this album

picked up an old copy for my dad recently (him and his brothers had it growing up)

it somehow manages to do a good job summing up a lot of their career in 10 songs/32 minutes

pretty good comp!

It holds together surprisingly well as an album considering the near random nature of the track selections.

I agree, the tracks flow well together. The cover of the album is also great.

Hey Jude exists as an album for me, as it was quite a while before I got Past Masters and this had so many good tracks that weren’t on the other albums, so it exists in my mind as a complete work and a really good enjoyable one.

My parents owned a handful of Beatles LP’s when I was a kid and I loved ‘Hey Jude ‘ to the point where, along with ‘Love Songs’, it was my go-to album. The music was good (more side two) but what got me all the time was the album cover, especially with how John looked. I’ve always loved the hat, black almost ceremonial clothes, glasses and mad beard. Even now he looks very different to other three to the point where he looks like he is from a different century (I don’t know what exactly but something like a very religious figure from the 1800’s), hundreds of years ago apart from George, Ringo and Paul who are very modern looking (for that time). I love the August 1969 photoshoot where it’s the Beatles together but very separated; even the back cover photo they don’t look like they are a band.

If I had the choice of only two compilation albums to own of the Beatles, I will always be opting for ‘Love Songs’ and ‘Hey Jude ‘.

That was the only Beatles Capitol album that I never bought growing up. What’s strange about this album is Capitol still omitted a few songs that never made it to a Capitol album, and yet there was room to put them on it????  Huge missed opportunity!

 

Unfortunately, I don’t remember what those few songs are, maybe someone can chime in????

 

Edit:  Misery & There’s A Place are 2 that I can think of… They made it on the 3 unique Canadian Capitol albums, but not the U.S. albums.

The Inner Light should definitely be on there. Maybe I’m Down . I wouldn’t put anything else pre-1966. It would tip the balance too far.

Found my first copy of “Hey Jude ” on 8-track in ’86, when I was slowly acquiring the canon one used item at a time: An  exciting find, primarily cause it was the only album with “Rain “, a relatively obscure, instantly enthralling Beatle song that I’d only ever heard a single time before, two years previously, when Ringo himself played the record on his “Ringo’s Yellow Submarine ” syndicated radio show, calling it his favourite of his drumming performances.

I absolutely loved this compilation back in the day, acquiring all the standard UK albums from 1976 (Sgt Pepper as a birthday present)-1978 at a time when I had a lot of free money to spend on music still living at home. Helpfully Magical Mystery Tour came out in UK as an album in 1976 too without having to import at a small fortune. 1977 saw purchase of Hollywood Bowl and Star Club, whilst also got the cheapo Polydor stuff too. That left some gaps now closed by Past Masters , but back then you’d have to try getting hold of singles to fill the gaps which wasn’t that easy in the pre-internet days – until Rarities helpfully came out in 1978 which I managed to acquire by persuading my friendly local record shop they’d make more by selling the albums individually and sell me that album with the box too ( which they did); and Hey Jude finally emerged in 1979 plugging the last gap in the ‘standard’ catalogue legally and readily available up until then (I’m talking about you The Beatles Christmas Album) – until the US Rarities piqued my interest in even more obscure versions. It’s such a great album, got regular plays as if it was a ‘proper’ album, and really it’s every bit as well done as the Magical Mystery Tour album was in my opinion – these two are head and shoulders above any of the other US butcherings. It’s a shame it gets largely forgotten these days

One of the better US Capitol albums, great cover too.  Not gonna lie though, I always thought the older songs sounded a little odd alongside the newer ones.

I recall a rumor that the older songs on this album were re-done by The Beatles as a challenge to see if they could still sing & play like the old days.  I guess this rumor is false…?

I’ve never heard that, but I’d say it’s false. They sound like the original recordings to me.

Bernard Purdie played the drums. They asked Pete to return but he was too busy baking cakes.
