Background: Magical Mystery Tour wasn’t conceived as an album; it was originally compiled as a set of two seven-inch EPs, offering music from the soundtrack of the TV film of the same name.
The extended play format had not been as successful in the U.S. as it had been in the UK, so Capitol Records added several songs that had recently been released as singles and turned the project into an LP.
As with most Beatles albums in the U.S., Magical Mystery Tour reached #1 on the American album charts. The U.S. import reached #34 in Great Britain.
Magical Mystery Tour was the last Beatles album to be released in the United States in both mono and stereo, and the mono pressings are quite hard to find compared to their stereo counterparts.
