Bobby Whitlock on All Things Must Pass.
I might add that years after the fact I discovered that a few of my favorite Harrison solos were actually played by McCartney--most notably Taxman and Drive My Car.  Must be nice to have so much guitar talent in one band.  John's few solos aren't ...

bdp24 I agree about George's solos--short, sweet, to the point and so well-crafted.  None better at what he did.

As with Let it Be, the un-Spectored tracks of John Lennon Rock and Rolll sound fresh and strong (they can be heard on the 4-disc Lennon Anthology set).  Apparently the sessions were one long drunken party but there's some good stuff in there IMO. ...

I, too, find the first Lennon solo studio LP self-indulgent but I still like some of the songs.  "Remember" and "Working Class Hero" are two examples.I have the Giles M. version of SPLHCB but not Abbey Road.  I like it, but I'm long since oversatu... 
What Is The Most Romantic Song That You Have Ever Listen To?
"Marie," Randy Newman.  Achingly beautiful, a man sings his lover's praises while laying bare his soul with nothing held back.

Recommendation for a replacement speaker cable
Canare star quad.  I've tried two different Kimber models for possible upgrade.  Could not stand the sound of it. 
I love sad music

The value of a good FM tuner?......, now and in the future...
I prefer listening to my tuner to streaming the same program.  It has more body.  On the other hand, while it's great for classical the commercial rock stations sound like garbage (same stations are listenable in the car) 
1st Album you Ever Owned?
The Beach Boys' "All Summer Long," in mono.  I got in in stereo a year or two later.  Some great tracks on this one.  I was probably 12.  Some filler tracks as well, but it mostly holds up for me today.  I think this might have been their last ste... 
l just discovered another one of the record companies dirty tricks?
Just pretend you’re actually on stage with the band--then everything is right, and, wow, what a rush to be on stage with Led Zep!I’ve experienced this same thing with classical piano recordings. It seems sometimes the butt end of the piano is faci... 
Bob Dylan - new album just out on Tidal - Rough and Rowdy Ways
Wanna hear the Band show how well they can play rock and roll? Check out Moondog Matinee, their album of cover songs, especially The Promised Land, Ain’t Got No Home and Mystery Train.   I can’t sit still when I hear those tracks. 
CD/DVD/Blu-Ray Players with RCA outputs
I love the sound of my OPPO 83SE.  I wish it displayed the same track info as a CD player,  but I can sacrifice that for the sound I get versus what I paid for it (used, 100 USD).   
What was your most disappointing album purchase?
Exile on Main Street. A few good tracks as opposed to earlier Stones albums. I think Sticky Fingers was the last great Stones album and that Exile set the new low bar for their ensuing LP's (not that they didn’t still produce the occasional great ...
