"Let It Be" WHEN?
« on: June 30, 2005, 03:27:06 PM »

from "Breakfast with the Beatles":

June 29, 2005

The restored version of the Beatles' "Let It Be" film will be released on DVD in September 2005.

Director Bob Smeaton told Archer of 99.5 The Mountain's "Breakfast With The Beatles" that the delay in restoring the movie was related to the sheer volume of film that had been shot.

Before he could tackle the project, which began last year, Smeaton was involved with painstakingly restoring footage of the film documenting the famous "Festival Express," which featured Janis Joplin, the Band and the Grateful Dead on a bus tour of Canada.

The DVD version of "Let It Be" has required an immense amount of film cleaning and color restoration, and Smeaton says viewers will be amazed with the results.

"It will also feature some remarkable bonus material," Smeaton added.

True. I  read EMI said they haven't set a date for the release yet, as the project is not finished yet...

It's about f*cking time!!!

I would guess that since it's universally everyone's favorite part of the movie, the bonus material will HAVE to include the complete rooftop performance. Apple would surely take a critical bashing if that didn't happen. I'm sure it will. It would be huge, too, if they have film of the moment George walked out on the band. The nagras were running at the time, there are bits and pieces, brief snatches of audio, but precious little of that drama has leaked out.

It would be nice, but I have a suspicion they will do what they did with anthology and show themselves in the best possible light. I don't know if Paul would be too keen to show that little bit of history to the world

I can do without the bickering scenes. Just leave them as outakes in the special features.

I'm with you JR! Seems these rumors pop up every so often to get all Beatle fans stirred up and then it never comes about.

That's the thing. Almost every year at the Beatlefest I will overhear some vendors saying that Apple will be releasing 'Let It Be' on such and such a date, and it never materializes, so I will remain hopeful but skeptical until its official.

The bickering and all that was part of the movie, if you take out parts that aren't so pleasant or whatever, you've tampered with the original, and its no longer the same thing.

Let's just hope this isn't another false alarm. I don't want to rain on anyone's parade, but again, this promise of a release has happened so many times, I'll believe it when I see it.

On a dutch site i read that the dvd will be in 5.1 surround sound en will contain the complete rooftop concert. The original film will also contain parts of the Nagra tapes that the police found in january 2003 at bootlegmakers in Holland. These tapes make it possible to use scenes that had no original sound, with a lot of recordings from jamsessions.
