Thought I'd post this to see something that may not have been seen in entirety by many. The song I like best is "I've Got A Feeling" in the middle of the 22 minute performance. It shows Paul and John at their best together.
Something other of note is Lennon playing lead guitar the entire time. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l1TEkGFbdpk

Wow, I had actually never seen this before. The very proper English gentleman with his pipe firmly in place climbing up the ladder on an opposite roof really made me laugh. Awesome vid. Thanks for posting.

Not sure but listening to him on this makes it clear why he wasn't the lead guitarist most of the time, he blew at it..

Actually John was only playing lead on Get Back. George was doing it for the other songs and on some he was fingerpicking the leads.

Yeah, I watched it all the way through and George was good on his songs but John BUTCHERED the lead work on "Get Back"..

I can tell you what probably happened without even being there, it happened to me in my band many times over the years. I'm a good "musician". I've been the drummer, the bass player and the 2nd guitarist in our band on/off for 13 years now. I'm a good guitar player, but an average lead player. We've written songs before and I've done a lead lick or so and said "Hey, I'll take the lead in that song" thinking I can pull it off then when the time comes to actually play it, knowing I'm THE lead on that song, I butcher it. Never fails. That's what we're probably seeing in that video, John probably (I'm not a big Beatles fan so correct me if I'm wrong) wrote that song, did the lead work on the album cut and then told them "I'll handle this one live", then when the time comes to actually step up in front of people and pull of the lead lick he choked...

Is Billy Preston on the rooftop?  Nine minutes in and haven't seen him but his keyboard playing is all over the place.  And if they clearly overdubbed much of this why not fix the sloppy lead work?

You can see him at the 8:59 mark during I Got A Feeling

Glad you enjoyed it. That's why I posted it-I had never seen it in entirety either.

Fantastic! Have never seen the whole thing before.

I have read elsewhere that the guy with the pipe was a law enforcement type.

Glad they stopped when they did. I would have hated to see them go another 7 or 8 years and have had to hear their disco album.
