Brief Album Description:
The North American version, the band's eighth Capitol Records album and tenth overall, includes the songs in the film
plus selections from the film's orchestral score composed and conducted by Ken Thorne, which contains one of the first
uses of the Indian sitar on a rock/pop album. "Ticket to Ride" is the only song on the American release in duophonic
stereo reprocessed from the mono mix. Help! is available on CD as part of The Capitol Albums, Volume 2 box set. This CD
contains both the stereo and mono versions of the American release. A second CD release of this album, which contains
the seven songs in true mono was issued in 2014 individually and as part of the Beatles The U.S. Albums boxed set.
All of the non-movie tracks from Side 2 of the British album were spread out through three American albums. Three were
already issued on the previously released Beatles VI: "You Like Me Too Much", "Tell Me What You See", and "Dizzy Miss Lizzy".
"I've Just Seen A Face" and "It's Only Love" were placed on Rubber Soul with its follow-up album Yesterday and Today
receiving the remaining two tracks: "Yesterday" and "Act Naturally". The American version of Help! reached the number
one spot on the Billboard album charts for nine weeks starting on 11 September 1965.
