This amazingly detailed journey forensically explores the events of January 1969 as captured on tape while the Beatles were recording what would become the Let It Be album and film. Nick provides terrific context and busts myths along the way. This is not for the casual listener, but true,...Read full review »

Host reading reviews citing how not tedious the show is that that is tedious. Positives - intro music, Sets mood for show. enjoyable instrumental music. A rarity in most podcasts. Host has good voice. Much of the tape hiss and loud beeps on the original Nagra tapes have been muted for a...Read full review »

Perfect companion piece to the Get Back doc - provides all the missing context. Super detailed over 50 episodes and George still hasn’t quit 😂 Great for YouTube and podcasts recommendations as well. Excellent work, thanks 🙏

Hugely recommended. The detail and scholarship on display can only be applauded. Perfect.

After Peter Jackson's fantastic Get Back series, I didn't think I could get any closer to sitting in with the Beatles. But this podcast teleports us right there, so that we get to sit in with the group for two weeks in January 1969 as they create the Let It Be album. We hear every ...Read full review »

This is an incredible podcast - an in-depth examination of the Get Back sessions via the Nagra Tapes with insightful commentary. Highly recommended.

So pleased WODPOD is back. The attention to detail, the back stories, the sense of inclusion and community are just some reasons why I love this pod unconditionally. Thanks Nick!

A must for any Beatles fan, taking the pleasure of Get Back to a new level. Highly enjoyable and very well-informed commentary adds to the pleasure of hearing the full detail of the Let It Be sessions.

Boom you gotta love a new episode in the worlds most painful documentumentation of a document in the history of time

You might think you know everything about the Beatles and the Get Back project from Peter Jackson’s great documentary, but this podcast gives you the context that really brings everything from that series into sharper focus. I’ve learned a LOT and his deep commentary has helped me see certain...Read full review »
In 812 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/15/23
Fascinating, especially if you’re heavy duty into Beatles minutiae. However, lots of frustrating production choices. Whenever someone is quoted, the volume dips about 80% and some silly, scratchy sound affects are thrown on so these moments become completely inaudible. A shame because it’s an...Read full review »

A must listen for any Beatles fan.

This is more intimate and epic than even Peter Jackson's "Get Back" documentary! It's like a time machine, combined with the superpower of being able to step in and out of the minds and inspiration of these great artists. There's even a breakdown of the music performed by...Read full review »

Ever since the Get Back documentary, I’ve wanted to find out as much as possible about this Beatles era. I’ve listened to the Nagra tapes but it’s hard to make sense of everything. This podcast provides tons of helpful context about what was going on at the time (both in the Beatles’ lives and in...Read full review »

The Beatles Get Back sessions have been a source of fascination for decades, but attempting to wade through the hundred plus hours of Nagra recordings is daunting for even the most dedicated Beatles scholar. Fortunately, Nick Anthony has done it for us. He not only walks us through everything...Read full review »

Before there was Peter Jackson and his AI boost of the Nagra, Nick did the work for us. Thank you, my man.
Mike in Jeff Park via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/24/23
This is a great way of preparing for Peter Jackson’s Get Back show. Superb detail. Perhaps not for average fan but if you are reading this then you are probably a fellow Beatle nut.

i listen to it over and over. can’t wait for the next season!
komca z via Apple Podcasts · South Korea · 10/13/22
In an ocean of Beatles podcasts, Nick managed to find a way to talk about the Beatles in an original and entertaining way. Focusing on the last year of the band, he lets the actual recordings of the Beatles tell the story while illuminating the listeners with clarifications and details only when...Read full review »
Everything’s Jake via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/09/22
For me the best part of this podcast is the analysis/breakdown of the songs, demonstrating the chords, time, key, influences, and more that make up each song. I could listen to a podcast comprised of just that for the whole Beatles catalogue! However, there’s so much more fascinating information...Read full review »

While I enjoyed Peter Jackson’s documentary, Nick‘s deep dive research into the same. Is much more informative and much more enjoyable. At least it is for me because Nick has gone through the trouble of finding The most interesting and informative parts of that period in The Beatles history....Read full review »
Al O'Leary via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/28/22
I’ve always been intrigued and confused about this Beatle era and this podcast, along with the Get Back movie, shed a lot of light on the project and each band member. Very interesting and rewarding listen.

Check out any dictionary for the meaning of the phrase ‘deep dive’ and it’ll link you to this podcast. It’s superb and a godsend to any and all Beatles fans. Highly recommended.

Been a subscriber almost since Day 1. Listened to everything. After ODing on this topic with 8 hours of Get Back I assumed I would be done. But I came back to it after the new year and am absolutely enthralled. It’s one thing to document the minute-by-minute interactions, but Nick brings these...Read full review »

I’ve watched Get Back at least 10x now and spent last month deep diving into all things Beatles. This is a must listen for anyone who didn’t think Get Back was long enough. Has lots of great context added to get the full understanding of this month in the Beatles life.
Kacki via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/03/22
I indeed have watched Get Back three times and eagerly await an expanded BluRay release. But that wait has been made easier after delving into this series. The “real time” narration is great and often dryly hilarious (..”there’s that smokers cough again..”) and as a musician I also appreciate the...Read full review »

I love this podcast. I’ve listened to bootleg audio and often left confused. This explains everything in great detail. As a Beatles fanatic I really appreciate all the research and detail. Thank you for creating another trip to 1969 for me !

Pete NotPedro via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 12/11/21
I was prompted to have a listen to "Winter of Discontent" by the guys of the "Nothing Is Real" Beatles podcast. I'm about six episodes in to WoD, and I'm wholly bowled over by the quality of this program. Nick provides very informative and engaging, extremely well-produced...Read full review »

Wow
I loved the Get Back docu-series and was experiencing withdrawal afterwards. I did a podcast search for reviews of it and came upon this. Wow! What a treasure trove of details! I’m on episode 4 and I can’t wait to move through all of these during my Uber Eats delivery shifts! Haha. ...Read full review »

A necessary accompaniment to Peter Jackson’s “Get Back!” on Disney+. I was 9 when this footage occurred & the album, Get Back was an important piece of my life’s soundtrack. I’ve seen Macca live in his 70’s. This podcast, I suggest, should actually replace the tv series for your first...Read full review »

So glad this podcast exists. With the long awaited release of Get Back coming tomorrow I was excited to find this podcast, recommended by podbible to fill in all the gaps.

An incredible in-depth examination of The Beatles’ “Get Back” project. These sessions ended up being the most documented of any by The Beatles. The ‘Nagra Tapes’ are of great historical and musical value.

This podcast is for Beatles obsessives (like me). Nick provides more detail than many will need about the chat (The Twickenham studios were needed for a new movie starring Ringo

This is amazing more podcasts like this need to me made, Thankyou nick
Lloyd Eleven via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/24/21
If you can’t get enough Beatles this is for you. If you are interested in song writing , this is also for you. Nick does a wonderful job explaining the steps and discussions during the sessions. I am really enjoying this.
Amazon Baby Boomer via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/23/21
A stunning level of attention to detail. I feel this podcast will readdress the balance between the gloomy Let it Be cinematic edit and Doug Sulphy’s essential but downbeat book with ( what I fear will be) a sugar coated Disney version of events …Nick tells it like it is (or was) . Love his...Read full review »

A truly deep dive in the the nagra tapes giving a minute by minute, note by note, breakdown of the Jan ‘69 sessions.

The Nagra reels are the best view of the Beatles at work we will ever get. I don’t think anyone has ever extracted the narrative properly until now. This podcast is fantastic. I hope you keep going until you squeeze every last drop out of every minute of tape.
PabloIOS via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/15/21
Absolutely love this pod. It’s a deep and detailed insight into the Twickenham sessions and the context of the sessions. As a Beatles obsessive I learned so much more and it challenged my received wisdom. Absolute quality ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
Giggly bunt via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/31/21
This is a strangely compelling journey through The Beatles ‘Let It Be’ sessions of January 1969. We move through the story with unimaginable detail, in an atmosphere that is not dissimilar to visiting the ghosts of the The Beatles at work in the studio more than half a century ago. The minute a...Read full review »
