Does anyone know if the Beatles' US capitol albums have been issued as single cds?  I know of the 2 Capitol box sets, but not of any single cd releases.

No individual cd's have officially been released. Back in 1987 the Beatles catalogue was standardised with the UK albums being adopted as the officially available versions and all others being taken off the market.

 I doubt volume 3 will see a release any time soon. What remains? Revolver, Yesterday and Today, A Hard days Night (tho that was a United Artists release. I presume the copyright is back with Capitol tho.) Any others? I know there was The Beatles Story but that was mainly interviews and an excerpt of 1 song from the Hollywood Bowl so we can probably count that out. I suppose Hey Jude and Magical Mystery Tour should be included as US albums even the MMT was adopted as the official version back in '87 and Hey Jude was a compilation on Apple. MMT might even have a different set of mixes. Oh and the US Rarities from '79.

 

Apple, Capitol and The Beatles missed an opportunity only doing the boxes but i think the reason was that they didnt want Beatles '65 sitting alomgside Beatles For Sale or two different versions of Help! in the same cd aisle. I can see where they are coming from, i really dont want to see 105 cd variations in the beatles catalogue like we have with Elvis and Buddy Holly but i would like to buy some of the US albums. I dont have a copy of the boxes. Tho i was tempted £40 each for some alternate mixes was too pricey. Im in Scotland.

On a side note when the Mono Box set was released back in 2009 there were reports of dealers/retailers who were opening the boxes and selling the mono cds individually. Who's to say that this didnt happen with the Capitol boxes.

I can see that happening, especially since the Parlophone recordings were also issued in mono (for the purists) along with the latest stereo masters releases.   I guess I could always take the proper songs and make my own Capitol Canadian discography.

There are bootleg CD's of the Capitol albums on eBay or other places that sound just as good as the Capitol box sets; and of albums like Y. and T. or Revolver that were left off the box sets. Here's an example of Y and T with the alternate blue cover:

I dont want to get the site into trouble as i dont know how far you can go without people getting lawsuit ideas but to pay for bootlegs/alternate releases is throwing your money away. There are numerous places to get the u.s. albums online but you do have to be very very careful where you go (im not posting links or hints or anything like that). Otherwise you're computer becomes as useless as a chocolate baking dish.

And remember anything other than the fully official apple endorsed capitol released highly expensive u.s. boxsets are illegal (that should keep the lawyers happy and the vultures away).

Here is some information I found on line regarding the Capitol Albums from the box set. I cut and pasted this into a word document and included below.

There are a lot of different mixes both in Stereo and Mono that are different then the new re-mastered versions from EMI.

Here you go:

 

The Capitol Albums, Vol. 1

The Capitol Albums Volume 1 contains the first four Beatles albums issued by Capitol. Each of these 1964 albums is presented first in stereo and then in mono. Because the first four British albums issued on CD in 1987 are mono only, many of the songs in this box set had previously not been issued on CD in stereo. Many of the stereo and mono tracks in the box set are different than the versions appearing in the standard Beatles catalog.

CD1: Meet The Beatles!

With the exception of duophonic mixes made for the songs appearing on the U.K. single "I Want To Hold Your Hand" b/w "This Boy," all of the songs on the stereo version of the album are the same stereo mixes used on the British album With The Beatles (except for "I Saw Her Standing There," which was on the U.K. Please Please Me LP). The stereo album was mastered by Hal Muhonen on December 19, 1963. The mono version of the album has Capitol-created mono Type B mixdowns for all of the songs except for "I Want To Hold Your Hand" and "This Boy," which are the same mono mixes as the U.K. single. Lee Minkler made the stereo-to-mono mixdowns on December 19, 1963. The mono album was mastered by Billy Smith later that day.

British counterparts: With The Beatles LP and Long Tall Sally EP 

1 I Want To Hold Your Hand [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:25 
2 I Saw Her Standing There [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:55 
3 This Boy [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:15 
4 It Won't Be Long [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:13 
5 All I've Got to Do [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:04 
6 All My Loving [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:09 
7 Don't Bother Me [Stereo] Harrison 2:29 
8 Little Child [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 1:47 
9 Till There Was You [Stereo] Willson 2:15 
10 Hold Me Tight [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:33 
11 I Wanna Be Your Man [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:00 
12 Not A Second Time [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:11 
13 I Want To Hold Your Hand [Mono Version] Lennon, McCartney 2:27 
14 I Saw Her Standing There [Mono Version] Lennon, McCartney 2:54 
15 This Boy [Mono Version] Lennon, McCartney 2:15 
16 It Won't Be Long [Mono Version] Lennon, McCartney 2:13 
17 All I've Got to Do [Mono Version] Lennon, McCartney 2:04 
18 All My Loving [Mono Version] Lennon, McCartney 2:09 
19 Don't Bother Me [Mono Version] Harrison 2:29 
20 Little Child [Mono Version] Lennon, McCartney 1:47 
21 Till There Was You [Mono Version] Willson 2:15 
22 Hold Me Tight [Mono Version] Lennon, McCartney 2:33 
23 I Wanna Be Your Man [Mono Version] Lennon, McCartney 2:01 
24 Not A Second Time [Mono Version] Lennon, McCartney 2:04

CD2: The Beatles Second Album

This uniquely-configured album is full of unique sounding tracks, particularly on the stereo version. The five leftover cover songs from With The Beatles, namely "Roll Over Beethoven," "You Really Got A Hold On Me," "Devil In Her Heart," "Money" and "Please Mister Postman," are the same stereo mixes used on the British album; however, Capitol added a very noticeable amount of reverb to these songs during mastering. Three songs appearing on singles in England, "She Loves You," "I'll Get You" and "You Can't Do That," are duophonic mixes. The other three songs, "Thank You Girl," "Long Tall Sally" and "I Call Your Name," are stereo mixes prepared by George Martin. The stereo album was mastered by Maurice Long on March 17, 1964. The tape box indicates that the songs were "dubbed with E/Q and limiter plus echo." 

The mono version of the album uses Capitol-created mono mixdowns for "Thank You Girl" and the five leftover cover songs from With The Beatles. The mono mixes for "She Loves You," "I'll Get You" and "You Can't Do That" are the same as the mono mixes used for the British singles, while the mono mixes for "Long Tall Sally" and "I Call Your Name" are different than the mono mixes that later appeared on the British Long Tall Sally EP. These unique U.S. mixes were prepared by George Martin. The mono album was mastered on March 17, 1964, by Don Henderson, who chose not to add reverb to the songs. Thus, the stereo and mono versions of this Capitol album have a totally different sound.

1 Roll Over Beethoven [Stereo] Berry 2:49
2 Thank You Girl [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:07
3 You Really Got A Hold On Me [Stereo] Robinson 3:05
4 Devil In Her Heart [Stereo] Drapkin 2:30
5 Money (That's What I Want) [Stereo] Bradford, Gordy 2:53
6 You Can't Do That [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:40
7 Long Tall Sally [Stereo] Blackwell, Johnson, Penniman 2:07
8 I Call Your Name [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:11
9 Please Mr. Postman [Stereo] Bateman, Dobbins, Garrett ... 2:38
10 I'll Get You [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:09
11 She Loves You [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:28
12 Roll Over Beethoven [Mono Version] Berry 2:47
13 Thank You Girl [Mono Version] Lennon, McCartney 2:06
14 You Really Got A Hold On Me [Mono Version] Robinson 3:04
15 De vil in Her Heart [Mono Version] Drapkin 2:28
16 Money (That's What I Want) [Mono Version] Bradford, Gordy 2:50
17 You Can't Do That [Mono Version] Lennon, McCartney 2:39
18 Long Tall Sally [Mono Version] Blackwell, Johnson, Penniman 2:06
19 I Call Your Name [Mono Version] Lennon, McCartney 2:14
20 Please Mr. Postman [Mono Version] Bateman, Dobbins, Garrett ... 2:37
21 I'll Get You [Mono Version] Lennon, McCartney 2:09
22 She Loves You [Mono Version] Lennon, McCartney 2:21

CD3: Something New

All of songs on the stereo version of the album are true stereo mixes. The stereo album was mastered by Maurice Long on July 1, 1964. He did not add echo to the songs as he had done with the previous stereo album.

All of the songs on the mono version of the album are true mono mixes; however, four of the songs, "I'll Cry Instead," "And I Love Her," "Any Time At All" and "When I Get Home," have mixes different than those appearing on the mono Parlophone A Hard Day's Night LP. These unique U.S. mixes were prepared by George Martin. "I'll Cry Instead" is an edit of two takes. The mono version appearing on the Capitol album has an extra verse not present on the stereo mix or the U.K. mono mix. The mono album was mastered by Billy Smith on June 29, 1964.

1 I'll Cry Instead [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 1:48 
2 Things We Said Today [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:38 
3 Any Time At All [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:14 
4 When I Get Home [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:19 
5 Slow Down [Stereo] Williams 2:57 
6 Matchbox [Stereo] Perkins 2:00 
7 Tell Me Why [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:11 
8 And I Love Her [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:32 
9 I'm Happy Just to Dance With You [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 1:58 
10 If I Fell [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:22 
11 Komm, Gib Mir Deine Hand (I Want To Hold Your Hand) [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:31

21 If I Fell [Mono Version] Lennon, McCartney 2:22 
22 Komm, Gib Mir Deine Hand (I Want To Hold Your Hand) [Mono Version] Lennon, McCartney 2:27

CD4: Beatles '65

For this December, 1964, release, Capitol combined the Beatles latest single and a leftover track from the British A Hard Day's Night album with eight songs from Parlophone's Beatles For Sale LP. The stereo mixes for the latter eight songs are the same as those on the Parlophone LP. "I'll Be Back" is the same stereo mix appearing on the British A Hard Day's Night LP. "I Feel Fine" and "She's A Woman" are duophonic mixes prepared from George Martin's mono mixes for the U.S. single. While most of Capitol's duophonic mixes sound great, these two mixes are muddy-sounding echo-drenched disasters. The stereo album was mastered by Maurice Long on November 9, 1964.

The mono mixes for the eight songs from Beatles For Sale are the same as on the U.K. album. "I'll Be Back" appears in a slightly different mono mix made by George Martin specifically for the American market. "I Feel Fine" and "She's A Woman" are the same mono mixes prepared by George Martin for the U.S. single. Both have more reverb than the U.K. mono mixes. The mono album was mastered by Maurice Long on November 10, 1964, the day after he mastered the stereo album. 

1 No Reply [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:18 
2 I'm a Loser [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:32 
3 Baby's in Black [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:08 
4 Rock And Roll Music [Stereo] Berry 2:34 
5 I'll Follow the Sun [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 1:51 
6 Mr. Moonlight [Stereo] Johnson 2:43 
7 Honey Don't [Stereo] Perkins 3:00 
8 I'll Be Back [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:24 
9 She's a Woman [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 3:01 
10 I Feel Fine [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:23 
11 Everybody's Trying to Be My Baby [Stereo] Perkins 2:31 
12 No Reply [Mono Version] Lennon, McCartney 2:17 
13 I'm a Loser [Mono Version] Lennon, McCartney 2:33

21 I Feel Fine [Mono Version] Lennon, McCartney 2:23 
22 Everybody's Trying to Be My Baby [Mono Version] Perkins 2:25 

 

The Capitol Albums, Vol. 2

The Capitol Albums Volume 2 contains the four Beatles albums issued by Capitol in 1965. The set, which contains stereo and mono versions of all 92 tracks (with all of the tracks on The Early Beatles and many of the tracks on Beatles VI being released in stereo on compact disc for the first time) was announced on 22 March 2006. Like The Capitol Albums, Volume 1, the CDs did not contain the original George Martin mixes released in Britain in the 1960s. Instead, the CDs were mastered from mixes prepared by Capitol A&R executive Dave Dexter, Jr., who, in 1965 took the submaster tapes from Capitol Records' vaults and added reverb to several tracks and simulated stereo on mono tracks (the proof that these are Dexter's mixes being the false start on "I'm Looking Through You"). Initially, however, the CDs only used Dexter's stereo mixes, with the mono tracks consisting of the two stereo channels folded into a single channel. Dexter's mono mixes were made available on the second pressings of these albums.

CD1: Early Beatles

This album contains 11 of the songs originally appearing on the Please Please Me LP in England and on the two versions of Vee-Jay's Introducing The Beatles in the U.S. The songs were recorded on a two-track recorder with vocals on one side and instruments on the other. Capitol used the same severe stereo separation mixes that appeared on the British stereo album. "Love Me Do" and "P.S. I Love You" are the same fake stereo mixes made under George Martin's supervision for the British stereo album. (No true stereo mix was possible because EMI did not keep the multi-track masters for these songs.) The mono version of the Capitol album has true mono mixes for "Love Me Do" and "P.S. I Love You," but the other nine songs are unique Capitol stereo-to-mono mixdowns. 

Counterparts: British Please Please Me LP and Vee-Jay's Introducing The Beatles 

1 Love Me Do [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:21 
2 Twist And Shout [Stereo] Medley, Russell 2:36 
3 Anna [Stereo] Alexander 2:57

21 A Taste Of Honey [Mono Version] Marlow, Scott 2:05 
22 Do You Want To Know A Secret [Mono Version] Lennon, McCartney 1:56 

CD2: Beatles VI

This album from June, 1965, features the six leftover tracks from Beatles For Sale plus the B-side "Yes It Is," the debut of two songs ("You Like Me Too Much" and "Tell Me What You See") that would later appear on the British Help! LP and two songs specifically recorded for the Capitol album, "Bad Boy" and "Dizzy Miss Lizzie." All of the songs except the single "Yes It Is" appear in the same stereo mixes as on the British albums. "Yes It Is" is a unique duophonic mix. The stereo album was mastered by Maurice Long and Wally Traugott on May 14, 1965.

The mono mixes are the same mono mixes as on the British albums, although five of the six leftovers from Beatles For Sale ("Kansas City" being the exception) are identified on the mono tape box as "1 to 1 Remix with Echo & Rev. CCT." This means that these songs have added echo and reverb, although the amount added is, unlike the cover songs on stereo version of The Beatles' Second Album, barely noticeable. The mono album was mastered by Wally Traugott on May 14, 1965.

1 Kansas City [Stereo] Leiber, Stoller 2:40 
2 Eight Days A Week [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:45 
3 You Like Me Too Much [Stereo] Harrison 2:37 
4 Bad Boy [Stereo] Williams 2:21 
5 I Don't Want to Spoil the Party [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:35

8 Yes It Is [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:41 
9 Dizzy Miss Lizzie [Stereo] Williams 2:54 
10 Tell Me What You See [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:38 
11 Every Little Thing [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:09

20 Dizzy Miss Lizzie [Mono Version] Williams 2:55 
21 Tell Me What You See [Mono Version] Lennon, McCartney 2:38 
22 Every Little Thing [Mono Version] Lennon, McCartney 2:05 

CD3: HELP!

All of the Beatles songs , with the exception noted below, are the same stereo mixes from the British Help! LP. Although a stereo mix of "Ticket To Ride" was made prior to Capitol compiling its soundtrack album, EMI did not send the stereo mix to Capitol. Apparently unaware that a stereo mix of the song was available, Capitol created a duophonic mix of "Ticket To Ride" for its stereo LP. The five instrumental tracks and the uncredited 15-second "James Bond intro" to "Help!" were scored by Ken Thorne and appear in true stereo mixes. The instrumentals were edited from the film soundtrack by John Kraus under the supervision of Dave Dexter. The stereo album was mastered by Hal Muhonen on July 2, 1965. The only true mono track on the mono version of the album is "Ticket To Ride." The others tracks are unique Capitol stereo-to-mono mixdowns.

1 Help! [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:39 
2 The Night Before [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:36 
3 From Me To You Fantasy [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:07 
4 You've Got to Hide Your Love Away [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:12 
5 I Need You [Stereo] Harrison 2:31 
6 In the Tyrol [Stereo] Thorne 2:25 
7 Another Girl [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:08 
8 Another Hard Day's Night [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:31 
9 Ticket To Ride [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 3:07 
10 The Bitter End/You Can't Do That [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney, Thorne 2:25 
11 You're Gonna Lose That Girl [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:18 
12 The Chase [Stereo] Thorne 2:30 
13 Help! [Mono Version] Lennon, McCartney 2:39

23 You're Gonna Lose That Girl [Mono Version] Lennon, McCartney 2:18 
24 The Chase [Mono Version] Thorne 2:27 

CD4: Rubber Soul

Ten of the twelve songs on this unique Capitol configuration are from the British album of the same title. Except as noted below, Capitol used the same stereo mixes as those on the British album. Capitol used the November 11, 1965 mix of "The Word" rather than the later November 15 mix found on the British LP. Also of note is the false start guitar intro to "I'm Looking Through You" that is present only (at least until 2006) on the stereo Capitol album. The two leftover tracks from Parlophone's Help! LP, "I've Just Seen A Face" and "It's Only Love," are the same as the stereo mixes on the British album. Nearly all of the stereo mixes made during the Rubber Soul sessions have the vocals placed almost exclusively in the right channel, which has little, if any, instrumental backing. The left channel occasionally has backing vocals, but on most songs is limited exclusively to instruments. The stereo album was mastered by Hal Muhonen on November 16, 1965.

A limited number of stereo discs have added reverb that is not present on any other version of the album. These records were pressed with metal parts originating from a later master cut in New York and have W8 in the trail off area to side one and W14 in the trail off area to side two. 

Except as noted below, Capitol used the same mono mixes as those on the British album. Capitol used the November 9 mix of "Michelle" rather than the later November 15 mix found on the British LP. The two leftover tracks from Parlophone's Help! LP are the same as the mono mixes on the British album. The mono album was mastered by Billy Smith on November 16, 1965.

1 I've Just Seen a Face [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:06 
2 Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown) [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:06 
3 You Won't See Me [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 3:23 
4 Think for Yourself [Stereo] Harrison 2:19 
5 The Word [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:47 
6 Michelle [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:44 
7 It's Only Love [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 1:56 
8 Girl [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:30 
9 I'm Looking Through You [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:30 
10 In My Life [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:26 
11 Wait [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:14 
12 Run for Your Life [Stereo] Lennon, McCartney 2:25 
13 I've Just Seen a Face [Mono Version] Lennon, McCartney 2:06 
14 Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown) [Mono Version] Lennon, McCartney 2:06 
15 You Won't See Me [Mono Version] Lennon, McCartney 3:23 
16 Think for Yourself [Mono Version] Harrison 2:19 
17 The Word [Mono Version] Lennon, McCartney 2:47 
18 Michelle [Mono Version] Lennon, McCartney 2:44 
19 It's Only Love [Mono Version] Lennon, McCartney 1:56 
20 Girl [Mono Version] Lennon, McCartney 2:30 
21 I'm Looking Through You [Mono Version] Lennon, McCartney 2:30 
22 In My Life [Mono Version] Lennon, McCartney 2:26 
23 Wait [Mono Version] Lennon, McCartney 2:14 
24 Run for Your Life [Mono Version] Lennon, McCartney 2:20 

The initial production run of The Capitol Albums Volume 2 used improperly compiled masters for the Beatles VI and Rubber Soul discs. Although the discs sound great, they are not historically accurate in that the mono versions of those two albums are stereo-to-mono mixdowns. Oddly enough, The Early Beatles and Help! were originally prepared by Capitol in 1965 as stereo-to-mono mixdowns. So the initial production run of the box set has proper 1965 stereo-to-mono mixdowns for The Early Beatles and Help! combined with improper 2006 stereo-to-mono mixdowns for Beatles VI and Rubber Soul. Future production runs used the proper mono mixes for those albums. Both sets of mono tracks are included here.
