Newly Expanded & Remastered Abbey Rd. Coming in November


Recommended Posts

Interesting to see what happens with Get Back / Let It Be. As those sessions are also 50 years old the sound recordings will be out of copyright next year and fair game for a flood of unofficial releases if there's no official release.

I think he means a necessary evil in order to extend the copyright on them by 20 years.

A great amount of the videos from those sessions have been turned over to Peter Jackson for a "new" documentary.  I would expect the majority of the Let It Be film to appear if Paul gets off his high horse and lets it come out.  Probably in conjunction with the demos/remastering.

Their track record with the archive box sets is impressive.  No barrel scraping so far.

In September 1969 the Beatles were planning a new album...

Fascinating stuff..

........we hear John suggesting that each of them should bring in songs as candidates for the single. He also proposes a new formula for assembling their next album: four songs apiece from Paul, George and himself, and two from Ringo – “If he wants them.” John refers to “the Lennon-and-McCartney myth”, clearly indicating that the authorship of their songs, hitherto presented to the public as a sacrosanct partnership, should at last be individually credited.

Then Paul – sounding, shall we say, relaxed – responds to the news that George now has equal standing as a composer with John and himself by muttering something mildly provocative. “I thought until this album that George’s songs weren’t that good,” he says, which is a pretty double-edged compliment since the earlier compositions he’s implicitly disparaging include Taxman and While My Guitar Gently Weeps. There’s a nettled rejoinder from George: “That’s a matter of taste. All down the line, people have liked my songs.”

John reacts by telling Paul that nobody else in the group “dug” his Maxwell’s Silver Hammer, a song they’ve just recorded for Abbey Road, and that it might be a good idea if he gave songs of that kind – which, John suggests, he probably didn’t even dig himself – to outside artists in whom he had an interest, such as Mary Hopkin, the Welsh folk singer. “I recorded it,” a drowsy Paul says, “because I liked it.”
