“Once Upon A Time…” Songs From The Film “Yellow Submarine”, Apple GEP 8969 (aborted, destroyed).

Published February 11th, 2020

Trial consignment, release beginning of 1969. From the very beginning, the EP was planned to be released in mono and stereo. But due to the six-minute plus length of It’s All Too Much and the addition of the bonus track, the EP was must run at 33 1/3-rpm rather than the standard 45-rpm speed for extended play disc.

There are two versions of the reason for the release of this EP:

Version 1: Following the release of the Yellow Submarine album, the Beatles planned to release a new EP with four songs from the cartoon plus also the previously unreleased Across The Universe, as a cheap alternative to the album.. It was planned to do as a concession to fans who considered that the Beatles did not give them a good value for their money… This version does not seem true. Throwing money away for cheap replays is nonsense, because the album’s circulation was sold despite the high price.

Version 2: Following the release of the Yellow Submarine cartoon, the Beatles initially planned to release exactly the EP. But, subsequently, their plans changed in favor of releasing a long-playing album, on which Side 2 was placed at the disposal of George Martin… Exactly this simple version seems to us the most true.

Unfortunately, the release of the EP was stopped at an early stage and the all circulation was destroyed. How many copies survived is not known.

Stereo version:

The Songs Lennon And McCartney Gave Away, EMI NUT 18.

Published June 10th, 2017

Released April 18, 1979. The conceptual compilation album containing the original artist recordings of songs composed by John Lennon and Paul McCartney in the 1960s that they had elected not to release as Beatles songs. During their career as the main song writers for the Beatles, John Lennon and Paul McCartney wrote a number of songs that thay gave away to other artists, many of whom were old friends from Liverpool. Curiously, the first song that Lennon and McCartney gave away – “I’ll Be On My Way”, recorded by Billy J. Kramer in 1963, is also the only song The Beatles officially recorded for BBC on 4 April 1963. Only one song on this album does not come from The Beatles’ collective recording career, “I’m A Greatest”, a song written by John Lennon that he gave to Ringo for his 1973 album, Ringo. The 19 remaining tracks perfomed by ten other artists were given away during The Beatles’ career from 1962 to 1969.

Hear The Beatles Tell All, Charly CRV 202.

Published May 15th, 2017

Jim Steck, a radio newsman with KRLA in Los Angeles, and Dave Hull, a popular disc jockey with the same station, each conducted interviews with the Beatles during their 1964 American tour. After portions of these interviews were aired on KRLA, Vee-Jay approached the pair and reached an agreement to release the interviews on an album.
Originally was issued in America by Vee Jay Records in November, 1964 (Vee-Jay PRO 202). In 1979, a resurrected Vee-Jay International re-issued the record in a stereo cover prepared from the album’s original artwork. Although the cover has the words “STEREO” at the top, the record neither has stereo markings not play stereo.
But England had to wait until 20th February 1981 before the same album was released here. By that time of course, most interested U.K. Beatle fans already owned a U.S. import copy.

Release:  February 20, 1981. The envelope is a complete copy of the 1979 American edition. Was even saved the logo of Vee Jay. In order not to mislead the buyers with pictures of other albums of Vee Jay Records, on the reverse side there was appeared inscription “Unfortunately these records are not availabel on Charly”.

Record has blue labels. Matrix numbers (hand-etched): Side A: CRV 202 A-1  =BOPPIN’ BOB=; Side B: CRV 202 B-1  EG  =De Lane Lea=.
