This remarkable double DVD set presents the serious Beatles collector with what can truly be considered as a
definitive “Get Back” DVD document. Years in the making, Picture Perfect offer a comprehensive collection of
Get Back material as its never been seen before!
Running close to three and a half hours in total, it features not only the entire “Get Back” video album in crystal clear remastered picture and sound but also a plethora of bonus material from the Apple Studios from January 23rd to the 29th 1969, Twickenham Film Studios in the first two weeks of January and plenty of other seldom seen footage.
Get Back - Stereo Video Album:
The Get Back recording sessions:
Headlining the package are 46 minutes of recording sessions from two productive
days at Apple Studios January 23 & 25, 1969. January 23 was devoted almost entirely to creating the song “Get Back”
and here we get a fly on the wall view into the recording process. We see the Beatles chat, joke, tune, rehearse
and try some serious attempts at recording the song. Over 75% of this footage has not been seen in this form,
meaning inferior copies of some of this footage has circulated, but contained few moments of audio that matched the film.
Here Picture Perfect present all the footage with correct audio painstakingly researched from hours of Nagra audio reels.
This process required studying silent footage and finding the bits of sound required to sync to film.
Highlights of the January 1969 footage include:
Note: The recording sessions listed above now appear for the first time from the master source tape for this material. Any previous release of this material has come from a 3rd generation VHS with incorrect audio. Also please note, this is not the Get Back session footage that concentrates on John and Yoko. This footage contains shots of all four Beatles from both A&B cameras.
The Beatles can be seen and heard saying that they are packing it in for the night and thus ends the day’s session.
Winter Of Discontent
Also included: LET IT BE… NAKED promotional reel. This material was produced by Apple in 2003, and contains some incredible colour footage from the January sessions.
Special Bonus tracks: With the January 30th rooftop concert being the last filmed Beatles concert, Picture Perfect thought they would
include some truly rare footage from the Beatles first professionally filmed performance at the Cavern club on August 22nd, 1962.
Upgraded DVD Features – Picture Perfect has overhauled the old static menus by adding interactive menus screens and
Chapter pages that are easy to navigate and read. Artwork themes from several Get Back / Let It Be covers have been combined
to create unique artwork with special detail given to correct colours and special fonts. Double sided artwork and booklet enhance
the package with plenty of rare photos and track listing information.
