Yellow Submarine Songtrack, Apple 7243 5 21481 1 0.

Published December 13th, 2016

First pressing, release: September 13, 1999. When Yellow Submarine was first released in January 1969, coinciding with the animated cartoon film, the only Beatles tracks were on side one. Side two was devoted entirely to George Martin’s musical score for movie. Thirty years later it was decided to restore the film, digitalising the soundtrack in the process, and songtrack album is a result of that remastering. Released in 1999, it was the first collection of Beatles songs to get a digital remix, but more significantly it dispensed with the film score that had appeared on side two and included instead most of the other songs featured in the film that hadn’t appeared on the earlier LP.
