On January 8, 1969, the Beatles finally worked on two of George’s songs, although John and Paul don’t take them as seriously as they might have. They work on another new George number tomorrow. One of the reasons George is getting so much time is John’s inability to write songs. This is the fifth day of rehearsals and John has only contributed one song. I’ll get into a bit more detail about this on the podcast. Paul attempts to discuss this problem with John and you will hear his reply.
Get back here tomorrow to check out the progress on Get Back. I’ll tell you all about the song’s supposedly “racist” roots.
