Eight Days A Week – DVD and two Blu-ray versions
A bit of a puzzle here, as the French Amazon site has listed three versions of the upcoming documentary, “Eight Days A Week – The Touring Years” for future release, one DVD and two Blu-ray listings, priced differently. This may suggest that the more expensive Blu-ray perhaps has more added material, either in the packaging or in the contents. If we had to guess, perhaps the expensive version has the newly remastered Shea Stadium concert as a bonus feature or as a second disc?

Bill Harry, John Lennon’s friend and founder editor of Liverpool’s own music paper Mersey Beat, reports that he was interviewed for the film, but did not make the final cut. He says that he has been informed that footage from his interview will be included on the DVD/Blu-ray release of the film as bonus material. Hopefully, further bonus material will not only be more talking heads, but more home movie concert footage assembled during research and production.
In a recent review of the film by Team Rock, we are informed that “the live footage is riveting: you get several songs in their entirety, the thundering rhythm section and the exchange of exuberant looks giving an idea of how it feels to be centre-stage”. In another passage, the review reveals that “there’s a fascinating sequence full of outtakes where they return to the sanctuary of the studio to make Revolver and Sgt. Pepper”.
