This afternoon.

Just ‘dropped’

Not another trailer, but the first official ‘clip’ (yes) from Peter Jackson’s forthcoming Get Back, a six-hour documentary on the making of Let It Be, in which the band, featuring a very glum Ringo, grimly attempt to put ‘down’ album track ‘I’ve Got A Feeling’ while Yoko knits nearby.

Lovable moptops.

This afternoon.

Just ‘dropped’.

The first official trailer for Get Back, Peter Jackson’s six-hour docu-series on The Beatles made entirely from never-before-seen, restored footage filmed during the making of 1970 documentary feature ‘Let It Be‘.

Six hours.

Bed-in!

Release date: November 25, 26, and 27, on Disney+

While the people featured in the iconic cover art collage of The Beatles’ ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’, are all well documented, Chris Shaw went one step further and tracked down all the source imagery. To wit:

The collage was designed by Peter Blake and his wife Jann Haworth, and the cut-outs were assembled in Michael Cooper’s London photographic studio. Michael and his team toiled hard to construct the ‘cast of extras’, using a mix of photos sourced from the BBC Hulton Picture Library, images from private collections, waxworks and personal artifacts, including a gnome owned by Ringo Starr

“Yesterday, COVID-19 seemed so far away,
Now it looks as though it’s here to stay,
Oh I believe in yesterday.

Suddenly, there’s not half the shops there used to be,
And there’s slippers where my shoes should be,
Oh yesterday, came suddenly.

Why it had to grow, I don’t know,
We couldn’t say,
While we stay at home,
How I long for yesterday.

Yesterday, love was such an easy game to play,
My girlfriend lives more than 2k away
Oh how I long for yesterday.

Why it had to grow, I don’t know,
We couldn’t say,
While I stay at home,
How I long for yesterday.

Anyway, we have lots and lots of games to play,
And we have a place to hide away,
Tomorrow there’ll be brighter days.’

 My Dad came up with the idea and we finished it together (remotely) over the last few days. I thought it would be fun to record and share :)

In fairness.

This morning.

Abbey Road, London.

Thrilled to bits to be able to bring my original Abbey Road album back to the source at Studio 2, Abbey Road where it was recorded 50 years ago….
