JOHN EMMS REVIEWS-BEATLES MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR-DVD-FUN, CHARMING AND REVEALING

 

This is a fun and revealing part of Beatles history.

Most of us bought the album and were knocked out with the songs such as the title track and I Am A Walrus without ever seeing the movie.

Now you have your chance.

In fact my 11 year old grandson wants to see The Beatles Magcial Mystery Tour movie after viewing the trailer.

The extra sections of the DVD is where you get “the goods”

Paul McCartney and especially  Ringo Starr offer glimpes into their own feelings about the movie and how and why the movie was shot.

Most importantly this is Beatles history.

The 5.1 soundtrack for Your Mother Should Know, Blue Jay Way and The
Fool on the Hill with new edits is impressive.

I turned it up loud and it filled the room. You can purchase this DVD for the sound alone

It’s not the multi-camera big budget work on the Help and Hard Days Nights movies.

It’s the Beatles small scale.  It’s a 53 minute experimental film that owes to the times (1967)

There is a deluxe blu-ray version available
