Today on the Fab Four at Four, I'm playing your favorite Beatles hits from 1967 - 1970!
The Beatles wrapped up their last tour in August of 1966 and focused on their work in the studio for their remaining years together.
In The Beatles Anthology, John Lennon states that "if stage shows were to be out, we wanted something to replace them. Television was the obvious answer." The Magical Mystery Tour was their first television special after they stopped touring.
Prior to the movie, McCartney had been creating home movies and this was a source of inspiration for Magical Mystery Tour.
