One of the biggest album releases of the millennium so far was the Beatles’ 1 collection, a compilation of the band’s #1 hits, which, according to industry figures, has sold an astonishing 31 million copies since it was first released in November 2000. Yes, 31 million.
There have been several updates to the collection since then thanks to a couple of reissues, but nothing has ambitious as 1+, which mates all those songs with a DVD featuring lost films from the vaults. According to Apple Corps, this film of the band performing the fast version of “Revolution” (the one found on the b-side of “Hey Jude” in 1968) recorded in a Twickenham studio on September 4, 1968, is one of those unseen films.
Dammit, I’m sure we’ve seen this one before. Or have we?
