New Beatles collection pairs #1 hits with restored 1960s promo films

Among other things, the Beatles pioneered the use of video to promote their music.

Back in the 1960s, long before MTV, the filmed several entertaining and innovative film shorts to share their latest music on television.

The shorts appeared on British TV, on "The Ed Sullivan Show" and elsewhere.

Now, after two days of teasing the project with a myserious countdown video that popped up on YouTube, the news is out. The Beatles have remixed and remastered their best-selling compilation of number one hits, 1, and paired it with DVD/Blu-ray disks featuring the promo videos and additional video content.

The details and some additional teaser video is all up at our sister site, the Glass Onion Beatles Journal, here.
