If you haven’t heard by now, a new version of the Beatles 1 collection is coming next month. Dubbed 1+, it features 27 #1 hits and films/videos/performances–fifty of them, in fact–to go along with them on DVD and Blu-ray.
When the Beatles stopped touring in 1966, they became one of the very first acts to adopt promotional films–what we’d later called music videos–to connect with audiences. Many of these films have never been seen before or at least for a very long time. Take a look at this clip for “A Day in the Life” from Sgt. Pepper. (Via Mashable)
