6 songs from Rubber Soul and only 2 from Revolver has always struck me funny. Taxman and Got To Get You Into My Life are the two glaring omissions from these discs in my opinion. And even though I love Girl and Michelle, I don't really think they need to be included on any greatest hits package.

I really find it hard to pick 1 song out from the other. It does really change from day to day. Yesterday is perhaps my fave at the moment...
You must appreciate the day...

This album was my introduction to the Beatles. but as i look back on it, "1967-1970"(Blue Album) has like 28 songs in all and the songs was longer, whereas "red album" only 26. That aint right, atleast they shouldve had "Taxman" #1) so George can atleast have one song, #2) to give "Revolver more exposure.

This was the first vinyl I ever had (xmas 1976).
In fact I didn't even have a record player at the time and had to play it on my elder brothers deck and he lived about 2 miles away.
There's commitment for you!!

This is an amazing collection of singles. Arguably the greatestest packaging in rock n roll history.

I like it better than 67-70, because it plays like a great singles collection, whereas the Blue Album feels a little more disjointed since their albums during that later period where a bit more concept driven.

This was also my introduction to the Fabs after my brother won the album from the old WRKO - AM in Boston back in 1973.
The CD definitely should have been fleshed out more, which I did when I made a CD copy for my 8 year old son.
RED: add "Do You Want To Know A Secret", "Twist & Shout", "She's A Woman", "I Should Have Known Better", "I'm Down", "Taxman", "Here There & Everywhere", "Good Day Sunshine" & "Got To Get You Into My Life".

BLUE: add "Getting Better", "When I'm 64", "Blackbird", "Birthday", "Golden Slumbers - The End"
