This DVD collection has just about every Sgt. Pepper related film and music piece gathered together on one dual layer DVD.
An incredible five and a half hours of Beatle music and video !
The Main Menu has seven headings:
This was an official documentary shown on television featuring George Martin taking us through the album tracks and Paul, George and Ringo giving us their
memories of the sessions.
The Making Of Sgt. Pepper was transmitted in the UK on ITV on 14th June 1992 and featured separate interviews with Paul (filmed on 9th April 1992), George (12th April) and Ringo (19th April). The show also features George Martin playing some unreleased Sgt. Pepper's recordings directly off the original studio 4-track master tapes.
Although great to see and hear with great sound quality, this feature is rather spoilt with Japanese sub-titles throughout.
Plenty of fans have the original broadcast on video tape in just as good picture quality (I know I do).

This mix is absolutely stunning.
Even if the rest of the disc was blank, this mix would be worth it on it's own.
It is in awesome 5.1 full D.T.S. sound.
I didn't think such a mix existed (?), how the heck can the bootleggers have possibly concocted this without having access to the master tapes. I was stunned at how good it was. Whoever was at the controls of the mixing desk made some great choices with voices being mixed just right for the music involved. The bassline is fabulous. There wasn't one part of it I could criticize.
Except .... why on earth hasn't there been an official issue in this form ?
I have read many arguments about the number of channels available in the original tapes, but listening to this DTS mix blew that argument right away.
