Released with its counterpart 1967–1970 (“The Blue Album”) in 1973, it reached No. 3 in the United Kingdom and No. 1 in the United States Cash Box album chart. However, in Billboard, 1962–1966 peaked at No. 3, while 1967–1970 reached the top spot. The album was re-released in September 1993 on compact disc, charting at No. 3 in the UK.
The album was compiled by Beatles manager Allen Klein. Even though the group had had success with cover versions of songs, most notably with “Twist and Shout”, which made number 2 on the Billboard charts, only songs composed by the Beatles were included. Along with its 1967–1970 counterpart, it compiles every single A-side released by the band in the UK.
