Here’s something Beatle geeks have been waiting for — a compilation of The Beatles’ promo films and TV appearances. Included will be the 1966 film for “Paperback Writer” (above), shot at London’s Chiswick House, one of the flat-out coolest two-and-a-half minutes of film I’ve ever seen. (The fact that “Paperback Writer” is my all-time favorite song makes me a bit biased.)
The Beatles were at the top of their game in 1966. Come to think of it, everyone was: Bob Dylan, The Beach Boys, The Byrds, The Kinks, The Rolling Stones, etc.
Its release date is November 6 for both DVD and Blu-ray, with a deluxe edition available for good measure.
