Product Description

Product Description

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.

Over ten years after it's first release this remains an essential Beatle purchase. The soundtrack and movie songs [hence the Yellow Submarine Songtrack title] have all been digitally remastered and remixed. Purists will of course want to stick to the new stereo and more importantly mono box sets. Contemporary listeners or those who just want to hear the songs jump alive on the latest sound systems will thoroughly enjoy the updated sound to be found here. Myself?
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 [1999] 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!

Many people complain that this album do not contain many orchestral score made by beatles fifth member George martin but it is really pointless.the label clearly says it is SONGTRACK no album contains almost all songs that were in the movie without orchestral pieces.while the mix of old soundtrack was simply two channels without any impressing middle here it is...awesome multichannel sound! i am not familliar with all these 5.1 surroundings or any other remastering formats but the sound of remastered "Yellow submarine" is simply stuning.listen to "Baby, you're a rich man" is version from "magical mystery tour" and listen to this version from here.and "Eleanor rigby" with huge surrounding sound simply will make your jaws fall.
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.

it struck me while listening to this newly designed Yellow Submarine 'songtrack'..........that, this is like a Beatles album but with the george ratio more even.
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.

However swell the remastering job, this is not the Yellow Submarine album... it's completely missing George Martin's excellent instrumental work from the movie soundtrack, and as such it's revisionist history, done to pump up sales.
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.

The Songtrack for Yellow Submarine is a better investment than the Soundtrack version.
The Yellow Submarine soundtrack features only four original songs, Hey Bulldog, All Together Now, Only a Northern Song and It's All Too Much, plus Yellow Submarine and All You Need is Love. The remainder of the disk is the orchestral score written by George Martin, and while it has its moments, it's not something that I would listen to over and over.
Of the originals, I like Hey Bulldog and It's All Too Much. All Together Now is a children's sing-along, with some lyrics you might not want the children singing. Only a Northern Song is a cynical George Harrison composition with little in the way of melody or interesting lyrics. The message is, it doesn't really matter what we write, you'll devour it.
Hey Bulldog, a little meanie from John Lennon, has a great rhythm groove and some biting lead guitar. Great for cranking up in the car. It's All Too Much is full of feedback, reverb, and waves of guitars.
This disk also collects an odd assortment of songs that span from Rubber Soul to Magical Mystery Tour. These are probably the most "visual" songs, aka psychedelic, that worked well with the animated medium presented in the film. What a coup to pull Nowhere Man, Eleanor Rigby and Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds into one set. There are also the lesser known nuggets like George Harrison's Love You To and Think For Yourself.
The remastering gives all these songs a fresh makeover. Well worth adding to your collection.
