Watch the New ‘Beatles 1′ Video for ‘Revolution’
The expanded Beatles 1 isn't scheduled to arrive until Nov. 6, but our first look at the collection's reams of newly unearthed footage is already here: a previously unreleased clip of the band performing "Revolution."
As previously reported, the Beatles 1 reissue adds a hefty sum of videos to the existing track listing, all of them painstakingly restored and many of them seeing official release for the first time. The audio tracks have also been overhauled, with new stereo mixes of the album arriving alongside mixes in 5.1 Dolby Digital and DTS HD surround audio. For hardcore fans and completists, the set is also being further expanded with a deluxe package, titled The Beatles 1+.
Originally released on Nov. 13, 2000, Beatles 1 collected 27 of the band's biggest hits, arranged chronologically from 1962's "Love Me Do" through 1970's "The Long and Winding Road." While there's never been any shortage of Beatles compilations, and the band had issued career-spanning sets before, Beatles 1 struck a chord with multiple generations of listeners — some looking to start their library, some lured in by the promise of newly remastered sound — and topped the charts in dozens of countries on its way to becoming the top-selling album of the decade in the U.S.
Like much of the promotional footage appended to the new Beatles 1, this "Revolution" clip has never been officially released. Directed by Michael Lindsay-Hogg and shot at Twickenham Film Studios on Sept. 4, 1968, shortly after the single was released as the B-side to "Hey Jude." Check it out above.
