The Beatles:Mono Masters

We have been sent this description of “Mono Masters”, the “Past Masters” equivalent which will accompany the limited edition boxed set “The Beatles in Mono”, due out on 09/09/09. And it looks like we’ll finally be getting that planned Yellow Submarine EP as bonus tracks.

Past Masters has been recreated as Mono masters to reflect this period,duplicating the Past Masters tracklisting with the exception of tracks that only ever appeared in stereo. As an added bonus, 5 tracks never previously released in mono are included. These are Only A Northern Song, All Together Now, Hey Bulldog, It’s All Too Much plus Across The Universe. These were originally scheduled for release on a planned 1969 EP. There is a fantastic essay in the Mono Masters booklet that explains in detail the history of these recordings and goes some way to highlight just why these versions are so eagerly anticipated.”

    But… "Only a Northern Song" was never released in stereo.

  4. Chris says:

    Anyone know what the proposed track order for the unreleased Yellow Submarine EP was? Easy enough for side one, thanks to the image on this post, but what was the track order for the b-side?
