Hey Jude (The Album)

Hey Jude (The LP) was released February 36, 1970


Allen Klein convinced them to put this out in to raise a bit of money for the dwindling Apple empire (and to bump up his fat bank account). They briefly considered calling it The Beatles Again, but changed the name at the last minute. It looks a little bit like a ‘Greatest Hits’ package, but a quick gander at the tracks reveals that that’s not the case. It’s just a collection of songs that had never been released on a Capitol LP.

Although it sold by the bucket-load, it never reached the top-spot – it got stuck at number two behind Simon & Garfunkel’s Bridge Over Troubled Water. It then fell further behind when Paul released his debut LP.
