Whereas this was marketed as a double A-side in Britain, Capitol chose to throw all its weight behind ‘Yellow Submarine’. It’s relatively poor showing in the charts (it only reached number two) was caused in part by their record ban in the Southern states – John had just caused a furore with his ‘Jesus’ comment.

It was also the group’s 21st gold record, beating the record previously set by Elvis.
