On this day in 1969 The Beatles are in the Apple studios working on final recordings that were not apt for the rooftop concert.  The songs included:  “The Long And Winding Road“, “Let It Be” and “Two Of Us”.  They also just jammed into a take of “Lady Madonna” that was not considered good enough to be released.
