I have mixed feelings about this documentary.. I'm quite a Beatles fan and I think they are just changing history a bit imo.
I've kept myself busy with reading a couple of books about the Let it be period and one of them was a word for word transcription of all the conversations during Let it be, every song which was played (even it was only three seconds..) etc..Written down with the date, the hour and even the minute when it was spoken or played.
It was hard stuff to read but to me the horror was obvious (I remember that they only had fun when singing old classic rock n roll songs)...The countless times Harrison started "All things must pass" to be bluntly stopped by Paul who wants to sing "The Long and winding road" . The fact that Lennon during a certain periode refused to speak to anyone and Yoko had to do the talking "since he and Yoko think the same things" so Lennon didn't want to speak...Hearing her suggesting to play the concert for thousands of empty seats as a protest during what was going on in the world, even mentioning tigers on stage...Ringo who hardly says a word and is a quiet shadow most of the time. Harrison who even left.. It's a tough legacy and it has always been clear that Paul and Ringo would like to see another take on that part of their history so Jackson has to go through 56 hours of footage and surely he'll find enough to paint a different picture than the dreary Let it be movie.. I can understand that someone says "you weren't there" but I can't image that the thirty books I've read about the Beatles were all made up or a trick of the imagination...(sorry for my English, I'm Flemish). It was such a terrible episode that they had to record "Abbey Road" to have a decent ending...
I am exited too but it still feels a bit like manipulating history. When you think what kind of relief it apparantly was when Preston entered and everyone showed themselves to be the friendly guy "because no one wanted to show that he was the pain in the *ss" according to one of The Beatles..
