I've Got a Feeling ( Version 2 ) THE STORY BEHIND THE ROOFTOP CONCERT The Beatles were in the process of making a documentary film of themselves producing a TV show, and writing new songs for their next album, which was to be a return to their roots of the rocking days. With a working title of "Get Back," rehearsals began at Twickenham studios on January 2, 1969. The project quickly ran into trouble. George Harrison walked out after eight days complaining of continual criticism from Paul McCartney. Although he returned a week later, the TV show idea eventually had to be dropped because they couldn't find a suitable location. McCartney suggested a series of exotic ideas, including a concert on an ocean liner, but John Lennon and Harrison quickly shot down that idea. There was even talk of an open-air concert in front of the pyramids of Egypt (another McCartney brainstorm), but that idea was also shelved. At the same time all of this was happening, plans were being made to turn the roof at No 3 Saville Row (the Apple Corps HQ) into a tranquil roof garden, and so Ringo Starr and film director Michael Lindsay-Hogg decided to take a look on January 26. It was Starr who then suggested the band should consider a concert on the roof. That concert, the last public performance by the band that changed music forever, took place four days later. It was mid-day on Thursday, January 30 when the group climbed the stairs to the roof for a concert that would last a full 42 minutes. It may well have gone on longer had it not been for the complaints of a neighbor, Stanley Davis. The wool merchant next door was not, so it seemed, a Beatles fan. He was quoted as saying, "I want this bloody noise stopped. It's an absolute disgrace." But a banker, Alan Pulverness, down at the end of the street, was kinder. He said,"Some people just can't appreciate good music."The positioning of the band was noticably different from their former concert appearances. George Harrison, who had always stood between John and Paul before, was positioned far to the left (from the band's point of view) with Lennon now in the middle. George would later he explain that by this time, he felt like a session man in the band anyway, so standing to the side seemed appropriate. The first song is a rehearsal of ”Get Back,” the end of which is greeted with fairly polite applause which clearly reminds Paul of a cricket match, so he steps back to the microphone and mutters something about Ted Dexter (Sussex and England player of the time). John says, "We've had a request from Martin Luther."That is followed by another version of ”Get Back.” (The Let It Be film has a well-matched edit of these first two ”Get Back” versions.) At the end of the song John says "Had a request for Daisy, Morris and Tommy." The band kicks straight into ”Don't Let Me Down,” then quickly plows straight into...I've Got A Feeling,” with John saying at the end, "Oh, my soul...... so hard.”(George Harrison sings background vocals on ”I've Got A Feeling,” but he is otherwise vocally silent during the rooftop performance.) Next up is ”The One After 909,” ending with John, who was obviously enjoying the experience, reciting a line of the 1913 standard ”Danny Boy.” This is followed by ”Dig A Pony,” with a false start, thanks to John ("one, two, three, hold it!” [John blows nose]” one, two, three"). The song ends with John saying"Thank you brothers... hands too cold to play the chords." The tape also has a brief rehearsal of the song before it began, and John asking for the words. In the film an assistant can be seen kneeling before him with the lyrics attached to a clipboard. Second engineer Alan Parsons has changed tapes, the first one being full. While waiting, the Beatles and Billy Preston have strummed through a quick version of the national anthem, ”God Save The Queen.” The new tape catches a few seconds of this, but it is neither released on record nor seen in the film.”Get Back,” the third rooftop version, is somewhat distracted owing to police presence, seeking to bring the show to a close. The song almost breaks down but lurches to a finish, with Paul ad-libbing "You've been playing on the roofs again, and you know your Momma doesn't like it, she's gonna have you arrested!" At the end Paul acknowledges the fervent applause and cheering from Ringo's wife Maureen with "Thanks, Mo" and then John, having stepped away from the microphone, returns to add the now famous ending: "I'd like to say 'thank you' on behalf of the group and ourselves and I hope we passed the audition!" The film won an Oscar for best musical score, but by the time it was premiered on May 13, 1970, the Beatles had split. The dream was over.--- Streaming Oldies Condition: Brand New, Non-Domestic Product: No, Artist: Beatles, Modified Item: No, Country/Region of Manufacture: United Kingdom, Custom Bundle: No, Style: British Invasion, Genre: Rock, Special Attributes: Limited Edition
