Updated April 9. Last week, Sir Paul told USA Today that he was working on a reissue of Let It Be, saying "We're cleaning up the film and going back to the original tape, before Phil Spector got hold of it." (see April 3) Today's Daily Telegraph provides a bit more information on the project. According to Beatles activist, Keith Badman, "There's been no proper video of Let It Be before, but Apple has done an amazing job of cleaning up the picture quality. John Lennon and George Harrison hated the film, which is why it's been hidden away all these years. Lennon used to describe it as a 'project set up by Paul for Paul'." Sir Paul still maintains a positive spin on the project saying that in the film, "We showed how a break-up of a group works. We didn't realize that we were sort of breaking up as it was happening."
An Apple spokesman is being cautious not to divulge too many details about the project saying, "It's all up in the air and I can't say anything more than that at this stage."
