Released in 1970 - "Let It Be" contains 13 tracks in all. Some of the songs are true Beatles' gems while there are others that are not worth more than one listen.
A fine final studio album, with the exception of a couple songs that seemed more like "fillers," and "silly," rather than up to their other credible musical, if not lyrical songs on the album.
In my opinion the fillers, were I Me Mine, Dig It and Maggie Mae, while the gems are more than just Let It Be, The Long and Winding Road or Get Back.
Classic, classic, classic!!!
this album was the first beatle record I ever heard; to my ears , it was cacophonous. I've since grown to appreciate it: I don't mind the spector production, I just wish he had not brought guns into the studio. I don't miss George martin's being there in the job of producer, either, don't ask me why I don't. it might as well have been phil as anyone at this point: the real producer was an engineer named glyn johns, from wales, who had produced the stones, previous. he later had a grudge against lennon for a quote john had about the album, and spector's value to it. that quote went something like this: ' he took the worst sack of terribly recorded rubbish ever, and turned it into something we needn't be ashamed of.' so, even though paul did not like what phil did to LONG AND WINDING ROAD, by adding strings to it, the so called 'naked let it be' made paul's precious version sound like lounge lizard music (muzak). on the positive side, billy preston joined the group to add his keyboards, part way through. he definitely spices up GET BACK and I DIG A PONY. Not to mention the title track. It's sad, though, if you see the film, they are definitely not liking each other, and they let it show..George has a fight on camera with Paul. Ah, Paul, he's bossing everyone around, and it looks to be quite the drag for the others. Yoko sits there, somber, reflecting the atmosphere of the others. John is definitely buoyed by her prescence. the pinnacle of the film, and the cd, is the performance on the roof of the studio's building, in downtown London, during the business community's lunch hour. in the film, you can here the music echoing and bouncing down the skyscraper canyons. the real-life characters the film YELLOW SUBMARINE was based on, glower and make pissy-faces. It must have felt good for them to say goodbye in such a way.
A few of the songs are among those that make it into the editions of selections of hits, a few others - probably due to unfamiliarity - only seem OK, and the rest are downright awful; sometimes they're just goofing off. The whole record is only 35 minutes long.
The non-spectorized version is easily found and is titled "Let It Be...Naked".
