Beatles' 'Revolver' voted best British album
The Beatles' Revolver album has been voted the best British album in a poll of music writers. The 1966 album, with the classic tracks "For No One", "Here, There and Everywhere", "Eleanor Rigby" and "Good Day Sunshine" tops the list of 100 LPs and is one of six entries for the Fab Four, beating A Hard Day's Night (number five), The White Album (seven), Sgt Pepper's (13), Abbey Road (17) and Rubber Soul (21).
Behind the Beatles tally is David Bowie, with four entries, followed by the Rolling Stones, who have three.
As former Beatles, John Lennon features with the Plastic Ono Band album at number 62, while Sir Paul McCartney's group Wings make number 75 with Band On The Run.
Paul Weller has two entries - All Mod Cons, with the Jam (50) and Wild Wood (77) - recognising his work as a band member and as a solo artist.
Radiohead's acclaimed 1997 album OK Computer appears at number two and is judged to be the best album of the past decade in a list dominated by the Nineties. The chart, in the latest Q magazine, is restricted to performers or bands predominantly from the UK.
