THE ROOFTOP SESSIONS

The Beatles were going to make a documentary film of themselves producing a TV show and writing a bunch of new songs for their next album, which was to be a return to their roots of the rocking days. This was probably inspired by the emergence of The Band, straightforward, downhome and everyone's favourite name to drop at the time.
With a working title of "Get Back" rehearsals began at Twickenham studios on January the 2nd, 1969. The project quickly ran into trouble, George Harrison walked out after eight days complaining of continual criticism from Paul McCartney. However, he returned a week later. The TV show idea had to be dumped because they couldn't find a suitable location. They thought about hiring an ocean liner, but somewhere along the line that idea was also shelved, along with a number of other exotic suggestions. But it was John Lennon's suggestion to record a selection of songs in the controlled atmosphere of a studio.
At this time, plans were made to turn the roof at No 3 Saville Row, the Apple Corps HQ, into a tranquil roof garden, and so Ringo Starr and Michael Lindsay-Hogg decided to take a look. It seemed ideal for what they had in mind.
The Beatles last ever public concert took place around mid day on Thursday January the 30th and lasted a full 42 minutes, and may well have gone on longer had it not been for the complaints of the neighbour, Stanley Davis. The wood merchant next door was not a Beatles fan so it seemed. He was quoted as saying "I want this bloody noise stoped. It's absolute disgrace". But the banker, Alan Puverness, at the end of the street was kinder, he said "Some people just can't appreciate good music".
The film won an Oscar for best musical score and it was presented to Paul McCartney by non other than John Wayne, Big Leggy. But by the time it was premiered on May the 13th, 1970, The Beatles had split. The dream was over... "I'd like to say 'Thank you' on behalf of the group and ourselves and I hope we passed the audition".

Review by: TheRutlesOn 3 Jul 1999
This CD is a straighforward "clone" of the Yellow Dog disc YD015 The "Let It Be" Rehearsals, Vol. 1 The Complete Rooftop Concert, which sadly has been out of print for a while. So now you can get this one instead. The comment regarding tracks 20-22 is probably untrue - track 20 has been on YD015 as well, and 21+22 are probably taken from another disc to fill the remaining space of the CD (YD015 was only 68 mins in length
Review by: Leandro Rigobello, leanro@libero.itOn 08 Feb 2001
It's very important for rarities.
Review by: Mat Nicholls, matnicholls@btinternet.comOn 11 Aug 2001
This is a pretty good way to obtain the rooftop concert material - a clone of the original Yellow Dog "Complete Rooftop Concert" single CD issue, plus two bonus tracks. The non-rooftop stuff in itself doesn't justify the purchase price, but if you come across this disc and don't yet own the rooftop concert on CD, this is a pretty good bet.

There are better versions available - Yellow Dogs 2CD Rooftop Concert is comprehensive, whilst the Masterdisc CD of this material has the best sound quality. Both include "God Save The Queen" - insubstantial and inessential and not included on this CD.
