A Rarely Seen Beatles Film

As you may or not know, I'm co-writing the memoirs of Ken Scott (one of the five Beatles engineers, and producer for David Bowie, Supertramp, Missing Persons, Jeff Beck, Devo, The Tubes, and lots more). One of the stories he tells is shortly after he started at EMI (it wasn't called Abbey Road yet) in the tape library, he was able to watch an early Beatles session, which was attended by the filmmakers from the Hard Days Night movie. An 8 mm film was shot during the session that has been rarely seen since, but as with everything these days, sooner or later it winds up on YouTube.

By the way, Ken hasn't retired and is still producing and engineering better than ever. I'm amazed at how accessible he is despite his long list of impressive credits. Check out his Facebook page.

The story is a good one, but you'll have to wait for the book, which will be out next year. In the meantime, enjoy this seldom seen video.
