My son a music fanatic was 8 when he first heard this cd. Now we hear part of it at least once a day.

There is a simple reason why a now 9 year old would rather listen to this cd than any other. It is that in the field of Rock there have been many great music makers. None can compare with the Beatles.

If you judge by the quality of songs and music, no rock cd released in the last 10 years is more worthy of purchase.

Never equaled, never will be.

This album has all of the basic Beatles hits. While it's not as comprehensive as the Red and Blue albums, it's pretty much most of them. The only notable exceptions are that it's missing Strawberry Fields and Back in the USSR.

'Beatles 1' remarkably is the first Beatles' album to be the #1 bestseller of any given year. (While nearly all of their studio albums went to the top of the charts, none of them was the top seller of any given year. 'Hello, Dolly,' I believe beat out 'Meet the Beatles,' in 1964, for instance.) For those who are familiar with the blue and red albums, this collection has many advantages. While it is not as smoothly integrated as the other mentioned collections, it is easier to digest the scope of …

. . .and that is to present, in one album, all the Beatles' #1 hits. Some of these hits are better than others; some of my favorites were never (apparently) #1 hits!It's interesting: only one of the songs presented is a George Harrison original, (the rest being Lennon/McCartney) demonstrating that Harrison's talent was unappreciated in his day, and that he was definitely overshadowed by his band-mates.I also find it interesting that the largest bulk of #1 hits comes from the Beatles' early years, …

About this album


Proving yet again their willingness to dice 'n' slice their burgeoning legacy into new--if not exactly fresh--product, the Fab Four Minus One have released this single-disc compendium of their No. 1 hits. Though obviously superfluous to the faithful (who may also find themselves quibbling over the precise definition of "No. 1 hit" and the exclusion of seeming contenders like "Please Please Me" and "Strawberry Fields"), newly arrived visitors from the Pleiades star cluster and other neophytes will find it a concise and generous (nearly 80 minutes) single-disc introduction to the band's career-spanning, unparalleled dominance of pop music in the 1960s. But beyond being a mere trophy case of commercial success (and it won't be hard to find critics who'll argue that these singles aren't even the band's best work), it's also aCliff's Notestake on a remarkable seven-year run of musical evolution, one that stretches from the neo-skiffle of "Love Me Do" through a remarkable synthesis of R&B, rockabilly, Tin Pan Alley, gospel, country, and classical that still defies efforts to effectively deconstruct it. This is the pop monument equivalent of the '27 Yankees and '90s Bulls; it's every bit as obvious and dominating--and just as essential.--Jerry McCulley
