Product description

Product Description

The Beatles Blue Album gathered together some of the most influential, ground-breaking rock music ever recorded and placed it on one irresistible collection. Released at a time when compilation albums were less common, the Blue Album set the standard; it was a perfect record of the Beatles unmatched creativity and diversity, a showcase for their songwriting brilliance and peerless musicianship. This unique critical review of a landmark album brings together a host of musicians, industry figures and respected rock journalists to analyse the extraordinary music on the Blue Album, among them Chris Welch, Nick Tauber and Adam Clayson. Their penetrating insights are placed alongside highlights of superb Beatles performances of such songs as Strawberry Fields Forever, Lucy In tH eSky With Diamonds, I Am The Walrus, Hey Jude, Let It Be, Something, Revolution, Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band, When I'm Sixty Four, Hello Goodbye and All You Need Is Love, making this an indispensable addition to any DVD collection.

Format: DVD
This is best described as an opportunity wasted. With the wealth of Beatles material available from the period covered by "The Blue Album" it would be hard to imagine anyone being able to put a foot wrong. Sadly, with a skill that can only be described as awesome, that is exactly what the creators of this DVD have managed to achieve. There is a selection of mainly unknown talking heads evaluating the Beatles and their work. It is reasonable to guess that most of the critics missed the Beatles the first time around. None of them could claim to be close contemporaries to the Beatles, or provide relevant insight into the creation of the tracks or the mind set of the composers at the time. One critic (sorry, historian), in particular, appears like some country yokel (with a massive ego) claims, with his nose in the air, that many of the songs were not particularly good songs. I think the makers of the DVD would have done better by just providing the songs, with the film that may have been the contemporary accompanyment or showing a performance by the band. Instead we get interruptions of ANY of the tracks that have been included. Let the music speak for itself. Sadly, if you like or liked the Beatles music, leave this DVD on the shelf. You will only be frustrated by the cheap-looking video (oops, let me start again or the hand pulled close up-pull out shot). So sad!

An alright DVD although they only analise the music where videos are present so some of the good songs do get left out. It should be pointed out though that the inclusion of Two of Us in this DVD is incorrect as this was not included on the Blue Album.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy this dvd. 16 Jun. 2009

This DVD is terrible. The critics narration is over-dubbed on every video clip. There is not one complete music video on this DVD. DO NOT BUY THIS DVD. It pisses me off that I bought it. Buy other Beatles DVD's instead.
