The summer of 2012 will mark the 50th anniversary of The Beatles replacing original drummer Pete Best with Ringo Starr before the recording of Love Me Do, the Fab Four's first hit record.
To commemorate this, the critically acclaimed short film The Beatles at their Best, best documentary winner at the 2011 New England Underground Film Festival, will be offered free to the public via YouTube for 100 days beginning June 24th. The release date was chosen to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the closing of the legendary Casbah Coffee Club, launch pad of The Beatles and the Merseybeat sound, forever changing the face of popular music.

Paul McCartney said, "I think it's a good idea to let people know about The Casbah. They know about The Cavern, they know about some of those things, but The Casbah was the place where all that started."
The film, The Beatles at their Best, is made primarily from photos, video clips and interviews all found on the Internet, many only recently available. It gives fans a chance to Meet The Beatles at the time they were at their best, a time when it's possible that the groups most popular member wasn't John, Paul, George or Ringo.
John Lennon said, "We were at our best when we were playing in the dance halls of Liverpool and Hamburg. The world never saw that."
