This USA version has 3 track changes to conform with Capitol's USA releases
A7 A10 and B1

Eight Days A Week
Penny Lane

Eight Days A Week and Yesterday were not released in the UK as singles at the time
Penny Lane /Strawberry Fields failed to make the UK #1 spot so EMI decided to leave them off the compilation and forget the saga!
Yesterday had it's retro UK release as a further single in the Singles Collection and is in Stereo where the USA single was mono.

This is one of the only sources of the short version of "Hey Jude."
