"The Capitol Albums, Volume 1" is a box set compilation comprising The Beatles' 1964 American Capitol Records releases. The set, which features the official stereo versions of a number of tracks on compact disc, was released in late 2004. The CDs were mastered from submaster tapes from the Capitol Records vaults which were prepared by Capitol A&R executive Dave Dexter, Jr, who added reverb to several tracks and simulated stereo on mono tracks.

The box set debuted on the Billboard 200 album chart on December 4, 2004 at number 35 with sales of 37,303 copies. It spent 6 weeks on the chart. The box was certified with gold and platinum awards on December 17, 2004 by the RIAA.
