    That's funny. The Beatles never played "Eight Days a Week" during their concerts. They mimed it for TV, though. But no live performances.

    Interesting choice of a title for a documentary on their live performances. But it does fit the hectic schedule.

    I wish a review of the film (as it is now) would leak out… I'm very guarded as far as getting my hopes up for it.

    Having 'Eight Days A Week' as the title might explain why footage from Shea Stadium, showing them in their most famous live concert, was used for the recent 1+ DVD release.

    Based on something Mark Lewisohn said somewhere, and the "Drop In" clip on the 1+ disc, am I right to fear that the live performances will be "enhanced" using elements of the studio versions of the songs?

    I'm going to see a preview on Thursday night.
    I will share my thoughts and observations on Friday.

    I guess Nowhere Man must have signed an agreement not to disclose anything after all. But from what I'm hearing about these screenings, the film has transformed from being a film about what The Beatles was like as a live band to yet another chronological account of the story of the band, only the time frame (the touring years) has been kept. Sad.

    How does this latest information jive with your previous account that an "inside source" said the changes resulted in a "great improvement?"

    If what you are now reporting turns out to be true, then I completely agree with you. This is truly sad and a huge dissappointment and yet another in a very long line of blown opportunities by Apple to produce and issue quality materials. All I can say is that if this movie turns out to be The Beatles Story from 1962 to 1966, then SHAME ON YOU, RON HOWARD, SHAME ON YOU.
