The Beatles Ballads, Parlophone PCS 7214.

Published May 10th, 2013

Release October 20, 1980. Most of these tracks appear on Love Songs. Although a better compilation album than Love Song, it contains nothing new, no previously unreleased tracks or even stereo versions of formed mono recordings. A remixed version of “Norvegian Wood” is included with the backing track now on the right-hand channel instead of on the left and the vocals mixed into the center. Also, someone in the depths of EMI seems to have confused and reversed the stereo on “Yesterday”, “You’ve Got To Hide Your Love Away”, “She’s Leaving Home” and “Here, There And Everywhere”.

The album sleeve manufactured by Garrod & Lofthouse ltd,
