The album itself has a kind of jagged, raw quality. It is often quite clear that the band is playing live and laying off of the overdubs: little polish is present.Read more ›
Now for the comparisons of the two albums. First of all, as many people expected, the sound quality is much better, and there is virtually none of the original tape hiss (The only exception is disk 2, which is mostly studio chatter)
Now for the songs:
"Two of Us" the song starts immediately, without the short intro that is on the original. The song itself is the same.
"Dig a Pony" is also the same, but it does not have the false start that was included on the original.
"Across the Universe" is now a beautiful Acoustic song, without the orchestra or choir. This is one of the best songs on the Naked release.
"I Me Mine" is nearly the same. The only difference I noticed was that the stereo separation was slightly modified.
"Dig It" is not on the Naked Album.
"Let it Be" is a different take. A little shorter, by maybe about 15 seconds. Paul's voice has more life to it. The organ is much more defined and louder. The backing voices of the other Beatles sound much better. The guitar solo is different, but better I think. The drums toward the end are somewhat different, but only serious Beatle fans will notice it. There is none of the orchestral arrangement from the original. This is a great song, and I think this new version is better.
"Maggie Mae" was the other song that was not included on the Naked Album.Read more ›
