'Aftermath' (1966)

The Glimmer Twins arrive as genius songwriters, raising the ante on Dylan and the Beatles with their first full album of original tunes.

Key Track: "Paint It Black," a grown-up death drone driven by Jones' sitar.

Friendly Jab: The Beatles considered calling their next LP After Geography as a joking tribute to Aftermath.
