Media Type: CD
Street Release Date: 10/05/1993
The closest the Beatles came to a greatest hits package, this document of the early part of their career features hit singles (in chronological order) and selected album tracks, running from "Love Me Do" through the groundbreaking Rubber Soul and Revolver albums. While this may be an excellent intro for beginners, real fans will never be content with only selections, especially when you're dealing with those aforementioned albums. Capitol packages the collection on two discs, copying the original vinyl version--but, of course, CDs hold more music than records did. Still, you do get 26 bona fide classics, so there's no real need to complain. --Bill Holdship

Beatles 1962 - 1966 has been around for decades and is still a good starter collection of their earlier sound.
This collection would, in a perfect world, be at least a 4 CD set. If you grew up with the "Fab Four" you understand. A mega set with all their albums is desired. This set does, however, provide the desired sounds and is convenient to rifle through their albums of those years.
Back then, we listened to every single cut on those albums and didn't start skipping songs untill the wierd eastern sounding stuff and then the cuts that obviously came from a drug infected mind about 1967 to their end as a group in 1970.
The album photo tells the story. They started out as clean cut guys in suits, rocking the house down with jams like we had never heard the likes of before. They were the vanguard of the "British Invasion" and music has never been the same. We did love them like no others.
Caution! You, as a result of getting this collection "In your life", may require "Meet the Beatles", "The Beatles Second album", "Something New, Something New", "The Early Beatles", "Hard Day's Night" (And get the movie!), Beatles '65", "Beatles VI" (We called it Beatles '66), "The Beatles Yesterday and Today","Help" (And get the movie), "Rubber Soul" and "Revolver". You have been warned.
