June 1966: The Beatles and the LP "Yesterday and Today"


Back in our school days, we had an exchange student from the UK.  He was from Manchester, as he always reminded us.  I guess that we thought that every Brit was from London or Liverpool.

I couldn't understand soccer, specially the "offside" rule.  He couldn't follow baseball, specially in comparison to cricket.  And he'd rather talk about rugby than the NFL!

We did find a lot of common ground on our mutual love for The Beatles.

We compared record collections and quickly learned that The Beatles released different LPs in the UK and US. 

I found that he had stuff like "Beatles for Sale" and a very different set of tracks on "Rubber Soul". 

Perhaps, "Yesterday and Today" was the best example of all of these differences. 

It was released here between "Rubber Soul" and "Revolver" and it included "Day Tripper" and "We can work it out", two songs that were never released in UK LP's.
