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

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.

In my opinion, Magical Mystery Tour is one of the very best Beatles albums. I actually like every single song on this album, yes even the most whimsical ones. But the movie stinks, you say? Well, don't watch it. Just listen to the music. With great songs like Fool on the hill, Strawberry fields forever, I am the walrus, Penny Lane and others you can't go wrong.

I would like to make a specific point about the stereo version of this album. Some people complain about the stereo sound picture, with drums sometimes coming from the far left and instruments changing place from one verse to another and so on. I think these people entirely miss the point. Today a stereo picture is drawn to give the sound a certain width, to make it sound as neat, pleasant and comfortable as possible. But in 1966-67, when pop groups started to take more interest in the recording procedure and stereo was still a pretty new thing, a stereo picture often had a different purpose. Back then, stereo was often more like a cool thing that was used for interesting and stunning effects. A bit like 3D glasses during the 1980's. If you watched a movie with 3D glasses you certainly weren't expecting the movie to look more pleasant and admirable. You just expected it to look... well, cool. This is how stereo was regarded during a short period in pop history. "Wow, it sounds like the drums are coming from somewhere else than the guitar and ooops they suddenly changed place, what will they think of next?"

Everything in history has at some point been something new and interesting. Magical Mystery Tour gives us a valuable look at how things sounded when stereo was something new and interesting. Sure, I wouldn't mind a new "proper" stereo remix of this album to go along with this one.

The first Beatles album I ever bought (as an 11 year old in 1977) , it was the cover initially that attracted me.

When I heard the songs for the first time I remember 'Fool on the Hill' and 'Your mother Should Know' (both Paul) instantly speaking to me, the retro-feel (back to 1964) of the latter positively mesmeric. 'I am the Walrus' was genius by John, and the middle eight particularly pertinent to the summer we're having.

And then, side two, 'Hello Goodbye' is as upbeat a song as you could find anywhere, followed by the ultra genius of 'Strawberry Fields Forever' and 'Penny Lane', easily the best two songs on any album sitting side by side (listen to them on Anthology Vol II as well - also reviewed).

The final song sums up the whole album: and I have always wondered why this album is often overlooked in favour of the even more brilliant 'Sergeant Pepper' or even 'Revolver' (more complete as albums).

The film ('MMT') is a little bit nutty-as-a-fruitcake but also worth seeing to complete the full audio-visual experience, although the songs do not match the album exactly.

If you do not have these songs on any of your other Beatles collections, get this album and you will understand what made an eleven year old learn all 216 released Beatles songs so he could play them on his guitar and buy about 40 Beatles albums as well as a number of singles.

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)

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
