Released for streaming only (not that that stops people! ahdn_john_08_gifa-hard-days-night-george-10) on Apple Music, Spotify and Deezer on the 27 February 2022 in the United States, Canada and others in those time zones, the 28 February 2022 in the United Kingdom, Europe, etc., the complete unedited rooftop performance (mixed by Giles Martin and Sam Okell) from the 30 January 1969, coinciding with its 53rd anniversary.

Because of the IMAX showing, we knew they were celebrating this anniversary of the rooftop, along with the success of the Get Back  project as a whole – which some had their worries over at the beginning, but the release of an audio album, if only for streaming, was unexpected. A well sat upon surprise with no rumours I heard beforehand.

I think that because its the centerpiece of any soundtrack release for Get Back , interesting that its streaming only. Imagine if this was a full release, and then a few months later, maybe alongside the extended Get Back  DVD/Blu-ray release, we get a CD/Blu-ray/vinyl/digital etc. etc. accompanying soundtrack across several discs, one of which would need to be the rooftop were it to be a real soundtrack of Jackson’s docuseries. Tease us for free, knowing you’re releasing soon enough anyway, or release it as a standalone and face the anger and annoyance when it turns up as part of a much fuller set a little later.

The mix is fantastic. Totally in your face, you can feel the wind whipping around the rooftop. Ringo’s drums are like a bulldozer much of the time. Every one of them, absolute fire!!!

I’ve heard the rooftop a lot before today, as I suspect many of you have, but now I’ve really heard it… about a half-a-dozen times so far…

I thought you could also buy it, but it looks like it is in fact streaming only.

Of course, clocking in at 38 and a half minutes, it’s isn’t quite as complete as it could be, since the boys were on the roof for 46 and a half minutes (Get Back  has around 42 minutes).

The Daily Beatle gives us a nice breakdown of the rooftop, what’s new, what’s missing, what can be found where, here.
