It's only available, I think, on the "original soundtrack" LP.

I always liked this James Bondy spy movie intro, then a moment of silence, then the beginning of "Help!" comes right in.  They should have kept that in subsequent albums.

 

P.S.:  I was amazed to find that on an Advanced Search of this forum "songs" -- I got ZERO results for "help"!!!

Funny Paper, you can find that version in the Capitol Albums. I'm not sure if it was here or somewhere else, but that intro was my ringtone for many months until I changed it to Sherlock's BBC theme.

Its a cool piece and fits the opening of the US LP but not Help! when its on another compilation. It was included on the US Red Album LP in '73 but wisely not on the cd when released in '93 and its not on the remaster either.

I believe that Vic Flick (the guitarist who played the 007 theme) actually plays the twangy guitar on the instrumental bits in A Hard Day's Night.

Great ring tone -- did you include at least the first "Help!" too?

Never heard of Vic Flick before.  I see now that he did the guitar work for the "James Bond theme" in the movie Dr. No (1962) -- three years before Help!

….That's not "007-ish"- that is the Bond theme! Cheers for sharing though, I hadn't heard that before.

 

And sorry to derail this a bit, but Mith, I have some really, really bad news about Sherlock:

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8Before we get back to stay-on-topic, I thought the British release was still on track but the American release was delayed? The fandom on Tumblr is on fire about it all. I just got into Sherlock about a month ago, but I am hooked. I really hope you're right, Mith. I sooo don't want to have to wait until 2014 to see the next season! But I thought of the possibility that the production and release could be delayed because of Benedict's role as Brian in The Fifth Beatle. So if it's all delayed for The Beatles' sake, I think I could live with it lol. a-hard-days-night-george-10
