1.0 out of 5 stars RIPOFF!, July 1, 2008
This review is from: Best of the Beatles (Audio CD)
Okay, I'll make this short. Really short. These 14 songs are all Beatles masterpieces. I'm not denying that. But this isn't even The Beatles. This is something like 101 Strings. Yeah. It's not The Beatles. Buy '1' or perhaps any of the Anthologies, or might I recommend '1962-1966' or '1967-1970.' All are great buys for the Beatles fan. Or, if you can find it, dig up the rarities album 'Hey Jude.' But DO NOT buy this.

NOT RECOMMENDED.

I'm sure. But nowhere in the packaging does it say this. It calls it 'Best of The Beatles.' Misleading packaging considering this is NOT The Beatles -- it's 101 Strings.

How about on the CD cover where it says "Performed by 101 Strings Orchestra"? Or if you're referring to the Amazon product listing instead, 101 Strings Orchestra is listed at the artist. It really couldn't be clearer.

This sort of thing started happening in 1964 only a few months after The Beatles performed on Ed Sullivan show.
What Johnny is saying is simple as look at at the font of: "The Beatles" and then deep in the bottom red area there in tiny print is the "101 Strings" Where are the hits of: "101 Strings?" Where is "Candy from my mother-in-law" or that crowd pleaser "Trees sway gently in the breeze" ??? When this orchestra is rockin' squirrels take notice!

All money generated from my comment goes directly to the Michael Jackson estate as they license this kinda nonsense!

In small letters. It's very deceptive packaging.

Johnny ~

Back in 1964 they produced bogus Beatles records by bands like The Beets and the Yeah, Yeah Yeah's that had some Beatles songs mixed in with beat music by Gerry & The Pacemakers or Herman's Hermits and passed it off as official Beatles music. Many kids got tricked by this sorta rippoff and lost a bit of money on knock-off product. And, I don't believe any Beatle fan out there really wants a 101 Strings disc in their music collection!
