I should note that I'm much more of a Lennon fan than a McCartney fan (and I love Harrison despite his smaller output).

Yes, completely agree.  I guess it's not surprising that our 3 favourite albums are the same.

All things must pass by Harrison is very underrated.

Nearly all of my favourite Beatles songs are his. He's got such a small catalogue compared to the other two, but to the best of my knowledge, he didn't write a single bad song. (as I only own five 'proper' Beatles albums and 1, I'm not certain about this...)

Trying - and failing - to be Led Zepplin is telling in itself.

With the Beatles (no pun...) it makes no sense to even try.

I know. They already wrote and recorded all the catchy tunes that were still available >:D >:D

I'll contend that George's final album "Brainwashed" is hugely underrated.  It was 95% finished at the time of his death and completed by his son and producer Jeff Lynne (formally of the ELO).  It is an album of meaningful music, lovely melodies, some incredible slide guitar playing, and a spiritual message not found in music today.  Fantastic.

Do not believe it is complete....George, or someone else in the know, maybe you could finish it off.

Wow!  :o

If it's incomplete, I am sure that it's complete on the "Let it Be" movie. I don't have it.  :( That's one worth seeking out. I think I saw it once.

I can also check later and see how much of it is on The Beatles Anthology DVD. Looks like there's a track for it, but don't have the time right now. Later today, OK?  :)

I guess they played some of the songs on the roof multiple times....does this sound correct?

I wouldn't be surprised, but unfortunately, I know little about that show. I don't think it was released apart from the Movie and whatever happens to be on the Anthology.

The Beatles played five songs during the rooftop performance: "Get Back" (three times), "Don't Let Me Down" (twice), "I've Got a Feeling" (twice), "One After 909", and "Dig a Pony". (The Beatles also played a brief version of the British national anthem, "God Save the Queen" and a brief rehersal of "I Want You (She's So Heavy)" while second engineer Alan Parsons was changing tapes.)[3]

After the final song, McCartney is heard to say, "Thanks, Mo!" acknowledging the enthusiastic applause and cheering from Maureen Starkey. Then Lennon closes with the well-known remark, "I'd like to say 'thank you' on behalf of the group and ourselves, and I hope we passed the audition!"[3] This exchange was spliced on to the end of the Let It Be album.

Yeah, I thought that last line was classic!  8)

I really dunno where you'll find the complete tapes for that. Even the movie (OOP?) surely didn't have multiple takes of each song.  :)

I may be able to find that in NYC, or do you already have it?

Maybe down the Abbey road Paul will get behind an official release that this concert deserves with the proper packaging etc.  One can only hope. :)

I can ask around the village and see if there is a bootleg that comes form the master tapes.

If so, then I'll see if there's any copies floating around.

Sounds like the beginnings of a Magical Mystery Tour...roll up!!!!  $:)
