Beatles Bop – Hamburg Days is a compilation album of the 1961 recording of Tony Sheridan and The Beatles released by Bear Family Records in 2001. To date, this is the most complete collection of the recordings done with producer Bert Kaempfert for Polydor (excluding the other recordings featured on the My Bonnie/The Beatles' First albums that were done by other musicians under the "The Beat Brothers" name)—featuring both mono and stereo mixes of the album. The album was released in a standard two-CD jewel box with a 99-page booklet as well as a Deluxe Edition packaged in an LP-sized box set which included a 120-page hardcover book which featured rare photos, documents, single picture sleeves and historical notes.

The set has since been deleted from Bear Family's catalogue.

^a The recording of "Swanee River" does not actually feature The Beatles, as tapes of The Beatles version were apparently destroyed in a fire. These non-Beatles versions are included to give an example of what The Beatles version may have sounded like.
