Product description

Review

"The book has Russell and McCartney photos, text from Peter Jackson and Hanif Kureishi, but best of all, verbatim transcripts from the sessions, which read on the page almost like Samuel Beckett dialogue." --Rob Sheffield, Rolling Stone

"It's remarkable how much of Get Back reads like it could be adaptable into an off-Broadway play, full of dark comedy and rich insight about what can and can't emerge out of ego and compromise among longtime partners approaching a crossroads." --Chris Wilman, Variety

The Get Back book is curiously fascinating, even (especially?) at its most mundane, like a full page of the band debating their lunch orders." --Alan Light, Vanity Fair

"Get Back will prove to be thoroughly absorbing for most Beatles followers, since it does loosely tell a story -- not to mention the fact that John Lennon and Paul McCartney are just damned funny fellows, left to their own jocular devices as unwitting dialogue writers." --Chris Wilman, Variety

"Most of all, they found joy in the music again, something they'd been missing for a while. Despite how the story is often told, the songs of Let It Be weren't about a band falling apart, but a group of old friends discovering that they still liked making music together." --Eric Spitznagel, New York Post

"Lavishly illustrated with photos and film stills, this ultra-specialized volume from editor Harris transcribes the studio banter among the Beatles in January 1969 as they created the Let It Be album and the Get Back documentary." --David P. Szatmary, Library Journal

"So there is tension and conflict in these transcripts, but there is also a lot of love. That balance is what might make the book The Beatles: Get Back the ultimate document of the Get Back sessions" --Mike Segretto, Psychobabble

"The book, beautifully produced by Callaway, is nothing like the rushed job that accompanied Let It Be." --Michael Lindsay-Hogg, Air Mail

"It would be fair to say that today Let it Be symbolizes the breaking-up of The Beatles. That's the mythology, the truth is somewhat different. The real story of Let It Be has been locked in the vaults of Apple Corps for the last 50 years." --Peter Jackson


Book Description

The most anticipated book in more than a decade by the legendary band, The Beatles: Get Back is the official account of the creation of their final album, Let It Be, told in The Beatles' own words, illustrated with hundreds of previously unpublished images, including photos by Ethan A. Russell and Linda McCartney. Half a century after the 1970 Let It Be album and film, this milestone book coincides with the global release of Peter Jackson's documentary feature film, The Beatles: Get Back.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Stunning
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 12 October 2021
This is an absolutely stunning & beautiful coffee table style book! I’ve got many Beatle books & this is ‘up there’ with the best.
Many of the pictures I’ve not seen before & the accompanying text is very informative.
This is a wonderful accompaniment to the up and coming reissue of Let it Be. Honestly; if you’re a music / Beatles fan then you WILL enjoy this glorious book. The quality & content are excellent.
I’m over the moon with this.
Buy ‘n’ Enjoy
