Allmusic.com gave The Beatles 1962-1966 a 4 1/2 star review:

Assembling a compilation of the Beatles is a difficult task, not only because they had an enormous number of hits, but also because singles didn’t tell the full story; many of their album tracks were as important as the singles, if not more so. The double-album 1962-1966, commonly called The Red Album, does the job surprisingly well, hitting most of the group’s major early hits and adding important album tracks like “You’ve Got to Hide Your Love Away,” “Drive My Car,” “Norwegian Wood,” and “In My Life.”

Released in 1973, The Beatles 1967-1970, is a 2 LP compilation album by the Beatles.

The album reached #1 on the U.S. album chart and #2 on the UK chart.

Allmusic.com gave The Beatles 1967-1970 a 4 1/2 star review:

Picking up where 1962-1966 left off, the double-album compilation 1967-1970, commonly called The Blue Album, covers the Beatles’ later records, from Sgt. Pepper’s through Let It Be. Like The Red Album, The Blue Album …contains a mixture of hits, including singles like “Lady Madonna,” “Hey Jude,” and “Revolution” — which had originally appeared only as 45s — plus important album tracks like “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds,” “A Day in the Life,” “While My Guitar Gently Weeps,” and “Come Together,” as well as orphaned tracks such as the single versions of “Let It Be” and “Get Back,” which had never been on any LP before. … As a précis of the group’s final 36 months, it’s all mightily impressive, even if 1967-1970 misses several great songs. But like its predecessor, this set does capture the essence (if not the full range) of the Beatles’ later recordings.
