Perhaps the Beatles didn’t have enough songs to fill an album. Both Yellow Submarine and All You Need Is Love are re-used. Only A Northern Song was a leftover from Sgt. Pepper ’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.

Unlike previous films, Yellow Submarine was made with the intent of mainly using previously released songs with 4 new songs. These 4 new songs were actually songs deemed unsuitable for a major Beatles release, hence why Only A Northern Song is in the film despite being a Sgt. Pepper outtake and why they didn’t have enough songs to fill an album.

They could’ve made a full album had they included the 7 previously released songs featured in the film or if Capitol did what they did with Magical Mystery Tour .

As for Yellow Submarine and All You Need Is Love being re-used, YS is re-used because it’s the title track and AYNIL hadn’t been on a UK album (MMT was released as a double EP in the UK), which is probably why it was released here.

I don’t mind the original Yellow Submarine album as I like the George Martin score but as a Beatles album it is a little bit of a cop out. 

As I mentioned above I think they could have done a really weird but fun album using the four new/unreleased songs plus dialogue from the film, parts of George Martin’s score, and maybe even a remix of the Yellow Submarine song just to make it different from the version on Revolver .

 

Otherwise a version like the American Magical Myster Tour could have been done as well which contains Lady Madonna , The Inner Light , Hey Jude and Revolution .

Yellow submarine is the 3rd  (And final) psychedelic studio album, Sgt Pepper being the 1st, and Magical Mystery Tour being 2nd. thw White Album is a separate era, the india era.

Myself, I consider Revolver  their first psychedelic album.

Yes and No. Revolver may have had those crazy songs, like Tomorrow Never Knows , Love You To , Tax Man, but it lacked that psychedelic color for me. 

But yes, it is partially psychedelic.

Easy.

The problem with Yellow Submarine is, not only isn’t it a proper Beatles album, it isn’t even a proper soundtrack album to the animated film. So it just should have been a full soundtrack album with all the songs and the score, similar to the 1999 Yellow Submarine Songtrack , and it would serve as a film-related compilation just like so many movies have their own soundtrack albums, but it wouldn’t be a canonical Beatles album, in the sense that there would be no songs that are nowhere else available in the “official” Beatles canon.

Only A Northern Song and It’s All Too Much would be on Magical Mystery Tour , OANS as the second track between MMT and Fool on the Hill and IATM as the grand after-finale after the finale of All You Need Is Love . I’ve tried this 13-songs tracklist before and it sounds beautiful.

Hey Bulldog would be a single. There were only two single releases in 1968 with Lady Madonna / The Inner Light and later Hey Jude / Revolution . So I’d release Hey Bulldog sometimes in early summer. It could be a Double A with Across The Universe , but even better would be to leave Across The Universe Wildlife for the charity compilation (and Past Masters ) and have Sour Milk Sea as the B-Side of Hey Bulldog .

And in autumn, some time after the Hey Jude / Revolution single and leading up to the White Album there would be one more single: Not Guilty / All Together Now !

The White Album stays untouched.

Everybody’s happy. heart

I’m still hoping an EP of the originals comes out for Record Store Day or something, particularly if they use those mono mixes from Mono Masters

How isn’t it a proper soundtrack album? It contains 6/11 (7/11 on the US tape releases) of the Beatles songs featured entirely (or almost entirely) in the film and 7/8 of the instrumental pieces (albeit they’re all re-recorded), which leads to a score of 13/19. Not to mention, the songs are in a similar order to how they appear in the film.

Hey Bulldog would be a single. There were only two single releases in 1968 with Lady Madonna / The Inner Light and later Hey Jude / Revolution . So I’d release Hey Bulldog sometimes in early summer. It could be a Double A with Across The Universe , but even better would be to leave Across The Universe Wildlife for the charity compilation (and Past Masters ) and have Sour Milk Sea as the B-Side of Hey Bulldog .

Better yet, have Lady Madonna and Hey Bulldog as a double A-side, those two fit perfectly together. Then, turn the Hey Jude album into this:

Hey Jude :

Side A:

Revolution

Across The Universe

Lady Madonna

The Inner Light

You Know My Name (Look Up The Number)

Side B:

Hey Jude

Old Brown Shoe

Don’t Let Me Down

The Ballad Of John And Yoko
