Magical Mystery Tour is the name of the album and double EP by the English rock band The Beatles, first released in late 1967 (see 1967 in music).

History of the project

Magical Mystery Tour film

After Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, Paul McCartney wanted to create a film based upon the Beatles and their music. The film was to be unscripted: various "ordinary" people (including John Lennon's uncle Charlie) were to travel on a charabanc bus and have unspecified "magical" adventures, in the manner of Ken Kesey's Merry Pranksters.

The Magical Mystery Tour movie was made, but the hoped-for "magical" adventures never happened. During the filming, an ever greater number of cars followed the hand-lettered bus, hoping to see what its passengers were up to, until a running traffic jam developed. The spectacle ended after Lennon angrily tore the lettering off the sides of the bus.


Magical Mystery Tour was the first Beatles film project following the death of manager Brian Epstein in August 1967, and there has been much speculation that the absence of Epstein's judgment contributed to its undisciplined production, as seen, for instance, in the absence of a screenplay and professional direction. The film originally appeared twice on BBC-TV over the 1967 Christmas holidays, but was savaged by critics on its release[1]; it has, however, been praised by filmmakers like Steven Spielberg.

Film soundtrack

The movie's soundtrack was far more favourably received, and was nominated for a Grammy Award for best album in 1968.[2] It was released in the UK in December 1967 as a double EP. The American version was released in late November 1967 as an LP; its cover depicts the EP's artwork in an orange border, with a list of song titles above it. Capitol Records released MMT as full-length album because EPs were not as popular in the US as they were in the UK. The Magical Mystery Tour LP was divided into two halves: The first side was the film soundtrack, and the second side was a collection of A- and B-sides released in 1967.

Side one

The first side, identical to the British EP, is a prime example of music from the psychedelic era, opening with the grandly rollicking title track, followed by McCartney's wistful "Fool on the Hill"; "Flying", one of only two commercially released Beatles instrumentals up until that time (the first being the very early, and often forgotten Harrison-Lennon composition "Cry for a Shadow"); "Blue Jay Way", an evocative mood piece by George Harrison; and the nostalgic "Your Mother Should Know."

Rounding out side one, "I Am the Walrus" — full of crashing orchestrations and dubbed vocals — is one of the Beatles' more startling, avant-garde creations. The lyrics, filled with maddening juxtapositions of words and phrases, were Lennon's sardonic response to learning that an English master at his alma mater, Quarry Bank Grammar School, was requiring his students to analyse Beatles songs. Lennon was particularly inspired by 'Alice in wonderland' during this period and the title comes from 'The Walrus and the Carpenter'. Music sample I Am the Walrus ( file info) Problems?

Side two

The songs on side two were the band's non-album singles from the period. To keep to its release schedule, Capitol Records used a stereo simulator on the monaural master tapes of the last three songs, rather than waiting for the stereo tapes to be sent over from Britain.

Side two is anchored by two starkly contrasting, semi-autobiographical songs: Lennon's "Strawberry Fields Forever" and McCartney's "Penny Lane". Originally released as a double A-side single, Lennon's "Strawberry Fields" was a surreal account of childhood memories, while McCartney's "Penny Lane" was more light-hearted. Both songs were recorded at the beginning of the Sgt. Pepper sessions, but had been left off that album, a decision that producer George Martin later regretted.[3] Cover of the first English edition of 1793 of Benjamin Franklins autobiography. ...

The remaining tracks on side two include McCartney's counter (and A-side) to "I Am the Walrus" — the relentlessly upbeat, "Hello Goodbye", and the Lennon-McCartney collaboration "Baby You're a Rich Man" (the first song recorded specifically for The Beatles' animated film Yellow Submarine, which would be released in theatres one year later). The LP concludes with Lennon's jaunty anthem "All You Need Is Love" — the centrepiece of the historic Our World satellite broadcast — which coincided with 1967's Summer of Love and encapsulated the sentiments of the flower power movement.

Release

When standardising The Beatles' releases for compact disc in the late 1980s, the American LP version (which was imported into the UK, peaked on the British album charts at #31 as an American import, and was issued by Parlophone Records in Britain in 1976) was included with the British album lineup instead of the British EP, with true stereo recordings replacing the earlier processed ones. (The true-stereo version of the Magical Mystery Tour LP was first issued in Germany in 1971, but the 1976 Parlophone issue used the Capitol masters with the fake stereo.) Capitol quietly reissued the Magical Mystery Tour LP using the German masters in the US with catalogue number C1-48061 in true stereo. Actually, The remaining Beatles non-LP single sides were compiled as Past Masters, Volume One and Past Masters, Volume Two.

Although the British version of the LP released in 1976 used the same fake stereo on the last three songs as the Capitol LP, it did feature “I am the Walrus” with the intro riff repeated the world standard six times rather than the American LP’s four times. The German LP used a different (and generally preferred) mix for “Strawberry Fields Forever.” Possibly because of this, but more likely because it was in true stereo throughout, it was popular as an import with many well informed American and British fans. In fact, the German LP was well on its way to becoming the world standard for this album even before the compact disk releases, being the version used on the British and the Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs cassette tapes. It is therefore quite logical and appropriate that when the CD was released it used the German masters, although the artwork and packaging suggested the American LP (or the British near copy of it). It should be noted however that the “German masters” are German only in that they were made for the German LP, not necessarily by anyone in Germany.
