(Regarding the latest news)
Gawd and though the Beatles demise (from the White album to the split) roughly took around 2 1/2 years, the modern day GB chapter dragging on more for than the original period alone has gotten so far out of control its not even funny and is beyond a f****n joke!!!
I tell you what they really know how to make the hard core fans blood boil.

Very much doubt the excuse of "authoring challenges". People have apparently received copies and they are absolutely fine.

Maybe there is a blame game going on about who is to be held accountable for the faulty audio on the withdrawn release. From experience, everyone in the chain will deny responsibility and point the finger at someone else. The mastering plant will say it's Disney's fault, Disney will say it's the mastering plant's fault, and Apple will say it the socks and sandals' fault. There is a lot of money involved here, so I expect they are squabbling over who is to cough up the lolly.

I don't think it has anything remotely to do with there being a deluxe edition in the works.

I for one am not especially surprised it's going tits up (again), and nor am I that bothered. (We waited half a century for the Let It Be film before giving up.) We have all the footage we are going to get already, anyway. The rest of the package isn't Beatles product, it's just what the network of corporations and controllers and marketing men are doing with things the group left behind all those years ago. I don't need anything "official" from Disney. The stuff on this forum is usually far better than the commercial products anyway.

So, we've had the Peter Jackson movie and audio for six months now. I've only watched it the once, when it was first screened, but I don't remember there being too many complete song performances - I think it jumped around a lot from song snippet to conversation to song snippet etc.

I was wondering if anyone has done any analysis of what's there audio-wise? Is there a list of performances available? I'm quite interested in trying to extract the more complete songs and see if they can be presented as listenable tracks rather than just bits and pieces.

Makes me wonder how PJ feels about this, to be the creator of an excellent series and to now observe this horse fking soap opera play out just to get a release date for a physical release so the non streaming community can have a view of it maybe now he genuinely understands how the fans feel.

I doubt that but a handful who buy it will not have previously seen it
