    The big question of course is WHY NOT release the whole Apple LP & film catalogue on BluRay. Soon after 09/09/09 Giles Martin said it was possible. I would love WONDERWALL music & film on BluRay- of course with everything else REVOLVER-PEPPER-WHITE LP-ABBEY ROAD-MMT music & film

    The answer to why not is simple: BluRay is already passé. The movie companies are pushing 3-D (because it's harder to rip) and a larger format system to handle the soon-to-be digital-only movies being produced by Hollywood.

    To me, though, this has nothing to do with the 50th anniversary as much as it does that MMT has always been slated to be re-released before Let It Be… and there's all the OTHER releases to be considered.

    [And by other, I include solo releases like Ram, the Olympic album (Paul is reported performing at the opening ceremony), etc.]

    Yellow Submarine is the perfect companion to Magical Mystery Tour because it will make the week appear to be a bigger release for the Fabs. If they tag it the same week as the Scorcese George Harrison documentary is released, it's an even bigger coup.
