The Tragic History of the Beatles’ Magical Mystery Tour

The fall of 1967 found The Beatles feasting on the critical and commercial success of the Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album and looking for a follow-up. Since the record’s June release, the group had become cultural and musical icons and had attained a form of rock sainthood. They were, by all accounts, perceived as infallible.Then, in early September, just a few weeks after the death of their manager, Brian Epstein (the victim of an accidental overdose of prescription-drugs on August 27, 1967), the Beatles began work on their next project – a film for television entitled Magical Mystery Tour. It would be an extravagant film, every bit as colorful, interesting, and original as their music. Or, at least that was how they envisioned it.

I don't know about that. Fact is that Magical Mystery Tour was written before Sgt Peppers was released.

I think whoever wrote that is just plain wrong. It was always conceved by Paul to be for a seperate project although it does always seem surprising it was recorded so soon after Pepper and before Pepper was released.
