The first commercial output from the Get Back sessions: Get Back itself and Don't Let Me Down , both recorded at Savile Row on 28 January and remixed on 7 April. Owing to the late remixing, copies of the single did not reach the stores until several days after this rather optimistic release date. But it nonetheless sailed straight to the top of the charts all over the world.
Neither the A- nor B-side carried a producer's credit, hardly surprising considering the confused roles of George Martin and Glyn Johns. But the record label for both sides did bear one new name, the two songs being officially accredited to "The Beatles with Billy Preston". "A great honour," said Preston.
