4 stars Volume 1 is undispensable.

For a Beatles fan like myself, this is a must. Living without it would be insanity, since so much material is related to my favorite period: from Revolver to Magical Mystery Tour.

The Beatles cohesion was still touchable, not too much dissonance was on the horizon. George still wanted to be 'fab', Ringo was himself has it's best, Paul and John were still tolerating and sometimes admirating themselves quietly.

To have Real Love as the 'new' Beatles song only proves this record right: this is to get and keep for a long time. Real Love is far superior as Free as a Bird in melody and honesty. Real Love already existing in John's repertoire, it is only better with George slide guitar and Ringo's laconic drumming. Plus you have 'Yes it is' and 'If You want trouble' performed by Ringo, a great song that could've been on Help if fate hasn't got into it.

Get this to complete your Beatles collection in a significant way. Bonus songs, great humor and total LSD attitude, this is the most complete anthology of the 3.

Vlolume 2 is fine, but redundant.
