Better Appreciation Of Brian Epstein's Role
26 June 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The seventh episode of The Beatles Anthology covers the period July 1967 to July 1968 which happens to be another interesting period for the band's history in the sense that it is not controversial but for the new experiences they have taken and the new direction the band has gone to not only in terms musically but also with regards to their existence.

This interesting period includes band's trip to India wherein they met the Maharishi.It was evident that this meeting had different effects and impact on each members of the band with respect to their views towards life and their songwriting.It was also this period when their manager Brian Epstein passed away.Apparently,the Beatles fans would realize on how much effect this had as they lost someone who held the band together for many years and how ultimately this speed up to their dissolution as a band.We also get to see each member's reflection and reminisce as they made two films namely: The Magical Mystery Tour and The Yellow Submarine.Obviously,footage of songs from both films were played.The band's business ventures also came into the picture such as Apple Records as well as historic events that the band participated in like the global satellite broadcast of video when the band performed "All You Need is Love" live as well as their musical video of "Hello, Goodbye" which obviously became forerunners of MTV.And finally,it was also during this period when John met Yoko Ono.Do I need to say more? LOL

The Beatle fan will definitely appreciate the role of Brian Epstein while watching this episode of the documentary.Apparently,he was a great manager and crucial to the band's success as he held them together through thick and thin and inspired them to take on new and uncharted territories when it comes to their music.Too bad that his loss was crucial to the band's history as it became a major factor to their end three years after his death.And it only got worse when John met Yoko.Although I am not blaming her for the Beatles disbandment,I could only say that she did inspire John to become different from his band members musically and individually.Finally,it was also great to know that the Beatles' creative genius truly still seen in today's music particularly when they did the satellite broadcast and the promotional videos.
