About this album

Let It Be was officially The Beatles’ last album. Although most of the songs were initially recorded in January 1969 –before the recording of Abbey Road in September 1969– only Get Back and Don’t Let Me Down were released on single later that April ‘69, and the rest of the recordings left unpublished due to The Beatles’ busy schedule and personal difficulties in the band-/production-team.

When The Beatles finally decided they would split up, the unreleased material was prepared for release with producer Phil Spector. He most prominently added the orchestral arrangement on The Long and Winding Road. Furthermore the legendary rooftop-recordings of Dig a Pony and Get Back, and the last ever Beatles studio recording –I Me Mine– were added to complete the set of tracks that would be released as The Last Beatles Album: Let It Be …
In 2003 a not-produced-by-Phil-Spector reissue of Let It Be was published as Let It Be… Naked under supervision of Paul McCartney featuring various alternate takes, and a more modest sound production.

    When will they finally release the originally intended Get Back album? It should take the same place in the band's discography as Smile Sessions did in The Beach Boys'.

    Might not be their technically best album, but it's my favorite just for being the one I most enjoy as a whole.

    dejalo asi es el ultimo disco que salio de los beatles ,aunque se grabó antes que abbey road, el albun tiene una cierta melancolia,los duos de john y paul ,ya no tenian esa energia de temas anteriores.la pelicula ,que narra la grabacion de un disco ,es una disputa constante de discursiones entre los miembros,cada uno por su lado ,y la verdad ,que no hay un un espiritu de version de letit be naked vergrupo,es todo desolador ,aunque el concierto final de la terraza amortigua ,las tensiones de los componentes,,el trabajo que no se termino se lo encargaron a phill spector..un mago de la producion,y el trabajo final .fue polemico,porque algun miembro no quedo muy conforme con algun tema...pero resulta que paul que fue discordante de sus temas producido por spector,,,no logro en su version de naked lograr superar a la version de 1970

    @Lone_Wolf everything is a competition. And The Beatles win! ... ... ... ... Seriously though, I think a lot of people get a lot of enjoyment from comparison of art. And compilation of lists. It is just another way to appreciate your music collection.

    phrases like "best beatle album" comes out from those who discovered The Beatles very recently and most of them are young people. and to them.... everything is comparable and there has to be an absolute "best" of the best". Kids you should learn this before listening to music like the beatles or watching films like Apocalypse Now. You Can not compare art. it's not a competition.
