"NO ONE'S GONNA CHANGE OUR WORLD"
GRAMOPHONE / REGAL STARLINE, SRS 5013, STEREO
(ACTUAL IMAGES)THIS IS THE ORIGINAL BRITISH FIRST PRESSING OF the charity album "NO ONE'S GONNA CHANGE OUR WORLD", released in the UK in December 1969, with ROYALTIES DONATED to benefit the World Wildlife Fund. The compilation was put together by comedian Spike Milligan and features liner notes by Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. The album is largely known by fans of The Beatles as the very first release and early mix of the song "Across the Universe" – the title of the album comes from a line in this song, "Nothing's gonna change my world".
During the BEATLES February 1968 recording sessions, Spike Milligan dropped into the studio and, UPON 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 to the beginning and end. The original (mono) mix from February 1968 is 3:37 minutes in length. After the effects were added, the track was sped up so that even with 20 seconds of effects, it is only 3:49. Speeding up the recording also raised the key to E-flat. By October 1969, it was decided that the song needed to be remixed into stereo. This was done by Geoff Emerick immediately prior to the banding of the album. "Across the Universe" was first released in this version on the Regal Starline SRS 5013 album, "No One's Gonna Change Our World" in December 1969. This version was issued on three Beatle compilation albums, the British version of "Rarities", the different American version of "Rarities" and the second disc of the two-CD "Past Masters" album.
