As cobbled-together albums go, THE BEATLES AGAIN (also known as "Hey Jude") is about as good as it gets. The 10 songs presented on it are from singles and B-sides, and cover the majority of the band's stellar career. Not one of these could be considered throwaway or filler.

John Lennon's lead vocals on all five of his songs are some of his most powerful ever. The track of "Revolution" presented is the one Lennon came up with following the rejection of his slower "Revolution 1" for consideration as the group's next single after "Lady Madonna." Commonly labeled "the fast-version," some spine-tingling guitar work make this unforgettable. The several Paul McCartney tunes were some of the group's biggest hits. George Harrison's lone contribution, "Old Brown Shoe" is high-energy and has an infectious hook.

If you don't already own this one, here is a "fab" opportunity to enjoy... THE BEATLES AGAIN!

After all was said and done, the folks at Capitol, Apple, EMI and Parlophone released this magnificent album back in the early part of the year 1970. It marked the very first time that all 10 of these songs were officially released onto an American Beatles album. The album's first two tracks, "Can't Buy Me Love" and "I Should Have Known Better", which were featured prominently in the movie "A Hard Day's Night", appeared on that film's soundtrack album issued by United Artists records. Capitol did release the songs as singles in 1964, but they did not appear on a Beatles album until 1970. The next two selections, "Paperback Writer" and "Rain", were released together only as a single in 1966, around the same time as the "Revolver" album. Next up is "Lady Madonna", which became a huge top five hit single in March 1968. It was also the last Beatles single released on the Capitol label, during the 60s. "Revolution" and "Hey Jude" were the B-side and A-side, respectively of the first single issued on The Beatles' own Apple label, back in August 1968. "Don't Let Me Down" was the B-side to the single "Get Back", which was first released in May 1969. "Old Brown Shoe" and "The Ballad Of John And Yoko" were the B-side and A-side of the single released in June 1969. Of the album's 10 songs, 7 of them had previously not been issued in Stereo in the U.S. before. Although this album only reached its peak position of number two on the Billboard Album Charts, it still went on to become one of the band's all-time best selling LPs. The album would eventually become one of the biggest selling import LPs in Great Britain, before recieving an official U.K. release in that country in 1979. One of the reasons that this album still holds up as well as it has is due to the quality of the songs selected for inclusion.Read more ›

I'm writing this in April of 2006.

I was ten years old in 1970, which, I believe, is the year HEY JUDE was released in the United States as an LP. It was not released in the UK at the time (and I don't know if it's ever been anything but an import there) but I do know that it had an official international release beyond the USA. My brother bought a copy in Mexico in 1971, which had the Apple label (as did the one in the United States.)

If memory serves me, ABBEY ROAD, released in 1969, came out and was followed by the HEY JUDE LP, which was followed by LET IT BE. Beatles fans know that LET IT BE was recorded before ABBEY ROAD and that the songs on HEY JUDE spanned the Beatles career, but what is more or less forgotten is that all but two of the songs were not on any LP previously and that, given that this was not released in the UK at the time, this means the United States, and much of the world, had almost a whole album's worth of Beatles material which citizens of the UK had to seek on singles.

Since it was an Apple release, I think an argument can be made that the Beatles, who ran Apple, wanted this collection to be released. While they were disappointed with the Capitol releases before SGT. PEPPER'S because the U.S. was leaving off songs or adding songs not intended for the original albums, starting with SGT. PEPPER's the albums were the same in Britain and the United States. (In an exception to this, the UK only had MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR as an EP, while the U.S. release had all the songs from the EP plus several more.) HEY JUDE becomes the final exception to this rule. Up to 1966, the UK had more complete albums, and starting in 1967, the U.S. seems to have had the same albums as the U.K. plus some extras.

A Kid's Review on October 3, 2005
First and foremost: Why is this not on CD in the USA?????!!!!!!!!

Second: One of their best albums. You can find most of the songs either Past Masters V.2 or Beatles 1, but they're not the same. This has the original releases of Lady Madonna, Hey Jude, and The Ballad of John and Yoko. Overall definatley 5 stars!
