1, One More Time

"'The Beatles, their music, their work and their images is as strong as (it's) ever been,' Lindsey-Hogg said. 'You can't beat them. You can't beat the Beatles.'" -From interview with Jacque Wilson Smith, CNN http://www.cnn.com/2015/10/20/entertainment/beatles-restored-music-videos/


It was 1957 when John Lennon and Paul McCartney started playing together, it was 1958 that George Harrison was added to the group, and four years later, Richard Starkey fell into place behind drums to form The Beatles. A little Liverpool group that made it to number one and has held that spot, at least in my opinion, as the number one band of all time, with twelve studio released albums {search and read about each album here}, Four films, Eight time Grammy winners, honored as Members of The British Empire, and much more, including Twenty Seven number one Singles.  It was only appropriate that this number one band with a near three dozen number one singles have their own number one album; Beatles 1. 

Beatles 1 was originally released on 13 November, 2000 featuring every number one single released by these Liverpool Lords in the United Kingdom and United States from 1962- 1970. It was no surprised that within hours of being released this number one album shot to number one on charts across the world. This album not only topped charts across the globe, but became the fourth best-selling album in the United States - best-selling album in the US of the decade {2000-2009}, and making it the number one selling album of the decade worldwide! 

The album includes the following tracks;
  1. Love Me Do
  2. From Me To You
  3. She Loves You
  4. I Want To Hold Your Hand
  5. Can't Buy Me Love
  6. A Hard Days Night
  7. I Feel Fine 
  8. Eight Days A Week
  9. Ticket To Ride
  10. Help!
  11. Yesterday
  12. Day Tripper
  13. We Can Work It Out
  14. Paperback Writer
  15. Yellow Submarine
  16. Eleanor Rigby
  17. Penny Lane
  18. All You Need Is Love
  19. Hello,Goodbye
  20. Lady Madonna
  21. Hey Jude
  22. Get Back
  23. The Ballad of John and Yoko
  24. Something
  25. Come Together 
  26. Let It Be
  27. The Long and Winding Road
The album was remastered and released, with once again an over whelming success, in September 2011. However, it may be Forty-Five years since The Beatles broke up {10 April, 1970} their music is still thriving. With that being said, look out world because on 6 November, 2015 The Beatles 1 is being re-released with twenty-seven digitally enhanced promotional videos for each number one hit! On top of that it will include twenty-three additional videos of the bands television appearances and rare footage. 


Dennis Michael, a longtime Beatlemaniac told CNN News the following;  
"Grainy, bad-sounding versions of The Beatles' early music clips have been bouncing around YouTube for years, but now they're back in their vivid glory."
Michael couldn't be anymore on point. Along with Dennis Micheal, many other fans eaglerily wait for the release of this brillant restored album featuring;
