1967–1970 (also known as "The Blue Album") is a compilation album by the British rock band The Beatles, originally released in April 1973 via Apple Records.

This compilation album spans the years indicated in the title, 1967-1970.

Released with its counterpart 1962–1966 ("The Red Album") in 1973, it reached No. 2 in the United Kingdom and No. 1 in the United States Billboard album charts.

The album was compiled by Beatles manager Allen Klein.

Songs performed by the Beatles as solo artists were also considered for inclusion, but like the cover songs on 1962–1966, limited space resulted in this idea having to be abandoned. Along with its 1962–1966 counterpart, it compiles every single A-side released by the band in the UK.

Songs featured on the album contain singles released from albums and also non-album singles such as Hey Jude.

For the group's 1963 debut LP Please Please Me, photographer Angus McBean took the distinctive colour photograph of the group looking down over the stairwell inside EMI House (EMI's London headquarters in Manchester Square, now demolished).

In 1969, The Beatles asked McBean to recreate this shot. Although a photograph from the 1969 photo shoot was originally intended for the then-planned Get Back album, it was not used when that project saw eventual release in 1970 as Let It Be. Instead, another photograph from the 1969 shoot, along with an unused photograph from the 1963 photo shoot, was used for both this LP and 1962–1966.

The inner gatefold photo for both LPs is by Don McCullin from the "Mad Day Out" photo session in London on Sunday 28 July 1968.

The album cover was designed by American art director and photographer Tom Wilkes, who was responsible for producing some classic album covers, including George Harrison's All Things Must Pass, Neil Young's Harvest and The Rolling Stones Beggars Banquet.

The album was reissued on 180g vinyl in 2014, prepared from the original analogue master tapes.

This is a Double Album 2LP Record on 180 Gram Vinyl, with 28 tracks remastered from the original master tapes housed in a Gatefold Sleeve with Inner Sleeves, pressed in Europe.
