Following on from our exclusive photos of The Beatles US Albums box set, we are working our way through the individual albums to show you real pictures of the real packaging. We started with the first Capitol release (Meet The Beatles!) yesterday, but thought we’d mix things up a bit by skipping forward to the eighth Capitol album (not including The Beatles’ Story) and that is 1965’s Help!
The US version of Help! was a gatefold LP (nicely replicated in the vinyl replica packaging) and contained half the number of songs present on the UK album with instrumentals from the movie sitting alongside the seven Beatles songs.
This reissue of Help! will feature both mono and stereo versions of the album. The rather undesirable but historically accurate ‘duophonic’ stereo mixes (or mono mixes derived from the stereo masters) will not be preserved. Like the UK version of Help! this was issued in August 1965.
The Help! reissue is available separately or as part of the US Albums box set.
