Canadian Rubber Soul
« on: December 29, 2005, 04:12:09 PM »

I noticed today that the track listing on the 1966 Canadian issue of Rubber Soul is different to the 1966 Australian release.

On the Australian issue, Side One, Track One is "Drive My Car". On the Canadian issue, Side One, Track One is "I Just Seen A Face".

What other countries have these differences and why? Any answers would be greatful.

Check this out http://www.earcandymag.com/christophmaus-2005.htm
Interesting to see that in some South American countries The White Album was released as 2 seperate albums
And from that site, in answer to a question as to why The Beatles allowed such manipulation of their recordings.....

Christoph: Like you, I was amazed at how many variations of Beatles-LPs, especially in the years to 1966, do exist. And to show this to other people and to raise their interest was the main reason why I made this book. Most fans only know of the US-Capitol-versions, but what happened to the Beatles-records in the rest of the world is something to discover

^Very interesting reading, thanks, Kevin.

Argentina promoted the band by translating their name to Los Grillos on their album cover. ("The Crickets"?)
Los Grillos do means The Crickets, ... weird, ins't it? John got it in the end!  :D

I recently found out that both USA & Canada only released Rubber Soul with "I've Just Seen A Face" instead of "Drive My Car". Here in Australia, "Drive My Car" is the first track.

All my old cassettes tapes (some from late 80s and some from early 90s) have got different tracklist to the British or USAish originals 'till Sgt. Pepper's onwards (but in Abbey Road there's another surprise!). However, I dunno why ... (and curiously the first track is most of the times the original second one.)

The first tracks are the following:

Please Please Me: Misery (2nd one)

With The Guys: All My Loving (2nd one)

A Hard Day's Night (my first album): I Should Have Known Better (so this must be my first song: a prophecy?  ;D ) (2nd one)

Guys For Sale: No Reply (the same but I'm A Loser -2nd one- here opens the B-side)

Help!: I Need You (4th one)

Rubber Soul: Norwegian Wood (2nd one)

Revolver: Good Day Sunshine (8th one or original B-side open track)
 
Sgt. Pepper's, Magical Mystery Tour (LP), The Guys (aka White Album), Yellow Submarine and Let It Be have the international tracklist that all of you know, but ...

...Abbey Road open track is Here Comes The Sun instead of Come Together (B-side open track) being the rest of the album the same all of you've already got, so after George's Here Comes the Sun comes George's Something (those 6 minutes are a favourite part of mine).

I'd like to say that I like them in that way ... amazing tracklists in some cases!

Thanks for your time.  ;)

^ I just followed the link to the illustrations for the 1st time. Yeah, The Beatles with Monkees logo is outrageous. And the Dutch Help! with the advertising logo. Too much!
I really like the East German cover.

"One cassette tape version in the US had "Come Together" and "Here Comes The Sun" swapped so that Harrison's composition actually opens the album. All subsequent versions (including the CD) have restored the track listing to its original order."

from here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abbey_Road_%28album%29

That is the version I've got ...
