those fifteen albums have more truly classic stuff on them than almost anything else I can imagine!


  1. I think I'd rather die if I washed up on a desert island and didn't have 500 albums.

    Rubber Soul and Abbey Road are perfect albums. I find Sgt, Pepper overrated, but then I wasn't but 1 year old when it came out.

    Love the Stones, but surprisingly, I'm not really familiar with any of those albums as a whole. Sure, I know most of the songs (I've got like 3 greatest hits of theirs), but I couldn't tell you which songs come off which album, unlike say, Led Zeppelin or The Who, which I can almost always tell you not only which album, but which side.

  2. RH,
    Sgt Pepper isn't overrated, but then it might be one of those you had to be there kind of things, You need to hear EVERY song on the Stone's Satanic Majesties Request, Beggar's Banquet, and Let It Bleed LPs! Trust me!
