Pressed in Europe by Optimal Media

Created from the 2009 remasters (recompiled in 2011 for the CD reissue)

Originally released in the year 2,000, Beatles 1 includes 27 of The Beatles' greatest hits including "Hey Jude", "Come Together", "Let It Be", "She Loves You", and so much more! The album includes every number one single released in the United Kingdom and the United States from 1962 to 1970 by the Beatles. 27 tracks.

"...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 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 a Cliff's Notes take 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." —
