Between 1963 and 1970, these were the 12 UK studio albums released by The Beatles: Please Please Me, With the Beatles, A Hard Day’s Night, Beatles for Sale, Help!, Rubber Soul, Revolver, Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, The White Album, Yellow Submarine, Abbey Road and Let It Be. At various different points in their lives, the Fab Four revealed their individual personal favorites out of the dozen. And this is what John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr said.
Ringo Starr – Abbey Road (1969)
Probably the Beatles’ album with the most famous cover art, Abbey Road was the band’s penultimate album. The drummer was particularly fond of the much maligned Abbey Road Medley.
Ringo told Rock Cellar Magazine a couple of years ago: “For me, that would be the second side of Abbey Road. That’s my favorite because I love all those bits that weren’t full songs that John and Paul had been working on and put together: Mean Mr Mustard, Polythene Pam and She Came in Through the Bathroom Window.
George Harrison – Rubber Soul (1965)
The quiet Beatle preferred Rubber Soul from Beatles albums, according to the book This Bird Has Flyn: The Enuring Beauty of Rubber Soul, Fifty Years On.
During the 1990s, George said: “Rubber Soul was my favorite album, even at the time. I think it was the best we did; we certainly knew we were making a good album. We spent a little more time on it and tried new things. But the most important thing was that we suddenly heard sounds that we couldn’t hear before. Also, we were more influenced by other people’s music and everything was flourishing at that time; including us, because we were still growing.”

John Lennon – The White Album (1968)
Lennon made the revelation in a 1971 interview about The Beatles’ breakup a year earlier, but his quotes didn’t see the light of day until they appeared in a 1984 Penthouse issue, four years after his murder.
The late Beatle claimed that Paul disliked The White Album because he “wanted it to be more of a group thing, which really means more Paul. So he never liked that album.”
But Lennon admitted it was his favorite of the 12, adding: “I always preferred it to all the other albums, including Pepper, because I thought the music was better. The Pepper myth is bigger, but I think the music on the White Album is far superior.”
