Essential Beatles DVD


Recommended Posts

I just finished watching the Beatles Anthology on DVD. It was good. LOTS of footage. Good interviews.

 

Are there any other DVDs that would be considered essential for Beatles fans?

 

I would like to see more studio footage and outtakes. Preferably during the later, drug induced period of their careers. :D

Even though it is a film about rather than with The Beatles, I suggest that you check out "Backbeat".

 

"A Hard Days Night" is available on dvd with some good bonus material.

 

There's also a new DVD about The Beatles first US tour available.

 

Then, of course, there are plenty of really good books...and more than a few that aren't very good

I have the Anthology on VHS. Does the DVD have a lot more material on it? Enough to have me invest in "The Beatles Anthology" once again?

 

And I thought "Backbeat" was pretty good, too.

I started out with NOTHING...and I still have most of it left!

I waited for the DVD version to come out and it does have additional material including the then remaining 3 members jamming on acoustic guitars and drums, them playing around with levels/altnerate tracks of the master of a couple tunes, and some in depth stuff regarding the videos. As a fanatic, I thought it was definitely worth the $50 at Best Buy - plus, random access is a great thing...
