Within each CD's new packaging, booklets include detailed historical notes along with informative recording notes. For a limited period, each CD will also be embedded with a brief documentary film about the album. The newly produced mini-documentaries on the making of each album, directed by Bob Smeaton, are included as QuickTime files on each album. The documentaries contain archival footage, rare photographs and never-before-heard studio chat from The Beatles, offering a unique and very personal insight into the studio atmosphere.

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.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.Read more ›

The whole record is exceedingly skippy and to boot it happens at the worst moments musically, the only positive is the digital download so I can actually listen to it that wayPublished 17 days ago by Amazon Customer
I know it's not cool to say this, but this is probably my favorite Beatles album. If not favorite, it's second only to Abbey Road.Published 21 days ago by Yogi Mom

|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!

|Yet another call for the Let It Be DVD...||
I sure hope it is not up to just Paul and maybe Yoko to give the GO on a LIB dvd. I understand Paul may have bad memories of this event and Yoko may also seeing how bad John looked during these sessions. Paul you owe it to your fans, to the Beatles fans to get this released done so we can all... Read More

Mr. Lee...if you want to buy the remastered CD for the music...I reccomend it. If you want to buy it for the "documerntary", I can tell you as a diehard Beatle mental case for many , many a year, do not bother. As with all of the mini docs on the remasters, it is extremely minimal and... Read More

I was hoping we were going to get at least a portion of that book with Let It be ...Naked. This is one of the aspects which made that release a missed opportunity...unless the "powers" are holding off waiting to re-issue it with a deluxe box set of the (hopefully eventual) DVD release... Read More
