"Beatles 1967-1970, The" by the Beatles – ****

First released: 1973

This album is sometime referred to as the "Blue Album". This is a good compilation and probably the first exposure most people got to the magic of The Beatles in recent times. At least it was for me. It’s good because it takes a little from everything and since it is from the latter years, everything still sounds fresh and new. I still quibble about a few of the selections. I wouldn’t have picked Across the Universe and probably would have added Birthday or The Inner Light or something. The album was released to CD in 1993.
