Overview

Beatles 1 is the first single-disc collection that spans every facet of the Fab Four's career, from Merseybeat mavens to punchy rockers to masters of nuanced pop-craft. The 27 chart-topping hits presented herein leave little doubt about why Beatlemania gripped the world in the '60s, beginning with the band's first stateside hit, "Love Me Do," and carrying on through scream-inducing hits such as "Can't Buy Me Love" and "A Hard Day's Night." As the '60s wore on, Lennon and McCartney grew more interested in expanding their methods of expression, as evidenced by timeless ballads such as "Yesterday" and "Hey Jude" as well as edgier rockers such as "Ballad of John and Yoko" and "Come Together." (To hear the Beatles' artistic apex, you'll still need Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band and The Beatles (White Album), neither of which generated any proper singles and therefore are not represented on Beatles 1.) Longtime Beatles fans won't find anything new here, but anyone looking to spread the gospel according to John, Paul, George, and Ringo couldn't find a more powerful dose of ammo than this.

Two years ago, Capitol/Apple/EMI Records remastered the entire Beatles catalogs including the Beatles Stereo Box Set and the Beatles in Mono. Last year, it was the Beatles 1962-1966 (Red) and the Beatles 1967-1970 (Blue). This year in 2011, they remastered the Beatles 1. When it was first released in 2000, it became the fasting selling album and reach number one in the Billboard top 200 album chart and around the world. It became Billboard top album of 2000. Following the success of 1, several recording artist tried to do the same thing. The king of rock and roll and the definitive king of kings, Elvis Presley, did it with Elvis 30 #1 Hits. Like the Beatles 1, it hit number one in the Billboard top 200 chart and around the world making Elvis Presley the second recording artist to have with his own number one album hit the music charts in different countries. Elvis 30 #1 Hits is also my favorite album too. The Bee Gees, Michael Jackson, and other recording artists tried to do the same thing, but did not make it to number one on the Billboard music chart as well as around the world. After listening to the remastered version of the Beatles 1, it sounded bigger, louder, and better than ever. It is still one of my favorite Beatles albums ever. The Beatles Stereo Box Set is also my favorite Beatles album. Like the title of the album itself, the Beatles 1 is the number one album of all time. Also, the Beatles still remained the most famous and influential musical group of all time. Beatles fans come together both young and old.

No question, the music is 5 stars. They did a great job cleaning up the originals during the remastering and the songs sound wonderful. The more they can make it sound like what George Martin heard when the songs were recorded (and he put on his finishing touches), the better they get. I haven't watched the blu rays yet, but am looking forward to doing so. The missing star is for B&N for selling a CD that does not have the tracks listed in English. I don't know if they are in Chinese, Japanese or Korean but it is not what you expect when you buy from B&N. I'd expect that from a marketplace reseller who may have bought it in Asia. I hope that when I save the tracks to iTunes and edit all info to English, that it will save and display on my iPod in English. For $50, I should not have to mess around doing stuff like that. Unfortunately, they are out of stock so I can't return it for a replacement. Come on B&N, don't sell stuff that makes you look like an Ebay marketplace seller with "faux" merchandise. And for anyone who may be confused - the title is "1". Songs that reached #1 are included on the disc. Songs that didn't, aren't. So quit whining about Strawberry Fields not being on the CD, Mr. Music Critic. Nothing from Sgt. Pepper is on it either. That's how an album entitled "1" works. Maybe do your research before you write your next overview.

Just when you thought that the LP vinyls is ancient history, well guess again, it's back and bigger than ever. Twenty years after the LP vinyls went out of stock, it's making a huge comeback. To the young people who never saw a LP vinyls before will need to take a look and get used to buying this record or any other of your favorites. 1 is the first Beatles LP that I bought in a long time. Even though I still have the Beatles 1 on CD, I will keep it too. 1 is my favorite Beatles album. Hopefully, the 45 RPM record will also make a comeback too. I missed those collection. At least, the LP is back, bigger, better, sharper, and remastered in excellent form.
