New Yellow Submarine picture disc

New picture disc release

July 6, 2018, there is going to be a new picture disc release of the single “Yellow Submarine” b/w “Eleanor Rigby”. This will be a limited edition, although we have no figures. The vinyl picture disc will be housed in a card sleeve with a die-cut hole on the front to show the disc.

Originally released as a single in 1966, this new release ties in with the 50th anniversary of the “Yellow Submarine” film, which premiered in the summer of 1968. A number of products featuring the cartoon designs from the film have been licensed from Apple Corps Ltd. this year, including clothing, figurines, a graphic novel, a book and other paper ephemera.

    For a moment I thought I'd skip this since I have both the 1986 picture disc and the replica single in the 2011 RSD box… but on second thoughts I ordered it anyway. 😉

    Which master will be used for this release? 1999 Songtrack remix, 2009 remaster, 2015 "1" remix or a new one mix?

    Beatlemilio: The copyright text on the back of the pictured cover lists a 2015 production date for the sound recording, which seems to indicate that this single will use Giles Martin's 2015 "1" remix.

    Thanks, Ole M. Olsen. I saw the post on my mobile first and I didn't notice this detail about the copyright.

    Another (Record Store) Day, another rip off, and another rehashed couple of '1' tracks…
    What would have been great would have been a remastered version of the full and uncut 'It's All Too Much' with the full 'Flying/Aerial Tour' on the B-Side as a new Apple Records 12' single…. Some hope they'd be that adventurous, eh?

    Eleanor Rugby B side is a REALLY FAST mix. Not sure if that's an error or a new mix???
