That deserves a repeat airing, I think. I love the way George breaks into spontaneous harmony.

Any of the George (Harrison and Martin) and Ringo interviews were the best.  Paul seemed to want to control the scenes when they were all together.

 

As far as the differences, I seem to recall the VHS version having "Free As A Bird" & "Real Love".  The DVD set I have only has "Free As A Bird" on it.  What gives?

I ordered the Director's Cut a few weeks ago, and next weekend I'm having a long holiday Anthology marathon.  Ten DVDs!  Very excited about that.  I'll have to post a review here when it's all said and done.

Not a bit like Cagney.

I just finished watching it and I thought it was positively fab. I especially loved the high quality music videos to the singles. It made me fall in love with Strawberry Fields Forever all over again.

You all will have read that Dave Dee is no longer with us. But Mickey and Titch and I would like to carry on the good work that's always gone down in number two.

I just have the TV version my mom taped in 1995 so forgive any missed info but I found Ringo funny but not that informative

Does anyone know anything about the "animated" Sgt. Pepper album cover sequence seen in Anthology when discussing the album? Was it done for Anthology or was it taken from another source?  Looks kind of Godley & Creme-ish -- very cool in a freaky sort of way.

Perfectly said. I recently rewatched the DVDs this past week and enjoyed them again, but I noticed some very uncomfortable bits where they're all sitting around and George looks miserable (like when they're hanging at his house in the bonus feature). Also, when they're all in Abbey Road with George Martin...George Harrison ends up making fun of Paul right in the open but the other 3 almost ignore him (and Paul, to his credit, was actually down-playing himself when they had the playback of Golden Slumbers going). I was squirming in my seat...awkward!

Beware of sadness. It can hit you. It can hurt you. Make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for. - George

Yes, it was done pretty well, especially for its time.

I still maintain my one and only real big criticism of the Anthology...I wanted it to dig a bit deeper. They gloss over all the negative stuff (Yoko, Klein, John's drug bust, although they bring up George's? etc). And I wish it didn't end as abruptly in late 1969 after Abbey Road. At the very least it should have gone through 1970 to the final sessions and Paul's lawsuit, although I can see how they wouldn't want to open old wounds. Maybe I'm just being spoiled after reading Peter Doggett's book!

So we know for sure it was made in the 60s?

After reading Doggett's book (I don't know if you saw my response to you in the book section) I imagine we wouldn't have gotten an Anthology at all if anyone had insisted on deeper digging/honesty.

^yes, good point on Doggett's book :lol: Still, they did gloss over a bit too much in Anthology, in my opinion. Still, it's great.

And no idea if that animation is from the 60s...when I said "pretty good for its time," I meant early 90s, lol!

It's from the opening credits of a 1987 documentary It Was Twenty Years Ago Today, made by Granada Television (I think) in the UK, and was about Sgt. Pepper and the Summer of Love.

Was that Twenty Years Ago doc a tie-in with the great Derek Taylor book of the same name (and same year, and same subject matter)?

I can't see the clip here at the office.

They were connected, though whether the doc was a tie-in to the book, or the book a tie-in to doc I can't remember.

What does this mean - is it computer-animated?

No, it's stop-start animation (or whatever the correct term is). Cut-outs and clay models.
