About Help!

  • Year Released: 1965

Help! is a 1965 album by The George Martin Orchestra, the second of a series of albums by Martin featuring instrumental arrangements of Beatle songs. This release focused on songs from their album Help!. Unlike his other albums, the UK issue is not on Martin's Parlophone label, but on EMI's sister Columbia Graphophone's Studio 2 Stereo series label. Half of the North American version of The Beatles' Help! featured performances from The George Martin Orchestra, composed by Ken Thorne. All songs by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, except where noted. At the end of Pink Floyd's 1973 album The Dark Side of the Moon, on the track "Eclipse", a section of the orchestral version of "Ticket to Ride" can very faintly be heard beneath the closing heart-beat sound effect. It is believed to be from this album. Before digital recording, recording tapes were wiped and re-used. It is possible that the tape used to record the heart-beat sound effect was not properly wiped and formerly had this track on it, or it was a deliberate inclusion by the band.
