2 stars This out of print LP compilation, the first released from the band in the U.K. in late 1966, was really released by their record label because the band wasn`t going to have a new album recorded and released by late 1966. Since 1963, the band have recorded and released two new albums per year, but by 1966, they didn`t do it. So, this compilation was assembled and released while the band members took some holidays after their last tour in 1966 and before returning to the recording studios in late 1966 to record their Sgt. Pepper`s album.

This is a compilation of songs, with most of them being previously released as singles in the U.K. and with two others simply being taken from some albums (Michelle, Yesterday). This album also included a new song previously unreleased in the U.K. called Bad Boy, which it really wasn`t as new, being recorded in 1965 and also being previously released in an American album by the band titled Beatles VI. So, for British fans who didn`t have listened to this song yet it really was a hook to buy this compilation album.

This compilation has never been released on CD, but, with the exception of Michelle and Bad Boy, all these songs were released in The Beatles`1 CD, and Bad Boy was released on the Past Masters Volume One CD.
