The Beatles “A Day in the Life” Video Here at Last, But it’s Ringo’s Drumming That Stars


The Beatles’ “A Day in the Life” is a remarkable recording, of course. It ends “Sgt. Pepper” with a gravity from which popular music has never recovered. Now we’ve got the video coming on the Beatles “1 + 1” collection which comes November 13th. This is an actual must have box set with a CD of the Beatles’ 27 number 1 hits all remixed after all this time in new enhanced stereo– and superior even to the 2009 box set. There’s also two DVDs (plain or Blu Ray) with all recovered, enhanced, or discovered videos– including “A Day in the Life.”

On this track in particular, listen for Ringo. He is an amazing drummer. He gives these records a sophisticated personality that is too often underrated.
