Background: Released in 1976, Rock ‘n’ Roll Music was a double compilation album containing more rock-oriented tracks by the Beatles.

The album reached #2 on the U.S. album chart and #11 on the UK chart.  The album was the first Beatles LP with worldwide release to contain “I’m Down,” a track originally released as the B-side to the “Help” single.

Allmusic.com gave Rock ‘n’ Roll Music a 3 1/2 star review:

On toward the mid-’70s, it dawned on the powers-that-were at Capitol/EMI that millions of listeners had come of age since the breakup of the Beatles in 1970 and, thus, had never experienced the group except in a historical context….And so the company decided to try a similar repackaging/re-marketing scheme with the Beatles. And the result was Rock & Roll Music, complete with an accompanying single release of “Got to Get You into My Life.” …Even focusing on their originals, the results were impressive, with the first LP appearance of the Paul McCartney-authored Little Richard homage “I’m Down,” originally a single B-side that had also been their concert closer on the 1965 tour; “Anytime at All”; and the delightful late-era “Birthday,” which was an opposite of sorts to the darker “Helter Skelter” from the same original album. … But Rock & Roll Music did work as a marketing concept, the album rising to number two on the U.S. charts (and kept out of the top spot only by — rather fittingly — Wings at the Speed of Sound).
