Drugs, Divorce and a Slipping Image - The Complete, Unauthorized Story of The Beatles' 'Get Back' Sessions

The definitive guide to the Get Back sessions, released in 1994 and updated in 2007. In the author's own words:

New, completely revised edition! This new volume isn t just a compilation of material from the 1994 book Drugs, Divorce and a Slipping Image (also later published as 'Get Back') and 'The 910's Guide To The Beatles Outtakes Part Two: The Complete Get Back Sessions' (2001). I've re-listened to the entire canon of available Get Back session tapes, come up with a bunch of new conclusions (and even a handful of new identifications!), and pretty much re-written half the book from scratch. In addition, great effort has been made to improve readability of the book. Songs have now been put into groups (generally by Nagra reel, or series of them), rather than describing each performance separately, as was done in the original. In every way, this is the book we wished we could have written in 1994.

As the paperback version is out of print, you can buy a PDF version on the author's website

About

From “Drugs, Divorce and a Slipping Image – The Complete, Unauthorized Story of The Beatles’ ‘Get Back’ Sessions, by Doug Sulpy:

The “Get Back” sessions begin on a large, open soundstage at Twickenham Film Studios, London. At this point The Beatles view these sessions as rehearsals for a television concert, and not as preparation for a new album. Consequently, their performances are both unfocused and highly informal.

The main topic of discussion on this first day is the embryonic plan for a live performance (or series of performances). Paul, perhaps thinking of the promotional films for “Hey Jude” and “Revolution” which had been filmed at Twickenham Studios several months earlier, prefers to have the show take place there, although he muses at one point that they might hold it outdoors. John feels that rehearsing in the middle of a monstrous soundstage doesn’t make much sense, and suggests that a smaller room would be more appropriate. George seems lukewarm to the entire project, and complains about the acoustics in the large, open space. Despite these discussions, there is no attempt to make any firm decisions regarding the date or venue of the show.

The songs “Don’t Let Me Down,” “Two Of us” and “l’ve Got A Feeling” were all introduced and rehearsed during this session, and these songs dominate the day’s work. Other original compositions included “Sun King” (later recorded for “Abbey Road”) “On The Road To Marrakesh,” (recorded With a different set of lyrics as “Jealous Guy” on John’s 1971 album “Imagine”) and early versions of”Dig A Pony,” “Let It Down” and “All Things Must Pass” (the latter two recorded by George for his 1970 album “All Things Must Pass”).
