the beatles to release "let it be" in it's original form
it has been announced that the beatles will release the let it be album as they originally intended.
the original idea of the album was for the beatles to get back to their roots, and perform, as well as record an album live, devoid of over-dubs, and studio overworkings that had become their norm with the sgt. peppers album.
the original title of the album was to be "get back", highlighted by what they had hoped would be a live, in front of an audience performance.
unfortunately, they couldn't agree on a venue, and the "live" performance ended up being a 20 minute set performed on the roof of their saville road apple headquarters before the police had shut them down.
i have been in possesion of several different bootleg albums over the years consisting of the original Glyn Johns produced material. (the let it be album was remixed in it's well known form by phil spector, and paul never approved of the final mix), (in fact, he cited this phil spector album as his main reason for disolving the beatles)
i'm thrilled to finally see this album come to market in the original form that the beatles had intended.
of course, the reason why it was never released in it's original form, is cause as a group, they felt it was beneath the quality of what the world had come to expect from the band
the album is to be called "let it be-naked"
