    And Paul holding his hand in front of the mic saying "how's the balance, alright?" :laugh:

    To me it's like the Van Halen M&M's thing: what else did they get wrong!

    If I remember correctly, John give a low-voiced 'f-you' to Paul, when he says one more time on "Long & Winding Road".

    There are a few f bombs in part 1 if I heard correctly...

    Didn't it say that George was 13 when he joined the band? In 1958 he would have been 15.

    Paul is clearly stressed these few days in January 1969. We know he hasn't washed for days ("Jock Itch" will be mentioned tomorrow) and is knocking back the alcohol at lunchtimes. No wonder he comes close to losing it over George's painstaking perfectionism. Paul even snaps at John at one point before laughing it off!! In retrospect there was no possibility of doing a paying concert in two weeks time. George walking out was a safety circuit-break for all of them it turned out.

    And being the recorder and custodian of lyrics! Plus a semi-collaborator in some cases. I loved that "Long and Winding Road" chat, a less (unintentionally) bossy side of Paul.

    Do we have any idea why Paul was so stressed?

    Just finished part 1. OMG what a gift to a Beatle nerd like me.
    Some thoughts:

    Has anyone said "Jaysus Shut up Paul!" to the screen yet?

    I find George's musical ideas (before he quits) are all pretty sound!

    I remember why I liked John so much when I first became a Beatle fan.

    Paul is SO creative and a genius! He can't help himself!

    And seeing Linda kinda made me feel sad...

    The crazy deadline, the time away from live performance, the loss/absence of Brian? Concern about John bringing relatively little material? They articulate a fair amount of it. I would have been anxious and control freaky too

    It’s a great documentary so far. A minor quibble I have is one too many instances of MLH talking about his amphitheater idea. I’d rather have different interactions with MLH shown just for variety's sake

    Fair enough.

    I wonder if Paul imposed the project because he felt that the group was close to splitting organically in 68 - John working with Yoko, George looking into solo work with Wonderwall, and Ringo branching into films.

    He does say he feels he has to be the boss because Daddy (Brian) has gone away now and they're alone in their own Butlins of the doldrums.

    Feels like when a good employee is promoted to management above their skill level - hence unease and edginess.

    I'm only 1.5 hours and I've thoroughly enjoyed it overall thus far. This one is a keeper for repeated viewings from Beatle nerds. Now for family time and all that.

    I’ve often thought that this whole idea would have worked if they simply waited until Ringo was done with his movie and therefore weren’t facing such a tight deadline. The show also could’ve easily occurred anywhere in England, since it would be on the summer or early fall at the latest. Who knows, maybe the time off rejuvenates them. Coming back just 2 1/2 months after the White Album was completed and undertaking such an ambitious project with an unbelievably tight deadline was a definite recipe for anxiety and discord.

    So, I’m not talking about the shots where the images deliberately do not match the audio - but I am often noticing the matched visual-audio shots seem slightly out-of-sync. It just doesn’t feel right - particularly on the more ghosty-closeups.

    What's the source of the info on Paul's lack of hygiene during 1969 sessions?

    I can never understand with two Lennon classics started ,we get I dig a Phony? I sort of Think the whole Idea of a live show kept some better songs off the LP ,The Across the Universe inclusion seems crazy

    So far this film is fantastic and indeed a truly historical document of a truly historical group of people making truly historical music. I’m enthralled and wishing they filmed every recording session they ever had because I would watch them. Isn’t It a Pity made me cry at the end. And this is just Part 1.

    I can feel the intimacy of being a fly in the wall, it's surreal and engrossing. You're there...heartbreaking to see the scene when George left. PJ did great.
