Video: The Beatles performing "Revolution" (David Frost Show)

The Beatles performing "Revolution" on the David Frost Show, blowing the roof off the dump! It originally aired September 4, 1968. They performed the song semi-live (with live vocals performed over a pre-recorded instrumental track) to produce this promotional clip shot by director Michael Lindsay-Hogg. At the same session, they also recorded the "Hey Jude" promotional film.

Outstanding performance!

Yeah, they were great. That's a long way from "Love Me Do".

This is only half 'live,' really, with "live vocals performed over a pre-recorded instrumental track." Also, there are 2 versions of this video, in the other one you can see George turn to Paul and say something that looks like "John's playing like sh*t!"

Still a great performance!

I just read the blurb below the video which makes my comment redundant, apologies :)
