Between the closing days of the Beatles through to the point at which McCartney had just formed Wings and Lennon had just left the UK to live in New York, some of their finest individual solo work appeared.
Composing Outside the Beatles – Lennon and McCartney 1967 – 1972 is an independent documentary film which reviews the music and impact of Lennon and McCartney as solo composers, during this first post-Beatles period. From the avant-garde, Yoko influenced, brace of Lennon/Ono albums, via some superb singles and albums from both players, and culminating with the first Wings record from Macca, and Lennon celebrating his new city of residence with the most political songs he ever wrote,this film shows how and why theycomposed the music they did during this era and illustrates their usage of old and new techniques as well as their continuance toborrow from each other despite being in both legal and personal disputes at the time.
Drawing on rare footage, archive and exclusive interviews, classic performances and penetrating revelations from close friends of the pair, fellow musicians, Beatles academics and musicologists, we discover here the true story of how their music was composed when writing alone or with new partners.
