“The Beatles Again (Hey Jude)” is a 1970 collection of non-album Beatles singles and B-sides, as well as “I Should Have Known Better” and “Can’t Buy Me Love”, two singles released by Capitol Records (catalogue number SW 385) whose only previous American album appearance had been on the A Hard Day’s Night soundtrack album which had been released by United Artists Records.
Originally, the album was to be named “The Beatles Again“. Shortly before the record was released, however, the title was changed to “Hey Jude“, in order to promote the inclusion of the top-selling song that led off side two. Unfortunately, the name change occurred after the labels were printed, and an untold number of copies of the album were sold with an Apple label sporting the title “The Beatles Again”.
Original Issue. Album Spine title says “Hey Jude“. The Label says “The Beatles Again”. Rare. LP. Apple SW 385 G***
