A completely different spin on The Beatles Multi-Track Meltdown.

Episode #70 – Magical Mystery Tour 50th Anniversary  Download 

There has been quite a bit of hype about the 50th anniversary of the release of the Beatles Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. But that wasn’t the only important project the group worked on in 1967. While the Magical Mystery Tour film was initially panned by critics and fans alike, the music created for the film, as well as the other tracks from ’67 that filled out the original American LP release, stands alongside Pepper as a companion to the much lauded album and a snapshot of the Beatles’ psychedelic leanings that year.
