Get Back/Don't Let me Down

Released on May 5, 1969, Get Back went to #1 for five weeks, Don't Let Me Down peaked at #35. Besides the Loretta Martin and Jo-jo verse there was actually a third verse but Paul didn't like the quality so it was deleted. It was actually a protest verse:

"Meanwhile back at home there's nineteen Pakistanis,
Living in a council flat
Candidate for Labour tells them what the plan is,
Then he tells them where its at"

This live version was filmed on the rooftop of the Apples Studio in London.
