Argentina discography

The Beatles’ albums in Argentina carried largely the same tracks as the UK editions, often with changes to the artwork and with titles translated into Spanish. There were also two unique Argentina-only compilations, released in 1965 and 1971.

Argentinian singles were made to be played at 33rpm. As with the albums, they were released on the Odeon label. The early singles were released under the name Los Grillos, which translates as The Crickets, but this changed to Los Beatles from early 1964. Again, the release schedule largely followed the UK one, with some variations. Every EP and all but two of the singles had unique picture sleeves.

    Hello, BeatlesBible

    only an accuracy: the spanish title for the argentinian LP “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band”, was “La banda del Sargento Pepper”, with a «l» in the word «de».

    I find beatlesbible.com one of the best webpages about the Beatles (maybe the best?). But I see many inaccurate data in the discography section, and I would contribute for the correct info.

    I’ll stay in tune. Sorry for my poor english.

    Greetings from Spain.

    The correct cat# for the LP “Help!” is LDS 2122 for mono and SLDS 2122 for stereo.

    The same stereo prefix SLDS must be on the stereo albums of “Rubber Soul”, “Revolver” and “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band”.

    Other interesting translations of Beatles song titles in Argentina:
    Strawberry Fields Forever: Frutillas.
    Blacbird: Miralo ( Although the title on the centre paper label on the vinil says Mirlo, blacknird in Spanish).
    Mean Mr. Mustard: Significa Sr. Mustard, then corrected to Malo Sr. Mustard.
    Get Back: Toma Revancha, instead of Regresa or Retrocede, which would have been more in tune with the tone of the lyrics.
