Digitally remastered digipak edition of this classic 1970 album from The Beatles featuring 'The Long And Winding Road', 'Across The Universe', 'Let It Be', 'Get Back' and many more. The album has been remastered at Abbey Road Studios in London utilizing state of the art recording technology alongside vintage studio equipment, carefully maintaining the authenticity and integrity of the original analogue recordings. Within the CD's new packaging, the booklet includes detailed historical notes along with informative recording notes. A newly produced mini-documentary on the making of the album is included as a QuickTime file on each album. The documentary contains archival footage, rare photographs and never-before-heard studio chat from The Beatles, offering a unique and very personal insight into the studio atmosphere. Capitol. NOTE: Let It Be was never released in mono and is not available in The Beatles In Mono boxset.
Sloppy in conception, and even sometimes in the playing, Let It Be often gets a bad rap. Unfairly, as it's often as charming, well written, and (oh yeah) rocking as the Beatles' "better" albums; it's also more outright fun than Abbey Road, the masterpiece it followed into the stores. With Lennon and McCartney working together on the perfect "I've Got a Feeling," "Two of Us," and "Dig a Pony," it's hard to believe these guys were about to implode. --Rickey Wright

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 ›
But some of the songs are good: besides the two mentioned, Two Of Us is a great moment, and Across the Universe, which seems out of place here, is a dreamy Lennon track that works despite the fact that Spector essentially took the original version (found on Past Masters, Vol. II) and slowed it down, making Lennon's vocals sound somewhat croaky. I Me Mine works too, although it isn't one of Harrison's best by any means.
This album is unique in that its the most rootsy and bluesy of any Beatles' disc, but after hearing the outtakes on the Anthology, and learning from various sources the other material that the band had also been working on at the time (some of which cropped up on Abbey Road) you have to wonder how much better this could have been. Still, it is the Beatles. That alone makes it worthy for me.
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.Read more ›

Probably their most misunderstood release. Given the situation at the time - after all, this was the real break-up album (after the break-up rehearsal(s) in the White Album), and... Read morePublished 17 months ago by PGB
