Revolver is my favorite Fab Four album, though there isn't a bad one in the bunch. I agree that's the one to point virgin Beatle listeners too, but at the same time, you really need to experience the early sound to understand the evolution of their sound, style and lyrical content.
I've ordered the Rock Band 'cause I know they'd sell out at the store before I even got in line. Can't wait to try some of the bass lines and drum styles.
My fav Beatle growing up was Lennon but as I got older, I came to appreciate George more and more, to the point of he's equal to Lennon anymore. Not to displace Paul...he was a genius. Actually we were talking about this the other day. It did take all four. No one Beatle was above the group. Even Ringo's distinctive sytle on drum was a key part of the sound. And each of them had a unique personality that brought them the attention they got. Lennon's wry wit offset Paul's too cutesyness. George was the quiet, introspective guy who could write a song as well as the two brash guys and good ole goofy Ringo reminded them that it was all good, let's have fun.
Now if Rock Band will do the Stones from 65-74...
