Beatles a Go-Go
11 July 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Great document of the early Beatles appearances on the cult British music programme "Ready Steady Go", although the version I watched was a 48 minute extended version. This of course was before the band themselves helped usher in the promo - video age with their own song-films - from about "Help" onwards, in fact.

Here they lip-synch their way (John less successfully than the others!) through their early smashes and also some great B-sides (remember them?) too - like "I'll Get You", "She's a Woman" and "You Can't Do That". The boys seem to enjoy themselves throughout, - check Ringo doing the frug with Cathy McGowan, answering the usually between-songs inane questions (some delivered by celebrity guest-hostess Dusty Springfield) with wit and panache, Lennon wasting no opportunity to shamelessly plug his first book "In His Own Write".

The camera work is pretty all over the place - during George's classic solo for "Can't Buy Me Love", we get a close-up of Ringo beating the skins, for some reason - but just sit back, take in the great songs and relive the initial success of the world's greatest ever band, just like I did.
