Hurray!!! The stories are back.  Just when you thought it was safe to accept it would never be released Michael Lindsay-Hoog, the Let It Be director, has said on a radio interview that Let It Be has been worked on over the last few years and the dvd could be out in 2013, with a second making of disc loaded with outtakes.

This will be after a 2 disc reissue of Magical Mystery Tour.

 

Believe this if you wish, but i can see certainly Olivia being against it (keeping with George's stance) and Paul and Ringo dont want it out i cannot see it being issued, certainly without it being heavily re-edited. Yoko could easily say its a piece of art that shows the beatles in a period where they are together in their separateness and that now John would want it out because its real.

I'm not so bothered about it being reissued (though it'd be nice to have), but I would like to see the outtakes/unused footage. I've Got A Feeling ML-H wasn't allowed to include any scenes that didn't feature The Beatles, so there's a lot of good stuff that had to be left on the shelf.

mr. Sun king coming together said:

a-hard-days-night-paul-6That they were complete assholes?

That's a secret?

The movie was originally released on the big screen for God and everybody to see, a zillion (seems like it anyway) books have been written about the fact that they were not angels and you can't swing a dead Blue Meanie around the internet without seeing something written or a video about it.

Throughout all of that they remain to this day one of the best selling artists. I hope this does come out - I'd love to have it.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

I'll only believe this when I have an officially Apple licenced DVD in my hand.  There's been so much said about the release of "Let It Be" on DVD that it's just dragging on and on.

 

They should either announce it and release it, or give out a statement saying "...this will never be released on DVD/Bluray..." so we know either way.

"Never guess. Unless you have to. There's enough uncertainty in the universe as it is."

I would think Apple people or people hired by Apple will work on it to make it presentable to Paul, Ringo, Yoko and Olivia for release at certain times. Its then up to all four to either agree to its release or it will be blocked. Do United Artists still have a say in the film?

A few products over the years have been compiled but ultimately rejected by Apple. One example being a White Album box set for its 40th anniversary with a handful of bonus tracks. Instead we got the legendary, at least to me, limited edition expensive White Album pen. Plus all the other crap, sorry, merchandise that has been officially licensed over the years.

I completely disagree. The DVDs of AHDN, Help! and YS have been around for years. As far as I know only the first of those has been issued on Blu-Ray, and even then I don't think it's available here in the UK – you have to import it. They're missing a trick by not reissuing these films – and the promo films, the Maysles movie, Shea Stadium etc.

And if they're going to re-release AHDN, H! and YS, it's the (post-Aspinall) Apple way to come up with an elaborate reissue plan rather than just put them out. There'll be a whole media circus. And what's the best way to sell get people interested in three  Beatles films they probably already own? Put out Let It Be and Magical Mystery Tour at around the same time, and encourage people to buy the whole set. From a commercial point of view it makes absolute sense.

Actually, Michael Lindsay-Hogg indicated that MMT would be coming out first, which kind of ruins my theory, but let's ignore that for now.

As for all the stuff about the White Album fountain pen etc, that was Neil Aspinall basically being crap about licensing Beatles products. He undoubtedly did great things for the group, but towards the end he seemed to have a policy of saying no to mostly everything. They must have lost millions over the years by not remastering the CDs sooner.

Since Jeff Jones took over at Apple in 2007 they've been far more proactive about getting things to the fans – not just the remasters (Beatles, Lennon, Apple) but also the explosion of spin-off stuff at the Apple store (some good, some bad), Rock Band etc. The guy's clearly got his priorities right. I'd say now is probably the best time to be a Beatles fan since the Anthology period – they're mining this stuff for commercial opportunities and it'd be extremely remiss if they ignored the films.

Beatles Examiner reports that in a recent interview Ringo said that whilst Let It Be will be released at some point there are no plans at the moment and its not being discussed. No real surprise and would he tell us if there were anyway.

Ringo also  discussed new projects. "“Everything that the Beatles ever did, that we were involved in, is out. What isn't out?” But asked about all the Beatles' unreleased concerts on bootlegs,  he said, “Well, there's the Hollywood Bowl, Shea, what else is there?"".

Which brought to to mind Monty Pythons 'What Did The Romans Ever Do For Us' sketch from The Life of Brian.

"Apart from:

Shea

Hollywood Bowl

Promos

Christmas Fan Club Messages

Unplugged '68 demo's

Film and Studio Outtakes

Let It Be dvd

& the Complete Rooftop Concert,

what else is there that isnt out there already?"
