4 stars In comparison to the "1967-1970" compilation, this album is more a colecction of Hit Singles, but it also includes some very good songs from their albums recorded in that period of years. I think that it was easier to compile, because in those years the band concentrated more in recording short good songs more proper for Radio playing. But by late 1965, with the release of their "Rubber Soul" album, things started to change, and their music became more elaborated and much better in lyrics and in music. By the time they released their "Revolver" album, in 1966, it was clear that the band could not play on stage many of their songs from their "Rubber Soul" and "Revolver" albums, so in their last tour, in 1966, they played mostly songs from their previous years.

The only thing that I really don`t like very much in this compilation is the absence of more songs taken from "Revolver". This compilation only includes "Eleanor Rigby" and "Yellow Submarine" which were released in a single. I think that there were other songs from that album which were better than these.

In terms about musical influences for Prog Rock, I think that the "1967-1970 " compilation is more important. But this "1962-1966" compilation is good anyway, because The Beatles were a very good band from the beginning, so this compilation is very representative of their more Pop Rock songs.

Both compilations (this and the "1967-1970" album) were remastered and re-issued in 1993, being then the first time they were available in the CD format.

1 stars These are just a bunch of highly commercial pop songs, simple and a collection of songs that caused my everlasting dislike for this band. And the funny thing is: when you say this to Beatlefans they always try to convince you of the fact that you are wrong. How can anyone dislike the Beatles ? I don't know, but I do, I'm sorry for those fans. Popmusic couldn't be more simple than most of the songs on this collection and I never understood why people went crazy for this. Of course it's always possible to say something positive about a certain kind of music. In this case it could be that they are popular tunes, true classics if you like but that's something else than good music let alone good prog. And of course also here rules the famous statement: a matter of taste and there's nothing to be done about that I learned.

In my childhood our family had two double vinyls of The Beatles and those were this red one and (of course) the blue one. And those will be the only ones I will review. I don't want to waste too much of my precious time on this band and will leave it at that. Lucky Beatles !

2 stars 2.5 stars really!!

This is simply a collection of early Beatles hit singles, nothing more nothing less. The Blue Album is less of a compilation of hits like this is, and it is a compilation their good songs, but this is solely just The Beatles hits early on. There's not much explaining to do. Everyone knows PLEASE PLEASE ME and LOVE ME DO from just the way pop culture spreads. But that's all this is. The second disc is much better better than the first because it includes some psychedelic and rock songs, but disc one is simply their early rock and roll songs.

If you don't know much about The Beatles and hate prog, start here. For any prog fan, this is decent rock music, that is better to be left skipped anyway. If you like prog, start with The Blue Album as a compilation, but not this.

4/5 for a rock and roll compilation. 2/5 for a proto-prog compilation.

Final Score: 2.5/5

3 stars Beatlemania years

I've never been a fan of compilations and still feel they are not for real music fans, and thus I can keep this brief. Getting the full length studio albums is always preferable so one can enjoy the songs in context. But if one insists on buying a Beatles compilation, this was the best one (along with the companion "Blue" album). Here you'll find the "hits" selected from the early years of the debut through Revolver. They do a good job with their selections. As someone who has taken the lonely position that Rubber Soul was better than Revolver, it is somewhat vindicating to see they include six tracks from Rubber Soul and two from Revolver. If you wish to have a simple overview of The Beatles just to round out your collection, without spending large coin on all the albums, buying Red and Blue will get you there.

4 stars I remember being in my early teens and asking my parents for this collection for Christmas. Naturally, being the great parents that they are, they always encouraged my music development and so one year towards the end of the '90s santa brought me quite an excellent gift!

The red boxed 1962-1966-compilation album consists of all the most popular songs from the Beatles early discography leading up to Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (or the Strawberry Fields Forever/Penny Lane single, if you want to be more precise). Since I have never owned a single album by the group prior to the 1965 release Help it was interesting to explore this side of the band's style even though I've probably still managed to hear most of these songs prior to that point. This actually begs the question --- is it even possible to live a life without even unconsciously hearing a song by the Beatles? Of course one can stretch this argument to the most secluded sections of the Amazon Rainforest or even going out in space, even though I'm pretty sure the Beatles have that latter part covered!

Creating this type of a compilation is indeed a difficult task due to the vast amount of excellent material featured from different eras in the band's short but highly influential career. It was quite a bold decision on the part of the creators of this compilation to merely split the the Beatles' career into two section, each covered by one 2-LP/CD compilation album, which in itself could be a subject to criticism. I honestly think that a compilation trilogy, just like the Anthology albums, would have worked a lot better since the 1965-1966 part of the band's career was an interesting transition stage that could easily fill out the required space of 2-LP/CD compilation on its own! Plus, there are quite a few important early titles that are missing from this collection. Twist And Shout, It Won't Be Long, If I Fell, I Should Have Known Better, I'll Follow The Sun, and No Reply, just to name a few.

The 1962-1966-compilation tried to achieve the task of covering the band's early years over the course of just over an hour worth of music, which in itself sounds like an impossible mission! Still, due to the fact that a consistent chronological order was maintained and that most of the important titles from all of the early albums were picked, although the latter part is debatable, I definitely admire the ambition of this early post-the Beatles compilation. If anything it shows a band in development, which in itself is well worth the price of admission!

***** star songs: All My Loving (2:09) Yesterday (2:05) Help! (2:20) Michelle (2:42) Girl (2:31) Eleanor Rigby (2:08) Yellow Submarine (2:37)

3 stars This is the red album, not as good as the blue album that spanned the more proggy phase of The Beatles. This early phase of The Beatles is full of chart busting pop songs, and wholesome, unimpeachable love songs at that. It builds to some better material from Day Tripper onward. Best songs here are Norwegian Wood (THIS BIRD HAS FLOWN), Nowhere Man, Girl, Paperback Writer and Eleanor Rigby. The pop songs are ok especially 8 Days A Week and A Hard Day's Night. Overall when these albums arrived on vinyl in the 70s Beatles fans were salivating at the new interest in the group. It was kind of a sign that The Beatles were no more, but this compilation captures the innocence of the 60s though has dated incredibly fast. I guess these two compilations could replace the studio albums for those with a passing interest to the group, but to be honest there are far too many compilations these days on The Beatles.

4 stars This is a compilation album which has polarised opinions in PA, I can see. In my view, all homes should have both this compilation CD and in particular the blue 1967-1970 box. Why ?
