It’s Beatlemania on the SDMB!
I am grateful for the film Let It Be, as it gives an insight into the creation of a Beatles album. Unfortunately, it captures them at their most uninspired (in my opinion). Let It Be is my least favorite Beatles record, due in a large part to Phil Spector’s production, which is thankfully absent from the film. It’s a slightly depressing documentary to watch - Paul is overbearing, John’s on heroin - but the rooftop concert makes up for many of its faults.
In my ideal world, there’d be a film documenting each of their albums, but for the purpose of discussion, let’s only choose one. Sgt. Pepper’s would be fun, with the Beatles at the height of their acid-fueled creativity, but the extensive overdubbing of the album might not be the most entertaining for most audiences. I’m voting for The White Album. Plenty of great songs to include, and we’d get to see the band performing together and also doing their solo songs. I think that watching Eric Clapton perform While My Guitar Gently Weeps with the band would be worth the admission alone.
How about you?
Edit: I’ve included Let It Be, for those who think it was the right choice.
