COMMENTS During the February 1968 recording sessions, Spike Milligan dropped into the studio and on hearing the song suggested the track would be ideal for release on a charity album he was organizing for the World Wildlife Fund. At some point in 1968 the Beatles agreed to this proposal. In January 1969 the best mono mix was remixed for the charity album.
In keeping with the 'wildlife' theme of the album, sound effects of birds were added at the beginning and end of the track. The original (mono) mix from February 1968 is 3:37.
After the effects were added the track was sped up; so that even with 20 seconds of effects the track is only 3:49. By October 1969 it was decided the track needed to be remixed into stereo.
This was done by for the first time by George Martin immediately prior to the banding of the album.
The song was first released in this version on the Regal Starline SRS 5013 album No One's Gonna Change Our World, in December 1969.
It features liner notes by Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. The album is largely known by fans of The Beatles as the first release of the song "Across the Universe" – the title of the album comes from a line in this song, "Nothing's gonna change my world". It was also the first release of the Hollies song "Wings", one of the last songs they did with Graham Nash in early 1968.

This version was issued on three Beatle compilation albums, the British version of Rarities.

mfp (Music For Pleasure):
Label started in 1965 as a joint venture between Hamlyn and EMI Records, selling low cost re-issues and also some original material. EMI provided the music and Hamlyn the publishing. The logo around this time has "Paul Hamlyn" and "EMI Records" circling the "mfp" logo.
MFP had offices in various cities including Amsterdam, Brussels, Johannesburg, Köln, London, Sydney, Paris and Stockholm.
At some point in the early seventies Hamlyn pulled out and EMI took control. MFP remained an independent company in Belgium. Also at this time a parallel label, Sounds Superb, was created.
MFP carried on throughout the '70s, but at the start of the '80s ran into trouble. This was due to changes in technology and major label rationalisations. MFP ended up as little more than a worldwide distribution network.
From the 3rd April 2006 MFP was revived under the control of EMI Gold.

COMMENTS The Songs Lennon and McCartney Gave Away was a conceptual compilation album containing the original artist recordings of songs composed by John Lennon and Paul McCartney in the 1960s that they had elected not to release as Beatles songs. The album was released in the UK in 1979.
With the exception of "I'm the Greatest", a Ringo Starr album track written for him by John Lennon in 1973, all songs were recorded and released as singles during the active Beatles years in the 1960s.

Front laminated sleeve printed by Garrod & Lofthouse Ltd (mark 7904 TM on the back). On the front side are all 11 artists who performed Beatles songs on this album. On the backside appeared a specification of these images.
McCartney's profile in the artwork for the front cover reused a portion of the illustration from the Beatles' album Revolver, and Lennon's profile is a drawing that duplicated the back-cover photograph from his album Imagine.
