This was supposed to come out in February 1996 (hence the heart-shaped apple logo) but it was pushed back when Paul decided to change the running order on ‘Anthology 2’. It then suffered the indignity of being banned from Radio 1’s play list – not because it was obscene, but because it was deemed to be un-cool!

It had been a long time since the BBC last banned a Beatles record – the last time was in 1967 when ‘I Am The Walrus’ fell foul of Auntie’s moral code.

The CD version came with a couple of bonus tracks: ‘Yellow Submarine’ and ‘Here, There And Everywhere’.

Of the two, ‘Yellow Submarine’ was well worthy of release because it contained the “John O’Groats” spoken passage at the start.
