Note:
I do not own The Beatles' songs. They are owned by EMI and Apple Records. I'm just a fan of their music, and I made up this compilation.

The Absolute Best of the Beatles is a Beatles greatest hits compilation album compiled by C.Syde65. While the compilation itself has not been burnt, it was compiled in 2013. This compilation album includes roughly all or at least most of the popular songs written and recorded by The Beatles from 1962-1970.

The "no pause between tracks" box would be ticked, to prevent the Nero Express Essentials software from adding 2 second pauses between tracks, to free up more space on the CD - Hello, Goodbye was originally going to be the opening track of the third disc, but apparently the 24 tracks wouldn't all fit on to the third disc, so I had to make it the closing track of the second disc instead. This was a better decision, as Hello, Goodbye was recorded in 1967, and all the tracks recorded in 1967 were featured on the second disc. The "normalise all audio files" box would also be ticked, to set the volume of all the tracks to a standard volume.

Brainstorms of alternate editions of this compilation

Some brainstorms of this compilation featured I Will instead of I'll Follow the Sun. But of course, now I realised that it wouldn't work out, because then I Will would have to be featured on the third disc. So in order for it to fit, I would have to move some more tracks on the third disc to the second disc, and some tracks on the second disc to the first one.

Other brainstorms feature a clean edition of Back in the U.S.S.R. running at "0:02:48" without the cross fade from Dear Prudence. Apparently all releases of the song outside The Beatles [White Album], feature a fade immediately before the cross fade starts.

An alternate mix of Across the Universe identical to the one from Past Masters but omitting the teenage girls' vocals and the bird sound effects of the World Wildlife Fund version, and playing at the correct speed - same as the version from Let It Be...Naked.

The cleaned up version of Get Back from Let It Be...Naked, but with the coda from the Past Masters version.

The single version of Let It Be from Past Masters, with the second overdubbed guitar solo from the Let It Be version.
