    That's just a mistake made by the general media when this was in the news. They thought it was film reels from the Get Back recordings, but it was in fact tape reels.

    Michael Lindsay-Hogg has been interviewed by Esquire magazine about the 1+ DVD. He was obviously asked about Let It Be and he had this to say:

    Esquire: It has been years since the film Let It Be has been shown in the U.S. Will we ever see it again?

    Lindasy-Hogg: Apple has the definitive word in this. Let It Be is ready to go but it probably will be 18 months at the earliest. My hope is that it will be the original movie, which looks and sounds great.

    I was glad that "Because I Know You Love Me So" was included on the bonus "Naked" disc; I've always wanted to know where it, and some of the other Nagra songs ("Woke Up In The Morning", "Won't You Please Say Goodbye") figured in their history. They seemed like early songs, one of the many they never "reckoned" or "recorded". Mebbe they were noted somewhere, but I ain't never seen nuttin 'bout them nowhere.

    Nice to see the story come out at last. Yellow Dog always went out of their way to put out quality stuff with nice covers, etc. The early BBC lp's were especially great, and set new standards at the time.

    Yellow Dog were quality releases, brought me a lot of joy… hours of stuff I would never have got to hear via Apple.
    It's good to know deze twee Nederlanders were putting out discs made straight from the tapes. Shows they cared about the content.

    At the time this story was first printed in 2003, I don't believe the accused were quoted as having any comment. Its interesting to read that they actually purchased these tapes from someone they saw as an agent of Apple. I love the Day by Day series and had started collecting them a few years before the arrests. I still need the last five volumes of the original silver pressed CDs so I keep looking. A lot more fun than downloading and cheap CD-rs.

    Yellow Dog's Day by Day series is wonderful . Only a label as passionate about The Beatles and their hardcore fans would make available such an exhaustive archive. I wish the guys well in their legal endeavor.

    You honestly have to ask what good are these tapes doing behind a locked gate at Apple? I just don't get it. Why not release every single tape to fans who clearly want to hear this stuff. The Rockband multi-tracks are probably the greatest release in over a decade. To hear the sounds and vocals never heard before was astounding. We have already lost John and George. What is the point of keeping them locked up?

    What good are these tapes doing locked behind a gate at Apple collecting dust? We've already lost two of the Beatles why not release all of these tapes to fans who clearly do want to hear this stuff.

    Why not release the content of what’s on these tapes to the public? If you listen to the full almost 100 hours tapes and compare it to the 6 hours recently released on DVD you have the answer. I will not give the reasons here but it is obvious. Not rocket science.
