  Get Back (1969 - 1970)
  by Alan W. Pollack
Previous
  In the last years of their career the final split of the group already became visible in the growing number of solo projects. As an antidote to their conflicts in January 1969 the Beatles initiated their Get Back project at the Twickenham Film Studios in London. In April they released the single Get Back / Don't Let Me Down, followed in May by The Ballad Of John And Yoko / Old Brown Shoe. Some of the other results of this tribute to their roots are collected on the album Abbey Road (September 1969), the single Let It Be / You Know My Name (March 1970) and the last album Let It Be (May 1970). To his analyses of these songs Pollack adds his views on the two original songs on the recent Anthology CD's: Free As A Bird and Real Love.
