since i already have the german stereo i like to know what is the best mono to have

the first us capitol pressing?


May 15, 2017
badly compiled and film soundtrack items missing
1. Bonzo Dog Do Da Band " Death Cab For Cutie"
(cabaret song in the strip club)
2. Bass Band "race tune"

where are they why are they missing Mr and Mr duophonic Capitol
aww on the Hi-Fi Stereo sound VHS of course!


April 23, 2016
On the original SMAL 2835 Capitol 1967 Stereo release the terrible "duophonic" process was appearently used for "Penny Lane", "Baby You're A Rich Man" and "All You Need Is Love"....
What a shame on such a good album. These three songs actually sound awfully on this release, especially "All You Need...", which is in my opinion one of the absolutely very best Beatles' titles. Such a pity!!

To sebviper: Magical Mystery Tour was originally released in the UK as a double EP, in a gatefold sleeve with a booklet, in 1967. Parlophone is/was a division of EMI.

Hello I have a 2 45 RPM 1967 UK version with ref 7XCE on the vinyls and MMT-A1 Mono with PARLOPHONE and in the sleeve its written E.M.I RECORS but I can't find any reference of this in here! can anybody tell me what my vinyl is about?!

As good as ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ was, ‘Magical Mystery Tour’ was the album I wanted to hear coming on the heals of “Strawberry Fields Forever / Penny Lane.”

‘Magical Mystery Tour’ had substance to it, there was a palatable thickness to the music, floating in on a fog from some ethereal space, and laying across me like a warm blanket. The album was calm and assured, psychedelic and adventurous, with songs that made sense to me in a surrealistic way. This release often becomes lost in the history of The Beatles, coming out right after ‘Sgt. Pepper’ and right before ‘The White Album’ ... but that fact wasn’t lost on me, as I draped multi coloured scarves over my bedroom lamps, burned a bit of incense, and tripped out to the four luscious posters of The Beatles that had just hit the head shops.

Right from the get go, the first track sets the mood ... rushes of noise, brass instruments, swirling, turning, undulating, and drawing me in like I was about to set foot inside the most wonderful circus ever conceived, “Roll up for the mystery tour.” “Fool On The Hill” seems simple enough at face value, but on deeper inspection there are a whole host of things moving, if not out right lurking just below the surface, and in a most unexpected manner gives way to “Flying.” Now “Flying” has to be one of the most haunting songs of all time, an instant classic of immeasurable magnitude with its spaced out atmospheric effects, layerings, and physical presence. From there the music gets expensive and dark ... and a bit paranoid with “Blue Jay Way.” The rest of the album rolls along at a steady pace, both holding your attention, and allowing you to drift off at the same time. This effect can be quite disturbing, it was for me, as I attempted to concentrate on the lyrics, only to be swept away at every turn by the changing chords.

For me, this was The Beatles at their finest. ‘Magical Mystery Tour’ was the culmination of all The Beatles would ever be. This was their high water mark, this was the high water mark of the psychedelic 60’s, before the wave that changed so much across this planet washed back into space and time ... but before it did, the wave lifted The Beatles high, and if you look with just the right eyes, at just the right angle, on any given summer night, you can see this high water mark. And perhaps if you tune your ears, you may capture a spark of what for a brief moment burned like a shooting star for a whole generation.

This is easily my favourite Beatles album, their only album I want to listen to all the way through. Side-A is the sound track to the film, it flows really well and Side-B is that year's singles, that also fit together really well. The result is an album that was very Mode de Jour but that has also stood the test of time.

The edition that I have is the Capital label 2835 on the spine and inside cover. The labels are Capitol black with rainbow ring but with Thinner lettering and "Produced in England by George Martin" on two lines. Side 1 runout is SMAL-1-2835-B-2 with the AL written over ST. It reads as if the original number was ST-1-2835-B-2 but the SMAL was added over it with slightly lighter hand. Same on the B side except the ST is not quite as noticeable. The B side runout is SMAL-2-2835-B-4. Both sides have stamped 1 and star in the dead wax. Hope this may help those trying to figure out if their pressing matches one of the 161 listed.

What has happened to the master releases of the original UK MMT 1967 Mono and the original 1967 SMMT Stereo Magical Mystery Tour Double EP and booklet?

Both of these listing were previously on the data-base. If anyone can let me on whether this is a "glitch" regarding these entries (both of which WERE here--up to one month ago, at least), I would truly love to know what happened?

Thanks a Bunch!
