"The story began in Harold Macmillan’s “never had it so good” ’50s Britain. It should be fiction: four teenagers with no more than eight O’Levels between them, running and biking and busing and busking all over Liverpool in search of new chords and old guitars and half-decent drum kit and any gig at all.

They were determined to amount to something ... Read more in Amazon's The Beatles Store

5.0 out of 5 stars The Beatles: #1 then, now, and forever 28 July 2004
Format:Audio CD
Beatles fans take their love for the Fab Four very seriously, as evidenced by some of the disappointment espoused by some enthusiastic fans over this compilation. I think we can all agree that this is not the ultimate Beatles CD, but - my gosh - you get 27 of the band's most familiar songs crammed on to one single CD. Even if you have all of the essential Beatles CDs already, it's nice to have such a great one-CD collection. I would much rather take this little jewel case out to my car than to try and put together a single disc of my own, and this has better sound than any disc I could make myself on my computer. I'm a big fan but not an expert on the Beatles, so I can't comment on the issue of stereo mastering versus the original mono versions of the earliest hits - to my ears, all of these songs sound great on this CD. I also won't quibble over what tracks got excluded. This is a collection of #1 hits, not a greatest hits collection. These are the songs that hit #1 on the charts of either the UK (Record Retailer) and/or the US (Billboard). Apparently, even such a seemingly straightforward approach to choosing the tracks allows room for debate - it apparently comes down to what your definition of "#1 hit" should really be. In the end, the fact that the three surviving Beatles (now, sadly, only two) authorized this compilation is more than enough for me to accept it with open arms (and ears).
It's easy to get lost in the enjoyment of such stellar individual songs, but when you take a step back you realize that this CD affords you some interesting insight into the evolution of the band over the course of eight years. The early songs, while fantastic, are actually not that musically complicated.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best of the Fabs? 22 Oct 2000
Format:Audio CD
All the Beatles No.1s from Love Me Do to The Long & Winding Road. You can't grumble about the quality of the songs or value for money - a single CD (and 79+ mins) with more tracks than the double Red album (1962-66).I just wonder what the motivation is behind this release. Maybe it's simply to provide a single disc career overview of the greatest pop band in history to those who don't want to invest in 2 double CDs. There will no doubt be those that will complain that no Beatles hits package is complete without Strawberry Fields Forever. But this is a compilation of all of the Beatles' US and UK No.1 hits and unfortunately that song "only" reached No.2 in the UK. The Billboard Hot 100 in the US is compiled from a combination of sales and airplay, and though Penny Lane (the double A flip-side) reached No.1, Strawberry Fields only got enough radio play to reach No.8. I suppose they could have used a different criterion to select their greatest hits, but with so many hits to choose from they couldn't help but exclude some favourites (Please Please Me, Twist & Shout, In My Life, and there is not a single song from from Sgt. Peppers). Still, this is the first time that such classics as She Loves You, Yesterday, Help!, Hey Jude, Get Back and Let It Be have all appeared on the same album. So if you don't own a Beatles album, this is the place to start, and it makes a great gift for anyone who hasn't updated their scratched vinyl records.

3.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars for the contents, really! 20 July 2006
By Yovra
Format:Audio CD
This is the first Beatle-compilation for the CD-generation. LP-buying Beatle-fans had already bought the Blue and Red double-cd's..

The big advantage of the "Red" and "Blue" were that they were quite creative in compiling album-tracks and making the public (I believed it!)think that tracks like With a Little Help from My Friends or A Day in the Life were actually hit-singles, while they were actually album-tracks!

Sound-wise it's a beefy remastering-job EMI did here; especially the post '68-tracks suffer from the harsh, bassy sound.

If you want to know the Beatles, the Red & Blue are still better places to start (AND the Blue one actually opens with the indispensable Strawberry Fields Forever), if you want the hits, this is a nice one.

5.0 out of 5 stars a work of genius... 11 Oct 2005
well i would never have dreamed when i first heard the beatles in 1962 at the tender age of 9 that i would still be listening to them today, and they sound just as fresh and exciting to me as they did then! in those days everything was literally "flavour of the month". i'm pleased the younger generations of music fans appreciate these simple works of genius still too. i don't know anyone who doesn't like beatles music, proving good things cut across all barriers. i expect they'll still be playing beatles music in 500 years time! this album is a great clean collection of songs guaranteed to hook the uninitiated into a lifetime appreciation of beatles music. i must have heard these a thousand times and still find them refreshing. definitely a must have.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good first album if you're a new fan 11 Aug 2005
Format:Audio CD
I especially recommend this if you're new to The Beatles - every song is a classic. And there is plenty there to get you interested in the band.
It is great to hear their progression from the 'She Loves You' era to 'Hey Jude'. It only took five years - but you could be forgiven for thinking it is a completely different band! The styles range from the catchy pop of 'From Me To You', to the hard rock of 'Revolution' and the gospel sounds of 'Let It Be'.
I just can't wait for '2'!
