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!
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".
Two songs are rereleases, the two being All You Need Is Love, and the title track. Seven tracks are instrumentals from the film, by George Martin.
The four orignal Beatles tracks alone, however, are splendid.
The First is Only A Northern Song. Penned by Harrison, it was intened for Sgt. Pepper.
The Second is All Togther Now. A cheesy song by Paul, it is sung to the beat of a jump rope tune. It was used in a verizon commercial.
Hey Bulldog is third. THis track was the last REAL lennon/mccartney song. It is a good rocker, with John in good voice.
Last is It's All Too Much. A real roch anthem by George, it is one of the longest Beatles' songs, at over 6 minutes.
All in all, it a great package. Not for beginners, but for everyone else.
