Enjoy your visit, we look forward to seeing you again soon
Future news of Beatles and related releases is slowly being unveiled by Apple/UMC and the Beatles themselves Here's a run down of what we know at this present time.
GET BACK - THE BEATLES
he The new Get Back film directed by Peter Jackson will premier in cinemas on the 4th September 2020. It's being distributed by Disney Studios, expect a short run in cinemas to enable the film to be stream on Disney+, their newly named streaming service.
An eagle eyed Beatles fan, no not me, discovered that a new Hardcover book 'Get Back: The Beatles was listed on Amazon as being published on the 15th October 2020. It would make sense that the same date would also feature the release of the new Get Back film and Get Back box set.
Peter Jackson has worked on the new film with the team that he put together the stunning They Shall Not Grow Old documentary using the same techniques to clean up the Beatles Get Back footage and the results are supposedly stunning!
The music is being remixed by Giles Martin & Sam Okell at Abbey Road studios, the same team have remixed all the Beatles 50th anniversary releases.
One final piece of information on Get Back is that the original Let It Be film will be released at a later date. One hopes this isn't swept under the carpet by Apple as the Beatles are still unhappy with the content of the film.
FLAMING PIE ARCHIVE COLLECTION - PAUL McCartney
Although no official announcement has been made of the next release in Paul McCartney's Archive Collection Series of box sets, Flaming Pie has appeared as the front runner after the intended Back to the Egg & London Town releases were delayed.
It would make sense as 8 songs from Flaming Pie appeared on the 2016 release 'Pure McCartney' indicating that the remastered album has been 'in the can' for sometime.
The 5CD/2DVD Flaming Pie is touted as being released on the 24th July 2020 and a recent 'TBC' appearance on Amazon of a 5CD/2DVD box set with the same release date by an un-named artist retailing at £154.40 could very well be what we've been waiting for the last few months.
50TH ANNIVERSARY RELEASES OF ALL THINGS MUST PASS / THE CONCERT FOR BANGLA DESH / LIVING IN THE MATERIAL WORLD - GEORGE HARRISON
A few days ago, Rolling Stones published an interview with Olivia & Dhani Harrison, George Harrison’s Dark Horse Label Rides Again - Olivia and Dhani Harrison delve into the imprint’s complex history, and what they have planned for its latest phase. The extensive article on Dark Horse Records also revealed accorded 50th anniversary editions of All Things Must Pass, Concert for Bangladesh and Living in the Material World. I've always thought ATMP has never received the mega release it deserves but apparently there's a treasure trove of mountains of tapes been recovered for the 50th anniversary album. A documentary of George's 1974 US tour could also be in the works as well as releases from the Dark Horse Records catalogue, a busy year ahead then....
