About this album

Magical Mystery Tour is a record by the English rock band The Beatles. The record consists of the six-song soundtrack to a one-hour television movie of the same name originally aired in 1967. The six-track double-extended play disk (EP) was released in the United Kingdom on 8 December 1967. In the United States, the record was released 11 days earlier on 27 November 1967 as an 11-track LP which also included five of the six songs on the band’s three 1967 singles on the B-side (“Hello, Goodbye“‘s B-side, “I Am the Walrus”, having also been on the film’s soundtrack on the album’s A-side).

The US album was later adopted by Apple and EMI as the preferred version of the record when The Beatles’ discography was being updated for the Compact Disc format; This was the only US release chosen to be included with the other UK releases (other US records were subsequently released as part of The Capitol Albums volumes 1 and 2 boxed sets, but not individually). The inclusion of the 1967 singles on CD with this album meant both that the Magical Mystery Tour CD would be of comparable length to the band’s other album CDs, and that those three singles would not need to be included on Past Masters, a two-volume compilation designed to accompany the initial CD album releases and provide all non-album tracks (mostly singles) on CD format.
