'Magical Mystery Tour' (1967)

The movie was a flop, a swirl of utopian whimsy without much direction. But the soundtrack is unimpeachable, full of historic singles ("Strawberry Fields," "Penny Lane," "Hello Goodbye") and psychedelic nuggets (the title track, which rocks harder than you remember). The U.K. version was a double EP, but Capitol Records, the Beatles' American label, tacked on some previously released singles for the now-familiar LP version.
