3 stars This is good as far as Beatles compilations go (and God knows there are a LOT of them!) As the name suggests, this two disc set highlights some of The Beatles best works from the years of 1967-1970. It gives one a good picture of Beatles songwriting during this period, and is an excellent aid for those looking to get into The Beatles, as this is probably their better, more proggy area, and this album highlights the high points of this.

That being said, it is still a compilation, and those non-essential. Any true fan of The Beatles will want to own the original albums these tunes came from, as there is an enormous selection of excellent Beatles classics that just were quite absent from this album. But if you are someone who just likes the big hits you hear all the time, you can get it all here: "Strawberry Fields Forever", "Hey Jude", "Magical Mystery Tour", and my personal, yet not as big, favorite of The Beatles: "Across the Universe". Not essential, but for a number of reasons it is a good compilation and quite a professionally done Beatles late-era overview.
