The expanded, video-laden Beatles 1 collection isn’t scheduled to arrive until November 6, but the group’s camp has already issued this clip of the band performing “Revolution” for a promo video in 1968.
As we previously reported, the Beatles 1 reissue—a collection of their biggest hits from 1962’s “Love Me Do” through 1970’s “The Long and Winding Road”—will add videos to go along with the existing track listing. All of the videos have been restored, and many of them are seeing official release for the first time. The audio tracks have also been remastered, with new stereo mixes alongside mixes in 5.1 Dolby Digital and DTS HD surround audio. For true fans and completists, the set is also being further expanded with a deluxe package, titled The Beatles 1+.
This “Revolution” clip has never been officially released. It was directed by Michael Lindsay-Hogg—who also shot the group’s Let It Be film—and shot at Twickenham Film Studios on September 4, 1968, shortly after the single was released as the B-side to “Hey Jude.”
