Yes, the site is back in business. And while I was away, we got a wonderful edit of the Let it Be sessions from Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson, now available on Disney+. With over eight hours of footage from the sixty our corpus from Michael Lindsay-Hogg we got a complete narrative on how the album developed, how the songs included were developed, as well as how some songs which made it onto Abbey Road or some solo works post Beatles came about.
One of the more interesting bits is how Isn’t it a Pity is heard in the credits to the first episode, how the anvil is brought in for Maxwell’s Silver Hammer, how Ringo came up with Octopus’s Garden with George listening intently, how George wrote the bridge to Something before the main song, a take of All Things Must Pass, the original political protest version of Get Back, and how the band worried when George went AWOL. My only nit is the riff from I Want You in the rooftop concert couldn’t be heard because of the interviews below. And I would have liked to have Hear Me Lord included from the sessions. Shame on you, Peter.
Overall, a most joyous eight hours of my life!
Meanwhile, this server is back bit not for long. I plan to move TimeHorse.com to OpalStack in the coming month so stay tuned for that.
