Red and Blue Albums

The Beatles released 1962-1966 and 1967-1970 – better known as the “Red” and “Blue” greatest hits albums, respectively – in 1973. The compilations were assembled by Beatles’ manager Allen Klein, with approval from the band themselves, to compete with the unofficial bootleg compilation called Alpha Omega that was being sold on TV. The albums have recently been remastered and re-released on CD.

Welcome to the Beatles Facts Blog

This blog is a spin-off of my other blog, which is The Music Facts Blog. I continuously found myself wanting to post about The Beatles, so I decided to shift my attention to what I know (and love) most – The Fab Four! On this blog you will find all kinds of interesting facts, trivia, information and tidbits about the band, their music, albums, lives and solo careers. Feel free to leave a comment or drop me a line!

First post coming soon!
