Six of the tracks on this LP ("From Me to You", "We Can Work It Out", "I Feel Fine", "Day Tripper", "Paperback Writer" and "I Want to Hold Your Hand") make their UK debut here as both album tracks (they were previously issued only as singles) and with stereo mixes (some done so especially for this compilation). "She Loves You" also made its debut on a long-playing record here, but it was a re-processed stereo mix, as the multi-track tape had vanished and remains missing to this day.

 

The front cover artwork was by David Christian, in a very '60s flower power style.

For the rear cover a colour photograph by Robert Whitaker was chosen. It was taken on 30 June, while the band was on tour in Japan. Before the first show in the Nippon Budokan Hall they started an oil and watercolors painting on a large paper.

 

This is one of very few Beatles albums released worldwide, original or compilation, that has not been issued on CD or digital format.
