I think you're probably right. And it sounds like a cool thing. I just wish that this album, which could be the best album of all time, could have some form of commemoration that is above and beyond such normal things. I mean, like, a movie that was shot at the time but nobody's seen, 10 new tracks we haven't heard, that kind of thing.

There might be some kind of making of doc. There was for Sgt Pepper's.

An entire disc -- maybe 2! -- of the individual elements used on Revolution #9.

I assume it'll have the long psychedelic mix of "Revolution 1" that turned up in Bootlegland a few years back.

I also assume that we still won't get the legendary 27-minute "Helter Skelter" (though that's probably for the best).

You know what I liked on the Pepper's box set? Videos for "A Day in the Life," "Penny Lane," and "Strawberry Fields." I hope every video of them performing any 1968 song in its entirely is included. You can see much (all?) of them on the Anthology DVDs, but it was extra cool in hi def.

There must be an hour or two of Abbey Road footage from 68/69, no? there are bits all over youtube. I'd pay top whack to see that if it was cleaned up.

I think the only thing that was filmed was "Hey Bulldog" wasn't it?

There's all sorts of low-grade studio footage on youtube, G. Have a look.

Oh yeah, but that would be more Let It Be, wouldn't it? (If it's the stuff I'm thinking of.)
