A Collection of Beatles Oldies (subtitled But Goldies!) is a compilation album by the English rock band the Beatles. Issued in the United Kingdom in December 1966, it features hit singles and other songs released by the group between 1963 and 1966. The album was also released in Australia, Mexico, West Germany, Czechoslovakia, Spain, and the Philippines.
The release of this album was the result of EMI not having any new material by the Beatles for the 1966 Christmas season in the manner of the previous three years.
A cover of Larry Williams' "Bad Boy" was the sole new track for the UK market. It had been released in the United States, however, on the Capitol album Beatles VI in June 1965. Most of the other songs had been released as singles.
