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. This was the first compilation LP issued in 1973 A new double album of the Beatles best work, and the first new Beatles album in three years, even if I already had the songs.

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. The band had progressed with each and every album they released, although it may not seem so apparent to some as 1967-1970 easily illustrates . During this period (1962-1966) there were songs written by guitarist George Harrison as well as the force behind the huge selling singles (Lennon & McCartney) but you wouldn't know this from this compilation. Harrison had written a handful of some pretty good tracks in this era, yet none were included maybe due to the limitations of space back in 1973 when this was first released
