  1. [QUOTE=Phil O'Keefe;n32492917] It might have been an import that you had... then again, I could be wrong too - but I've always heard that it was only out as a double EP (with only six songs) in the UK until the CD was released. :idk: Did your copy have the 1967 singles on side 2 - Penny Lane, Strawberry Fields, Hello Goodbye, etc? That's what we had here in the US, with the MMT film-related songs (Your Mother Should Know, Flying, Blue Jay Way, I Am The Walrus, Magical Mystery Tour and Fool On The Hill) on the first side of the LP. [/QUOTE] Yep, that's the one I have. It's just the same as the CD.
  2. [QUOTE=Phil O'Keefe;n32492592] I went off of UK albums, which most fans consider to be the definitive releases. MMT was released as a double EP in the UK originally - it wasn't until it was re-released on CD in 1987 that it came out in the UK as an album - in a strange reversal, it's really the only "American" Beatles release that's now considered the definitive version. But still... it's a good observation and a valid point for debate. :) [/QUOTE] I'm fairly sure I bought my copy of MMT in the early '80s on vinyl in the UK on Parlophone. Probably an import, but I never noticed if it was. You're correct that it wasn't released in 1967 in the UK as an LP, though.
  3. [QUOTE=Zooey;n32492546] I guess it's arguably a compilation and not an album? Half is music for the film, half is a collection of singles. [/QUOTE] True, and in some places it was only released as an EP.
  4. The Beatles: Rubber Soul, Revolver, Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band Manic Street Preachers: Generation Terrorists, Gold Against The Soul, The Holy Bible The Kinks: Something Else By The Kinks, The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society, Arthur (or The Decline And Fall Of The British Empire), Lola Versus Powerman And The Moneygoround, Part One. (Getting seriously unfashionable here) Marillion: Script For A Jester's Tear, Fugazi, Childhood's End, Clutching At Straws. And of course, everything that Justin Bieber ever did
  5. Good choice, but wasn't Magical Mystery Tour in there before the White album?
