Dozens of Beatles Videos to Accompany ‘1’ Reissues

Available on DVD and Blu-ray, the most deluxe edition will contain 50 clips and a book


The Beatles' '1' and '1+' reissue will contain dozens of music videos from throughout the group's career

A new version of the Beatles 1 compilation will update the 2000 release to include music videos and the group’s “mini movies” from throughout its career on DVD or Blu-ray. The updated edition will be available in two configurations: The Beatles1, with one bonus disc of video, and the deluxe 1+, which contains a 124-page book and two discs of material, including many previously unreleased videos. The videos will also come out as stand-alone DVD and Blu-ray editions. All will be available on November 6th.

The main release, with one CD and one video disc, pairs the group’s 27 Number One singles with clips for each song, containing music mixed in 5.1 Dolby Digital and DTS HD surround. The deluxe 1+ adds 23 videos, including alternate versions of the clips. The CDs for each contain new stereo mixes, and a double-LP, 180-gram vinyl edition is in the works.

“These videos and films are spectacular reminders of the era we lived in,” Paul McCartney, who contributed commentary as extras to the videos, said in a statement. “They also rock!”

“I think it’s really interesting to see the videos we made, some of them incredible and some of them really incredible,” Ringo Starr, who filmed introductions to some videos as extras, said. “How else would we have got to sit on a horse?”

The videos cull from promo films, TV appearances and other performances. A team of 18 technicians reportedly spent months cleaning each frame of film and digitally enhancing the color and quality of each of the clips. They then scanned them in high-def 4K and restored the audio from the original analogue tapes at Abbey Road Studios. Music journalist Mark Ellen wrote an appreciation of the films for the book available in 1+, while music historian Richard Havers contributed track and video annotation.

Many of the films in the collection were not used in the Beatles’ Anthology release and those that were only appeared in excerpt or in alternate edits. Jeff Lynne, who produced the Anthology tracks “Free as a Bird” and “Real Love” – the videos for which are on 1+ – remixed the tracks for this release.
