Rare Beatles Videos Have Resurfaced On The Web

You may have noticed how hard is to find Beatles music not only on YouTube but all over the internet. Since the Beatles catalogue had an extension on its copyrights a lot of videos have been removed and a lot of channels have been shut-down. For example, of the SgtPepperChannel there have been three before. Thanks to the fair use law many channels like can still use some of their music and clips but some copyrights infringements are often detected causing the video to be muted or disable on some mobile devices, that why I opened another SgtPepperChannel channel, but on another platform called Bitchute and I have other channels like on Dailymotion and Vimeo, but I am planning to transfer everything onto this new channel and use it as a main second channel.
This is the link :


The fights for Paul McCartney to regain the Beatles copyrights from Sony started in 2013 and will continue until 2018. They were famously purchased by Michael Jackson when he outbid McCartney $41.5m for The Beatles’ ATV Music catalogue in 1985. The Jackson estate sold its stake in the collection to Sony/ATV for $750 million last year.

It's been dubbed by the media as "Cliff Richard's Law", the change to copyright duration in sound recordings.
From 1 November 2013, The Copyright and Duration of Rights in Performances Regulations 2013 came into force, implementing the provisions of Directive 2011/77/EU which extended the term of copyright in sound recordings from 50 to 70 years. The change came after years of political wrangling and means that performers are entitled to receive income for an additional 20 years. Additional measures were also included to improve performers' revenue.


Let's start with my best uploads from Bitchute and
Seven videos definitely deserves to be mentions:

The Official "Two of us" videoclip directed by Matt White of Supergrizzly Ltd. in 2003 for Let it Be Naked. A pencil animation with footage from the Get Back session that has never been largely shown on TV or elsewhere.

When the Yellow Submarine film was restored in 2012 the scene of Beatles meeting the doubles and the song Hey Bulldog was added. However, there was an alternate opening for the song "Lucy In the Sky With Diamonds" and it was sung by Jeremy Hillary Boob PhD.
This scene is not included in the DVD as deleted scene.
Watch out for the first verse lyrics.

While the next clip is taken from the Beatles cartoon episode #35 produced by Al Brodax and also used in 1966 as a promo video for the double A-side single "Eleanor Rigby/Yellow Submarine".
You can watch the full episode here :
A non song-along version of Eleanor Rigby was also included in the episode #37:

Paul McCartney has to say this regarding this song:
“ I was sitting at the piano when I thought of it. The first few bars just came to me, and I got this name in my head... 'Daisy Hawkins picks up the rice in the church'. I don't know why. I couldn't think of much more so I put it away for a day. Then the name Father McCartney came to me, and all the lonely people. But I thought that people would think it was supposed to be about my Dad sitting knitting his socks. Dad's a happy lad. So I went through the telephone book and I got the name McKenzie. ”

An alternated videoclip for "Rain", very different from the one made for the Ed Sullivan Show in 1966. #RobertFreeman

For the John Lennon Anthology in 1998, two videoclips were produced: "Working Class Hero" was created similarly to the scenes used in "Free as a bird" and "Whatever gets you thru the night" similar to the pencil animation on "Two of us" by using real Lennon drawings.

The next four clips were previously uploaded by RevolverTV (aka RevolverMusicVideo) first on YouTube, later on Dailymotion. As much as I know this videos comes from a TV studio archive. Sadly the owner of the channel passed away in 2015, his son took over the administration of the channel but, as most Beatles videos those were taken down too.
The first is a whole unedited take from a single camera of John and Ringo singing and playing throughout "Hello Goodbye". Only a second or two of this take were used in the final editing of the official video.

While this other one has some extra editing towards the end of the clip. Most of it is just the Paul, John, George and Ringo weaving at the camera.

The other one is a completely different video for "I Am The Walrus" made from outtakes.

There's also an alternate version of "Strawberry Fields Forever" (I apology for all the watermarks on the clips, this is how I found them originally, I didn't place it).

We don't talk much about Ringo Starr in this blog.
So, here a less know promo video he made for the song "Early 1970".
I guess the other three ex-beatles didn't appreciated those clips of them on his music-video.

Check out the channel for weekly uploads.

A Tour Of The Most Famous Beatles Places In London

I live in Brighton, 60 miles south of London and nowadays is quite impossible planning a trip of such distance with our lifestyle, especially in big city like London with so many places to visit. However, I had the occasion to do the trip 3 times in the past 3 years and I compiled two videos with the film I captured. I turned the video in some sort of visual documentary.
If I don't share these clips here I don't know where else to post it. There are not on YouTube (copyright reasons).
