The Beatles' Greatest Hits Comp '1' Gets Expanded Reissue with Videos
The Beatles' insanely popular 2000 compilation 1 is the best-selling album of its decade, and now it's being revisited with an expanded version containing the Fab Four's music videos. This will be out on November 6 through Apple Corps/UMG.

This reissue will be available in various formats: CD and DVD/Blu-ray versions are available separately or in a combined package. These include archival videos for the 27 hits included on the initial version of 1, with the visuals being uncovered from the Beatles' vaults and carefully restored.

There's also an expanded version of the album called 1+. This comes with a CD, plus two DVDs or Blu-ray discs. The bonus disc includes 23 extra videos, including rarities and alternate versions. The new audio mixes were created by Giles Martin with Sam Okell at Abbey Road Studios.

A double-vinyl version will follow.

See the full tracklist below (bear in mind that the standard version of 1 includes just the first disc, while the second disc only comes with 1+). The first DVD and Blu-ray each run for 110 minutes, while the bonus disc runs for 95 minutes.

A trailer for the visuals can be seen at the bottom of this page. Pre-orders are available from the Beatles' website.

These promotional films were groundbreaking at the time, helping to pioneer the now-commonplace practice of making music videos. A press release points out that the Beatles made these clips to help promote their music without needing to make in-person appearances, which became particularly useful after they stopped touring in the middle of their career.

Paul McCartney said in a statement, "These videos and films are spectacular reminders of the era we lived in. They also rock!"

Ringo Starr added, "I think it's really interesting to see the videos we made, some of them incredible and some of them really incredible. How else would we have got to sit on a horse?"
