There’s no disputing the enduring charms of these playfully spacey tunes, which add up to a handy distillation of the Fab Four’s psychedelic period.

The music is still wonderful.

Without the visuals, Yellow Submarine Songtrack essentially amounts to an overview of the Beatles‘ psychedelic phase, and, as such, it’s entertaining enough, if somewhat arbitrary.

Considering this isn't technically a new Beatles 'album' and is instead a re-issue of their 1968 animated film without any of them George Martin's classical compositions, it's fucking ace. There's a lot to appreciate and the songs that can only be found on here and the original 1969 album such as 'Only a Northern Song' and 'Hey Bulldog'. The songs that are already on other works such as 'Revolver' and 'Sgt Pepper' are also nice on here too.

I came to this record early in my Beatles listening life and is a record that on the whole is really enjoyable, that I return to on a regular basis.

Essential track - Hey Bulldog
