Background: Reel Music was a compilation album released in 1982 by Capitol Records that contained songs that had appeared in the Beatles’ films A Hard Day’s Night, Help!, Magical Mystery Tour, Yellow Submarine and Let It Be.
To promote the album, Capitol pressed 12,000 numbered copies on yellow vinyl. These were issued strictly as promotional items and were not offered for sale to the public.
The album featured stereo mixes that were rare to the US or previously unavailable (per Wikipedia):
- The first US release of the British stereo mix of “I Am the Walrus”. Previous American releases of the song had the intro edited like the mono mix, although an edit of the British version appeared on Rarities two years before
- The official American debut of the songs “A Hard Day’s Night” and “Ticket to Ride” in true stereo
- A unique stereo edit of “I Should Have Known Better”, with the harmonica error in the intro fixed. This version was issued only on the Capitol pressing and has never appeared on any other record.
