1967-1970 by The Beatles

1967–1970 (widely known as “The Blue Album“) is a compilation of songs by the English rock band The Beatles, spanning the years indicated in the title. It was released with 1962–1966 (“The Red Album”), in 1973 on the Apple Records label.  I own two versions of this album, the version on regular black vinyl and the collector’s edition on blue vinyl.  As with 1962–1966, this compilation was produced by Apple/EMI at least partially in response to a bootleg collection titled Alpha Omega, which had been sold on television the previous year. Print advertising for the two records made a point of declaring them “the only authorized collection of The Beatles”. This two album set includes such tracks as Penny Lane, Strawberry Fields Forever, All You Need Is Love, Hey Jude, Revolution, Get Back, Let It Be and much more. This album was well recorded, compiled and produced. I recommend adding this collection and the red collection to your Beatles library.
