I only replaced one track.  Rain is a great track that could have well fit with MMT instead of being scrapped.  Otherwise, I shifted the tracklist to gradually move it from poppy to psychadelic.

Is 'Rain ' psychedelic, aside from the backwards ending its a straight-forward pop/rock track? I find it to be badly out of place here.

I still find it difficult to call MMT anything but an EP as the Beatles officially released it, nothing more.  Sure Capitol Records did a bang up job, taking all the Singles from that year that didn’t make it to an LP, but holding that little EP in my hands is Magical. heart

But that is old! No need for hands, just get the songs individually and not ever know that there was an EP/LP to begin with!

This thread is quite old (maybe dead), but I was recently thinking about this so I thought I'd chip in my thoughts.

There were a few great songs in limbo right around the time the EP was released (late 67) that could have been added to make a fully fleshed out album, so this what I came up with:

Side A:

1. Magical Mystery Tour

2. Blue Jay Way

3. Your Mother Should Know / Flying

4. All Together Now

5. Only A Northern Song

6. I Am The Walrus

 

Side B:

1. Hello Goodbye

2. Baby You're A Rich Man

3. The Fool On The Hill

4. All You Need Is Love

5. It's All Too Much

 

Strawberry Fields Forever / Penny Lane came out a long time before Magical Mystery Tour , and having gotten a single release it wouldn't have made sense to throw them on an album later. They were omitted from Sergeant Peppers for that same reason. Some of these songs blend together really nicely in this order (Your Mother Should Know and Flying are in the same key and a similar tempo, so it might have made the track all around more interesting if they were connected). These are songs recorded within what would have been an appropriate timeframe for a follow-up album as well (after Sergeant Pepper, before they went to India)

I like the idea of making an album off of the Magical Mystery Tour EP tracks and adding the songs that were in limbo to make an album but if that did happen then what would become of the Yellow Submarine album?

I'm sure it would have been an album of previously released tracks from the film plus Hey Bulldog and George Martins compositions as well.

I also like that you omitted Strawberry Fields Forever and Penny Lane because they were recorded before Pepper.

Anyway this is the tracklist that I would go with:

1. Magical Mystery Tour

2. The Fool On The Hill

3. Flying

4. Blue Jay Way

5. Your Mother Should Know

6. I Am The Walrus

7. You Know My Name (Look Up The Number)

8. Only A Northern Song

9. All Together Now

10. Baby You're A Rich Man

11. Hello Goodbye

12. All You Need Is Love

13. It's All Too Much

This album would make a very interesting listen, more so than the original and I think it would have a nice flow, also George Harrison would once again have three songs on an album.

I realised that my tracklist wouldn't work because You Know My Name (Look Up The Number) wasn't completed yet so I would keep it the same but omit that song.

The agreement they had with United Artists over Yellow Submarine , @Elementary Penguin, signed before Brian's death, and so before MMT, was that they would provide four previously unreleased songs. By including Only A Northern Song All Together Now  and It's All Too Much  on a MMT album, to fulfil their contract, they would have had to come up with three unreleased replacements, which would mean we'd have a different film.

I do realise that. My tracklist was more hypothetical and if they didn't need those songs for the Yellow Submarine film and album. I also made a hypothetical Yellow Submarine tracklist album which includes Only A Northern Song , All Together Now , and It's All Too Much which contradicts my Magical Mystery Tour tracklist.

 I like to imagine that they'd find a use for those unreleased, untitled jams they'd recorded in May and June. It's fascinating that they'd go into the studio with no songs.

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

Agreed...  Isn't the running order of the tracks different than Side One of the North American release as well?  I seem to remember that 'I Am The Walrus ' or 'Your Mother Should Know ' appears before 'Fool On The Hill' or something...  Speaking of...  Here's a nice version that some of you may not be familiar with:

Prefer the sleeve of the American version though... How about the sped up Trumpet (or whatever the hell it is!) and Paul's bass playing on 'Baby You're A Rich Man '?!  Think I'm gonna spin the U.S. album on my way to work right now!...:-)
