The history of rock has emblazoned so many iconic images into public memory. Much like the image of Jimi Hendrix burning his Stratocaster on stage, and the Beatles’ concert on the roof of Apple Corps HQ in London on January 30th, 1969, is essentially a cult classic. It was a momentous occasion, not only because the Fab Four were all together, but also because it was the last time John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr made a public appearance together. Filmed for Michael Lindsay-Hogg’s documentary Let It Be, which would be released the following year, this concert sees Billy Preston accompany the Beatle’s on the electric piano. Even if disagreements within the band were rife (Harrison had actually left the band just before this concert), this short performance—which was interrupted by the police 40 minutes in—is still an essential (final) chapter of their ten-year saga which was cut too short. There are various pirate copies of this concert on the roof, but the 2022 version is mixed in stereo by Giles Martin, son of the one-and-only George Martin, the producer of the Fab Four. There are three takes of Get Back, two of Don’t Let Me Down and I’ve Got A Feeling, and one of One After 909, Dig a Pony and God Save the Queen. The first take of I’ve Got a Feeling, One After 909 and Dig a Pony would end up on the 1970 album Let It Be. The release of this Rooftop Performance follows the Disney+ broadcast of The Beatles: Get Back, a documentary by Peter Jackson totalling a whopping 7 hours and 45 minutes of run-time. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Britpop in 10 Albums

“If punk was about getting rid of hippies, then I'm getting rid of grunge.” It was with this sentence from Damon Albarn in 1993 that England invaded the stage previously dominated by Nirvana and Seattle grunge. Britpop is deeply linked to politics and local identity and emerged just as Tony Blair and New Labour were entering the scene. English romanticism was once again becoming attractive compared to the American identity, which was considered too hollow in the UK. Make way for “Cool Britannia”.

1972: The Album’s Golden Year
