3 stars If you are in the mood for some Beatles you might want to look elsewhere as there are better compilations available, but this is Ok for a slice of The Beatles greatness. The usual standards are found here such as Love Me Do, From Me To You, She Loves You and I Want To Hold Your Hand. For me I prefer the later tracks where The Beatles became more innovative but I can still listen without skipping to A Hard Day's Night, I Feel Fine and Ticket To Ride.

Side 2 is superior though with brilliant Beatles such as Paperback Writer, such a great track well sung by Paul, and an awesome guitar riff. I always love to hear Eleanor Rigby and All You Need Is Love, with their more complex structures and studio trickery. Get Back is another highlight and it ends with The Ballad Of John And Yoko.

Overall not too bad as a small detour from other bands you might be into, but The Beatles have so much more to offer and this is only the tip of the iceberg.
