BEATLES: Just in Time for the Holidays

The Beatles‘ contribution to this year’s holiday gift giving guide is available — an expanded reissue of 1, the 15-year-old collection of the group’s number-one hits. Retitled 1+, it combines the original release’s 27 songs with a second disc of video clips.

Among the standouts:

  • “From Me to You” — filmed at the November 1963 Royal Variety Show in London.
  • “Eight Days a Week” – newly edited with footage from the August 1965 concert at Shea Stadium in New York.
  • “Yesterday” – taken from an Ed Sullivan Show performance in September 1965.
  • “Paperback Writer” – shot in West London by director Michael Lindsay-Hogg.
  • “Get Back” – from the legendary rooftop concert in January 1969.
  • “The Long and Winding Road” – from the movie Let It Be.

Paul and Ringo provide audio commentary and filmed introductions to go with four of the videos.

The 1+ deluxe edition has a 124-page illustrated hardcover book. The set will also be sold as a 27-song audio-only CD, with plans for vinyl in the near future.
