10 Albums That Influenced My Music Taste: Day 2. This Beatles compilation has to be the album that not only made me a Beatlemanic but also turned me into a music fan. The first album I bought with me own money was another Beatles compilation which came out in 1976- Rock ‘N’ Roll Music. I liked that one but it fell short- but I did like it well enough to get The Beatles 1962-1966- on first listen I was hooked and had to go out within a week and buy the second part of that compilation the Blue Album 1967-70. After that there was no turning back. Hearing The Beatles songs for the first time was an unforgettable experience. I am envious of anyone just discovering The Beatles and hearing their music for the first time.

  1. That was a big one in my development and the same order as you…Rock and Roll music and then this one…except I got Hey Jude (Greatest Hits) first…just for Paperback Writer.

  2. The red and blue compilation albums were among the very first Beatles albums I ever heard and taped on music cassette. I also had a compilation on vinyl, which I think was called “20 Golden Hits”. Then started getting their actual studio albums on vinyl and eventually a box-set. Music has never been the same for me ever since!

    • I think if someone came up and asked me where to start as far as The Beatles go- if they were not familiar with the band- I’d suggest the Red and Blue as being the best albums to start with. If that doesn’t hook you- nothing will. Blue vinyl..cool!
