Goofs At the end of the movie, it is stated that, after the events depicted in the film, all Beatles LPs included printed lyrics. This is not true: The LPs that featured lyrics were Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, Magical Mystery Tour (Capitol LP and Parlophone EP), and The Beatles (AKA The White Album). Yellow Submarine, Abbey Road and Let It Be didn't include them. Although Yellow Submarine was not a "true" Beatles LP (featuring just one side of Beatles' music, 2 songs already released and the other unreleased 4 recorded two years ago, we can say then the only two LPs that didn't feature the lyrics are Abbey Road and Let It Be. Some post-breakup releases included printed lyrics: 1973: 1962-1966 (Red Album), 1967-1970 (Blue Album), 1977: Love Songs. See more »
