The Beatles – “1” – CD, DVD, Blu-ray; CD/DVD Set, CD/Blu-ray Set; 2DVD/1CD Set, 2BD/1CD Set – Apple/Capitol/Universal 06-11-2015

A Natale era quasi inevitabile (potremmo togliere il quasi) che uscisse un “nuovo” prodotto dedicato ai Beatles e il candidato per la pubblicazione è stato l’antologia “1” fino ad ora disponibile solo in versione CD. Quindi è sembrato giusto immetterne sul mercato altre 6, dicasi sei, edizioni. Il contenuto è quello classico che conosciamo, ma arricchito dai video delle canzoni, peraltro apparsi nella The Beatles Anthology, che però era un cofanetto di 5 DVD che raccontava tutta la storia dei Beatles, filmati promozionali inclusi. Comunque, questi i brani:

Bonus DVD 1 Twist & Shout 2 Baby It’s You 3 Words Of Love 4 Please Please Me 5 I Feel Fine 6 Day Tripper 7 Day Tripper 8 We Can Work It Out 9 Paperback Writer 10 Rain 11 Rain 12 Strawberry Fields Forever 13 Within You Without You/Tomorrow Never Knows 14 A Day In The Life 15 Hello, Goodbye 16 Hello, Goodbye 17 Hey Bulldog 18 Hey Jude 19 Revolution 20 Get Back 21 Don’t Let Me Down 22 Free As A Bird 23 Real Love

CD & DVD 1 Love Me Do 2 From Me To You 3 She Loves You 4 I Want To Hold Your Hand 5 Can’t Buy Me Love 6 A Hard Day’s Night 7 I Feel Fine 8 We Can Work It Out 9 Ticket To Ride 10 Help! 11 Yesterday 12 Day Tripper 13 We Can Work It Out 14 Paperback Writer 15 Yellow Submarine 16 Eleanor Rigby 17 Penny Lane 18 All You Need Is Love 19 Hello, Goodbye 20 Lady Madonna 21 Hey Jude 22 Get Back 23 The Ballad of John and Yoko 24 Something 25 Come Together 26 Let It Be 27 The Long and Winding Road

Sopra ho inserito un po’ di immagini relative alle varie edizioni, copertine e formati di alcune delle uscite. Non ho ancora visto tutti i prezzi, ma soprattutto le confezioni multiple, per usare un eufemismo, non sono particolarmente economiche, ma giustamente escono nel periodo che ci porta verso le feste natalizie e comunque i fans saranno disponibili all’immancabile esborso.

Questo il promo, per DVD e Blu-Ray.

E questo è il secondo, per il lavoro di restauro che è stato fatto.

Un pezzo di Strawberry Fields Forever restaurato.

Penny Lane.

Quindi ricapitolando. Versione singolo CD, con i 27 brani della antologia originale. Versione doppia (con Blu-ray o DVD aggiunto), aggiunti i video delle 27 canzoni. Versioni Deluxe triple contengono ulteriori 23 brani video (dove leggete bonus DVD per la lista sopra, ma vale anche per l’extra Blu-Ray). E infine, qui sotto, cosa è stato fatto, brano per brano , nei vari video restaurati:
