Like Rita and Thomas Williams.

Rita is wearing a dark sombrero
and a beard.

The chord there.
I mean

Her husband is wearing
a crinoline skirt which he made himself.

Still no idea where I come in.

When it's mixed, as it is, I'm sure
with a mix on it, it'll be all right.

I know what

Paul, are you gonna have strings?
- Yeah.

- Well, it's like

Ooh!
Yeah, there's parts

There's only parts where
you can hear the electric piano properly,
- or the piano properly.

- Yes.

Most of the time, you know,
like, they mix together.

Yeah.
I think it needs,
like, a lot of, uh

- Cleaning.

- Cleaning, yeah.

Actually,
the thing is, it's a nice feel to it,
but it's rather like
everything else we've done.

And this particular song
doesn't need that.

See, the only way I've ever heard it is,
like, in my head,
- is, like, Ray Charles's band.

- I'm supposed to marry you.

And I don't

I haven't really even listened to them.

It would be nice with some brass
just doing the sustaining chord thing.

Yeah.

- Yeah.

- Moving and just holding notes.

- Yeah.
We probably, yeah

- If I pull yours up

We were planning to do it anyway
for a couple of numbers,
just to have
a bit of brass and bit of strings.

That's what George was saying before.

That's the bit
where The Raelettes'd sing it.

The long and winding road ♪
That leads me to your door ♪
Great.
Sorry, man.
Oh, that's nice.

She's so worried now.

"I gotta eat for three hours,
then maybe go to bed around 1:00.

You're just going back in your box.

That's where you're going.

Don't tell.
Don't tell.

Aren't I gonna have anything to eat?

- Yeah.
F sharp.
Diminished.

And then F with that, like the 7th.

It's great on piano
'cause I don't know anything about it.

Yeah.

been able to do that on the guitar.

Let's take one now.

Yeah, right.

Can we have our microphones?
Oh, mister, can we please? ♪
Ask 'em to put the mics on, will you?
Hello.

And get one for Billy too.

- It's a bit ploddy.

- What?
You know, just

It sort of plods along a bit.
A bit much.

- It's just mourning and slow, slow.

- Mourning and

Give up.

It's nice though.

- Have you turned me down?
- No.

It's funny though.

You can't hear the piano either.

We only asked for the piano.

No.
I said, "Oh, Ringo is on PA.

A great sound in here
will improve what we do.

No, but I mean, it's like
when we played in clubs in Hamburg.

We sounded great.

So you get

Let's do that.

It'll help you anyway to begin with.

- Thank you, George.

- You're welcome.

See, 'cause that'd be good
if we could get all that,
get the sound in this room.

It's, like, remember that night
we tried tape echo with George?
On a bit of vocal.

They have bloody big speakers
or something,
to shout through.

They should be
at least as big as a bass amp.

- Yeah.

- Paul.

Yeah.

Thing is, they're both facing
each other for a kickoff.

They're all facing

They're all right next to the amps.

I mean, get them up there,
they come down to us.

Nail 'em on them sticks up there
and shoot 'em down to us,
and we'll all face that way if you like.

We'll face any way.

Well, then, let's

I don't know who to tell to do that.

George,
of the ones they've done so far,
which do you think we can do on the roof?
- Anything without the grand piano.

- Oh!
- Morning.

- You're embarrassing me.

Should we write down
what we could do on the roof?
You haven't got
a concise list of titles, have we, Alan?
- No.
I can make one.

- Well, I

One is "I Dig a Pony.

We can do that on the roof.

"Let It Be.

Which is "Let It Be"? Oh, no.

I think "Let It Be" should be down here.

- Oh, you went last night?
I went there thinking, "Well, I've got
to see him.
I put it off last time.
"
You know?
I keep hearing about him all these years.

Things that you just

you can't believe, you know.

Right down to where
where it's gone,
and how to get it.

So, I, you know
Well, I didn't
really wanna say it to sort of half o'ya.

I thought,
"He's gonna look after me, whatever.

That's
it's just like that.

And he knows

He even knows what we're like, you know?
The way he described each one of us,
you know,
and what we've done
and what we're gonna do and that.

But just, like,
he knows me as much as you do.

Incredible guy.

He's got a great idea for Biafra.

He's like

He says, "I'm a practical man.

And his thing

You know The Stones' Circus we did?
- So he arranges those things for them.

However many we sell, they cop.

You know, so, The Stones show,
he's gonna make an LP out of it.

They're making a book of it
and everything, of course, you know?
Like, everybody is into that.

And he's gonna, uh, make an LP of it,
of everybody that was on

to buy food for Biafra.

Yeah, I was telling him
about your idea for that film.

- Oh, yeah.

- The thing is,
I mean, if we took the food to that place,
with the money we've all earned

He'd do it completely himself,
arrange it all.

I didn't mean to get into all this,
but he's so fascinating.

Do you want to do this one more time?
- Yeah.

- Eh?

S.

How many numbers do you think
you'll have by tomorrow at 1:00
- before you go up on the roof?
- About six.

Yes, it's gonna be great.

Yeah.

But strange, man.

Yes.

Mmm.

Tomorrow, with the nine cameras,
if we do tomorrow,
there is a kind of,
"Something will happen.
"
No, it's the best bit of us,
always has been and always will be,
is when we've got

when we're backs against the wall
and we've been rehearsing,
rehearsing, rehearsing.

And he knows it's a take on the dub.

And he does it great.

No, the organization
has gotta come from either you
or from you doing an audience.

But that's not true, you see?
There is a difference.

- Like when we came here from Twickenham.

- Mmm.

It's a whole other thing, you know?
If we went into a TV studio now,
in one of those big, bare TV studios
and you sat us down,
just with our songs and amps,
we'd do 'em and we'd do 'em great.

I think what we need is
an audience of some sort.

Either a surprise audience

Tomorrow, or, uh
I'll light my cigar.

If we've got like everything set for
tomorrow, we just go ahead and do it and

The roof is like too far out.

If we do an open air thing

That's
that's really all
I can say about this whole scene.

We should learn all the numbers.

All of them.

All the ones that are gonna be
on the album.

I know it literally takes a bit more time.

That's why I wanna
go through with you today, the ones

But we haven't got the end thing.

I've got a feeling that
we're gonna just, sort of, go off

Got a feeling ♪
We're just gonna go off like we did
after the end of the last album.

And just sort of think,
"Oh, not another fucking album.
"
You know? Because this is

this is what this is, you know.

- I can't wait to work it, you know?
- Yeah.

But it's like we got much better takes
after we moved from Twickenham to here.

Oh, yeah,
but I mean here I like.
It's like home.

But, like, we still haven't got
any aim for it, except an album again.

- Yeah.

- Our only aim ever is an album, you know?
Which is like a very nonvisual thing.

But albums is
what we're doing at the moment.

I mean,
you gotta be sneaky with The Beatles,
or else we'll just go on forever
in a circle, you know?
Whenever we talk about it,
we have certain rules.

Like George saying, "What do you
wanna do?" And he says, "No films.
"
You know, but it's wrong, that.

It's very wrong, that.

Because you don't know.

He says
What he means is,
no Help, Hard Day's Night.

'Cause this is a film.

And he now he doesn't mind this.

It's us going silly again.

See, it's like when we came
back from Hamburg,
and did Leicester, De Montfort Hall
and we had the worst first night thing,
and we're all nervous,
and it was terrible.

Then we played another the next night.

We just went right into it.

We're good at that
once we get over the nervousness.

But it's like there's the hurdle
of that nervousness is there now.

Yes, but for who is
tomorrow the day? Not for me.

You know, it's like there's this thing
where there is a show to be had
out of what we've got here,
which is just so incredible.

That's unbelievable.

And you don't have to go on the roof.

You don't have to go anywhere.

- You really only have to sing 'em.

- Well, even if we stay here

This business of
a deadline though is up to you really,
because we've given you deadlines already.

Yeah, well, that's why
I'm talking to John, not you.

The easiest way to finish the show,
is just to sit here for another few days
and start rehearsing them one after
the other and do three numbers at a time.

And like George said, get a program
of where we're gonna do 'em,
what's gonna follow what.

And just start playing them right through.

And then just knock it off.

Like you used to, and have
all your titles on your guitar, you know.

Yes, yes.
I mean,
I thought that's what we're doing.

It's just that
you say you're not ready.

We're not ready, yeah, sure.

We're not ready to do 14.

See, the only trouble is, we really have
to want to do a show at the end of it.

That's the thing.
That's the trouble.

None of us have an aim.

We don't have a thing
at the end of it that we wanna do.

We could have had a De Montfort Hall show

This would have been De Montfort Hall
if we'd have done
the dress rehearsal here.

And get over the nervousness
of an audience,
and stop, sort of, playing to show off
to them and

Just play it.

Yeah.
Yeah.

The voices are going in my head,
which way we're gonna
which way we are

What's your, sort of, practical answer
to the problem now, regarding tomorrow?
I think we'd be daft just not to do it

- Well, try and do something tomorrow

- Sorry I'm late.

even if it's a grand dress rehearsal,
and see how it went.

- Morning, George.

- And then, you know

I mean, if we had another six weeks

Six weeks.

I mean, you know,
if we had another month to play with
to really, I think,
get 14 straight off, it'd be nice,
you know, to still do the seven we've got.

- Do you plan on playing the

- What, what?
I just don't
You know, I think
it's gonna take months doing it like that.

So how do you think we should do it then?
You can film some
while we're recording them
at the same time, okay, but

Yeah, see,
that's what I wanna get in me head.

Is it a documentary of us
doing another album? Which it is.

Except,
we're doing them one after the other.

No, but, I mean, we're not doing a payoff.

We're not doing the 11 numbers
straight off for an album.

We're gonna have to, sort off, join 'em.

I agree with that.

I think it's disappointing but, all right,
we've only got to seven.
Let's do seven.

Yeah.

'Cause otherwise

We haven't enough time to do 14,
'cause Ringo's gotta go, you know?
But we might be able to get another seven
off by the end of two weeks.

I mean, we will, but

The only trouble is that the only people,
like, who need to agree on what it is
we're doing is the four of us,
and we're the only ones
who haven't even talked about it.

Because we had the meeting
before all this and said, "TV show.
"
That's what I've gotta get in my head.

It's an album.

All that footage of film
which could make about half a dozen films.

Yeah.
It's a film of us making an album.

Yeah, but that's visual.

Yes.
Yeah.

Yeah.
I've got no complaints about it.

But I just gotta get that in my head.

This TV show was supposed
to be a TV show of the last album.

- The last album?
- Yes.

But when we came to do it we said,
"We'll write new songs.
"
'Cause that's it, you see.

We always

We never

We always get ahead of ourselves.

The thing is that, like, yesterday,
which wasn't a particularly good day,
and the day before, which wasn't
a particularly good day either.

Mmm.

The reason is obviously
the fact that you're playing
the same three or four songs
for a week or whatever,
you know,
and you're flogging them to death.

Obviously you're getting bored
with them, you know, like,
- it can't be any other way.

- Yeah.

That was why George and I were trying
to get you yesterday
to do three in one go,
straight through, so you had to think,
"Oh, yeah, what's the key?
Why isn't it right?"
How many have we
already recorded good enough?
None.

None? Well, what about all those
times we've done "Get Back"?
Oh, well, I mean,
one of them's all right, isn't it?
There's that one of yours we did.

And "Get Back.
"
But they're at a stage
where it's dress rehearsal stage,
- Yes.

- Where if you did a performance,
it probably would be it.

- Yes.

- Yesterday you got terribly close to it
on a couple of the numbers
you were trying to do.

- One more take and you've had it.

- It's just physical tiredness on my part.

You know, it took great strain
to get through "Don't Let Me Down"
and the other one.

Just physically singing at that pace,
I'm being so tired.

Well, that's the thing,
if you're planning on working up
till Ringo does the film,
doing it like this,
you know, we're just gonna drop.

I think
I think yesterday

- At least we could've recorded all those.

- Was the result of not having the weekend.

If we hadn't had the weekend, we wouldn't
have been able to even attempt yesterday.

That's the paradox.

But if we had just
been recording them, you know

And at the moment
the documentary is really like No Exit.

It's just going around and around
and around with no payoff.

There's no story.

There's a lot of good stuff
that we shot in the documentary,
but there's no story yet.

Now I know how to get
this TV show together in about a week.

But I can't do it with you.

I can't produce you.

- Neither can anybody else.

- No, right.

'Cause we don't allow it, you know.

We don't allow people
to come and say, "You do that.
"
That's why I'm creating
artificial frameworks for us to do it

We've got a lot of good stuff,
like with some of the days at Twickenham.

We've got great stuff, counterpoint thing.

But at the moment haven't got an ending.

See, 'cause they've got the film,
you know.

- I just wanna get out now.

- Yes.

We've done the film.

We've done the numbers enough, you know?
And we begin together

But, I mean, if George wants to think
while we're doing it
that he's making a record.

- Yes.

- And you wanna think we're rehearsing.

It makes no odds, you know.

So we've gotta decide
that we mustn't then go on "Get Back"
for three hours.

Or else I really feel like
I'm trying to produce The Beatles,
and I know it's hopeless.

I just can't do it, you know.

And no one can do it
'cause the four individuals
are too strong individually.

- Yes, we know.

- So you want us to record these songs?
Yeah.
Get it together now
instead of talking about the show.

Get it, so that we've got 14 songs.

We're talking about
this abstract thing we hope to get,
and by talking about,
we're not getting it.

Okay, let's do it.

But, man, physically, yesterday
we tried to learn the next half.

But physically we were too tired.

- That's all it was.

- Yeah, that's right.

And we're trying to do what you're saying,
and we might have done
what he was saying at the same time,
but we couldn't do it 'cause we're tired.

- That's all.

- Yeah.

So we had

We might have had a bit more sleep

You mean you're still expecting us to be
on the chimney with a lot of people,
or something like that?
Well, anyway, we won't worry
about that.
Don't give us that one.

"Expecting" is not a word we use anymore.

Uh, "thinking about.
"
- "Praying"?
- "Praying.
Hoping.
"
Uh
well, now,
what about the roof tomorrow?
- Do you wanna collectively do it or not?
- No, let's

Let's
Let's decide on that,
sort of, a bit later.

Let's us keep off that.

We'll do the numbers, you know?
We're the band.

"You're fucking right.
"
No, you know, I
You know, whatever.

I'll do it if we've got to go on the roof.

- You're the band now

- You know, I mean

You would like to?
Very diverse people.

- One second.

- But, I mean if
See, I don't mind

- That's all right.
We won't discuss it.

-
if anybody doesn't wanna go on it.

- It wasn't that I

- So what songs have we got?
Have we got a sort of list
of what we've got, 'cause

A lot of them are

I mean, there's too much of a list there.

- But there's certainly everything here.

- Okay.

"I've Got a Feeling,"
"Don't Let Me Down," "Get Back.
"
- Don't know what that is.

- "I'd Like a Love That's Right.
"
I'd like a love that

"Long and Winding Road,"
"Let it Be," "For You Blue.
"
- I love "Yer Blue.
"
- "Two of Us," "All I Want is You,"
"Across The Universe,"
"Maxwell's Silver Hammer.
"
- "Route 999.
"
- "One After 909.
"
"One After 909.
"
Listen, there's no surprise numbers
even in this.

Surprises?
I mean, there's nothing that'd throw us
to do it straight.

"Bathroom Window," "Teddy Boy.
"
We haven't gone through
"Maxwell's" since Twickenham.

No.
"All Things Must Pass.
"
That's lucky 13.

There's "Dig It", as well,
which is very long.

It's like all these new ones
we've gotta do
to make up the number don't exist.

- Right.

- Great.

We've got 'em all.

And you've got the live album.

- Yeah.

- If you wanna do it, if we just find out

We should just collect
all the thoughts on these
and just check through every song,
like to know, say, make sure you know
all the chords, I know all the bass notes.

Are we having lunch soon?
- See you later.

- Ta-ra, girls.

See ya.

John, I'll tell you
what I'd like to do.

Um

You know, I've got so many songs
that I've got me, like,
my quota of tunes
for the next ten years or albums.

I'd just like to maybe do
an album of songs.

- Yeah.

- Yeah.

But, I mean,
I'd like it so that if, uh

'Cause it would be nice.
It would be nice
to mainly get them all out the way.

Yes.

And secondly, just to hear
what all mine are like all together.

Yeah, but it'd be nice if
any of us can do separate things as well.

That way it also preserves this,
the Beatle bit of it, more.

Because then

Have an outlet
for every little note you want.

You know,
'cause all these songs of mine,
I could give to people
who could do 'em good.

But I suddenly realized,
"You know, fuck all that.

I'm just gonna do me for a bit.
You know?"
- That's the real thing.

- It's great.
That's a good idea.

Sir, we must have
your comment.
What do you think of it?
What's going on?
- It's The Beatles.

- What gives? What's happening?
They decided to play
for the public for nothing.

Well, that's great.

It's a bloody stupid place
to have a concert.

Nice to have something for free
in this country at the moment, isn't it?
- Don't you like The Beatles?
- No.

- No?
- No.

Not at all?
Not now.
They've changed completely.

The Beatles are doing
a free concert on the roof.

- Now?
- Yeah.
What do you think of it?
I think it's very good.

Why aren't they doing it in the street?
They just thought you'd wanna hear it.

Yeah, well, we'd also like to see them.

I just can't see that it makes sense.

Well, I think it's a very good thing.
