The people at the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in Cleveland always put on amazing exhibits of artifacts and memories from the careers of our favorite classic rockers. Now, they have announced a new exhibit that will definitely excite Beatles fans. They’ll be taking a look at The Beatles’ Get Back sessions, with visual items helping to tell the story of those tumultuous sessions in January, 1969.
Billed as an “immersive accompaniment” to the 2021 Peter Jackson-directed “Get Back” documentary, “The Beatles: Get Back To Let It Be” exhibit is presented with the full cooperation of Apple, as well as Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, the estates of John Lennon and George Harrison, and session producer Glyn Johns.
Among the items displayed at the Rock Hall Beatles exhibit, all seen in the “Get Back” film are:
– Handwritten lyrics to “I’ve Got A Feeling,” “Dig A Pony” and “I Me Mine”
– Linda McCartney and Ethan Russell’s intimate photos from Twickenham, Apple Studio and the Apple rooftop depicting the band at work on the album
– Paul’s black and grey shirt you see him wearing in Apple studio
– John Lennon’s legendary “granny” eyeglasses, Epiphone guitar and jean jacket
– That snazzy pink pinstriped suit George wore at Apple Studio during the sessions
– Glyn Johns personal acetate of his original Get Back album mix, later rejected by The Beatles
In addition to those way cool items, the Hall have set up three screening rooms where you can view videos showing different aspects of the Jackson documentary, all in high def, as well as rare audio from those January, 1969 sessions.
For Beatles fans, this will bring back that incredible weekend in 2021 when we got to see the newly updated “Get Back” documentary! The price is included in the price of admission to the Hall.
