Before retiring, recording producer George Martin, famed for his for association with The Beatles, returned to The Beatles songbook, shaping performances by several artists not usually associated with The Beatles, and some not even recognized for their musical abilities.
This excellent documentary captures studio sessions for the recording (issued October 1998 by MCA), and also features conversations about the selected songs and concepts, as Martin works closely with his chosen talents, opening with Phil Collins (Golden Slumbers) and then moving on to Robin Williams/Bobby McFerrin (Come Together), Goldie Hawn (A Hard Day's Night), Jim Carrey (I Am the Walrus) and John Williams (Here Comes the Sun).
This footage has been transferred from a VHS video recording that is over 10 years old. The tape had started to deteriorate and this has affected some of the audio in parts of the episode. It is still very watchable but not perfect like many of you may be used to. Picture quality is very good throughout with the odd (rare) jump here and there.
