What about Let It Be?
|The Beatles in the studio – soon the picture will be clearer.|
Okay, so now part of the cat is out of the bag – but most of it is still in. The Beatles:Get Back is the new Peter Jackson film, it will be out on theatrical release in USA on September 4th, and we are lead to believe the full 42 minutes of the rooftop concert will be in it. Great.
So what about Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia & Oceania and the rest of the world? The Beatles are catering very much to the U.S.A. market these days, and the rest of us are left behind.
Also, how can we get hold of Get Back, except for seeing it in a cinema? Surely, there should be a home video edition at some point, perhaps television showings, streaming video and what not.
Ah, but here’s another clue for you all: One other thing the press release fails to mention is the accompanying book for the film, currently listed on Amazon in several countries, The Beatles:Get Back. Due to be published on October 6, 2020 – this may be a hint as to when we can expect the televised documentary, or perhaps a home video release.
So just how will Michael Lindsay-Hogg’s restored 1970 “Let It Be” film be made available? A lot of fans are worried that a further delay ultimately will just kill off the release completely.
What about the album? Will we see a 50th anniversary remixed boxed set of the “Let It Be” album, and when?
Roger Friedman wrote on Feb 28 that no work has been done yet on the mixing, remixing and so on of the original album, the original movie’s soundtrack, or the Peter Jackson documentary. Those mixing sessions are set for this July.
