Having only been born in 1968, it was this album in my parents' household that introduced me to the Beatles in the seventies. I came face-to-face with it again when my girlfriend (now wife) moved in and our CD collections merged.
Enough about me.
For the record, this is a fine collection of their excellent work from 1962 to 1966. You've probably looked at the track listing and know every song.
Of course this, and any, Beatles album merits five stars. You may prefer the later ones to the earlier ones, or vice-versa, but every one is excellent.
...which is exactly why you should not buy a compilation like this!
Most bands' careers do not stretch far enough to be worthy of a "Greatest Hits" album. The Beatles, on the other hand, hit the target with every single one of their original releases. If you're thinking of buying this album, then maybe you're a bit younger and exploring the fab four for the first time. My advice to you: dig deep into your pocket, go the extra mile and build up your collection with the original albums instead. You won't regret it!
