It’s January 1969 and The Beatles are commercially at their peak with a number one Album in the charts and the summers smash hit ‘Hey Jude.’ Professionally things couldn’t be worse, however. Paul has convinced them to rehearse for a live show before the cameras, but his band mates have misgivings which will only multiply as the days progress. This is ‘The Winter of Discontent’. And we’re going to listen in to what will transpire.
The finale of season two. It’s tea-time January 3rd 1969 and The Beatles set about learning one more new song before finishing for the day. Paul switches to piano, George picks up a bass and Michael tries to spell out his concerns.
Jan. 3rd 1969. Work continues on All Things Must Pass. It’s early evening so a glass or two is raised. And a conversation about jazz leads George to start talking about the great organist in Ray Charles’ Band who’ll soon become a major part of this project.
More work on All Things Must Pass, George settles on a guitar, John has a go at the drums, Paul finally gets involved and the Raelettes make an appearance.
