Biography

"The story began in Harold Macmillan’s “never had it so good” ’50s Britain. It should be fiction: four teenagers with no more than eight O’Levels between them, running and biking and busing and busking all over Liverpool in search of new chords and old guitars and half-decent drum kit and any gig at all.

They were determined to amount to something ... Read more in Amazon's The Beatles Store

Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

The album feels even more like a collection of singles (instead of an actual movie soundtrack) than Help! or A Hard Day's Night, but maybe that's because every song sounds like it could have been a hit single--with the natural exception of the goofy/weird instrumental "Flying". Even George's "Blue Jay Way" paints a vivid sound-portrait in fascinating detail. And although the goofy TV movie may have been mostly Paul's baby, this album features the two 45 rpm masterpieces that sum up the quintessential best of Lennon and McCartney at this stage of their development: Paul's "Penny Lane" and John's "I Am the Walrus". --Jim Emerson

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Underrated 26 July 2006
Format:Audio CD
I can't believe people take the mick out of this because of the movie, its one of my favourite Beatle Records, and it should be because of the classic songs on the album like.

I'am the Walrus, Strawberry Fields Forever,Penny Lane and All You Need Is love.

Other great songs include. Fool on the Hill, Baby you're a Rich Man and The Magical Mystery Tour. The rest are just o.k, but the double a-side of Penny Lane/Strawberry Fields Forever is often cited as the greatest double a-side of all time, and the greatest single of all time, which is some compliment, this is one of the finest records ever, and shoudln't be taken for granted.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jam packed with classic Beatles recordings 21 Aug 2003
By Daniel Jolley HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
If it is even possible for a Beatles album to be somewhat underappreciated, Magical Mystery Tour is that album. Maybe it's the cover image of the Fab Four dressed in wholly ridiculous garb; that image is rather offsetting. As for the music, it's something of an odd mix of songs. The first six tracks come from the rather obscure television film Magical Mystery Tour, and the remaining five are made up of singles added to the pot in order to cook up enough material for an American album release. Thus, what you end up with is not a concept album such as the incredible Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band but rather a densely packed collection of huge hits complemented by several other very fine songs in their own right. Of the seven tracks, seven are bonafide Beatles classics: Magical Mystery Tour, The Fool On the Hill, I Am the Walrus, Hello Goodbye, Strawberry Fields Forever, Penny Lane, and All You Need Is Love. The last of these songs became a veritable theme song for the culture of love thriving at the time of this album's release in 1967. I Am the Walrus is unquestionably the strangest song the Beatles ever released, but John's unique delivery of the seemingly nonsense lyrics is inherently fascinating. I don't even need to expound upon the fascinating, psychedelic, and wholly unique Strawberry Fields Forever. Besides being two of the Beatles' most amazing songs, I Am the Walrus and Strawberry Fields Forever also hold an important place in the mythology of the Beatles, supposedly containing clues pointing to the "death" of Paul.
The four less familiar tracks are rather remarkable in themselves. Your Mother Should Know and Baby You're a Rich Man are fun and somewhat bouncy little tunes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Roll up for a mystery tour! 25 Nov 2012
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
This is a review for the 2012 vinyl edition. Please ignore the Amazon UK's bunching up of reviews.
First off, one benefit of this pressing is everything is in true stereo being rather than the awful duophonic fake stereo of the analogue US and UK versions on the songs Penny Lane, Baby, You're A Rich Man and All You Need Is Love that my very first copy had. Because this lp was in truth a American creation added later in the day to the World-wide catalogue, they have used a old style colourband Capitol logo for it. So cool!
The booklet is tucked in the left jacket pouch rather than stapled in the gate-fold ready to fall off and is printed in thicker paper.
Secondly Sean Magee cut this and he did an extremely good job of getting deep bass on it, the treble is very smooth, and the presence on the vocals almost fooled me into thinking this was analogue sourced, lacking the harshness you sometimes detect on cd. He left a good amount of space from the end of the final track to the edge by the label to minimize any end of side playback problems. I went from having the 1976 UK version with the last three tracks in fake stereo originally to the 1988 Capitol digitally mastered one that was a bit better.
I feel this is the best one yet I've had.It was dead quiet

3.0 out of 5 stars odds and ends 17 Jun 2014
Format:Audio CD
The actual MMT tracks (the first six) see the Beatles at their lowest ebb creatively, spaced out and knackered after Sergeant Pepper, and inclined to let any old thing pass - especially Harrison, hacked off with the group and at being under contract to Northern Songs. His Blue Jay Way is a poor effort, a boring song about being bored. Most of the others are also below par; I Am The Walrus is a classic, I guess, but not a favourite of mine. The larky 'performance' (ie mime) in the film belies the fact that nobody else - except perhaps Nirvana - has been anything like this caustic about their own audience.

Of the other tracks, Penny Lane and Strawberry Fields belong to the Sgt Pepper sessions; the others are okay post-Pepper singles, pleasant enough but not their best work. Not until the following year would they get off the acid and begin to raise their standards again - though tensions would rise along with them.

As a whole, it can't be compared to the classic Beatles albums because it simply isn't an album; it's an EP, mediocre by their standards, with some other oddments stuck on. Personally I think the film is, if anything, probably better than the music and more influential than people realise - eg I'm pretty sure the young Pythons watched it with interest.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'MANY GREAT, GREAT, MEMORIES OF THE 'FAB-FOUR' 7 Mar 2014
By rbmusicman TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
I Remember the 'Magical Mystery' short film being presented on TV way back
when, the films they made were never intended to be anything but fun.
This 'CD' has the numbers from the TV film along with some memorable favourites
that we all remember.
The songs from the film include numbers such as --'The Magical Mystery Tour'
(of course) ...'The Fool On The Hill' (love that one).....'Your Mother Should Know'
and the cleverly written... 'I Am A Walrus' among the memorable songs from the
film, backed up by hits such as ...'Hello Goodbye' and 'Penny Lane' and 'All
you need is Love' along with perhaps one of my all time 'Beatles' favourites
'Strawberry Fields Forever'
All in all, if you're still collecting 'Beatle' albums, don't miss this 'Gem'
(am listening to the album as I write)
This is music that has remained popular for around 50 years and will almost
certainly still be played 50 years from now (maybe not by myself)
