You could go down a long and winding road deconstructing Beatles albums, and that's exactly what Scott Freiman has done the last several years. The composer/engineer/Beatleologist has drawn big crowds with his addictive multimedia lectures on individual albums. And now they're on DVD, which means you can geek out on them all holiday season.
In four separate discs Freiman drills deep into Rubber Soul, Revolver, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and The White Album. He isolates recording tracks, provides ample backstory (on, for instance, Ringo's short-lived decision to quit the band during the chaotic White Album sessions) and shares rare, vintage promotional videos. Taken as a whole, the lectures chronicle the creative peak of the best rock band ever, and the tensions that led to their demise. Start watching one and you won't be able to let it be.
