“Magical Mystery Tour”
Blu-ray/DVD Deluxe Box Set ($94.98)

Long out-of-print and difficult to find, The Beatles’ 1967 quirky self-produced movie (about a dreamlike day trip to the seaside with a coach full of characters) has been restored for its 45th anniversary and repackaged with a splendid array of extras. The 10”x10” gift set includes both a Blu-ray and DVD, a 60-page book filled with photos from the production, commentary from Paul McCartney, numerous featurettes and interviews, scenes and performances not included in the film, and a vinyl collectible reproduction of the original seven-song EP release with the unforgettable soundtrack songs “Hello Goodbye,” “The Fool on the Hill” and “I Am The Walrus.”
