In an recently, Paul McCartney talked about the documentary, saying:
“I am really happy that Peter [Jackson] has delved into our archives to make a film that shows the truth about The Beatles recording together. The friendship and love between us comes over and reminds me of what a crazily beautiful time we had.”
In an interview for The Bealtes’ SiriusXM channel, Ringo Starr has also talked about it, saying:
“Peter is great and it was so cool looking at all this footage. There was hours and hours of us just laughing and playing music. Not at all like the version that came out. There was a lot of joy and I think Peter will show that. I think this version will be a lot more peace and loving, like we really were.”
Beatles “Let It Be”
Let It Be is the twelfth and final studio album by the Beatles. It was released on 8 May 1970, almost a month after the group’s break-up, in tandem with the motion picture of the same name. Like most of the band’s previous releases. The album topped record charts in many countries, including both the US and the UK. However, the critical response was generally unfavourable. So Let It Be came to be regarded as one of the most controversial rock albums in history.
Rehearsals began at Twickenham Film Studios in January 1969 as part of a planned documentary showing the Beatles’ return to live performance. Paul McCartney conceived the project as an attempt to reinvigorate the band by returning to simpler rock and roll configurations. Also the filmed rehearsals were marked by ill feeling, leading to George Harrison’s temporary departure from the group.
Besides, as a condition of his return, the members reconvened at their own Apple Studio with guest keyboardist Billy Preston. The project then yielded a single public concert held impromptu on the studio’s rooftop on 30 January, from which three of the album’s tracks were drawn.
