In January 1969, The Beatles tried to go back to their rock ‘n’ roll roots by writing and rehearsing new songs for a televised concert, but after ten days, the project fell apart. Most of the songs were never finished and, instead, were masked with choirs and orchestras and released on Let It Be.
Then, in April 1969, The Beatles started work on their final record. After the breakdown of the Get Back sessions in January, they were determined to make one more great Beatles record before they called it quits. Working again with producer George Martin, they succeeded in finishing their career in style with Abbey Road.
Join Wil Gregersen for a two-part celebration of 50 years of the Get Back sessions and Abbey Road.
On September 5, take a look at the Get Back recording sessions. Hear how the project started and broke down, and listen to cuts from the sessions.
On September 12, hear about the making of Abbey Road, listen to the entire recording, and talk about what the music says to you.
This event is free and open to all. Drop in for a fun time.
