4 stars Magical Mystery Tour was The Beatles' first flop. Shown on British TV at Christmas in 1967, it was their first work following the death of Brian Epstein. McCartney took charge for this free-form "event" where everyone bundled into a coach to see what happened, and the film received a critical mauling, although, to be fair it was shown in black and white!

Musically speaking however, it is one of their better works. Released in the UK as a double EP before it became an album, it contains some brilliant songs. From the Sgt. Pepper-like opener to the brilliant "Fool On The Hill", only the monotonous "Blue Jay Way" lets things down. "Your Mother Should Know" has a music hall feel to it in a similiar way to "When I'm 64", the instrumental "Flying", featuring mellotron, is the only song credited to all four Fabs, but "I am the walrus" is the major work here. It partly consists of Liverpool slang thrown in by Lennon and Pete Shotton, but is mainly Lennon's attack on figures of authority (the police, teachers etc). It also fades out to the sounds of a radio play of "King Lear".

The EP was made into a LP, mainly for the American market, with the addition of the singles released around that time e.g. "Strawberry Fields Forever" and "Hello Goodbye".

3 stars Just an EP, but a welcome release only for the brilliant track " I Am The Walrus". This is one of the Beatles finest songs ever released. " Fool On The Hill' and " Blue Jay Way" are also nice tunes. They reckoned the Beatles were breaking up at this point. Thank goodness they hung in there for the epic albums " Let It Be" and " Abbey Road".

4 stars Never been a massive Beatles fan myself, though their revolutionary ground-breaking inspirational directions of pop/rock music are undisputable. From humble, early beginnings, the 'Fab Four' eventually discovered drugs (mainly pot and LSD, like most bands did...an amazing source of inspiration - so I'm told....) and always utilised the latest recording technology where applicable - even to the point of incorporating the studio as a further 'instrument' - something a lot of intelligent prog bands attempted to do, with various outcomes.... McCartney's subsequent work with band 'Wings' sometimes encroached on prog territory, though I don't own any albums by them anymore

I have the lovely little Gatefold/Booklet dbl 7 " release of this 'Magical Mystery Tour', and it has some very interesting arrangements from the boys....prime-time psychedelia, and perfect partner to The Rolling Stones' 'Satanic Majesties...', which was hammered for being 'too Sergeant Pepper's...' - go figure. The title song is quite a popular track and encompasses everything that was so in fashion at the time (not that I'd know...) the varying tempos, raunchy brass arrangements, and suggestive lyrics - "Roll Up..." (I bet, what a splendid idea !!!). The closing bars of the song always leaves me wondering - these guys could've jammed on that for ages and given Floyd a run for their money ; just a thought. 'Your Mother Should Know' is classic McCartney, melody to the fore. 'I Am The Walrus' is one of the psychedelic giants from the era, with its distorted vocal lines, string arrangements, trippy lyrics and unusual progressions. Record 2 consists of 'The Fool on the Hill', a real hippie song with recorders(or is it a Flageolet ??) and soft melodies - my least favourite track here. 'Flying', though considered as an 'instrumental', does have melodic vocal chants, but its terrific mellotron parts always make it a fond fave for prog-heads. The last bit of the track is really strange, with backwards effects and off-the-wall noises - something that would've been a surprise for many. Lastly, the Harrison led 'Blue Jay Way', features 'leslied' vocal lines, organs and a slight eastern riff, it shows off Harrison's hippie idealism and reflects his interest in India (and hashish - unsure whether they had already gone there, or if it was after this??) - never mind, these songs are definately worth 4 stars.

4 stars Magical Mystery Tour (UK Version) is a double EP release with six songs from the Magical Mystery Tour movie. All six songs also appear on Side 1 of the Magical Mystery Tour (US Version) album release albeit in a different order. Blue Jay Way is for example the last song on this EP while it was the fourth song on the US album version. As I havenīt seen the movie I donīt know in which order they appear in that.

No matter which order the songs appear in they are all of high quality. Songs like the title track, I Am The Walrus and The Fool On The Hill are classics but the other three tracks are almost as accomplished. I especially enjoy the psychadelic Blue Jay Way.

While I would recommend getting the US album version of Magical Mystery Tour) instead of this EP version, I still feel that this is a wonderful release and the quality of the songs more than warrants a 4 star rating. Some might say this is a fan release only but thatīs not how I view things. To those of you who share the former opinion you can take away two stars but Iīll stick with my opinion on this one. Wonderful release.
