The hits, and the gifts, keep on coming here at AllMusic. Just as our big Beach Boys giveaway is wrapping up and our R.E.M. giveaway is gaining steam, we're thrilled to offer the Beatles' Magical Mystery Tour collectors box set to one lucky winner!
Magical Mystery Tour, the third film conceived, written and directed by the Beatles, follows the creative and critical triumph of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, and traces the whimsical 1967 journey of a busload of colorful characters across the English countryside. Rather than a straight-ahead narrative, the film takes a more free-flowing approach, featuring musical interludes of now-classic Beatles songs like "I Am the Walrus" and "The Fool on the Hill".
The Magical Mystery Tour collectors box set is comprised of the film in both DVD and Blu-ray – which features previously unseen footage, newly-filmed interviews and audio commentary by Paul McCartney – as well as a 60-page book that gives a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film, plus a reproduction of the double 7" EP of the new Beatles songs introduced in the film, a bonus previously only issued with the film's original UK release.
Watch a trailer for the restored, reissued Magical Mystery Tour:
