the beatles — Page 4

Never thought such a thing could happen while Paul and Ringo are still around. There had been rumors they didn’t want any of that unused footage to see the light of day. Let It Be hasn’t had a video release since the early 80’s. I think MTV showed it once during a Beatles weekend in the early 90’s. At least the days of insane prices for the VHS/Beta/Laserdisc are at an end.

I wish something like this could happen to many hours of documentary footage shot for The Shining and Full Metal Jacket.

50 years ago today they released their final masterpiece. Happy ‘Abbey Road’ Day everyone.
 

Here Comes The Sun

 

And in the end,
the love you take
Is equal to the love you make.
 

Thanks the reminder, Ray 😃

Album: Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Club Band

Song: Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da or Her Comes the Sun or In My Life

"Pleasure’s fun. It’s great, but you can’t keep it going forever; just accept the fact that it’s here and it’s gone, and maybe then again, it will come back, and you’ll get to do it again. Joy lasts forever. Pleasure is purely self-centered. It’s all about your pleasure: it’s about you. It’s a selfish, self-centered emotion, that is created by a self-centered motive of greed. Joy is compassion. Joy is giving yourself to somebody else, or something else. And it’s a kind of thing that is, in its subtlety and lowness, much more powerful than pleasure. You get hung up on pleasure; you’re doomed. If you pursue joy; you will find everlasting happiness.” - George Lucas

The Beatles: Get Back - A Sneak Peek from Peter Jackson’:-

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UocEGvQ10OE - 5 minute video from the official The Beatles youtube channel.
 

The blurb: 'Jackson said, “We wanted to give the fans of The Beatles all over the world a holiday treat, so we put together this five-minute sneak peek at our upcoming theatrical film ‘The Beatles: Get Back.’ We hope it will bring a smile to everyone’s faces and some much-needed joy at this difficult time.”

Acclaimed filmmaker Peter Jackson’s “The Beatles: Get Back” is a unique cinematic experience that takes audiences back in time to The Beatles’ intimate recording sessions during a pivotal moment in music history…’
 

Very much looking forward to this - hopefully at the theatres in August… (if life is a little more ‘back to normal’ and safe by then 😃)

Excited to see it. But I’m so disappointed in the awful DNR and AI upscaling they’ve done. It looks absolutely horrendous. Waxy, artificial, and very unsettling. Plus it’s cropped to 16:9. Such a shame, because I’m sure the raw source looks 100 times better. Oh well. Of course I’m still gonna watch every second of it though, it’s the Beatles. 😃 Glad we get to see it in any form.

There was this year’s, Mccartney 3,2,1 which I approached warily.
McCartney has had a history of attempting to retell events.
This brief series was quite well done, with host Rick Rubin keeping the topics on the music.
Song construction, retakes, editing, basslines.
While aimed at musicians, anyone can follow along, and the minimalist filming works well.
