Out … in (The Beatles on “Top of the Pops” – 1968)

On Aug. 26, 1968, Apple Corps released five single records, including The Beatles’ “Hey Jude.”
It was the first Beatles’ single to bear the Apple design and would become their biggest hit. The song wouldn’t enter the US charts until September.
The B-side for “Hey Jude,” of course, was “Revolution” and featured Nicky Hopkins on piano.
Here’s a performance from BBC1’s “Top of the Pops.” The Beatles’ sang the vocals live to a pre-recorded instrumental track (so we get some of the vocal embellishments from the White Album’s version of the song as well).
