We got the 45 when it first came out (I'm Down was a raver), but I didn't pick up the album until later, when I also got BEATLES VI, 3 whole years after they were released. I was doing some catching up, but I had seen the movie in the theater when it was first released. Once again, of course, this was the US version, which only had 6 Beatle originals (all on side A of the UK release) sprinkled through the George Martin soundtrack instrumentals that had to be suffered through, lol.
It's a rarity now though, and those instrumentals are nostalgiac to hear today; the James Bond intro kicks butt, and I think Paul is actually the one who played it; the goofy-ass Another Hard Day's Night sitar version, lol---gotta love it; and In The Tyrol got me into Wagner for a while. But what can be said for the Beatles originals except that they were destined to become classics--and are!
We got the Yesterday /Act Naturally 45 when it came out. I think they cut Act Naturally for the B-side so that folks wouldn't get any ideas that the Beatles were going soft, and George really tears it up not only by what he's playing on guitar but the guitar sound itself, very cutting edge for its day. It was a Buck Owens song, who was on top of the Country charts at the time, and was also a huge Beatle fan and very proud and humbled that they would cover his music. HA! Funny, because most country-western fans hated the Beatles back then.
You Like Me Too Much, Tell Me What You See, Dizzie Miss Lizzie were all on BEATLES VI. The first is a passable George tune, the 2nd has that great John/Paul harmony (sounds slightly like the Byrds, their favorite band at the time), and the last is John doing his usual rock'n'roll stock-in-trade, a great vocal. It's Only Love and I've Just Seen A Face were on the US RUBBER SOUL, so I'll save 'em for that.
