I'm going with...
Side One - Chicago Transit Authority
The album wastes no time, getting into a groove with the wonderful "Introduction". It gives way to the radio staples, "Does Anybody Know What Time It Is?" and the smooth "Beginnings". Just three songs but it's arguably the greatest DEBUT album side for a pop group.
Side Three - Physical Graffiti - Led Zeppelin
There is a sunny experimentation to this side with the dawning drone of "In The Light", the peaceful "Bron-yr-aur", and the shimmering warmth of "Down By The Seaside". And yet the best track is saved for last - the delicate melancholy "Ten Years Gone".
Side Four - The Beatles (1968)
What a magical array of musical potpourri! This side has always been my favorite off the Beatles White Album. Whether it's the vaudeville-style humor of "Honey Pie", to the horn-laced rock of George's delicious "Savoy Truffle" to the utterly elegant sweetness of "Good Night", this album side touches on a little bit of everything that made the Beatles great. Even "Revolution 9", while not my favorite, somehow works in the context of this most varied album.
Which 3 sides stand out for you when it comes to (studio) double albums?
