Transport yourself back to January 1969, the onset of The Beatles' final chapter as a band. With their seminal "White Album" atop the charts, the iconic quartet converges in London for a new venture. Over a span of 21 days, they immerse themselves first at Twickenham Film Studios and later at their newly minted Apple Studios. Every moment is meticulously documented by cameras and tape recorders, capturing the band's rehearsals of a plethora of songs. The crescendo? Their legendary rooftop concert atop their office building, effectively bringing central London to a standstill.

 

"The Beatles: Get Back" chronicles these historic sessions through verbatim transcripts of the band's unguarded discussions. Renowned music writer John Harris meticulously distills over 120 hours of audio recordings, providing readers with an intimate glimpse into the studio environment.

 

Complementing the text are hundreds of previously unpublished images captured by privileged insiders Ethan A. Russell and Linda Eastman (soon to become Mrs. McCartney), alongside high-resolution film frames sourced from Peter Jackson's forthcoming documentary.

 

While lore suggests that these sessions marked a tumultuous period for a band on the brink of dissolution, acclaimed novelist Hanif Kureishi asserts otherwise in his introduction. He contends that this period was, in fact, a fertile ground for creativity, yielding some of The Beatles' most enduring work. Through this volume, readers are afforded a rare opportunity to witness the genesis of their beloved songs, replete with false starts, improvisations, and epiphanies. As the curtain falls on fifty years since their final performance, "The Beatles: Get Back" offers a comprehensive testament to the band's unparalleled artistic genius and enduring legacy.
