Now and Then’s eventful journey to fruition took place over five decades and is the product of conversations and collaborations between the four Beatles that go on to this day. The long mythologised John Lennon demo was first worked on in February 1995 by Paul, George and Ringo as part of The Beatles Anthology project but it remained unfinished, partly because of the impossible technological challenges involved in working with the vocal John had recorded on tape in the 1970s. For years it looked like the song could never be completed. But in 2022 there was a stroke of serendipity. A software system developed by Peter Jackson and his team, used throughout the production of the documentary series Get Back, finally opened the way for the uncoupling of John’s vocal from his piano part. As a result, the original recording could be brought to life and worked on anew with contributions from all four Beatles. This remarkable story of musical archaeology reflects The Beatles’ endless creative curiosity and shared fascination with technology. It marks the completion of the last recording that John, Paul and George and Ringo will get to make together and celebrates the legacy of the foremost and most influential band in popular music history.

    We mostly all LOVE the new Beatles last single, but after hearing the orchestra in the documentary, would have been nice to fade the song with the orchestra slowly up to the front in volume, with Pauls bass, Ringo's drums, etc.. BUT still crazy LOVE the outcome! I wish Ringo would have rerecorded his current sounding drums on Love Me Do. The snare drum in this stereo version is too muffled, but as great as it sounds in stereo, I can't wait to hear She Loves You in stereo.

    Es imposible escuchar este mini documental y no soltar unas cuantas agudas lágrimas.
    Eso imposible oirlo sin escucharlo.
    Es imposible escucharlo, verlo y no sentir.

    Los beatles no solo son y serán la mejor banda que existe,sino que es casi inalterable su trascendencia,porque su música más que otra cosa solo quiere transmitir lo que tanta falta SIEMPRE nos hecho y en estos tiempos aún más para poder hacer un cambio verdadero El amor,y todo lo que se hace con el no solo transciende sino que se vuelve eterno,porque siempre va haber alguien que vuelva a sentir ese cosquilleo en todo su cuerpo sintiendo que el querer,el amar y ser amado nunca está de más al escucharlo.

    Tengo 17 años actualmente y estoy profundamente orgulloso de pertenecer a esta maravillosa generación que gracias a su avances tecnológicos puede restaurar y hacer que otro tema de los beatles vuelva a sonar demostrando que lo bueno nunca muere y siempre será recordado, Amado y seguido por los siguientes que se sientan seres humanos.

    Y Esta canción es precisamente eso un homenaje para los que ya no están y para los que aún seguimos y estamos escuchando tan indescriptible tema darnos un poco de paz,armonía y tranquilidad ante tanta violencia y tormenta.

    Recordando que siempre va a haber un dia de primavera tras un invierno tan frio🌼☮️.

    Such a beautiful song. How lucky to have been alive during the music of the Beatles.
