Yeah, they don't call him the "Fifth Beatle" for nothing.

I believe the only solo album either of them did with Martin was McCartney's Tug Of War.
I'm pretty sure you're right on Tug Of War but could be wrong. Lennon's solo stuff has grown on me in the last decade or two. Always liked it, but appreciate it more now. It was just so frustrating that Yoko f'd everything up.
