If Macca fronting Nirvana wasn’t quite your thing then maybe you’ll like this more. Apple is now offering almost all of The Beatles albums on iTunes at a reduced price of £7.99 each. The offer is apparently for a limited period only, so if you do fancy adding a bit more of the Fabs to your life you’ll need to move pronto. The albums are also around the same price on CD at Amazon and probably a lot cheaper on vinyl at a charity shop near you.
But which one to buy? Beatles fans are split between between the pop art perfection of Revolver and vaudevillian psych of Seargent Pepper as to which is their finest moment ( I go with the Pepper).
Assuming that you already have those two – plus The White Album, Abbey Road a singles collection or two what should come next.
Here then are six of the band’s most under-rated albums. The number one might even contain the best music they ever recorded.

3 Let It Be
Serious Beatles fans tend to favour Abbey Road and The White Album over this - the rather messy split album. The confusion over producers and the acrimony that is a real under current in the film, doesn't help either. But Macca's timeless pair of ballads; The Long And Winding Road and Let It Be and Lennon's Across The Universe are clearly the work of a band still at their peak. Listen too to the sweetly melancholic Two Of Us and the prototype power pop of For You Blue - both lesser heralded gems from the band's back catalogue
