3 stars Another Beatles compilation, cobbled together from the original Yellow Submarine album (minus the George Martin orchestral pieces) and other songs featured in the cartoon.

A few of the less well known Beatles tracks are included - Lennon's great "Hey Bulldog", Harrison's awful "Only a Northern Song" (which was rightly chucked off Sgt. Pepper), his trippy masterpiece "It's all too much" (as covered by Steve Hillage) and the McCartney football crowd singalong "All together now".

What makes this album of interest to collectors is the fact that it's remastered and this is particularly noticeable in "Lucy" (bass drum in the second part of the verse), "Nowhere Man" (listen to the backing vocals) and "All you need is love" (listen to the opening vocals). I'm not generally in favour of tampering with the originals too much (let's hope they don't go around removing all the glitches and mistakes) but the improvement in these tracks is something that most of their albums would benefit from.

Musically speaking, the "Yellow Submarine" project is not one of their best, but the remastering and the inclusion of the other film songs makes this a worthwhile purchase.
