Totally fab price for these albums - you can pick them up individually for (Red album) £7.28 at Amazon and (Blue album) £8.99 at Amazon/Play/HMV - so a nice saving on both of these. Got these remastered versions already (Xmas present) and all in all - well worth getting - even if you own the original CD releases of these - for the sheer quality of the remastering. This 2 x 2CD album comes in a 6 panel digipack with a 32 page booklet in a rigid o-card.

This superb compilation from 1962-1966, often called The Red Album, brings together the majority of the Beatles' hits from the early to mid 60s. Consequently, it plays like an overview of some of the most popular and indelible rock songs of all time. From the 'yeah, yeah, yeah's of "She Loves You" through the amped-up giddiness of "I Want to Hold Your Hand", the minor-key melodicism of "And I Love Her", and on to the chiming power pop of "Eight Days a Week" and the tweaky feedback of "I Feel Fine", these are the songs that turned the entire Western world on its ear.

The second half of the set--in addition to its phenomenal songs-- is interesting in that it charts the Beatles' move from straightforward pop toward the new chapter of rock the band would help script in the late 60s. After the expansive chords and slinky melodies of "Ticket to Ride", the band becomes alternately darkly introspective ("Yesterday") and looser and more groove-obsessed ("Drive My Car"), while trying on allegorical Dylan-inspired narratives ("Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)"), and happy-go-luck psychedelia ("Yellow Submarine"). These songs are part of our living, breathing cultural identity, and--as this collection reminds us--for good reason.

The companion piece to the 1962-1966 singles compilation, this set (often called The Blue Album, as opposed to its chronological predecessor The Red Album), brings together the Beatles best known songs from 1967 through 1970. The Beatles were fiercely, relentlessly experimental during these years, and the swirling, visionary soundscapes of "Strawberry Fields Forever", which opens the collection, sets the tone with its effects-heavy production and backward tape loops. John Lennon's psychedelic songwriting, which emphasised crystalline melodies and surreal wordplay, can be heard on tracks like "Lucy In the Sky With Diamonds" and "Across the Universe".

Paul McCartney's fascination with English music hall and novelty numbers is clear on "Penny Lane" and "Ob-la-Di, Ob-la-Da", and the set also has some of his finest ballads, including the mega-hits "Let It Be" and "Hey Jude". George Harrison emerged as a fine songwriting talent during these years with "Something" and "Here Comes the Sun". Yet despite evidence of their diverging individual directions, the Beatles still rock as a band on cuts like "Revolution". (The set includes the single versions of "Revolution", "Lady Madonna", and "Hey Jude"). The Beatles set the tenor of the late-'60s with this spectacular soundtrack, and it remains--even afteryears of overplaying--original, beautiful music.

No qualms about the quality of the music, but these albums have always been overpriced. Why should a 40 year plus album (red):
a) be on 2 CDs when it is only about an hour length in total?
b) cost almost as much as a newly released album that has required writing, performing and producing, when this merely has a bit of remastering?

I don't understand why the Beatles didn't just say 20 years ago, "any money we make from albums from now on goes to charity". Its not like they are short of a bob or two. Imagine if every Beatles album had a sticker saying all the money goes to the Red Cross. If Paul Newman can raise $300 million for charity selling salad dressing, imagine what the Beatles could have done.

Doesn't Michael Jackson own the rights to the Beatles music?

I'm not sure that you can own anything when you're dead.

No Jackson's estate doesn't own it, Macca and Yoko bought the rights back.

Got this from Amazon last year for £12.99 when it was included in their Black Friday promotion.

Everybody should have these albums in their CD collection.

Quite right - I remember seeing these for £31.99 EACH in HMV when they came out. Putting them onto two CDs was just an excuse to charge double.

Nice to see there's a deal now.

Who are the Beatles? Never heard of 'em.

I thought MJ sold them to Sony to stop Paul M getting them back?

And, even at this price, I think this is still overpriced. Especially if two of the cds only last about 60 minutes.

Embarrassingly, I asked a sixteen year old girl about them. She replied " I think I've heard of them, they played their own instruments, didn't they?"

I suppose the concept of playing instruments is quite novel for many a 16 year old nowadays unless they prefer non mainstream music. Modern pop isn't really very sophisticated.

What's not to like. Great music. Timeless. Inspirational still.

The Beatles were rather exploited financially in the 60s, so what if they make money now on their creativity.

Wako Jacko really shafted Paul, his mate at the time, on the publishing rights.

These aren't the 2010 remasters - they're basically the old releases repackaged.
Amazon have the remasters @ £8.99 each.

Paul told him the best way to invest his money when MJ asked him!! I find it funny that MJ then used that advice to buy Beatles songbook!

Completely misinformed. Hard rock and metal has never been more popular than it is today. Just do a search on YouTube to see countless young people totally excelling at guitar and drums.

I will never buy this compilation whilst its on 4 CDs and costs more than 10 quid. Even if it was on 2 CDs, they should still add more tracks to get to at least 75 mins per CD. There's plenty of bonus tracks to pick from - "Revolver" (often voted the best Beatles album) is probably the most criminally underepresented here with only 2 tracks.

The current 4 CD collection is just 100% greed from the record company and is quite shameful.

I own the original 2009 remaster box set (2009) - nothing new on these albums for me

Hot none the less

I can't wait for the rest of this lot to pop their clogs and we can start to forget about the terrible noise they produced. Most overrated band ever.

Tempted to order for Mothers Day, although she has probably already got them...

Have some heat! If you only buy one album in your life, this is the one to buy. One of the best upbeat combo's in the world. They wrote their own songs and played their own instruments. Millions of people have bought the Beatles albums. Surely, millions of purchases cannot be wrong.... don't call me Shirley! Buy any Beatles album and you will not be disappointed.

Hard Rock & Metal = non mainstream music
Pop = mainstream music

So not misinformed at all. For every young person listening to Hard Rock and metal, you will find a dozen listening to the same old pop on their local commercial radio station. It's unfortunate but it's the way it is.

I think a lot of people might struggle with the White Album. There's some decidedly dodgy stuff on there.

You jest. Fab album, sometimes quirky, but for sheer variety of musical styles, for me it's one of the best with so much on it. Revolution 9 takes a bit getting used to.


As for the 2 CD packaging, it mirrors the old Red and Blue original LPs, so it sort of makes sense, even if the 62-66 selection can fit on one CD. A very good price nonetheless for all of those songs.
