Expanded 'Let It Be' DVD Due September

Published: 2005-07-28
The 1970 documentary that caught the Beatles' demise on film is finally set to be released on DVD. Let It Be has not been available to own on home recording for over 20 years, and after years of restoring and reediting, a revamped version with bonus footage will land in the hands of Beatles fanatics everywhere.

Although the details on what Let It Be extras will be included with the DVD aren't certain, it's expected that the original 80-minute documentary will be expanded with audio recordings recovered in 2003, as well as all 35-minutes of the legendary rooftop performance at Apple headquarters.

There is no exact release date for the DVD, but word on the street is that Apple Records will put the remastered Let It Be doc on shelves this September. Originally intended to catch the Fab Four 'live' at work in the studio, both the Let It Be documentary and album capture the immensely influential and beloved band falling apart at the seams.

Let It Be also won an Oscar and a Grammy for best original song/score. It seems that even when not at their best they couldn't help being above average.

I have been hearing about Apple's release of this DVD for years. I saw this in 1973 on 16mm. That was the first & last time. As a life-long fan...I am growing weary. Where can I get a copy?
