Apple Studios, Savile Row, London
Producer:
George Martin
Engineer: Glyn Johns
The 15th day of the Get Back/Let It Be sessions saw The Beatles focus mainly on two songs: Let It Be and The Long And Winding Road.


This Sunday session marked the first time in almost a year that The Beatles had worked on both days of a weekend. They were joined in the studio by Linda McCartney and her daughter Heather.
George Harrison and Ringo Starr were the first to arrive, and the session began with Harrison performing some of his own songs alone on an acoustic guitar: Isn't It A Pity, Let It Down and the unreleased Window, Window. He also helped Starr with the composition of Octopus's Garden, part of which was included in the Let It Be film.
Billy Preston was back in the studio, following an absence on the previous day, and helped to shape the song's arrangement. Let It Be, in particular, benefited from Preston's organ playing, and by the end of the day they almost had a version suitable for release.
The session closed with more than an hour spent on The Long And Winding Road, with Paul McCartney on piano and John Lennon playing bass guitar. Although the playing was often amateurish in the beginning, towards the end the arrangement came together, and by the end of the day they had a satisfactory take. This was included on Anthology 3, and was adorned with orchestral and choral overdubs by Phil Spector for the Let It Be album.
Also on that album was a snippet of Dig It, which was part of a 12-minute take recorded on this day, and cover versions of Rip It Up, Shake, Rattle And Roll and Blue Suede Shoes were issued as a medley on Anthology 3.
Of the other songs, Suicide was written by McCartney as a teenager, and a snippet was later included on his debut album. I Told You Before was an improvised jam led by Harrison and Preston, which The Beatles returned to on the following day.
There were also cover versions of You Really Got A Hold On Me and Kansas City, the latter based on Wilbert Harrison's 1959 arrangement rather than Little Richard's. Versions of Jerry Lee Lewis' Great Ball Of Fire and High School Confidential were marred by McCartney being unable to remember the lyrics.
