Background: In the 1960s, most Japanese LPs were issued in stereo only, so most Japanese buyers never had the opportunity to hear the original mono mixes of most of the Beatles songs.

In 1982, EMI records released limited edition red vinyl pressings in mono of all of the Beatles albums from Please Please Me through Yellow Submarine.  This series was reissued in 1986 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the band’s 1966 visit to Japan.

Released in 1969, Yellow Submarine was the tenth studio album by the Beatles.

The album reached #3 on the UK charts and #2 on the U.S. charts. gave Yellow Submarine a 3 star review:

The only Beatles album that could really be classified as inessential, mostly because it wasn’t really a proper album at all, but a soundtrack that only utilized four new Beatles songs….. What is here, however, is a good enough reason for owning the record, though nothing rates it as anything near a high-priority purchase. The album would have been far better value if it had been released as a four-song EP (an idea the Beatles even considered at one point, with the addition of a bonus track in “Across the Universe” but ultimately discarded).
