I don't know if anybody's noticed this but there are some unrecognized tracks on the Canadian Help! LP. Can someone get these on the internet?

And if they are, links?

I'll assume you mean in the discography section on this site...

Are you refering to the instrumental tracks? Because 1) there's nothing on them for US version and probably nothing the other versions as well - I haven't checked them yet and 2) Joe's only one guy, I'm sure he'll get to writting those articles when he can. The main article on HELP! does explain those tracks somewhat here.

If you meant something else, let us know.

And welcome to the site!

Thanks Skye.

As I mentioned in the Help! article, you can get those tracks on the Capitol Albums Vol 2 box set, or on the old vinyl. The box set is worth a purchase if you see it, though I don't know if they make them any more. All the Capitol albums contained a range of different mixes from those on the UK versions, so it's interesting to hear the differences.

I didn't write about the Ken Thorne compositions in the /songs/ section because they weren't core Beatles songs (some are based on Lennon-McCartney compositions), although I probably should for the sake of completion. I'll probably put up a sample of the James Bond intro to Help! - under UK law we're allowed to stream up to 30 seconds of any song online without paying for rights clearance, so if I get time I'll clip it and add it to the relevant pages. It's interesting to hear.

I need to do more international discographies. I have all the raw data for loads of countries, but it's exceptionally boring formatting it all, and adding cover artwork where I can find it. The results look good though.

Please don't spoil my day; I'm miles away

I'm guessing this topic is from a Long, Long, Long, time ago.
