The Beatles Are Back!
All music fans can rejoice with this announcement: some of The Beatles greatest music videos are coming to Blu-ray!
Here is how the great British music magazine “Uncut” describes this incredible new release:
“The Beatles 1+ compiles 50 promotional films and videos. These ‘mini movies’ were recorded by the band after the stopped touring and gave fans around the world the chance to see The Beatles at work and play.”
Here is the promotional video:
Paul McCartney told “Uncut” that some of the promotional material was recorded purely by chance.
“We’ve got all visuals associated with the hits on the album, 1,” he tells us. “All the music videos, and where there isn’t a music video – they’ve made some up! Which is brilliant. They’ve found footage.”
“‘Hey, Bulldog’ is to die for, as my wife would say,” McCartney continues. “It’s great, because there happened to be a camera crew there filming The Beatles at EMI while we were doing ‘Lady Madonna’. They were going to film a little bit of that, but they stayed and we got onto ‘Hey, Bulldog’. It’s great, and it all fits with the record because they filmed the take we used.”
“Uncut” reports that this is essentially a restored and expanded update of The Beatles’ 1 compilation from 2000.
he 200-minute The Beatles 1+ includes the band’s 27 No 1 singles, with the restored videos, along with a second disc of 23 videos, including alternate versions, as well as rarely seen and newly restored films and videos; all include new audio mixes in deluxe CD/2DVD and CD/2Blu-ray packages. The original 27-track audio CD is also being made available with new stereo mixes.
They will be released on November 6!
McCartney and Ringo Starr have provided exclusive audio commentary and filmed introductions for all of the music videos as well!
