    30 some years ago I first experienced most of the videos from this long-awaited Beatles BluRay on a washed out bootleg VHS tape. Although it was cool to see this footage back then, I held out hope that one day these classic films would see an official release in the quality they deserve. Better late than never, that day has finally arrived. I bought the "1+" version which includes two BluRay video discs. What a complete thrill from start to finish. To see something like the Strawberry Fields video transferred from what is purported to be a 35mm film source is simply amazing. I first saw Strawberry Fields in the 1982 Compleat Beatles film, and based on what is seen in the movie I presumed the video quality was limited due to the original source. The Beatles Anthology featured nicely improved video quality, but nothing compares to this 1+ BluRay. Penny Lane appeared in the Compleat Beatles from a second-rate B&W videotape; here we have a high resolution transfer from the original color film. It's impossible to imagine Penny Lane existed in such fantastic quality. And those are just two examples. Until now, none of these videos have looked so good. Best of all, the restoration process was done with close attention to detail, so these films don't suffer the same sort of digital noise reduction and its undesirable side effects as seen on, for instance, the Magical Mystery Tour BluRay. The surround mixes are equally well done. They're mixed to be true to the original records but the soundstage has more depth, width and height. As such, while there may be a few minor instances when you don't hear something in quite the same way as the old records, you're now hearing so much more of what always existed in the original tracks. Historically there's a trade off when bands go back to re-work their classic recordings, which is why I usually don't like the idea. Thankfully there's little to no compromise between the new and old here. The new mixes simply offer more of what we already know and love. The vocals on Lady Madonna's "see how they run" are almost like you're in the same room at Abbey Road while The Fab Four perform. Let it Be has a more organic feel than the original record during the verses but the orchestrations on the choruses and at the end of the song are deeper and more lush sounding. The low end - especially Paul's bass - has never had this kind of thump or presence, yet it doesn't adversely affect the other instruments. Overall the audio is slightly hotter than I would prefer, and there is a hint of digital processing to the sound, but none of this bothered me in the annoying way most sterile overbaked recordings sound today. Bottom line - no Beatles fan should be without this release. And while you could save some cash and buy the regular "1" edition (which only includes one BluRay or DVD), I must recommend the expanded "1+" version for all the good stuff on the second disc. You won't get Strawberry Fields if you don't get "1+". Nuff said. Now let's see Apple release a BluRay collection of Beatles concert films. The Shea Stadium excerpts seen in the Eight Days a Week video on 1+ is beyond comparison. I hope I don't have to wait another 30 years to see the full Shea concert film looking so good.

    What Beatles fanatics have wanted for years!

    This collection includes a remixed edition of the Beatles 1 collection plus two Blu-ray discs of music videos (or promos, or video clips, whatever you may call them). Some of the videos are live performances and some are television appearances where the band mimes to their record, but the most intriguing clips are the ones which were filmed and edited in the manner which we became accustomed to after the launch of MTV. Highlights include "Paperback Writer," "Rain," "Strawberry Fields Forever" and "Hello Goodbye," which are all scanned in HD from film elements. It is those specially created film clips that Beatles fans have long wished to see officially released. Not all the videos ever released by the group are included, but the majority are. Many of the music videos included in this collection are also remixed for 5.1 surround sound. The effect is not life-changing, but it is a nice way to get a different aural perspective on the Beatles. The collection also includes a sprinkling of commentaries from Paul McCartney and "introductions" by Ringo Starr. Unfortunately, the pair does not come off the most coherent or eloquent in these bonus features, but at least they took some time out to add their recollections to this release. Note that some of the material on this collection is sourced from PAL or NTSC videotape and upconverted to 1080i or 1080p. This is effective in some cases, but in others, the quality suffers a bit. I am pleased that any material that originated in a 4:3 aspect ratio is maintained in its original format. I would have preferred they also did not upconvert and deinterlace the sources, but the average viewer probably will never think about those issues.

    I've been waiting since my family got their first Betamax back in the 70's for there to be a release of all the Beatle's promo videos. They teased with Anthology but made us wait another 15 years before releasing the entire set. Was it worth it? Well, yes! The remastering of the video is stunning; rich colors, deep blacks, free of artifacts. Marrying a newly compiled 5.1 audio soundtrack created by Giles Martin solidifies the presentation. Oddly, the audio-only disc is NOT 5.1, but nowadays its easy enough to create one. This set is becoming increasingly difficult to find. The non-BluRay and single DVD packages are still out there, but the deluxe dual DVD + CD in BluRay has become increasingly rare. Nice to find it at Best Buy for its normal retail price. Grab it now if you don't have it.

    Excellent Blu Ray set for the Beatle maniac

    I bought this strictly for the footage on the Blu Ray discs as I already had the CD from when it was first issued. Putting aside some rather silly anime that covers a small number of songs the footage is excellent, new in some respect and high quality. For example, we see what at first appears to be an uncut clip of Hey Jude but turns out to be a first take, from a different angle and with some interesting twists that differ from the clip on Anthology. The same is true of several other songs and makes the whole thing pretty interesting. It is also good that all of the video is so accessible; you don't need to sit through an hour of interviews or fast forward to find a performance. Highly recommended.

    The Best Beatles Ever

    I am not the biggest Beatles fan but I wanted this and I got it. YOU SHOULD OWN IT TOO! If nothing else the look and emotions on John Lennon's face in the first few videos is amazing. He is so happy. He is the leader He is the charm. I had to watch those again. By Penny Lane he's different and no so cheerful, but the videos and music are still great and they LOOK SPECTACULAR on this 2 Blu-ray/1 CD set. The digibook format provides a must have book with background on EVERY video on both discs. Get This Now!

    Stunning Improvement in Beatles Audio and Video

    It's so nice to have the best possible quality of this historic collection of Beatles history. Sound and video restoration is very much improved and enjoyable as a result. A must for even the casual Beatles fan! My only complaint is the apparent difference between identifying the BluRay from the DVD version is a small logo on the spine of the box. I wanted the BluRay and bought the DVD in error. No problem returning one for the other. Best Buy customer service reps were extremely helpful and understanding.

    The big set I bought is probably mostly for hardcore Beatles aficionados, like myself, But overall it doesn't disappoint - the sound of the remixed songs is amazing, the look of the remastered and restored videos is stellar... my only gripe (and this is a minor one) are the very scant and lackadaisical commentaries from Paul and Ringo. Why even bother, for only three videos, and they really don't sound interested? Regardless, if you're a Beatles fan, GET THIS SET. You will be amazed!

    I was looking to get this collection of Beatle's music for a long time and when I decided to pick it up I had a hard time finding one in a local store. While on a trip to Atlanta I found one in a Best Buy store there. I'm so glad I did. The sound is incredible. The stereo versions are clean and full and the surround sound versions come in Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS Master Audio and sound great. If you are a Beatles fan this is must have.
