At Night The Stars Put On A Show For Free
Have I told you lately that I love The Beatles? How do they do it? It's been 50 years since "Ain't She Sweet," and I still feel like they are surprising me.
I've seen this rooftop concert a few times. This time around, it felt like I had never seen it before. Considering the circumstances and conditions surrounding the gig, the lads pull this off in spades. "Get Back" has always been in my top ten of least favorite Beatles' songs, and the boys play it one and a half times in this 21 minute set. And somehow, I could have watched them do it one and a half times more. I don't think anyone really talks about this performance so much and they should.
