The american edition of this one has been remixed (different stereo picture) by George Martin, while the UK edition kept the old mixes. The reasoning behind releasing this LP is supposed to be accusations from fans of The Rolling Stones that the Beatles was just a pop group and that they weren't capable of playing rock'n'roll. The answer was to compile an album full of the raunchiest material from the old Beatles LP's.

In 1980 this double LP from 1976 was split up into two single LP's, named vol.1 and vol.2. The British edition of these new LP's used the american (remixed in 1976 by George Martin) master.

 

The 1980 edition was on the MFP (Music for pleasure) budget label.
