iTunes Review

The 1973 collection known to fans as “The Red Album” (released simultaneously with “The Blue Album”) follows the band from their debut up until the release of Revolver. From the Beatlemania that brought them worldwide popularity to the bold experimentation of their mid-period, this is an essential overview of the band’s rapid ascent as musical adventurers.

Customer Reviews

Definitely an album to get

From the boppy, poppy sounds of the early mono recordings like "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" through to the beautiful harmonies of "Nowhere Man" and the almost comedic feel of "Yellow Submarine", this album contains The Beatles at their very best. Simple intelligible lyrics with clean sounding guitars and drums.

What more could one ask for?

This album, along with its partner that covers the latter part of The Beatles' time together, serves as a good introduction to the musical phenomenon that was The Beatles, and should be listened to by anyone who has been living under a rock since the early 1960's.

Or aliens from space who may have never heard of The Beatles.

Because, let's face it, everyone who appreciates The Beatles already has this album in their collection.

I've had my copy since 1988 on CD, and 1973 on vinyl.

The Beatles have been in my iTunes for years.

And now they can be in yours too.

Reply to Adam Sparrow and the best two Beatles compilations

Adam Sparrow, you're right, but most of the songs you have typed are covers, and I don't think will appear on the Beatles greatest hit albums, not even Twist and Shout!
Here are the songs I think need to be added; 'I Saw Her Standing There', 'Do You Want To Know A Secret', 'I'm Looking Through You', 'Here, There & Everywhere', 'Good Day Sunshine' and 'Got To Get You Into My Life'.

Anyway, if you only had two Beatles compilations, I would expect you to have The Red Album & The Blue Album, if studio albums, Sgt. Pepper & Abbey Road, but to really get to know the Beatles, you need ALL of 'em!

Excellent But.....

Well Obviously You Are Getting Many Of The Greatest Songs Ever Written!!! The fact the The Beatles wrote & recorded so many songs of such an incredible calibre in essentially four years is simply & utterly breath taking! An achievement that will & could never be matched again. Overall this is a very good introduction to their early years & personally i would only not include 2 songs. That being said, to truly appreciate the scope, brilliance & mastery of this 62-66 period many other songs are just as essential as the songs here. Twist & Shout, I Saw Her Standing There, It Wont Be Long, Any Time At All, Money, Rock n Roll Music, Long Tall Sally, No Reply, Should Have Known Better, The Word, I'm Looking Thru You, I've Just Seen A Face, She Said, And Your Bird Can Sing, Good Day Sunshine & Got To Get You Into My Life are all just as worthy to be included in a Beatles Best of collection.

So much has been said and written about the Beatles -- and their story is so mythic in its sweep -- that it's difficult to summarize their career without restating clichés that have already been digested by tens of millions of rock fans. To start with the obvious, they were the greatest and most influential act of the rock era, and introduced more innovations into popular music than any other rock band of the 20th century. Moreover, they were among the few artists of any discipline that were simultaneously...
