Biography

"The story began in Harold Macmillan’s “never had it so good” ’50s Britain. It should be fiction: four teenagers with no more than eight O’Levels between them, running and biking and busing and busking all over Liverpool in search of new chords and old guitars and half-decent drum kit and any gig at all.
They were determined to amount to something – ... Read more in Amazon's The Beatles Store

Product Description

The Beatles Let It Be - Sealed Longbox US CD album

Amazon.com

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Not perfect, but fans still like it August 24, 2004
Format:Audio CD
For those who don't know the story, the tension and frustration experienced by The Beatles during the "White Album" sessions reached new heights during the GET BACK sessions. In an attempt to bring spirit to the band, Paul was pushing to have The Beatles play live again. Perhaps his thinking was that playing together (as they used to do) would reunite them (as they used to be). Instead, there was much talk of breaking up. It was decided that the group should at least rehearse together while being filmed, but George Harrison actually walked out and quit the group for a few days. Apparently what John said regarding The Beatles at this time was indeed a group reality: "It had become a job."

Excluding the filming that took place at Twickenham Studios (brought to a close by tension within the band and George's walkout), the GET BACK sessions began on January 22, 1969, and ended just nine days later, all of it taking place at the band's Apple headquarters rather than Abbey Road studios. Although The Beatles behaved a little better when keyboardist Billy Preston was brought in, the sessions did not go well, being mostly jamming--meandering from song to song. As George Martin appropriately pointed out, "they were rudderless at this time." Martin was not on hand for much of this, and even when he was present, it is unclear how involved he was. Engineer Glyn Johns was asked to compile the album--not George Martin. Though Johns complied, the ill-fated GET BACK was never given the group's stamp of approval and was left unreleased for over a year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Let it Be....Naked and Let it Be Soundtrack Comparison November 15, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Finally, after more than 33 years, the non orchestral arrangement of Let it Be has been released! On Nov 14, I purchased highly advertised Let it Be...Naked 2-CD set here in Japan. There was a long line to get the new set, so I knew it must be good. I must say, I was quite impressed with the sound quality, and the removal of Phil Spector's various orchestral and choir arrangements.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars PASSING THE AUDITION March 24, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This may not be The Beatles greatest recording moment,but it holds up very well despite all the bashing its gotten over the years.Started January 1969 as Get Back,the original idea was to record an album aux natural with as little of the production values that has graced their latter albums(Sgt Pepper,MMT,the white album).Unfortunatly the tedious task of sifting through the many hours of tape,along with the recording of Abbey Road,left this project on the shelf.Nearly a year later,it was unshelved and attempted to be mixed by Glyns Johns,which proved unsucessful.Enter Phil Spector who went against the "live in the studio" concept and made a presentable product.Retitled Let It Be,it proved to be a fitting title as The Beatles disbanded a month before its release date.As for the album itself,Spector's touches gaves these recording a much needed polish.In light of the outtakes which surfaced on Anthology 3,the aux natural concept would not go easy on record buyers ears.A great song even in its raw form,The Long And Winding Road,although a bit overproduced,is very stirring.while Across The Universe in Spectors hands,is transformed into the albums highlight.The title track works better in its single mix,due to the Spector overdub seem to stiffle the track.George Harrison's two compositions,I Me Mine and For You Blue,are strong indications of his later work on Abbey Road and his own All Things Must Pass.Dig A Pony,I've Got a Feeling and One After 909,although rough rockers,shows the group in fine form.Two Of Us shows for one last time,the classic chemestry between Lennon And McCartney.The rooftop performance of Get Back ends the album with Lennon stating "I hope we passed the audition".Although many criticized this album for what its not(especially coming after Abbey Road)it shows the group as they are at the time,fragmenting all the while still making great music.

Beatles Albums: Which are the best ones????
Just buy all of them and save yourself the agony of choosing. There isn't a bad Beatles album, and the best way to listen to them is chronologically so you can hear the evolution of their style and maturity. Oh, just do it!
