GENERAL ALBUM INFORMATION
Although US matrix numbers appear on the discs and labels, copies of the UK master tapes were used. The UK tapes also had reversed channels (being copies of the US tapes), but EMI Australia received the correction telex from EMI UK in time to correct, which they did when mastering. Accordingly, the tracks on the Australian release are the 1976 George Martin remixed tracks, but with the reversed channels corrected.

From August 1981, EMI's budget imprint, Axis Records, marketed the original 2-LP set as 2 single-album releases, adding Volume 1 and Volume 2 sub-titles in the process.

First pressings of Rock 'n' Roll Music included a flyer promoting the Beatles' vinyl, compact cassette and 8-track cartridge catalogues (click images below for larger versions).
