It’s January 1969 and The Beatles are commercially at their peak with a number one Album in the charts and the summers smash hit ‘Hey Jude.’ Professionally things couldn’t be worse, however. Paul has convinced them to rehearse for a live show before the cameras, but his band mates have misgivings which will only multiply as the days progress. This is ‘The Winter of Discontent’. And we’re going to ... more

  • deep, deep dives

    This amazingly detailed journey forensically explores the events of January 1969 as captured on tape while the Beatles were recording what would become the Let It Be album and film. Nick provides terrific context and busts myths along the way. This is not for the casual listener, but true, incurable Beatlemaniacs will enjoy every minute. Plus, his production values are terrific.

We hear every minute of the full audio in real time (with none of the invented scenes Peter Jackson made for dramatic effect in his series). At times, our host, Nick pauses the audio to lovingly fill us in on helpful context ... more
