OK, that's a bit puzzling. There haven't been any amazing technical advances in stop-motion animation between 1987 and the present day!

Its fits with Apple taking the poor Sessions mixes and edits and using them on the Anthology LP's. They could have released something amazing but cut a lot of corners for whatever reason.

Was surprised to read that George H was the one who edited and mixed Shout.

Sorry, mmm, I don't quite get the point you're making here. The point vonbontee seems to me to be making is surprise at somebody's view that the 1987 Sgt. Pepper animated sequence from It Was Twenty Years Ago, and used in Anthology, was impressive for its day, and pointing out that there has been no great leap in the animation techniques used between then and when Anthology was released, or even now. Are you suggesting that they should not have used the sequence, commissioned a new version of it? I actually think it's pretty good, and wish they had used more of the full sequence, as it is shown in the YouTube clip I included. I don't see it as a cut corner, but rather a nice clip that was commissioned for a documentary they appeared in, and so was semi-sanctioned, and that they liked enough to use to illustrate the song when it came to it in Anthology.

I'm puzzled by this statement, but I'm not sure if I'm reading it correctly, as stop motion has advanced tremendously since '87 - The Nightmare Before Christmas, Corpse Bride, James and the Giant Peach, Coraline to name a few, and that's only drawing on a few commercial examples.

That said, the level of sophistication in the Sgt Pepper piece makes sense to me for '87. In fact, it might seem even a bit jerky/simple for that time considering NBC came out only a few years later and by then we had the music video for "Sledgehammer." I would have been blown away if it had been made in the 60s.

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.

It just seemed kind of...cheesy and self-centered, "Look At Me!" which we all know Paul is guilty of quite often (as much as I love him!)
