Yeah, as I said, I don't see any of it as "controversial" as many have claimed, but that key part of "I'll play whatever you want, or I won't play at all...whatever it is that will please you, I'll do it". While its incredibly interesting to watch, I do feel like we're also not supposed to be there, and certainly that they shared that opinion later in life. Its cool to be the fly on the wall, but its also at a time when maybe there shouldn't have been. Its not like anyone punched anyone, but it certainly paints certain people in poor lights, but thats just how it is being in the studio, working on a film set, etc. Its a high pressure environment, and you need that to create a good product, but you don't necessarily need it on film for everyone to see. For that reason, I don't see it coming out, but maybe I'm wrong. I like the idea of being in the studio with them. I think that was the wrong album to do it on, and when you watch it its not "bad" or "embarrassing" but I do feel there's a sense of "I shouldn't be here. This is their thing that only truly makes sense to them." Its not really sessions meant for our entertainment, which is why I see why its been held back.

None of which is a case for not releasing the Rooftop concert which WAS intended to be experienced by others!

Yes the rooftop is fantastic. Only guess I can make is that there hasn't really been a proper outlet to JUST release the rooftop portion which is, what, 20 or 30 minutes at most? I would understand releasing the full movie with that full show as a bonus. But just the show? You wouldn't really just put that on TV, wouldn't really release it as a stand alone thing. I agree its great, but would understand the dilemma if they just don't know how to only release that. I mean I'd still love to see Shea Stadium come out at some point in full, but again I'd understand if its just a slightly off time release. But who knows, I'm just speculating. I understand why Let It Be has never seen the light of day though and could understand why it continues to be the case.

They could put the 4K version of Shea and the rooftop concert on the same Blu-ray. I would go crazy for that.

They could stretch the rooftop performance into a documentary including interviews (both old and new) on the who, what, why, when, and where, etc.
There's probably loads of interesting stuff leftover from the original filming leading up to it and the aftermath.

By the way, since I haven't seen it in awhile...where was Yoko during the rooftop performance? I don't recall her being up there in any of the footage.
At least she wasn't snuggled right up next to John!

For what it's worth I consider Plastic Ono Band to be the manifesto of life. That's how high regard I have for this LP. All Things Must Pass is also on par and nearly as powerful. The 2 best solo Beatle works for me. For my taste I love Paul's Ram, Band On The Run and then McCartney as his best. Poor Ringo hasn't really moved me as a solo artist but I love him just the same and he is an amazing drummer in my opinion. Even without massive and great long solos like john Bonham, Keith Moon and Neal Pert who I also hold in high esteem. Though I would have loved The Beatles to continue as The Stones maybe we're lucky they stopped where they did and left an unbeatable legacy. Again this is my opinion, though I'm also a huge Stones Fan!

It is THE solo album of the Beatles. Stands alone on top of everything.

New Digitally Remastered Version Of The Beatles’ ‘Yellow Submarine’ To Hit UK Cinemas
By Tim Peacock January 15, 2018

A new, digitally-remastered version of The Beatles’ classic animated movie Yellow Submarine is returning to cinemas for the first time since 1999. The new film is set to play in UK and Ireland cinemas via an event-style release on 8 July, 2018 to coincide with the 50th anniversary of its original release. Tickets are due to go on sale on Tuesday, 17 April.

Directed by George Dunning, and written by Lee Minoff, Al Brodax, Jack Mendelsohn and Erich Segal, Yellow Submarine began its voyage to the screen when Brodax, who had previously produced nearly 40 episodes of ABC’s animated Beatles TV series, approached The Beatles’ manager Brian Epstein with a unique vision for a full-length animated feature.

Yellow Submarine, based upon a song by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, is a fantastic tale brimming with peace, love, and hope, propelled by Beatles songs, including "Eleanor Rigby," "When I’m Sixty-Four," "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds," "All You Need Is Love," and "It’s All Too Much." When the film debuted in 1968, it was instantly recognised as a landmark achievement, revolutionising a genre by integrating the freestyle approach of the era with innovative animation techniques.

Inspired by the generation’s new trends in art, the film resides with the dazzling Pop Art styles of Andy Warhol, Martin Sharp, Alan Aldridge and Peter Blake. With art direction and production design by Heinz Edelmann, Yellow Submarine is a classic of animated cinema, featuring the creative work of animation directors Robert Balser and Jack Stokes with a team of animators and technical artists.

"I thought from the very beginning that the film should be a series of interconnected shorts" remembers Edelmann. "The style should vary every five minutes or so to keep the interest going until the end." These styles included melding live-action photography with animation, 3-dimensional sequences and kaleidoscopic "rotoscoping" where film is traced frame by frame into drawings. The entire process took nearly two years, 14 different scripts, 40 animators and 140 technical artists, ultimately producing a groundbreaking triumph of animation.

The Beatles performed the songs for the film but their cartoon characters are voiced by actors. The quartet does appear in the closing scene of the film, however. The restoration was supervised by Paul Rutan Jr. and a team including Chris Dusendschon, Rayan Raghuram and Randy Walker. The work was reportedly done by hand, a single frame at a time by 40 to 60 trained digital artists over several months.

Where do the colours come from? Why a Green one: because of John's and Paul's Irish origins? (I don't know about George and Ringo's confession).
Wasn't there talk about an Orange Album, too? If Green means Irish does Orange then mean the colour of the Royalists?!
I think Gazza could give the correct explanations about Green and Orange.

I chose green because I like it but also I work in printing and one way of printing has the colors red, blue & green.

The 'basic' colours are blue, red and yellow if I remember correctly. So, a yellow one is needed after they already had a white, a blue and red one.
White, red and blue (is there an 'order'?!) are the colours of the Union Jack flag. That's why I thought that the Greatest Hits records were in blue and red?! Or does somebody know the story behind that?
To add another Greatest Hits of the Beatles in an other colour might lead to chosing green as in British Racing Green (though it's darker than your green, Dave). Up till the 1960s all cars in Formula 1 were in their country's colour. The Ferrari red is one remnant of that or the McLarens going back to orange which was for New Zeeland (Bruce McLaren was from there). Since decades the Kawasaki works team in the Superbike motorcycle World Championship is based in Britain and still sports the green of GB.
Then having some lines in mind about an orange album I was making up that Anglo-Irish connection.

With printing there are two color choices; red, blue & green, or cyan, yellow, magenta & black. The second set is the opposite color of the first set except for black. Written as RGB or CMYK.
