Definitely sounds like one for the tragics.I'm a little bit into the second episode and have found it fascinating but I'm a Beatles tragic, I sure other might find it a little long, a condensed two hour version might be more accessible to some. The interesting thing for me has been watching the creative process evolve for an album I know like the back of my hand. In the first episode you saw Paul and Ringo sitting round waiting for the others to arrive, Paul is just sitting there strumming on his bass and all of a sudden the opening riff to Get Back falls out, or Paul and John just throwing words at each other to try to make them fit into songs. I doubt too much history will be rewritten after watching this although so far Yoko doesn't seem to be the brooding figure loathed by the rest of the band that perhaps Beatles lore has that she is but as an insight into the evolution of the making of Let it Be it's amazing.
Watched the first part and Lennon is clearly under the influence, surprised of his lack of input and how he’s fairly quiet. Didn’t seem to malicious to Paul which always was led to believe during this time.
Paul may seem bossy but it just looked to me that he was just trying to solve issue and get the songs going. Surprised how much input he had in Lennon’s songs particularly Don’t Let Me Down. Seeing Get Back develop and turn into a song was one of the highlights. It’s long but if you’re a fan like me well worth the watch.
It has always amazed me also their youth and mastery. I am embarrassed to recall what I was capable of in my mid20s, pretty much nothing.Watched Rick Beato’s reaction video this morning
He pointed something out that is easily overlooked:
By the time the Beatles broke up, none of them had even turned 30. And George was just 26!!! ******* incredible that a band could produce that body of work by that age
Yeah it still remains an amazing coming together of 4 exceptional musicians, even some of Ringo's solo stuff is great which I still get a kick out of listening to.It has always amazed me also their youth and mastery.

Ringo was the ideal Beatles drummer. I love his drumming during the Rubber Soul - Revolver period. Rain is great.Yeah it still remains an amazing coming together of 4 exception musicians, even some of Ringo's solo stuff is great which I still get a kick out of listening to.
