In the early eighties, a tape leaked from the UK that was supposedly copied from a videotape that Ringo had just converted over from 16mm films. At the same time a transfer of "One Hand Clapping" came over, as well as the 1964 "Thank Your Lucky Stars" with "I'm A Loser", "Rock And Roll Music", etc.

These tapes had kept under the radar for awhile, but eventually was the source for a VHS out of Japan titled "The Beatles Private Reel".

I personally have never seen that video, but expect that it has been used as a source for most of the promotional film compilations out there (such as "Chronology").

The contents of the VHS Private Reel is:

- She's A Woman
- Ticket To Ride
- Lady Madonna
- Paperback Writer
- Strawberry Fields Forever
- Day Tripper
- Don't Let Me Down
- Hello Goodbye #1
- It Don't Come Easy
- Sentimental Journey
- Suicide
- Hello Goodbye #2
- Back Off Boogaloo
- Rain
- Hello Goodbye #3
- Something
- A Day In The Life

The quality on "Chronology" is better than this disc, however what you have here is the unedited, unprocessed original 3/4" tape copied to VHS, which then proceeded to deteriorate for many, many years.

This is a record of a time when multiple versions of "Hello Goodbye", "Something", "A Day In The Life", the Chiswick Park "Rain", as well as almost every chapter on this tape, was never seen on home video.

Bonuses:
- Video Jukebox. John Peel presents an interview with Richard Lester, and the promos for "Strawberry Fields Forever", "Penny Lane" and "Hello Goodbye"
- The "A Day In The Life" promo taken from a short film titled "Watch Out For Your Ears". This film featured Jimi Hendrix, Joe Cocker, and The New Animals, as well as including this Beatles promo. It looks the same to me, but I offer it due to it's unique source. One of the Hendrix clips in this film is the one of him performing "Sgt. Pepper" at the Saville Theatre, and the Joe Cocker clip is a promo for "With A Little Help From My Friends".
- The Dirty Mac from a black & white workprint for the Rolling Stones Rock N Roll Circus.
- Chicago 1964 excerpt from It's Only Rock N Roll's website auction
