After the runaway success of ‘Revolver’ in the Summer – and the debacle of the American and Philippines tours – the Beatles decided that they were entitled to a little break. So George Martin informed EMI that there would be no new product for Christmas. EMI responded by rushing out this greatest hits package instead.

The album’s sole-redeeming feature was that it contained one unreleased song – ‘Bad Boy’. The Americans had already heard this on the ‘Beatles VI’ LP, but it hadn’t been released in Britain yet.

Despite having a brand-new song it was the first Beatles’ album not to make No. 1 – The number one that Christmas was ‘The Sound Of Music’ (again).
