What do you think would have it been better if "Yellow Submarine" album was released in "Magical Mystery Tour" format, with other songs from 1968? For example, with following tracklist:

A side:

Yellow Submarine
Only A Northern Song
All Together Now
Hey Bulldog
It's All Too Much
All You Need Is Love

B side:

Across The Universe
The Inner Light
Lady Madonna
Hey Jude

"Yellow Submarine" would have to be included, since it's title song, and "All You Need Is Love" is film's central theme. Releasing those 4 single tracks on LP would be a good marketing trick, and including "Across The Universe" would satisfy John, who was at the time so eager to release it, and fans, who would have a new classic on a new LP. John and Paul are both main authors of 4 songs, George has 3 songs, and Ringo also has a tune he sings. So it also satisfies some "criterias" of "usual" Beatles album.

Your opinion?

I think they should've released the scrapped EP in mid-1969 as they'd planned (and which ended up on Mono Masters) that contained the 4 new songs from the album and Across The Universe
