This has got to be the biggest event for Beatles fans since the ‘Anthology’ series was announced. And for once Apple and Disney have played it perfectly with the build-up where details have slowly came out and massively met what the hardcore fans have been fantasising over for possibly decades. Hours and hours of unseen never before never bootlegged footage!! It’s this type of release that sees those fans very willingly throwing the cash without much hesitation or grumbles.

I think the only way this will ever be topped is if Apple ever open the vaults and let us hear what remains unreleased musically with little restriction.

  

I agree with that. It’s new footage of The Beatles and at such a historically important time in their careers. Not just hearing them, but seeing them in the flesh doing their thing. Pretty hard to top that. I’d watch everything if I could, so I just hope Jackson selected the best footage from the pile.

New Disney+ ad for Get Back :

And published by The Guardian today:

The Beatles, Get Back and London: on the trail of a timeless story
In early 1969, John, Paul, George and Ringo worked on a project in London that would result in an amazing performance on a West End rooftop, and some of their most-loved songs. The story is captured in the new documentary series Get Back . In a film specially commissioned by Apple Corps, John Harris and John Domokos follow the Beatles’ steps, get immersed in their archive, and do what the Fab Four’s film-makers did – talk to the public

Includes the first glimpses of the restored Let It Be .

Looks like there’s going to be a bit of swearing included in the documentary which is a bit unusual for Disney. So perhaps they’ll include Paul’s f***face exchange?

Good to see. 

Apple have also been cutting out naughty words, eg John’s “Oh shit! Wrong chord.” being absent from the 2018 demo of ‘HIAWG’ that was included on ‘Anthology 3 ’ in 1996.
Presumably they don’t want a caution note on streaming platforms.

Very interesting interview with Peter Jackson from a couple of days ago, done for Discovery NZ’s Newshub…

A couple of points I found of particular note were his comments on just how well they able to separate the different elements of the Nagra tapes, even down to being able to split John and Paul’s vocals (which gives another reason for annoyance at the Let It Be “50th Anniversary”, that the Nagra recordings used on that are in mono while Jackson seems to suggest they were able to split them enough to do stereo mixes), and the idea that the problem with the original film wasn’t that the footage was miserable and showed a band in the early stages of splitting up, but that it was edited at a time they were miserable and were splitting up.

I am salivating at the thought of machine learning sound equipment that may finally allow something to be properly released from the Twickenham tapes. If it’s capable of unpicking them, revealing hidden conversations never meant to be heard and allow proper cinematic 7.1, 5.1 and stereo mixing of songs recorded roughly onto mono tapes imagine what it might potentially do for the Star Club stuff.

I can see a Get Back album coming, best of the sessions on a couple of discs and the rooftop concert on the third.

It’s an excellent mini documentary. I especially loved hearing a bit of the Eight Days A Week cover by the guy’s daughter at 10.20 in the video and the family walking the Abbey Road crossing at the end.

Another interesting interview with Jackson ahead of its release this week.

Among the things he reveals are that not only is that moment between Paul and George included, with Jackson believing it was the editing of the original that made it more frosty than it really was:

The whole conversation was about 90 minutes, and we have eight or nine minutes of it, with that exchange in the middle. It’s nowhere near as bad.

but that it also includes George walking out on the 10th.

Anyone thinking this is going to be a whitewash, think again. I didn’t want to hold back or sanitise anything, but there was a very positive reaction from everyone, even if some of them said parts of it were stressful to watch.

Have no idea on the source for this as it doesn’t appear on the Beatles Vevo, but stumbled across this footage of them working on Don’t Let Me Down in the basement at Savile Row, described as a publicity clip, and posted on Movie Roar on 20 November.

According to here

Starting Thursday, November 25, on Thanksgiving Day, The Beatles: Get Back  will be available to all Disney Plus subscribers to stream without paying an extra charge. Since the documentary is a three-part series, only the first episode will be available on that day, with the second available on Friday, Nov. 26, and the third on Saturday, Nov. 27. Each episode will be available at 12 a.m. PT (3 a.m. ET) on their release dates.

Which converts, I believe, to 8am in the UK. 

So it will be available Thursday morning.

Right?

I’m working Friday so will watch that episode upon getting back home and won’t be looking online to ensure no spoilers so nothing is spoiled by other people’s opinions. If i’m not around for a few days it’s because I’ve entered a white hole.

If that’s true, that’s even better! 6 hours has been stated to be what the series would be. More is definitely better! This put is on a length on par with the Anthology series.

From ‘Collier‘ (I couldn’t find anything on ‘The Daily Beatle’)

While its three parts were originally announced to span six hours, the series will clock in at close to eight, Collider can exclusively reveal. Peter Jackson confirmed the runtime in an upcoming interview with Collider, which will be available to watch in the coming days.

Episode-specific timings are as follows:

  • Part one is 157 minutes.
  • Part two is 173 minutes.
  • Part three is 138 minutes.

All in all, that’s enough time to give Abbey Road ten spins (and change) on the decks.

 

For me it will be going to bed on Saturday morning at around 1:30am after watching part two, wake-up and watch part three and then spend most of Sunday watching the whole damn thing again in one big marathon, only breaking for the Chelsea v Man U game and fresh air. It’s not a bad way to spend the weekend. 

 

Has there been any breakdown on what each part will cover? I presume part one covers (on the whole) Twickenham, part two Apple studios and part three the rooftop concert and the final recordings of ‘Let It Be ‘, Two of Us’ and ‘The Long And Winding Road ‘. 

 

One extra I would love to see when the home release comes out is some kind of video album for the ‘LIB ‘ tracks. Have it all stripped back to the original performances before the overdubs etc, although ‘IMM’ would be difficult as it was recorded in 1970. Would certainly want complete performances of many of the tracks easily accessible as there is so little footage of the Beatles playing away from in-concert.

You’ve definitely hit the nail on the head about how to spend the weekend. It’s the best Thanksgiving I’ve ever had!

I certainly also would like a video album for the tracks as well, and I can see that happening for the Blu-ray. Also, since, spanning back to the original 2020 cinema release plan, a remastered official version of the Michael Lindsay-Hogg film for a Blu-ray release was announced, I imagine Apple is planning to stick with that, even if won’t necessarily be simultaneous anymore. Either way, to have both documentaries available as a record to compare and contrast, and then throw it in the pot with the Anthology, First U.S. Visit and Eight Days A Week documentaries, it all adds to one hell of a treasure trove for all Beatles fans worldwide. 

While we’re never going to have a massive anticipation wave like this or the Anthology campaign again, I certainly imagine that further live releases will come down the pike, including finally having an official release of the Shea Stadium concert, which is the real remaining Holy Grail for the fans at this point.

I’ve not bothered with the ‘EDAW’ documentary since I saw it in the cinema as it was a major letdown to what the original premise was. There are so many flaws in what we ended up with, especially the pop-up celebrity heads (something I hate to see), and the colourised live footage was a mess. To also not have a live concert included to watch was a massive oversight; even if not Shea then Washington or Melbourne ’64, Paris ’65 or even one of the Japan ’66 shows just to give us something. I think we ended up with five bonus tracks as an extra, all colourised, which was just lame. The six song mini-concert at ‘Blackpool’ 65 would have been a better choice and most of that was in the ‘Anthology’ series.
