EMI/APPLE Corps present: MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR 2012
We don’t have to explain what the movie’s all about, do we?
And we all know the history of Paul McCartney original idea, don’t we?
Well here is the new and beautiful restored MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR! What a Thrill!
With lots of special features, like a complete Director’s Commentary by Sir Paul himself, explaining a couple of nice details in the movie.
Then there’s the “Making Of”, a 19 min. documentary with lots of rare footage, also an 11 min. introduction of the rest of the cast and a couple of alternate videos of Your Mother Should Know, Blue Jay Way, Fool On The hill and Hello Goodbye.
2 ‘Deleted scenes’, ‘Nat’s Dream’ and a song by Ivor Cutler, both some 2 minutes.
And a small documentary about Mulberry Bush, with a cameo of Steve Winwood!
So all together you’ll get a 55 minute movie (yes that’s how long the MMT movie takes) and another 50-55 min. Special Features.
Of course Apple took care of a various amount of release formats. Here’the most luxury one!
And we all know the history of Paul McCartney's original idea, don’t we?
Well now we can present to you the new and beautiful restored
A Thrill Of A Lifetime!

BEATLES INTERNATIONAL sells original MOUTH ORGAN
In coorporation with the owner of shop BEATLES INTERNATIONAL is allowed to sell the original Hohner 'stolen one' mouth organ 'John Lennon signature edition' from the original music shop Bergmann in Arnhem, The Netherlands, where The Beatles stopped on their way to Hamburg in August 1960. Of course all Beatles fans know this story. But for you who don't, here it is:
Manager Allan Williams had signed a contract for a series of performances at the Indra Club in Hamburg (Germany) on the 10th of August 1960, and on the 15th The Beatles embarked on their journey to the continent by car. They arrived at Hoek van Holland (the Netherlands) on the 16th, went on their way but, according to driver Allan Williams, got lost. That's why they followed the old road to Arnhem and visited the War Cemetery at Oosterbeek (near Arnhem) where they made this photo in front of the Memorial Plaque (“Their Name Liveth For Evermore”), erected for the allied soldiers who fell during Operation Market Garden in WWII. In a couple of years this inscription would also apply to the Beatles…
On the photo we can see from left to right: Allan Williams, his wife Beryl, Lord Woodbine (seated), Stuart Sutcliffe, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Pete Best. John Lennon is missing on this photo because he was strolling around and didn't want to be on a photograph, taken on a cemetery.
After visiting the cemetery, they drove into the nearby town of Arnhem to have lunch, but discovered the Bergmann music shop (established in 1914) at 19 Koningstraat. At that time Bergmann sold records, scores and instruments. Elly Witten (now 74), who owned the shop from 1975 onwards, was at that time engaged as a member of staff, and she still remembers that day. “My boss asked me to keep an eye on these English speaking lads”.
John, Pete Best (not yet Ringo), Paul, George and bass-guitarist Stuart Sutcliffe strolled through the shop. Within minutes the cookie box was emptied, and on their way out John grabbed the opportunity and seized an instrument.
“One harmonica was missing,” Elly recalls. “A Hohner Marine Band, to be precise”. Story is that two years later this harmonica was used on their hit “Love Me Do”.
“Our cleaning lady ran after them, but in vain…”. In 1977 manager Alan Williams wrote in his book “The Man Who Gave The Beatles Away” about the theft of this harmonica and he confirmed that John Lennon was the culprit. In shock he told the boys to run to the car and take off before they'd be arrested.
The next day, The Beatles gave their first performance in the Indra Club, owned by Bruno Koschmider. They were to stay in Hamburg for two months. The Indra Club was a striptease night club, transformed into a beat club. Most visitors did not appreciate this transformation, and on the 3rd of October the police closed it down. Then The Beatles moved to the Kaiserkeller at 36 Grosse Freiheitstrasse (also owned by Koschmider). There they performed some four and a half hours each night earning about 109 Euros a week each. The rest is world history.
“Beatle-fans from all over the world came to our shop to kiss the holy ground on which the Fabulous Four had walked, and over the years I got sick of repeating this story over and over…” Nowadays, her daughter Marieke owns the shop, and they primarily sell CD’s, DVD’s, Blu-ray’s and scores.
