  9. I did a deep dive into these sessions years ago,and even when I was picking up on some of the group dynamics, it seemed forced and depressing. John interrupts George, Paul pounds away at the piano or bass, Ringo goes ker-plunk. George’s guitar effects (wah-wah; Leslie) never changes, and they’re rarely in time or in tune for long. Every now and then, there’s a good take or a jolt of energy, but not for long. The best songs aren’t deal for jamming (”Let it Be, for instance) and the oldies are interesting but usually incomplete. The presence of Billy Preston improves things. He deserved equal billing on the album cover. The movie is awful, and whatever miracles Peter Jackson works in his documentary, putting a happy face on this train wreck won’t make these sessions better. John was right when he called them the sh*ttiest sessions ever.
