Backbeat Special Edition DVD

backbeatBackbeat, an interpretation of the Beatles’ Hamburg days has been re-released as a Special Edition DVD, out today.

Sure, I enjoy the movie (which is actually pretty good); but I’ll be picking this up for the 5.1 Surround audio. The actual band that performs the Beatles’ live music is comprised of Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore (guitar), R.E.M.’s Mike Mills (bass), Nirvana’s Dave Grohl (drums) and the Twilight Singers’/Afghan Whigs’ Greg Dulli (John Lennon’s vox). Dave Pirner of Soul Asylum also shows up for some reason.

Also, I can’t speak highly enough about the soundtrack. It’s comprised of fun, garage-band covers of Motown and classic early rock material. It’s one of the few albums that I’ve kept on heavy rotation since it was released. Greg’s voice is in top form.
