    well as long as they don't actually have her "singing". Like that godawful mess of a track on the Stones "Rock n Roll Circus" that I have to skip over whenever I listen to that album.

    Great stuff, never seen it before. Not that much of Yoko.

    All I'd ever seen from that period was the gig on the roof of EMI, which kicks ass too.

    BTW, I recently came across this:

    He can say so. He sounds way better than he does on his latest album.

    So it seems there will be a book to go along with the new movie.... looks like another big "coffee table" book, similar to the one they put out to accompany the Anthology series in the mid 1990s...

    no word on a musical release to accompany the movie, but it seems inevitable that there will be some sort of "super deluxe" remaster of "Let It Be" as there has been for Sgt. Pepper, the White Album, and Abbey Road. As those were all "50th anniversary" reissues, this album technically should have been out already, but the entire project was slowed down by COVID, like everything else on the goddamned planet.

    I'll pass on that extra-hyper-mega-deluxe Let it Be. I was happy with the Let it Be Naked release.

    Yeah, I would have thought it would more likely be under the Universal/Scumcast corporate umbrella, since they now control EMI/Capitol and the Beatles music catalog.

    I wish I could "fucking suck" so much to have a 7 year recording career that people are still talking about over 50 years after the band broke up.

    Now as to "better than the Stones".... well Paul is certainly entitled to his opinion, of course. No question that "Satanic Majesties" was a ripoff of Sgt Pepper... and not all that good of one, really.

    The Stones managed to reinvent themselves by going back on the road in 1969, as they had initially stopped touring in 1966, about the same time the Beatles did. Had the Beatles started touring again, they might have been able to keep the band together. Which will probably be mentioned in the Peter Jackson film, as it was being discussed at the time. First it was a club tour, then a single gig at some casino, they even thought of renting out a cruise ship (like Kiss did recently). Eventually they gave up on the logistical nightmare of trying to schedule a "secret" live show - or set of shows - (being the biggest band on the planet) and went with the rooftop gig at Apple headquarters. And then the cops made them pull the plug on that after a half hour or so, but it was great while it lasted. Possibly their best live performance ever, considering they couldn't actually hear themselves play over the screaming girls on any of their official tours in the early 60s.

    I was surprised about how Lennon took guitar solos on the roof at EMI the first time I saw the whole footage. Harrison was supposed to be the guitarist in the band. Though I knew he could play, I didn't suspect he would play all of them.

    I had a similar experience with a different outcome. I got heavy exposure via 8 track tape to The Beatles (Sgt Peppers), Wings (Band on the Run) and Fleetwood Mac (Rumours). I can still remember the distinct sound the tape deck made when you put it in, skipped tracks, etc.
    I ended up loving those bands. I can't remember anything my parents listened to that really got on my nerves other than America.

    Three bands I love to hate! Too soft for me! I can appreciate the musicianship, but just don't like the bands. Never liked Pink Floyd either, even on acid.

    For myself, I don't think they suck...I do remember as a kid growing up in the 1970s that The Beatles were virtually always touted as "the best rock band, ever, period"...and this isn't a sentiment I have come to share in terms of my own listening preferences.

    I wouldn't understate the impact The Beatles had, but I don't find myself ever craving a listen to their music much anymore.

    Some of that might have to do with having heard their stuff non-stop growing up from as early as I can remember to when I was about ten years old: they were my mother's favorite band (she was about 15 years old when the first wave of Beatlemania hit the US in 1963), so she had all their records. Probably more of it has to do with discovering more than a few artists as I went along that, frankly, I just plain liked musically far more than I did The Beatles.

    Along the same lines as their music having been more than amply represented in terms of airtime over the decades - overplayed, to be polite about it - the story of The Beatles has been more than amply chronicled in the media. Thus, while this latest Get Back documentary may well be of interest to many, for myself...I've heard/seen/read most of this stuff before...to the point where I've more than satisfied whatever curiosity I had in the workings of The Beatles.

    Do I really need to hear McCartney or Ringo musing on the Let It Be sessions yet again? There are literally dozens of youtube clips of interviews of the two over the decades since The Beatles broke up expounding on the same topic, a topic that was - to my satisfaction - amply chronicled in the mid 1990s Beatles Anthology releases.

    I suppose for some, anything Beatles-related is welcome. That's fine. For me, what I've already listened to, seen and read is more than enough.

    I was always more Stones than Beatles but I'm glad I decided to go see McCartney a few summers back.

    Not sure I'd go see Get Back in a theater. My friend would probably ask me to go after one of our long bike rides. I'd watch it on D+ though.

    At least Get Back will feature the Beatles themselves, unlike in the boring latest movies about such or such dead rock star. Nothing like the real peeps. I'll always skip when it isn't.

    The Glyn Johns mix of the album has been available as a bootleg for years, but obviously the sound quality here is a Hell of a lot better.....
