One of the BEST 60s comps ever...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pop Gear [DVD] (DVD)
I don't remember this being on at the cinema but I suppose, being filmed in wide screen, it must have been shown theatrically. I recognize the two Beatles tracks that bookend this program from a short called "The Beatles Come To Town". It is the only "live" footage here as the rest of the bands are strictly studio bound. I use the term "live" loosely.
Another reviewer has already told you of the songs presented here so let me just add that the colour and general picture quality is excellent. Looks nice and sharp even on a 46" HD TV. I suspect that, even though the wide screen ratio presented here is 2.35:1, it may well have been originally filmed in 1.85:1 as a couple of the drummers' heads in group shots seem slightly clipped at the top... but don't let that deter you from buying this dvd.
A very young Jimmy Saville introduces the acts and mugs his way through the proceedings. Great nostalgia.
