    The visuals really do look fabulous. Whatever he did to that film is really working from my point of view. This put a big smile on my face first thing this morning- especially the little snippet where John huge Ringo.

    They seem like...a band. Not dour geniuses on a pedestal, a band. So many situations I recognize from playing with other musicians. The normal stuff that happens when you make music together! :)

    IT's taken me a few hours to absord this. I'm blown away by the remastering. John looks like a person, not an icon. (They all do). And it's great to see them having fun, in what were, by the accounts I've read, difficult and tense sessions sometimes.

    Been looking forward to this since it was announced. What immediately hit me about this preview was the difference from "This was a drag" to "This is fun".

    This was my takeaway as well, especially knowing that their relationships were heading toward the rocks at that point.

    I will certainly see this and probably own it at some point.

    Me, if I was there then "So, tell me Yoko, what are your thoughts?"

    No!No!......I don't wish anyone here any harm.
    In fact, I think there's a huge backstory to the resentment and vitriol we get from BT, sometimes. In fact, if it weren't any of my business, I would have long ago encouraged therapy and counselling to figure out where that massive chip-on-his-shoulder came from. But self immolation? Nah.....my faith compels me to believe in redemption. ;)

    It's great to see a counter-point to the oft-described tense atmosphere that prevailed in the Let It Be filming. There is an underlying friendship and bond of shared experience that saw them through at least long enough to hit their walk-off home run: Abbey Road.

    It doesn't look like the hatefest, it was made out to be.

    I think it's important to point out that most of the original 1970 movie takes place at Twickenham Studio. It was cold, not set up for proper recording and filming started early in the morning. I've got several hours of Get Back session bootlegs...the stuff recorded there is dull, lifeless and sloppy. George leaving helped force a location change to Apple's basement studio...which was unfinished and useless, Google Magic Alex for that story...that idiot is a film in itself. Equipment was brought in from EMI...and Billy Preston was invited by George to join in. Rewatch the 1970 Let It Be movie and you can see an immediate upswing in mood and performances.
    All in all, the friction is slightly blown out of proportion due to legend...and The Beatles themselves. John's recollections later, especially that horribly spiteful Rolling Stone interview, painted a poor picture. McCartney wasn't big on it because he realized later he "didn't come off well"...but the tension is still there. George was tired of being the 'junior' writer at a point where he clearly wasn't. John & Yoko dancing around to "I Me Mine" was funny in the original film, but it was also John avoiding George's song. He didn't like them and told George on several occasions during that time period...butchering them on early takes when he did play. If anyone had a right to be pissed off during the sessions, it was George. About 30-40% of what appeared on "All Things Must Pass" was rejected outright or attempted and quickly dropped by Paul & John during these sessions.

    Still, I can't wait to see the new release because I think it's going to focus more on the band in the Apple Studio & features more if not all of the rooftop concert. It also doesn't have that grainy look of the '70 release...but that's what happens when a 16mm film TV project is blown up to 35mm theatrical release. But that was Allen Klein's doing.

    I think McCartney climbed new heights on Mount Hubris in thinking that none of Harrison’s other songs were as worthy of being on a Beatles album as “Maxwell’s Silver Hammer”... but that’s me.
