The preceding albums were the countdown. Now we are BLASTING OFF!!!

Quote
Rubber Soul is an album by the Beatles, their sixth UK album, and the tenth released in America. Released on 3 December 1965, it met with a highly favourable critical response and topped record charts in the United Kingdom for several weeks, as well as in the United States, where it was issued with a different selection of tracks.

Produced by George Martin, Rubber Soul incorporates a mix of 1960s pop, soul, and folk music styles. The album's name comes from the term plastic soul, which popular African American soul musicians coined to describe Mick Jagger, a white musician singing soul music. It was the second Beatles album – after the British version of A Hard Day's Night – to contain only original material, and was recorded in just over four weeks to make the Christmas market. Unlike the five albums that preceded it, Rubber Soul was recorded during a continuous period, whereas the group had previously made their albums during breaks between tour dates and other commitments. The project marked the first time that the Beatles focused on creating an album as an artistic work, an approach that they then developed with Revolver (1966) and Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (1967).

The album has been included in numerous "best of" album lists compiled by various publications, and is regarded by musicologists as a major artistic achievement that continued the group's artistic maturation while attaining widespread critical and commercial success. In 2012, Rubber Soul was ranked number five on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the "500 Greatest Albums of All Time". In 2013, after the British Phonographic Industry changed their sales award rules, the album was declared as having gone platinum.

I'm happy that these are the final 5 songs (though I'm not particularly happy with the order the other ones left).

And I'm happy that my favorite "not a major classic" track made it this far. But it's time now for it to go.

After we get through to the end of "Let It Be", are we doing the "Past Masters" set?

If we do, then I sorta hope it's split between Volume One and Volume Two, given just how different The Beatles were on each volume

At this point it's either Drive My Car or You Won't See Me. I'll go with You Won't See Me. Hate to vote for any of these songs at this point.

I may slit them up and do them after major sections. ie. Past Masters Vol1 after Revolver and Vol 2 after Let it Be.

Interesting idea. To be honest, I've always kind of looked at them as actual "Beatles albums" in a way.

In fact, volume one has so many tracks on it I was thinking of splitting into two and running them concurrently.
