Hi all,

I was lucky enough last week to accompany my brother to a special
editing session for a new Let It Be promo DVD he was assembling in a
Los
Angeles
editing suite last week (he didn't actually work on the forthcoming DVD
release).
Anyway, I was lucky enough to be able to spend several hours watching
the
nearly
final product and combing through a bunch of production notes.

The film and features I watched were on a hard drive so I have no idea
what the actual discs or the DVD packaging will look like, sorry. Some
of the
footage was still silent and not all of the options I clicked on
worked, but
here's a
very rough preview. It's apparently not due until March 2005 so it may
still
change.

Let It Be DVD

"3 disc 5.1 special edition" with extra features to be followed by a
single "plain vanilla" disc 6 months later.

The special edition features all the original film footage that was
used in the original 1970 theatrical release of Let It Be spread over
the
first 2 discs (Disc 1
is entitled Twickenham and Disc 2 Apple). Over 79 minutes in total of
previously unseen
footage has been added into both discs. An optional on-screen apple
logo is
available that
pops up in the screen corner whenever "new" material appears, but there
is no
branching
option that allows you to either select the new footage or the original
footage.

I didn't have time to watch the entire 2 discs but from what I did see
the Octopuses Garden sequence has been almost doubled. Entirely new
rehearsal
sequences have been added for Something, I Lost My Little Girl, All
Things
Must Pass, She
Came In Thru The Bathroom Window, Plain Yoko Jam, Fancy My Chances With
You,
Rock'n'Roll Music, Blues Aren't For Ringo, Isn't It A Pity and more.
There
seems to be
heaps more footage of George Harrison.

Both discs apparently feature an audio commentary by The Beatles with
Michael Lindsay Hogg, Yoko Ono and Linda Eastman (all culled from audio
recordings
made during the sessions). This didn't work yet on the demo I watched.

The third disc features even more bonus material including:

AS NATURE INTENDED: 34 minute documentary on the Let It Be sessions,
includes new interviews with George Martin, Billy Preston and Michael
Lindsay
Hogg, as well as archive interviews with John Lennon and George, Paul
and
Ringo
interviews from the Anthology series (including a few snippets not seen
before).

BEHIND CLOSED DOORS: A collection of rare footage of The Beatles
recording in the studio (none of this is "Let It Be" era material). The
footage listed
includes And I Love Her, Paperback Writer, Rain, All You Need Is Love,
Hey
Bulldog, Lady
Madonna, Helter Skelter, Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da, Blackbird, Tutti Frutti,
Hey Jude
(this
track alone went for 20 minutes), St Louis Blues.

ACROSS TO ABBEY ROAD: The Abbey Road album tracks of Oh Darling, She
Came In Through The Bathroom Window, Something and Maxwell's Silver
Hammer
all matched up to footage from the Let It Be rehearsals to create brand
new "video clips".

CHIMNEY SWEEP: Option didn't work - no details on notes.

BEHIND THE SHUTTERS: Option didn't work - no details on notes.

THE NAKED TRUTH: A featurette on the production of the Naked album
including footage of Paul McCartney at a playback session. Ends with a
new
clip
created for Across The Universe using Let It Be footage.

TRAILERS: Let It Be, The Beatles Anthology, Yellow Submarine, The
First US Visit.

THE BALLAD OF JOHN AND YOKO: Option didn't work - no details on notes.
