Get Back was performed by Phil Lesh & Friends. The song was also performed by a group including Bob Weir in 2013 and included on the Weir Here #14 online broadcast.

Don't Let Me Down was recorded a number of times by the Beatles during the Let It Be recording session and twice during the rooftop concert in January 1969.
