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

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.

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.

Bet the locals loved this. If you're ever in London, the battle between tourists and motorists for use of the road is the best free show in town.

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.”
