Biography

"The story began in Harold Macmillan’s “never had it so good” ’50s Britain. It should be fiction: four teenagers with no more than eight O’Levels between them, running and biking and busing and busking all over Liverpool in search of new chords and old guitars and half-decent drum kit and any gig at all.
They were determined to amount to something – ... Read more in Amazon's The Beatles Store

Product Description

The Beatles's soundtrack to the animated feature "Yellow Submarine".

Amazon.com

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

Customer Reviews

Had to have this complete my CD collection of all Beatles CDs.
Christine Williams
The Yellow Submarine soundtrack features only four original songs, Hey Bulldog, All Together Now, Only a Northern Song and It's All Too Much.
Jack Fitzgerald
"Altogether Now" is kind of annoying and "Nother Song", though I understand why it was written, is just not very good.

As to avoid any confusion, this review is specifically for the remastered version of "Yellow Submarine" since many past reviews are appearing here.

I began my quest to obtain all of the Beatles' remastered CD's with this one per my son's request; he loves the movie as well the music, so this one was an obvious choice for him!

With all of the hype surrounding the release of the remasters, I went into it with a lot of expectations, & after hearing the opening of the title track, my wife & I were believers immediately; our collective "WOW!" reaction was all it took!

The difference between this & the original 1990 CD issue is literally like night & day; the sound is greatly improved & the clarity is incredible. Of course, the technology to achieve this was not there in 1990, so for what it was, it was good; but this is astounding!

If the band tracks are not enough to convince you, listen to George Martin's orchestral score beginning with "Pepperland"; in short, it will take your breath away! Lush strings, horns & percussion all come to the forefront like never before; the sound is so beautiful & crystal clear that you feel as if you're there in the studio with them.

Do not hesitate to buy all of the remasters...I certainly won't!

Makes me laugh when I read bad reviews about any Beatles album.

Although the original Soundtrack to "Yellow Submarine" may not rank at the top of my fave Beatles albums list, it is more representative of the original movie than the more recent re-release that came out with the DVD release.

True, the title track and "All You Need Is Love" WERE previously available on other albums. But the four new tracks were fantastic additions to The Beatles' catalog.... with the exception of MAYBE Paul's silly "Altogether Now". But, as the official review stated, "Beatles throw-aways are any other band's greatest hits!" (paraphrased).

George gets to shine on the Yellow Sub soundtrack. "Only A Northern Song" has a similar melody line and structure as his song from two years prior, "If I Needed Someone", but with a much more psychadelic flavor. "It's All Too Much" is one of Harrison's best tracks ever - with The Beatles or solo. On this track, you can detect the influence his buddy Eric Clapton was having on him by 1968.

John's "Hey, Bulldog" is another one of those Lennon masterpieces that somehow got over-looked, much like "Across The Universe" has always been. It contains one of the most recognizable and iconic guitar/piano/bass licks ever recorded. It also features some of Paul McCartney's best bass work.

"Altogether Now" is a fun song. Not the best Beatles track, but one that is such a part of the whole "Yellow Sub" vibe that it's shortfalls are more than forgiven. As a some-time songwriter myself, I'd have been proud to be able to say that I wrote it!

The instrumentals are just that - instrumentals used as background music for the movie. They are classic George Martin and, just as he worked so well with The Beatles, they work well along side The Beatles' songs.

No Beatles record collection is complete without "Yellow Submarine".

Format: Audio CD
The 1999 Yellow Submarine Songtrack is not the 1969, 1990, 2009 Yellow Submarine Soundtrack. Names are similar and confusing. The 1999 reissue is a totally different alternate Yellow Submarine album. It lacks the George Martin Orchestral tracks but adds in a number of then popular Beatles songs, some associated with the film, to make a sort of greatest hits album. Remember the "Yellow Submarine (1969)" film story is also "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (1967)" too and is "continued" series of songs from that album. The 1999 track listing is virtually totally different from the 1990 or 2009 CDs or 1969 LP. Only sharing about 6 songs. Amazon has the reviews all jumbled up and mixed up. I have not compared the actual sound of the CDs yet. Though since 1999 is between 1990 and 2009, the sound might be an intermediate improvement over the ancient LP (at least for the 6 songs. It like most reissues is surely remixed to some extent. Sure, the regular Yellow Submarine Film Soundtrack albums are short on actual Beatles songs (should be priced as an "CD-EP"), but there are some good ones. Can't rate any Beatles (official album) less than 4 or 5. Buy both albums.

It is stretching things a little bit to describe this as a Beatles album, since half of the album is taken up with George Martin's orchestral score for the movie. Many of these tunes are pleasant enough, and it's certainly of interest to Martin fans, but the reality is they are not Beatles songs.

So only half of the album (six songs) are Beatles' efforts. And only four of them are new. And only two of those are worth shelling out for. Are two songs worth the cost of a whole album?

Die-hard fans will no doubt answer "yes", but I'm not sure what they'll make of this. 'Yellow Submarine' and 'All You Need is Love' are Beatle classics and certainly worthy of another listen, but the fact is that these are not new songs. Of the four songs that actually are new, 'All Together Now' is a throwaway, and the self-consciously ironic 'Only A Northern Song' is not much more. In contrast, 'Hey Bulldog' is a great song; with a catchy stomping riff, a good performance from Lennon on vocals, and a singalong chorus. And Harrison's epic 'It's All Too Much' is clearly the best of the lot; like many Harrison-penned Beatle songs of the late 60's, it seems to point the way forward to 'All Things Must Pass'.

So two outstanding songs from the mid 60's, a couple of good new songs, some filler, and half an album's worth of orchestral noodling. Even allowing for the old "Beatle throwaways are better than most band's best music" theory, this is a very underwhleming release, and not really a proper Beatles album at all. It's definitely not the place to start for casual fans. Recommended for the ultra-dedicated Beatle fan only, and even then solely for completeness' sake.
