The ‘Magical Mystery Tour’ project caused a bit of a conundrum for The Beatles because they ended up with too many songs for an EP, but not enough for an album. Their solution was to give us the world’s first double EP.

Capitol decided to take a different course of action in America and scrapped the whole double EP idea by throwing in some of their latest singles – turning ‘Magical Mystery Tour’ into a fully fledged album. Nine years later EMI followed suit and incorporated the American LP into the Beatles’ British catalogue.
