|Norman "Hurricane" Smith||Interviewee|
Posted October 1, 2010
The Beatles were and are the most important popular music band of the 20th Century end of story. RARE AND UNSEEN is a worthy contribution to their legacy. Who says so? Tony Barrow- the man who guided John, Paul, George and Ringo through the sixties and who wrote the sleeve notes- and he should know. Certainly there are elements in here that you won't see on Anthology- and for any self-respecting Beatles' fan this really has to be in the collection. After all, without it you won't have the earliest footage known, and you won't get to hear how Prime Minister Blair's father-in-law bought drugs with Lennon! Get past the tv show skew of this DVD and examine what it actually has in it: The earliest footage of the band, never released in this digitally enhanced form the only footage left of them in Scotland the only home movie of them shot by the band in Jersey (in colour) colour film on stage in Paris. Then throw in some of the best interviews ever- with the likes of Phil Collins, Steve Harley and Len Goodman plus stalwarts like Tony Barrow and Tony Branwell, plus Norman Smith, and you have an entertaining 90 minutes. For real Beatles' fans this is as perfect as it gets.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
