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 .
