On this day in 1969, May 28, Glyn Johns finished mixing and compiling the Beatles album Get Back from the January 1969 Apple Studios sessions. The Beatles rejected it, and Allen Klein wanted a hold on the Get Back tapes altogether so that Apple could find time to turn their TV documentary on the sessions into a movie for theatrical release.

After another Johns-complied Get Back album failed to make the grade in January 1970, Phil Spector was brought in to see what he could do. By then, the album and the movie were both renamed Let it Be.
