1962–1966 (also known as "The Red Album") is a compilation album by the English rock band the Beatles, spanning the years indicated in the title. Released with its counterpart 1967–1970 ("The Blue Album") in 1973, it reached No. 3 in the United Kingdom and No. 1 in the United States Cash Box album chart. However, in Billboard, 1962–1966 peaked at No. 3, while 1967–1970 reached the top spot. The album was re-released in September 1993 on compact disc, charting at No. 3 in the UK.

The Beatles had never had a career spanning Best-Of or Greatest Hits - in a very real senses all of their LPs were Greatest Hits albums. They had more hit singles that could fit on even a double album, and to complicate things, some of the group's most important songs - "A Day In The Life", The Fool On The Hill", and in England even Yesterday - were not released as singles. The Red and Blue albums had to tell The Beatles' story in limited time, necessarily leaving out many big songs while conveying a sense of the whole history of the group.

What I like about this album 1962-1966 is that it thoroughly chronicles the music of The Beatles for the first half of their musical output. It's not just the singles here, but a couple of songs from each of the records. This is an ideal way to start learning about The Beatles, and indeed many folks have done that when this was first released. For this remastered version of the 1962-1966, it would have been nice if they would have extended the tracklisting with a few more songs, which could include one or two Harrison songs such as Taxman or If I Needed Someone. The songs included are very skimpy with the contributions from 1966, including only three; Paperback Writer was the single from that year, written by Paul McCartney.

The Beatles 1962-1966 and its sister album 1967-1970 were the first Beatles compilations following the group's split in 1970. The tracklisting for both collections was compiled by Allen Klein, and were approved by the former members of The Beatles. No cover versions were included, and all the songs on the Red Album were by Lennon-McCartney. In 1969 McBean was asked to recreate the shoot, with The Beatles in the same position. The resulting photograph was intended for the unreleased Get Back album, which was later reworked by Phil Spector and released as Let It Be. The 1969 photograph was used on the back cover of 1962-1966, and on the front of 1967-1970. The gatefold covers of both albums were adorned with a photograph of The Beatles and fans taken during the 'Mad Day' in London on 28 July 1968.
