And I finally name check Doug Sulpy.
Due to the schedule of the film crew, no recordings were made on January 11 or 12. I’ll be back in three days with what happened on January 13, 1969.

What were the Beatles up to 40 years ago today? They were still trying to make some decisions about their upcoming TV special. They also rehearsed songs for that TV special. Paul and George have a heart-to-heart talk.
The slightly effeminate male voice you hear twice in the podcast belongs to director Michael Lindsay-Hogg. He directed the promotional films for “Hey Jude” and “Revolution” in 1968. He tends to talk more than John and Ringo.
Many Beatles scholars refer to this aborted TV special that became the Let It Be album and film as the Get Back project. Get Back was the working title of the album. I’m going to refer to it as Let It Be because that is the name more people will recognize. I don’t want casual fans to think I’m talking about the 1989 Paul McCartney concert film Get Back.
Come back tomorrow to find out what happend on January 7, 1969. I’ll give you a hint: a new song will develop before our eyes ears.
