- 45 rpm record released on August 26, 1968 by Apple Records
- "The Beatles" / Apple #2276 (1968) - Apple Records black sleeve
- Side A - "Hey Jude" / - Side B - "Revolution"
** This was the first 45rpm single The Beatles released on their newly formed Apple Record label. "Hey Jude" was at the time the longest single
(7 minutes) ever to top the British charts. It also spent nine weeks at number one in the United States, the longest for any Beatles single. "Revolution" had two versions of the song recorded in 1968: a hard rock version, released as the B-side of the "Hey Jude" single, and a slower, bluesier version ("Revolution 1") for the album The Beatles (the "White Album").
