Yellow Submarine is the tenth studio album by British rock band The Beatles, originally released in January 1969 via Apple Records.

This particular effort tends to be overlooked by most and considered an anomaly in The Beatles catalogue. While it is different, it has to be remembered that Yellow Submarine was meant as a film soundtrack, and not as an actual Beatles album. It was more of a opportunity to release previously recorded material that hadn’t been used, and can be looked at as the final product of The Beatles’ psychedelic era.

Yellow Submarine is divided into two sections; the first being actual songs written by the band, while the second contains instrumental scores by George Martin featured in the film.

Lennon & McCartney’s contributions have more conventional structure. "All Together Now", is a skiffle acoustic piece with the same "sing-along" nature as the eponymous track, "Yellow Submarine". "Hey Bulldog", has a more elevated pace than the rest of the other tracks, as it displays a return to a typical rock and roll sound. The orchestral ballad, "All You Need Is Love", yet again serves as the denouement for the first side of the album as it did in Magical Mystery Tour.

George Martin’s film scores all share a similar sound of amalgamated structures containing classical music, Raga, and of course, Psychedelic influences.

Yellow Submarine "truly" begins and ends with George Harrison's compositions, "Only A Northern Song" and "It's All Too Much". Both songs share similar aesthetics, though "Only A Northern Song" uses a barrage of eccentric noise samples that are used to create a Psychedelic atmosphere. "It's All Too Much", is a bit easier to conceive as it has a much more pop-oriented orchestration, while relying on guitar distortion. The lyrics also reflect Harrison's usual philosophical ambiguity.

While there’s an argument that Yellow Submarine is more of a collection of songs released to compliment the film, and would have been far better value if it had been released as an EP (an idea the The Beatles even considered at one point), it is ultimately a film soundtrack and that’s what the masses were looking for, a reminder of the movie, after all “video” copies weren’t available in 1969.

This remastered LP pressed in Europe was reissued in 2012 as part of The Beatles in Stereo Vinyl series, with Remastered Audio on 180 Gram Heavyweight Vinyl and reproduced artwork.
