Like A Hard Day’s Night, Help! contained the songs from the film on side one of the album, with the other side devoted to other new recordings, including two covers. Help! also marked the return of George Harrison as a songwriter; George contributed one song to each side of the album. The striking front cover features The Beatles making semaphore signals â€“ but these do not spell Help! The album went immediately to No 1 in the British charts, remaining there for a total of nine of its 37 weeks in the Top 20. Yet again in the US things were different. Another soundtrack album was released, which contained all the songs from Side One of the UK album, plus six instrumental pieces scored by Ken Thorne. The remaining non-film tracks were scattered over three different albums in the US.
