This CD contains both the stereo and mono versions of the American release. A second CD release of this album, which contains the seven songs in true mono was issued in 2014 individually and as part of the Beatles The U.S. Albums boxed set.

Three were already issued on the previously released Beatles VI: “You Like Me Too Much“, “Tell Me What You See“, and “Dizzy Miss Lizzy“. “I’ve Just Seen A Face” and “It’s Only Love” were placed on Rubber Soul with its follow-up album Yesterday and Today receiving the remaining two tracks: “Yesterday” and “Act Naturally

The American version of “Help!” reached the number one spot on the Billboard album charts for nine weeks starting on 11 September 1965. […]
