Yellow Submarine is the tenth studio album by The Beatles in the United Kingdom, released on Apple Records. It was issued as the soundtrack to the film (Yellow Submarine ) of the same name, which premiered in the United Kingdom seven months prior to the album’s release.
Only one side of the album contains songs performed by The Beatles; of the six, four were previously unissued. “Yellow Submarine” had been simultaneously issued in 1966 as a single and on the album Revolver, and “All You Need Is Love” had been issued as a single in 1967. The second side features the symphonic film score composed by George Martin, in versions recorded specifically for the album.
“All You Need Is Love” appeared in either mono or rechanneled stereo, (‘fake stereo’) on the US LP Magical Mystery Tour. It debuted in a true stereo mix on LP for this album. American cassette and 8-track tape versions featured “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” as an extra song on side two.
