The Beatles: Get Back Review: A Shapeless Documentary With A Fantastic Ending

The new 8-hour, 3-part docuseries "The Beatles: Get Back," branded as a Disney+ Original and hailing from blockbuster filmmaker Peter Jackson, raises two unavoidable and unfortunately unanswerable questions.

"I think he had an idea in his head of what he wanted it to sound like, but he couldn't describe it. He couldn't express it. And he was waiting for somebody to bring it out of the air."

Said Shiela Bromberg, whose obituary I blogged 3 days ago.  The quote appears in the center of the interview embedded below, which a reader called to my attention. Bromberg was the harpist on The Beatles' "She's Leaving Home." The "he" is Paul McCartney:  ADDED: If you love Ringo, be sure to watch the video through to the end.
