Get Back – Together is the second album by the reformed Liverpool band The Quarrymen, which was the band that, in its original conception, evolved into The Beatles. The album was recorded in Liverpool in 1997 (produced/engineered and mixed by Lance Thomas) and released the same year. The content of the album is drawn from the early repertoire of the original Quarrymen (which included John Lennon, Paul McCartney and George Harrison) and features fifteen songs that were regularly performed live by The Quarrymen in the late 1950s. The album's title refers to The Beatles song "Get Back".
