Publisher's Summary

The recording sessions for Let It Be actually began as rehearsals for a proposed return to live stage work for the Beatles, to be inaugurated in a concert at a Roman amphitheatre in Tunisia.

In this thoroughly researched book, Steve Matteo delves deep into the complex history of these sessions. He talks to a number of people who were in the studio with the Beatles, recording the sights and sounds of the band at work - bringing to life a period in the Beatles' career that was creative and chaotic in equal measure.

Great Book

I'm a Beatles nut. This book takes you through the unknown phase of Let It Be, (The Get Back Sessions.) I know a lot about the Boys but this was a big eye opener. Listin to this Beatles Fan.

The Struggle to Criticize Gods

Rosy aura sprayed over mediocrity accomplishment of the best that ever were at what they did. To understand this statement, listen to the White Album all the way through. Then listen to Let It Be al the way through. Then listen to Abbey Road all the way to the end. You cannot but appreciate the unpolished half- hearted accomplishment that Let It Be is as an inferior thing inserted between two incredible pieces of musical creation. The cool details are always fun to learn but the time, effort and the result was basically lame.

For Those Who Can't Get Enough Beatles Stories...

...like me. Not a particularly insightful analysis of the Fab Four's most undervalued album, but pretty compelling.
