Get Back


I haven’t seen any of the new Peter Jackson Beatles documentary, but this clip is pretty amazing. It’s from a January 7, 1969 studio session, that starts with Paul McCartney apparently aimlessly jamming on his guitar like a sky high college sophomore. 35 seconds in George Harrison unleashes a huge yawn. Fifteen seconds later something starts to happen:

There’s an excellent wiki entry on the genesis and recording of the song, which features Billy Preston on keyboards.

BTW McCartney is all of 26 years old in this clip, and the Beatles have only a few months left to live.
