(DISC ONE)

TWICKENHAM SET DISC 5: "DANCE STEPS LIKE THE SHADOWS"

Disc 5 continues with performances from January 9th.

In segment 1 of Disc 5, we are treated to the best possible sound quality of material that will be recognizable to those who owned the infamous Sweet Apple Trax LP. George, who is not very pleased with the idea of a live show at all, regardless of the venue, throws a jab as Paul talks about the stage and equipment set up, with his interjection that they still have to learn their dance steps "... like the Shadows".

Segment 2 seems to indicate that songs 9.57 & 9.58 in DDSI are mistakenly numbered. The tape for this disc reveals that the 9.56 version of "Get Back" flows through 2 different "Get Back"'s straight into 9.59. Only portions of this segment were on Sweet Apple Trax, and again, all segments are included here in the best available quality.

It begins with an early version of "No Pakistanis/Get Back". It should be noted that DDSI goes into wonderful detail about the origins of the subject matter of "No Pakistanis" (as well as that of "Commonwealth/Enouch Powell/Get Off" from Segment 3). To summarize, they all stem from the morning newspaper/TV reports about, and the reactions to, Parliament member Enoch Powell's re-patriotation movement (The sending back to their country of origin, all non-white citizens of the British Empire living on visas in England).

When the song ends, Michael asks Paul about "the one he was doing earlier", and Paul responds with a riff resembling the guitar part of "Let It Be". Paul goes on to say that it would be "nice after this one", implying that he would use the riff again in " ... Pakistanis". George, once again reprising his role as musical arranger for the band, says that "it would be great in that, but being that it's such a nice bit", Paul should use it elsewhere. This discussion is followed by a demonstration of the riff in question, some experimentation, and then a free-form jam loosely based on "Get Back".

Segment 3 offers not only an upgrade of previous Sweet Apple Trax material, it also offers previously unavailable run-throughs of "For You Blue". After a few oldies and some stream-of-consciousness jams, George finally gets the band's attention to tackle "For You Blue". The first attempt is cut short by Paul because he cannot hear George, but it is followed by a rather tight run through. A discussion about the arrangement of the tune takes p[ace as Paul continuously pounds out the bass line, Inevitably, the song starts again, but breaks down at the start of the first verse. Paul, however, keeps going. Soon they all fall back into a brief jam that a]most borders on morphing into "Mean Mr. Mustard"! Apparently Paul picks up on this as he advises "Let's pick and choose John ... must discrepenate"[sic]. George starts again (on acoustic), joined by Ringo and Paul. George stops, and is still discussing his choice of instruments as Paul begins doing an Elvis vocal goof.

Next is another example of the lack of respect George's material received from the others, especially John. George asks if they should perform other people's tunes as well as their own for the show. John says he doesn't know any and that he can hardly bare doing George's, " ... never mind strangers"'!. George comes back with a masked dig, saying that others' songs are "much better than ours"' to which Lennon replies "That's why I don't learn them!" With that, George starts again, while Paul continues voicing goofy lines over him. Any hope of a serious attempt is long gone.

Segment 4 offers a great deal of previously unavailable material, excepting small fragments which were "teased" on the vinyl Code Name Russia, or which appeared on the Orange CD series Rockin' Movie Stars. This segment features a number of "Let It Be" performances. The musical arrangement finds Paul on piano and John on bass, with the recording mixed under and over conversations picked up by Michael's "spy mikes". John is clearly not pleased about having to play bass, and he restlessly rifts through all sorts of oldies. After John's order to "get on your fucking instruments", Ringo and George finally join in during the "Jenny Jenny" medley. This eventually leads to a group attempt at "Let It Be".

Sulpy disagrees with the liner notes and states that this should be listed as GB9.57 because it's the very common "No Pakistanis" version of "Get Back". However, Sulpy admits he made a mistake by attributing GB9.58 to another performance of Get Back which should follow since there is no edits in the roll and that GB9.58 does not appear.

(DISC TWO)

TWICKENHAM SET DISC 6: "DICK JAMES IS A FASCIST BUM"

There is very little of Disc number 6 that surfaced before on vinyl. In fact, the entire has segment I is not even mentioned in DDSI. The few other items that have been out (on Code Name Russia or on the Orange Rockin' Movie Stars CD's) are here in the best available quality.

January 10th is the infamous day that George left the band. The entire project; the lack of direction, focus, energy, cooperation, as well as one another's respective personalities, were getting on the nerves of all involved. No one could agree on ideas for the live show, and they found the facilities to be less than desirable, and not at all conducive to creating music. And then there was the ever present cameras and microphones. The communication skills (and the motivation) of the four were at an all time low, and the idea that any comment, argument, etc would be captured for all eternity on tape could not have been an incentive to FULLY speak one's mind.

The morning segments hardly indicate anything brewing to cause George's departure. Moods seem good. Paul is at the piano, following his daily pattern running through various tunes. Over his playing, a number of conversations take place, some more audible than others, due to the mixing of the "spy mikes". These dialogues deal with smoking cigars verses cigarettes, getting stopped for speeding, and how a uniform can change people. George then talks about a film maker that he's invited to drop by later to show some of his multi-screen/image work that George feels could be incorporated as incidental background for their music.

Obviously, Michael is not taken by the idea of another filmmaker entering his turf, and changes the subject by asking about Alexis (Magic Alex). George goes into the story about how they hooked up with him, and then explains that Alex has designed quite a lot of things, but hasn't made them because he's been so busy building the new studios [HA HA HA! - ed.]. Michael asks if the device Alex designed to put on records to prevent people from taping them will work. George thinks so, and everyone seems to think it's a marvelous idea. Ringo points out that John thinks it makes for "bad Beatles". George defends his position stating that Americans with those cassette recorders [a VERY expensive item in '69 - ed.] will run off copies and sell them. Michael chimes in with "If you're rich enough to buy a cassette recorder, you're rich enough to buy an LP", obviously missing the point. The ironic part of this whole conversation is that they are worried about some kid knockin' off a few copies of their new album, while Magic Alex is taking them all for more money that any American cassette taper could ever pocket!

Later, the talk turns to the upcoming Apple meeting to be held at Ringo's house that weekend. George also tells John that Neil wants to meet with them tomorrow about "exciting good news". John asks if it's about "pig". George answers "No, not with him, but with some of the other pigs". From the secretive code and tone, there is probably new information regarding the police involved in their past drug busts. During a conversation with Dick James, Paul launches into "Get Back" (10.0j). He stops and comments to Glyn that George's chord "get back, ching" is a bit "passe". Paul wants something more "Pete Townshend"! Paul continues to experiment with various tunes, and the conversation turns to cars, before Paul finally gets things started.

The "Get Back" rehearsal seems to go quite well. They are making progress; working on both the structure and the lyrics, which results in a very enjoyable, upbeat version, complete with the Pakistani political verse. After a short diversion into "Hi Heel Sneakers", Paul suggests that both John & George could each take a solo, like in "Long Tall Sally", which prompts a brief, very loose jam of that tune, mixed in with "Get Back". John tries the opening of the song a few different ways, and this is followed by Paul trying to convey to Ringo his ideas for the drum bits.

Whatever caused George to leave must have happened at lunch. The next segment here picks up just after George has left, and three VERY DRUNK Beatles (plus Yoko) are in the middle of a jam that began with John's reprise of "Soon be home", from the Who's "A Quick One While He's Away". This jam, which sounds a bit like "Don't Worry Kyoko", moves through all sorts of intensity levels. It features ferocious drumming from Ringo, manic guitar from John, mega-feedback from Paul and a wide range of "ah"-ing from Yoko. Tremendous.

Next up is the feedback version of "I've Got A Feeling". (This must have been a liquid lunch!), and a scream filled send-up of "Don't Let Me Down". They try to continue on with rehearsals by attempting "Maxwell ...". Ringo starts in, and is reminded of "Mack The Knife", of which he sings a line or two. Paul comes back with a few notes and the opening words of "Teddy Boy" (they always kidded Ringo for being a real Ted in his early days). "Maxwell ... " turns into a drunken parody, and it's quite obvious that they are not gonna get any serious work done. It is interesting to note that the Beatles themselves are not heard talking directly about George leaving by this point, but they refer to the event with their sarcastic calls of "take it" and "solo" at the appropriate points in a few of the songs. It seems that George Martin and Michael are the only ones voicing any concern.
