1 is a compilation album by The Beatles, released on 13 November 2000. The album features virtually every number-one single released in the United Kingdom and United States from 1962 to 1970. Issued on the 30th anniversary of the band's break-up, it was their first compilation available on one Compact Disc. 1 was a critical success and has gone on to sell over 32 million copies. In addition, 1 is the seventh best-selling album since early 1991[1] and the best-selling album in the US from 2000 to 2009,[2] and the best selling CD of the decade worldwide with record sales in countries as diverse as the US and India. It is also the fastest selling album in history.

"1" was re-released in digitally remastered format in September 2011.[3]

Background

Compiled by producer George Martin and the (then) three surviving members of the band, 1 includes the 27 Beatles songs that went to number one in the United Kingdom on the Record Retailer magazine charts and/or the United States on the Billboard magazine charts. It is worth noting, however, that the song "For You Blue" was listed in Billboard chart compilations at #1, as a double A-sided single with "The Long and Winding Road",[4] but Capitol Records treated "For You Blue" as strictly a B-side and did not promote it as an A-side. Meanwhile, "Day Tripper" was included on 1, since it charted at #1 in the UK as a double A side with "We Can Work It Out", while in the US, only "We Can Work It Out" was #1. The only singles released in both the UK and US that did not reach #1 in either country, and were therefore ineligible for inclusion on the album, were "Please Please Me" and "Strawberry Fields Forever"—both reached #2 in the UK charts. The former was largely known as "The Beatles' first UK number one single"; however, it reached the top spot in the musical magazines New Musical Express and Melody Maker but not on the chart published by Record Retailer (now Music Week). On the other hand, "Strawberry Fields Forever" was part of a double A-side single along with "Penny Lane". Being a double A-side, UK sales policies counted the sales as a half of the real amount sold, a fact that kept the single at #2 in the charts, behind Engelbert Humperdinck's debut single "Release Me".

This album is essentially a combination of both the US and UK versions of the earlier album 20 Greatest Hits, with "Something" added to the mix (that song was left off 20 Greatest Hits because of time constraints). On 1, "Hey Jude" was released in its original full-length version (slightly over seven minutes); on the American version of 20 Greatest Hits it had been released as a shortened version.

Remastering

Before 1, all 27 songs were available mainly in two remastered CD versions, first on the respective Beatles albums released in 1987 and on Past Masters, Volume One and Past Masters, Volume Two, released in 1988. The second remastering was made available on the CD versions for 1962–1966 and 1967–1970 (released in 1993).

According to the liner notes of the album, the original analogue masters were "digitally remastered at 24 bits resolution, processed using Sonic Solutions NoNoise technology and mastered to 16 bit using Prism SNS Noise Shaping." The remastering was overseen by Peter Mew of Abbey Road Studios and took place there.[5]

"1" has been remastered in 2011, this time without the use of Sonic Solutions NoNoise digital noise reduction nor heavy digital limiting, both of which were employed in the 2000 mastering.[citation needed]

Package

The package of 1 was intended to be simplistic and ambitious at the same time. Its cover was designed by Rick Ward, and consisted of pop-art yellow number one on a background red. (The emphasis on the 1 icon was later used on many of the compilations of number-one hits by different artists that followed this album; for example, ELV1S by Elvis Presley or Number Ones by the Bee Gees). On its back cover, the album also included the famous photos of The Beatles taken by Richard Avedon copyrighted on 17 August 1967. The whole project uses exclusively different kinds of Helvetica typeface.

1 was released on mainly three formats—CD (on Apple 7243 5 29970 2), vinyl (Apple 529 3251) and cassette (529 9704). The CD includes a 32-page booklet with a coloured page with international picture covers (a total of 163 covers are displayed on the whole booklet) and details (recording date, location, release date, chart stats) for each of the singles. It also includes on its first two pages a collage with 27 1's in different colours (all of them following the same art as the cover) with the sentence "27 #1 singles = 1" (which was used as a catch phrase for the promo ads for the album), and the following foreword by George Martin.

The Beatles work was always impeccable. Those four young men, John, Paul, George and Ringo, broke so many records and so many barriers and they will be remembered for being the most significant music creators of the twentieth century. This collection of number ones is taken from the most widely circulated charts in the UK (Record Retailer) and the US (Billboard). Looking through the list of songs brings back many memories for me. My first thought was about 'Love Me Do' – our first single. To begin with, nobody wanted to know, even our own record company. But after a lot of hard work it entered the Top 20 in the UK, and in the US it later reached number one. From then on John and Paul seemed to burst with inspiration. Those early songs were so fresh and sparkling, always surprising and delighting me with each new offering. Never did they fall back on a cliché or a rehash of an earlier success. Each one was a gem. Before long their work spurred George into writing great material too, like the classic ballad 'Something'. It barely took eight years to cover this collection – 'Love Me Do' to 'The Long and Winding Road' – but it was a lifetime in the world of rock and roll. A wonderful collection, and wonderful for me to have been there. George Martin

The CD case for the album was rather unique as there was an International Standard Book Number on the back cover.[5]

The LP and the cassette conserved the main art of the CD version, but on a different form. The double vinyl record version was not released in the US, but the imported British edition was available. The vinyl version features a large full-color fold-out poster showing 126 picture sleeves (37 fewer than on the CD), and reproductions of the four Richard Avedon photos. The Avedon portraits also appear on the inside of the gate-fold cover. The records have custom labels featuring the same graphics as the front cover and are packaged in custom inner sleeves. The deluxe packaging of the vinyl album, with its four portraits and poster, is reminiscent to that of The Beatles. The cassette included a 20-page insert, including the collage, the George Martin commentary and paged Avedon's portraits on its inlay and the whole description for the tracks as a total of 36 covers on its inlay reverse.

Sales and chart performance

The reception of 1 surpassed all critical and commercial expectations. It reached #1 in over 35 countries, achieving the record for the album debuting at the top of the most national charts ever. It became the highest-selling of 2000 and later, of the entire decade. This achievement made The Beatles the first and only artist to have the best-selling albums of two different decades. They also had the best-selling album of the 1960s, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. No tracks from "Sgt. Pepper" appear on this album.

In the UK, 1 became The Beatles' 17th #1 album with sales of 319,126 copies (achieving record sales for only one week in 2000). On 18 December 2000, Ananova.com reported that the album has "become 2000's biggest-selling album—in only five weeks." 1 was the first album to stay at the top spot for nine weeks in almost ten years (the last being the Eurythmics's Greatest Hits), the best-selling album of 2000, and the fourth best-selling album of the 2000s so far in the UK. In its eleventh week, 1 sold a total of two million copies in the UK. It spent a total of 46 weeks inside the Top 75. On 11 July 2003 it was certified 8× platinum by the BPI, for over 2.4 million copies sold in the UK. It is the 26th best-selling album in the UK—according to an assessment by the Official Charts Company and the British Phonographic Industry that counted album sales in the UK from 28 July 1956 to 14 June 2009—, and the second best-selling Beatles album in that country (only beaten by Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, which is the second best-selling album in the UK).[6]

In the US the response was similar. It debuted at #1 with a sales over 595,000 copies. In its second week, sales increased to 662,000 but it was knocked off the top spot by Backstreet Boys's Black & Blue. The album returned to the #1 spot the following week, and spent a total of eight weeks at #1, selling over 1,258,667 copies during Christmas week, which was its highest-selling week. With this number, The Beatles achieved a new record: it was the seventh highest one-week sales in Soundscan history, and the highest for an album not in its first week. The album spent 104 weeks inside the Billboard 200 and became the sixth best-selling album in the United States in 2001, and by 2011 it has sold 11,821,000 units, making it the best-selling album of the 21st century in the U.S.,[7] and the fifth best-selling album in the Soundscan era (1991 onwards)[8][9] On 15 April 2005, 1 was certified Diamond in America (a total of 10,164,000 copies were scanned.) 1 is included on the list of the Top 100 Albums by the Recording Industry Association of America.[10]

In Canada, the album debuted at #1 on the Canadian Albums Chart, selling 54,668 copies in its first week.[11] The album was certified Diamond (1,000,000 units) by the CRIA in February 2001, just four months after its release.[12] As of 2009, 1 has sold 1,103,000 units in Canada, making it the fifth best selling album ever in Canada of the Nielsen SoundScan era.[13]

In Germany, the album debuted at #1 and managed to stay there 9 weeks non-consecutive. Though this, it stayed only 17 weeks in the top ten of the German Albums Chart, but 50 weeks in the total chart. By selling 1,650,000 copies and reaching 11× gold, it's the 3rd best-selling album of the decade 2000–2009 and the best-selling non-German language album.[14][15]

In 2009, Apple Corps, The Beatles' company, stated that worldwide sales of 1 had exceeded 31 million copies worldwide.[16]

Vinyl

Each of the four sides of the vinyl represented appropriately different styles and phases of The Beatles' career: in order, Beatlemania's Mersey Beat, folk-rock/pre-psychedelic style, purely experimental/psychedelic style, back-to-basics/rock style. This was apparently a coincidence, considering that the songs are distributed on the sides following a balance-time rule. (The cassette edition comprises the first two vinyl sides on its side A and the last two vinyl sides on its side B, with a length of 38:32 and 40:35 respectively.)

In popular culture

In the 2002 direct-to-video film The Rutles 2: Can't Buy Me Lunch, David Bowie is seen holding a vinyl album entitled The Rutles 1. He calls it a "piece of marketing extravagance." The album's cover is practically identical to that of The Beatles' album, with the Rutles' name appearing in the same dropped-T logo as the one that was used by The Beatles and a large painted "1" in the center, backed a red background.
