It’s been over forty years since the Beatles recorded their last music video. But a previously unseen clip of a cover of Words of Love by Buddy Holly is set to delight and intrigue fans. The video was recorded live at the BBC Radio studios a year before the band released the song on the album Beatles for Sale.
The video, which mixes psychedelic animations with black-and-white footage, features the Fab Four as they perform on stage and in the recording studio. The boys are seen driving in a van through the countryside, in the city and and watching fireworks, with a glimpse of the Queen Mother. The video also evokes Beatlemania, with screaming fans and a girl passing out after glimpsing her idols. She also reveals that she used to take the band's castoff clothing to give to fans. She said: 'I didn't steal them but if a shirt was ripped and they didn't want it, I'd go round there and take it. I'd always say to Louise Harrison [George's mother] 'Can I have that?' and I'd just cut the shirts up and send them out.'
