“MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR is an album by the English rock band the Beatles. The Capitol Records LP release in the US occurred on 27 November, 1967, and featured eleven tracks through the addition of songs from the band's 1967 singles. Despite widespread media criticism of the MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR film, the soundtrack was a critical and commercial success and a number one Grammy-nominated album in the US. In the face of continued public demand, EMI officially released the Capitol LP version of MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR in the UK in November 1976, although, notwithstanding the availability of the true-stereo mixes, it used the Capitol masters with ‘fake’ stereo.”
