THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “On Jan. 30, 1969, The Beatles famously staged their final live performance on the rooftop of their Apple Corp. headquarters in London’s Savile Row. For the 53rd anniversary of the hisoric event, the complete audio of the band’s legendary set has been mixed in stereo and Dolby Atmos by Giles Martin and Sam Okell.
Fans around the world have been exploring The Beatles’ January 1969 sessions and rooftop performance with last fall’s celebrated release of the band’s remixed, expanded Let It Be Special Edition, Peter Jackson’s The Beatles: Get Back docuseries, and the collectible hardcover book ofthe same title. The raw sources explored for the new projects have revealed that a more joyous, benevolent spirit imbued the sessions than was conveyed in the 1970 Let It Be film’s 80 minutes, while also shining a new, warmer light on the LP.
It’s a wonderful time to be a Beatles fan, as the world shares in the celebration of the band’s innovative and inspiring creativity captured so vividly in January 1969.
