Digitally remastered digipak edition of this classic 1969 soundtrack album from The Beatles featuring 'All Together Now', 'Hey Bulldog', 'It's All Too Much', 'Yellow Submarine, 'All You Need Is Love' and more songs from The Beatles plus incidental music from the animated film. The album has been remastered at Abbey Road Studios in London utilizing state of the art recording technology alongside vintage studio equipment, carefully maintaining the authenticity and integrity of the original analogue recordings. Within the CD's new packaging, the booklet includes detailed historical notes along with informative recording notes. A newly produced mini-documentary on the making of the album is included as a QuickTime file on each album. The documentary contains archival footage, rare photographs and never-before-heard studio chat from The Beatles, offering a unique and very personal insight into the studio atmosphere. Capitol. NOTE: Yellow Submarine was never released in mono and is not available in The Beatles In Mono boxset.
The most dashed-off of the Beatles' records, Yellow Submarine doesn't have much to it: the goofy title track and "All You Need Is Love" are reprised from earlier discs, George Martin's trifle of a score to the animated Submarine feature takes up the second half, and that leaves just four relatively insubstantial new tracks. The Beatles' throwaways are anyone else's classics, though: "Hey Bulldog", the last song Lennon and McCartney wrote in full collaboration, has the instinctive urgency of their best work, Paul's singalong "All Together Now" is awfully cute, and more than one band has dedicated its career to trying to replicate what George's guitars are doing on his dazed, pulsing "It's All Too Much". --Douglas Wolk --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

While admittedly not a "classic" on the order of "Sgt. Pepper", still an important, essential album for any Beatles fan. Comprised of half Beatles tunes and half soundtrack music composed by Beatles producer George Martin for the splendidly entertaining and visually appealing animated film "Yellow Submarine", there's definitely some "must hear" music on this disc.
George Harrison's "It's All Too Much" is undoubtedly the standout among the group's tracks here, a most excellent exercise in psychedelia graced with some of George's finest mind-blowing guitar effects ever (and not just the lead-in solo, either; listen closely throughout and you'll hear some brilliantly effective sonic coloring and texturing from George). A much overlooked and underrated contribution from Mr. Harrison.
George Martin's soundtrack music, far from being mere album filler, is in fact, in this reviewer's opinion, the real reason to buy this album. Mr. Martin's genius, so wonderfully effective in so much of the Beatle's work, is finally given a chance here to shine out in all its extraordinary brilliance. These are some wonderfully creative, brilliantly orchestrated compositions, displaying an amazing range of moods and colors, from the sublimely beautiful to the evocatively narrative (you can almost *see* the movie while listening to this music), with nary a dull moment. You will *not* find this music boring, I can assure you.Read more ›

This album consists of two songs previously released on earlier Beatles albums (Yellow Submarine and All You Need Is Love), four previously unreleased songs (All Together Now, Only A Northern Song, Hey Bulldog, and It's All Too Much), and the rest of the songs are unreleased orchestral tracks by George Martin. This is by far the Beatles weakest album due to the fact that it only contains four new Beatles tracks. However, the unreleased tracks are, for the most part, nothing short of excellent. Only A Northern song and It's All Too Much are George Harrison tracks that are severely underrated due to the fact that this is the album they appear on. The former is a psychedelic masterpiece. Paul McCartney's All Together Now is the one throwaway of the new tracks, it's basically a children's sing-along kind of song. The masterpiece of these unreleased tracks is John Lennon's Hey Bulldog. This is everything a rock and roll song should be, and is arguably the band's finest song.
This album IS worth purchasing if you're a fairly large Beatles fan, BUT MAKE SURE IT'S THIS VERSION YOU BUY! The newest reissue got rid of the orchestra music and replaced it with godawful remixes of older songs by the band. Put simply, this album is good material, but it just isn't enough.
But it is the Beatles, after all, and even throwaways for this band can get feet tapping. Knowing the cartoon film would be geared more to a teeny-bopper/kiddie crowd, the band included the goofy rocker Hey Bulldog, which sounds like it wants to be a great song, and the singalong silliness of All Together Now. Then you have the irony of George Harrison's insipid Only A Northern Song. However, Harrison does offer one of his best tracks here, the rocker It's All Too Much, and shows that he was indeed a fine guitarist. That alone elevates this disc to its 3-star rating.
So, buy a 'best of' collection for the band's classics. Get this disc to complete your set of Beatle albums and to hear It's All Too Much. (And watch the film -- it is cute, although the humor is terribly English.)
