Is that because these were the songs held over for Yesterday and Today?

As you can see from that track-listing this policy worked both ways with 'I'm Only Sleeping', 'Doctor Robert' and 'And Your Bird Can Sing' not appearing in the U.K. until Friday, 5th August, 1966.

I wonder if any hip England fan was humming any of these songs when we won the World Cup on 30th July?!

Ah, Nowehere Man, or as it known in my family, exclusively as "Jeremy's song". Great song, with deep lyrics and nice melody and of course conjours up the image of the fluffy bottomed Jeremy from Yellow Submarine.

That picture in the first post.... I have never realised how tall and lanky the lads were!
