The Beatles albums that Capitol put out in the U.S. from 1964-1966 will soon be available again. A 13-CD set, ‘The U.S. Albums,’ will be released on Jan. 21.

This new box brings together the records many American Beatles fans grew up with, including ‘Something New,’ ‘Beatles VI’ and ‘Yesterday and Today,’ which were assembled by Capitol and featured different artwork and sequences from the concurrent U.K. releases. ‘The Beatles Story,’ an “audio documentary” comprised of interviews and press conferences, will see its first-ever release on CD.

Starting with 1967’s ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,’ Beatles albums were the same worldwide, but until that point, the U.S. releases differed from what the group issued on Parlophone elsewhere. The soundtracks for ‘A Hard Day’s Night’ and ‘Help’ included selections from the instrumental score featured in the movies at the expense of some songs, which were subsequently issued on future U.S. albums.

Also included in ‘The U.S. Albums’ is the 1970 ‘Hey Jude’ LP, a U.S.-only compilation of singles and B-sides from all stages of their career that didn’t make it onto stateside releases, including the title track, ‘Can’t Buy Me Love,’ ‘Paperback Writer’ and ‘Revolution.’ There’s also a 64-page book with an essay and photos included in the new box set.

In the press release, Apple says that the CDs will feature both mono and stereo mixes, and all of the albums except for ‘The Beatles Story’ will be available for purchase individually for a limited time.
