All This & World War II

edited August 2010 in The Beatles: Rock Band
Has anyone ever seen this film/documentary? I know some of the singles from the film, just through hearing them from the individual artist, or just hearing them somewhere. But I've never seen this film, nor heard all the songs. Seeing as there are some pretty big artists(not just for the time, but all time) covering the beatles greats, but if anyone has seen it, it is worth a view? I "stumbled" across this. From wiki

a 1976 musical documentary that juxtaposes Beatles songs, performed by a number of musicians, with World War II newsreel footage and 20th Century Fox films from the 1940s. It lasted a week in movie theaters and was quickly sent into storage, although it did play a midnight show at Landmark's Nuart Theatre in Los Angeles in June 2007.

The original intention of the filmmakers was to use actual Beatles music in the film. The decision to use other artists covering Beatles music was made by the film's producers after they realized additional money could be made through a soundtrack album. The decision was a sound one, as the soundtrack actually generated more revenue than the film.

The film was made only six years after the Beatles had split up.

The film has never been released on home video or DVD, but bootleg copies of the film are available from several collector-to-collector resources.

"Strawberry Fields Forever" was the first solo recording by Peter Gabriel to be released after his departure from the band Genesis.

So maybe no one has seen it based on those facts. But....
