AllMusic Review by

This sometimes interesting Beatles tie-in was apparently approved of by Paul McCartney, who provided some concert footage for the project (truncated clips from a 1990s McCartney show salted in at the beginning and end.) Bicknell, who acted as a driver and roadie for the band between 1964 and 1966, narrates his experiences over a mixture of photographs and film footage. In a later section, Bicknell leads a tour of Beatles-related locations. This is a disc for those with an interest in memorabilia and minutiae, and even then, it seems unlikely to be regularly played, with one exception: There are no chapter stops for the McCartney live material.
