Rereleased to coincide with the digitally remastered reissue of the Beatles' landmark animated film, Yellow Submarine Songtrack remixes all of the original fab four recordings from the movie including a number of songs that were not originally available on the standard Yellow Submarine soundtrack. While George Martin's orchestral score may be missing from the album, that just leaves room to add more songs by John, Paul, George and Ringo. 15 tracks total.
To the horror of their most obsessive fans, the surviving Beatles have proven more than willing to tamper with their pop legacy, as witnessed by the various facets of their massive, occasionally myopic mid-1990s Anthology projects (and the suspect notion of its faux techno-marvel "reunions"). In boldly revamping the soundtrack to their 1968 Heinz Edelmann-designed animated fable Yellow Submarine, the Fabs have shown they're not immune to the irony of the age either: their original involvement in the project was both tentative and minimal. This new version completely excises Beatles-producer Sir George Martin's charming, if sometimes maudlin, orchestral score, offering instead a new "songtrack" containing all the Beatles songs (standout cuts from Rubber Soul, Revolver, and Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, in addition to the four originals unique to the project) featured in the film. The pre-announced "unreleased song" on the set turns out to be the original album's rollicking "Hey Bulldog", one of the last true Lennon-McCartney collaborations. "Hey Bulldog" was also the subject of both a previously excised sequence in the film and a newly edited in-studio video cobbled together from footage shot in early 1968 and previously used in vintage promos for "Lady Madonna". Though it may further upset purists, the band has allowed these tracks to be digitally remixed and remastered into 5.1 surround sound, imparting both a stunning clarity and a new perspective (as well as restoring a "missing" verse and the original six-minute plus playing time to "It's All Too Much") on some of the greatest--if obviously overexposed--songs and recordings in the history of rock. --Jerry McCulley --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.

I'll take both. Unlike many attempts to update the classic rock sounds, this effort really works.
Beatles psychedelia is well represented here. You will find songs from Sargeant Peppers, Magical Mystery Tour, and the Yellow Submarine albums, amongst others. Don't forget to also buy the 2009 mono or stereo versions of these albums to best understand what it was musically all about!
Hardcore musical fans will note that the accompanying Yellow Submarine  dvd contains 5.1 mixes of these songs. And of course the Peter Max cartoon graphics are a psychedlic must-have. Unfortunately, this dvd has been recently missing in action, so one would be well advised, if you find a copy, to scoop it up too!
about the music,"Yellow Submarine" has most of their hits from 1966 - 1968 era with an addition of few new songs like "Hey bulldog","Only a northern song" or "It's all too much".you may think that most of the songs are contained on other regular albums but you must get this album for it's sound.the sound is like beatles should always sound.Paul's bass is almost visible,so is Ringo Drumming.Lennons and Harrison's powerfull guitars rock out of your speakers and vocals are amazingly clear...
remastered "Yellow submarine" songtrack is a great way to get into Beatles music.and one of their best sounding album ever.
in other words, if john and paul had let george slip his songs in a little more on their records, it may have come out something like this!
every Beatles album has included one but no more than 2 harrison songs.
and over time, of course, this slant became to grate a little on george, especially by the time of the final albums as george's song writing confidence was growing ever stronger and he had a lot of material in the can.
and john and paul, famously, were even known to be cool to what george brought to the table.
so, there was an unhealthy undercurrent festering...........not radically, but , subtle , on george's part.
so, with all this history, with the consideration of 'how things were'.........i'm listening to this new songtrack and it dawns on me,,,,,,,,,,,,"hmmmmmmm, this is like a beatles album that never existed-one that came with way more harrison songs than was the norm"
it's like a righting of history........a re-writing of history.
it's like, climbing into a time machine and landing in a time when a beatles album had FOUR harrison songs on it (as this new yellow submarine songtrack has on it)rather than the normal one or two.
when you're used to only the 1 or 2 harrison songs per beatles album and then you put on this new 'songtrack' and a harrison comes at you every 3rd or 4th song, it's quite a shock to the senses-in a good way of course.
in conclusion, along with the as usual superb lennon/mccartney offerings that reside on this newly designed yellow submarine, we catch a glimpse of what a beatle album would've sounded like with a juicier selection of harrison songs mixed in.
Buy it if you like the songs that follow All You Need Is Love, (they're all great songs), but do so with the knowledge that you are not getting the Yellow Submarine album as the Beatles and George martin intended it to be. Only half of that album is here.
This is the Songtrack from the 1999 re-release of Yellow Submarine. IT IS NOT the official soundtrack with the George Martin Orchestra.
It is a collections of Beatles songs that appear in the film either in it's entirety (When I'm 64) or even if it was only for 3 seconds (Think for Yourself).
The Beatles songs have also been REMIXED. Meaning they are NOT in their original format as they are on their respected albums.
Now, having said all that, some of you may find it a negative thing that they MESSED with the Beatles songs. Blasphemy, right? Well then, this record is obviously NOT for you.
I really like the new mixes as an alternative to the originals, rather than a replacement. As long as they original songs are available, they can do whatever they'd like with the Beatles music. I love the Anthology and the Beatles Love album and this Songtrack is great too!
IF you aren't a hardcore Beatles fan, you won't even realize the songs have been remixed. They are done very tastefully.
The end result is a great Beatles collection on record which sounds very crisp. The vinyl itself is pressed on black vinyl (no yellow record here unfortunately) It's a very simple package, but it get's the job done. It's a nice gate-fold too!
