Format: Audio CD
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!

Commonly known as the "Red Album" - the 2LP vinyl set "1962 - 1966" became an instant classic when it was first released in April 1973 - as did its "Blue" counterpart "1967-1970". When they were finally reissued onto the new CD format in 1993 however - they caused consternation because of their extortionate full price.

So is this newly Reissued October 2010 mid-priced 2CD reissue on EMI/Apple 5099990675225 any better (featuring the 2009 Remasters)? The answer is an emphatic 'yes'. Here are the nitty gritty details…

Disc 1 of "1962-1966" (31:02 minutes):
1. Please Please Me
2. She Loves You
3. All My Loving
4. Love Me Do
5. From Me To You
6. I Want To Hold Your Hand
7. Can’t Buy Me Love
8. A Hard Day’s Night [Side 2]
9. Eight Days A Week
10. Ticket To Ride
11. And I Love Her
12. I Feel Fine
13. Yesterday

Disc 2 of "1962-1966" (31:45 minutes):
1. You’ve Got To Hide Your Love Away [Side 3]
2. Day Tripper
3. Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)
4. Help!
5. We Can Work It Out
6. Drive My Car
7. Nowhere Man [Side 4]
8. In My Life
9. Paperback Writer
10. Yellow Submarine
11. Michelle
12. Girl
13. Eleanor Rigby

PACKAGING:
The first thing you notice is that the clunky double jewel-case of the 1993 reissue has been dumped for a three-way foldout card sleeve. The centre and right flaps picture the photograph on the inner gatefold of the original vinyl double album (St. Pancras Old Church in London, 27 July 1969, The Beatles with the public looking through the railings).

There is no better album to buy as the definitive starting place to journey into the music of the Beatles. All compositions on this CD are by the band and the freshness of the original vinyl version has for most part been kept that other more recent 'digitally remastered' compilations have lost. To select any one song among the plethora of classics is somewhat pointless so enjoy the early years of the Beatles and don't forget to buy the Blue 1967-70 CD at the same time. The change in the bands style clearly transposes from one CD to the other.

This CD, along with its' companion (The Beatles 1967-1970), represent the only currently available "Best Of" Beatles anthologies available on CD and were originally released as two double LP sets back in the early 1970s. Most commonly referred to as the Red and Blue albums (the scheme supposedly requested by the ex-Beatles themselves to represent the colours of Liverpool's two soccer clubs), these double albums collect together all the Beatles UK hits, along with selected album tracks. I am not a huge fan of compilation CDs myself but these two double CDs are vital for any serious music fan and are as valid a part of any decent CD collection as the Beatles' original studio albums. Like many second generation Beatles fans, I grew up listening to these albums and these compilations really capture the essence of the Beatles' music although they are by no means totally representative. EMI has come in for a lot of criticism for making this CD a double disc set (when it will fit on one CD) but I have to say I think they were right to replicate the original vinyl releases. All the hits of the early Beatles career are here - from 1962 debut single Love Me Do through to the double A-sided Eleanor Rigby/Yellow Submarine single from 1966. The big criticism I do have of this set is the absence of albums tracks from Revolver - whoever made the track selection really should be severely punished for this! Given that this album is considerably shorter in running time than the accompanying Blue Album (and there are less songs on this compilation), extra tracks could have easily been included.Read more ›
