Brief Album Description:
Yellow Submarine Songtrack is a compilation/soundtrack album by the Beatles for the 1999 re-release of the 1968 film Yellow Submarine.
The film was re-released on 13 September 1999 in the United Kingdom and the following day in the United States. In sharp contrast with
other Beatles remasters available, the songs were fully remixed from the original multitrack tapes, something not done for the original
CD release of the Beatles catalogue in the late 1980s (except for Help! and Rubber Soul), nor the 2009 remastered albums. This album
contains only the Beatles songs used in the film, including tracks absent from the original Yellow Submarine album. The extra tracks
replaced the George Martin film score from the original release, while the complete score was included as a DVD audio track in the
CD/DVD package featuring the album and film. The album debuted in the UK charts at number 8, selling 19,000 copies in its first week.
It also peaked at number 15 on the Billboard 200, with 68,000 copies sold in its opening week. In France the album debuted at number 13.
It was reissued on CD on 4 June 2012 (5 June in North America) along with the film restored for DVD and Blu-ray release. While the
original 1999 release was in a jewel-case, the 2012 version was released in a card sleeve, with the booklet and catalogue numbers the
same as the earlier version, with a 1999 copyright date on the disc, and a 2012 date on the card sleeve. The sleeve was in the same
format as the 2009 remasters, being slightly rectangular with "The Beatles" logo in the left hand side of the cover.
