THE GET BACK JOURNALS II
(The Twickenham Sessions)
From January 2nd to January 15th, 1969, The Beatles convened at Twickenham Studios in London for their first live performance in over two years. These rehearsals were extensively filmed and recorded, with nearly sixty hours of audio tape resulting. A mere twenty-three minutes were utilized in the film "Let It Be", and less than ten seconds appeared on the album of the same name.
Over the past twenty years, portions of the unused recordings have showed up with varying regularity.
While showcasing some unique performances and candid dialog, these releases were most often
haphazardly put together, with little regard to completeness or chronological order.
The booklet serves as a complete guide to all the available Twickenham performances and where they can be located. Everything is cross-referenced to the identification numbers assigned in the book "Drugs, Divorce and a Slipping Image" (which serves as the ultimate authority on all the "Get Back" sessions, Twickenham as well as Apple).
WHAT THIS SET IS, AND WHAT THIS SET ISN'T.
This set is a complement to Vigotone's 8CD set "The Get Back Journals". It seldom duplicates
material found on that set, but has been designed to replace many
of the "Get Back" session C.D.s out there, many of which are now out of print and
hard to find. In compiling this set, we have tried to keep this in mind, and have omitted
material which is widely and currently available elsewhere (for example, on Yellow Dog's
"Ultimate Collection" set).
My Comments :
There are European copies around which have faulty discs, whereby certain tracks end early and may have a huge sections
missing, they tick over the time but play blank. Unfortunately mine is one of these sets. BUT, in saying that, it is only
8 tracks out of 282, so to enjoy the rest of the set, and if one can't get an original, then
one must put up with this fact. These are the tracks that are affected: Disc One - 25, 33, 35, 36, 37; Disc Two - 19;
Disc Three - 15; Disc Five - 41.
