EXCLUSIVE: Deconstructing The Beatles' MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR - Feature Film
In 1967, The Beatles embarked on an ambitious project: writing and directing a one-hour film, Magical Mystery Tour. The film itself was widely panned at the time, a rare critical rebuke for the band. However, the music that accompanied the film is some of The Beatles' psychedelic best.
In Deconstructing The Beatles' Magical Mystery Tour, Scott Freiman delves into the creative process behind many of the tracks recorded by the Beatles in late 1966 and 1967 that make up the album. Learn how two completely separate versions of “Strawberry Fields Forever” were seamlessly combined for the final song. Uncover the secret song tributes that George Martin placed in “All You Need Is Love” (and how they got him into trouble). Witness the songwriting and recording techniques behind “A Fool On The Hill,” “Penny Lane,” and “Blue Jay Way.” And be amazed at the work that went into creating the Beatles’ psychedelic masterpiece, “I Am The Walrus.”
No matter how much you know about this legendary music, you’ll gain a new appreciation for the Beatles after watching Deconstructing The Beatles’ Magical Mystery Tour.
