Hello!

Long time lurker, first time poster. I had to join this wonderful forum to share my project as well as be an active member here.

I'm not sure how many of you have heard of "The Get Back Chronicles", but for those who haven't, it's a bootleg released by Fab Productions which attempts to sync the roughly 3 hours of Get Back footage to the correct audio. I've had all three volumes of this on my iPhone and I watch them constantly. Over time, I've noticed areas of poor syncing, missing footage, footage from different days synced to different audio, etc.

I love video editing and syncing stuff to correct audio (like Zeppelin's 3 night stand at MSG which was used to construct The Song Remains the Same), so I took on the challenge to correctly match the audio to the video. If you want to track my progress on this, check at the dropbox link below:

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/e4r1xl2hhs07vk4/9CZmVwJ_l8

Currently I have the first two days and will definitely update once other days have been added. I'm also open to other video projects involving The Beatles so let me know if anybody is interested.

All footage is sourced from the three volumes of The Get Back Chronicles and the audio from Purple Chick's "A/B Road" release. There is a chance that footage from Let it Be that didn't make it to the bootleg will be included as well.

Enjoy!

Impressive stuff.  

How long has the first 2 days taken you and how long do you think will it take to complete the rest of the footage?

Do you not get depressed watching the footage and listening to the recordings as it wasn't the most joyous time of their career?

Thanks!

1) Usually about a day or two, depending on my time with school, music conflicts, etc. The most difficult part is finding audio to pick out from 5 hours and syncing it to 4 minutes of footage. As for the time when everything will be complete, that will hopefully be the end of the month or early-mid October. The reason why I'm releasing this all individually is because so everyone won't have to wait a long time and only receive samples and such.

2) Somewhat. Depends on the recording day. You can hear some internal strain when the Beatles are somewhat refusing to work with George on All Things Must Pass, but there are some very enjoyable moments (such as Paul and Ringo's piano jam).

Thanks to all!

1/6 is in the works. Not sure how long will be... The audio is all over the place. But definitely in a day or two.

1/6/1969 is rendering now. Audio is not perfect, but it's the best I can do with picking out small segments of multi-hour audio clips of The Beatles rehearsing.

If any of you haven't been following my progress, I'm on 1/22 now and also in the progress of doing over 1/2.

1/13 and 1/14 will be added when 1/22 and 1/2 are added.

Keep up the great work.  I am currently listening through A/B road and would love to see this footage matched up.  You are doing a great service to the Beatles community for doing this.

Hi ctlw83, how are you getting on listening to A/B Road? Are you listening day by day in order and if so how far on are you, what are thoughts? Not many have listened the whole way thru so if you achieve it then you should be very proud of yourself.

I'm just listening to the A/B road in order.  I'm not doing 1 day = 1 real day.  I get to listen to music and such while I work so, I can sometimes get through a whole "day" of A/B Road in less than a day.

Overall, I think the sound quality is decent considering that this would appear to be a minidisc rip of the mono tapes themselves.  The only issue I have is when people are talking far away from the microphone while music is being played.  Can't hear a darn thing.

Content wise, I think McCartney pushed too hard in Twickenham.  He pushed too hard about the concert and was pretty rough on George, although, it was Lennon who finally set him off.

In the EMI/Apple basement studio, things seem much improved.  I am on to January 22nd and the mood seems to be better.

I am mightly impressed as many have tried to get thru it and failed due to the endless jams and rehearsals so forgive my questioning.

So what are your highlights of the days you've got thru and is there anything in there that you would recommend thats not so obvious a selection. I've listened to most of Thirty Days which is a struggle at times but compared to A/B Road its a walk in the park (17 cd to 83 or whatever it is).

 

One further question theme: are you doing this for a project or just as a Beatle fan (or where you looking for punishment in your life and found this to be the best method)?

For me, I love seeing/hearing the behind the scenes kind of stuff for music and movies that I like.  When I discovered there was a comprehensive source of studio recordings during one of the most historically interesting periods in Beatles music and for the group in terms of relationship between the members, it was a no-brainer to get ahold of it.

For me, it is about hearing the process of the music being developed and hearing the interaction in the studio.  I don't see it as a marathon or some special goal for me to obtain by listening to A/B Road.  It is more along the lines of wanting to see and hear the history of the group and the music.  As I said, it is really just a no-brainer.

I wonder if the video footage could be made more presentable using filters in VirtualDub or Avisyth.  However, I am not skilled in those applications.

And I thought interest was lost from this forum!

There's been a bit of major updating on this project. I've redone each day with the best available footage/audio and working close with someone whos quite experienced with the footage. I'll get new sample footage here when I get on a computer. Basically, the project is being slowed down and done right. I have about a fifth of the project done, depending on if I wait on the Blu-ray or not.

To answer your question Mustard, I'm doing it as both. I love The Beatles and I love video editing. I love mixing my two favorite passions: video editing and music.

Sorry for the late update everyone!

What is is that Lennon did that set George - specifically - do you have dialogue? Quotes? I've never seen or heard any actual content of what this argument was about. thanks

I have never been convinced by the assertion that it was something John said that caused George to walk out, though I know some sources claim it.

I don't even believe it was entirely Paul's fault, though do feel the disagreement over the guitar in Two of Us was the final straw.

I have always felt, looking at the various statements made over the years, that it was more the general atmosphere at the time though, and George's mood.

There is discussion elsewhere on the forum about George and depression, and I think there's a reasonable amount of evidence that George was suffering from depression in January 1969.

What do we know with a reasonable amount of certainty about the events of 10 January 1969?

The morning was spent concentrating on two Paul songs, Get Back and Two of Us. According to Michael Lindsay-Hogg, watching George, he could tell something was brewing. He requested that one of his soundmen hide a microphone in a flowerpot in the room where there would all shortly break for lunch, thinking something was about to happen.

George wasn't there at the beginning of lunch (my assumption, though without any evidence at all, is that he was probably making a phone call — maybe to Patti, maybe to someone else — about what he was thinking).

He arrived in the lunch room at around the end of the first course and stood there silently for a few moments before saying, “See you 'round the clubs,” and leaving.

John's response following George's exit, according to Lindsay-Hogg (whose hidden mike picked up nothing more than the sound of cutlery on china and muffled voices), was to say, “Let's get in Eric. He's just as good and not such a headache.”

As I say, I think it was a combination of many things, but do not believe the claim that there was some ill-tempered or tetchy exchange of words between John and George after the Paul and George, “I'll play what you want me to play, or I won't play at all...” exchange.

I've always thought George was annoyed by John being largely silent or indifferent when discussing anything, even his (John's) own songs (not helped by being stoned a lot of the time), and that he was with Yoko 24/7, even bringing her into the studio. John would also often let Yoko speak on his behalf. The argument they had was probably a build-up of all of this (despite reports at the time John and George never got in an actual fight, they even laugh at a newspaper report of such an event happening during the rehearsals (i forget which date and can't find it in the books)).

Paul and George had spent most of the 7th January arguing whilst John and Ringo sat in the background saying very little and George said a few times during the rehearsals that he didn't want to offer his songs for consideration due to the disdain he felt (rightly in my opinion) John and Paul showed them, and on top of that he felt that the others needed someone else to play the parts they were wanting for their songs (at one point point saying that they needed Eric Clapton).

George has openly said he found the sessions to be hell right from the start so leaving was probably something he thought of doing a number of times before he actually did.

They are really good and great to watch. Fabulous job. Must have taken ages to put it all together. Thanks for the postings.

Do you have any idea when the Twickenham material is coming and where we will be able to find it? Do you have your own site or will it be a case of having to hunt it down like when new unofficial music on bootlegs are released?
