This one came out just in time to be my favorite present for my 13th birthday. With all those pictures in the booklet, it was initially a bit confusing as to whether MMT was an actual TV show or movie or whatever, as I was unaware of it ever being broadcast or shown anywhere. At times the Beatles had such discrete and measured visibility in the 60s, at least in the backwater where I lived. Eventually I learned that it was a movie short, and I never got to see it entirely until the mid-70s.
I've always looked at it as a Son of Sgt. Pepper kind of album, lol. More great music, just not as many new songs! Blue Jay Way was also a little hard on the ears at first for me, but by now it has become a real psychedelic period piece, MMT wouldn't be the same without it. I wore out my original album, but I picked up a mint copy about 20 years ago. The booklet makes it a must-have on vinyl. The DVD is a must-have as well, for that matter!
