Let It Be... Naked

Editors’ Notes

Let It Be was intended to be a return to fundamentals—just four musicians playing live in the studio. But creative fractures eventually led The Beatles to scuttle the month-long sessions and Let It Be only saw the light of day after being reassembled by Phil Spector (famed for his elaborate “Wall of Sound” aesthetic). Let It Be… Naked is, at long last, a realisation of the band’s original vision. Overseen by Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr and remastered from the original tapes, these performances offer the warmth and intimacy of the sessions with no added flourishes.

Customer Reviews

Four Musicians?

I think it's a gross omission of iTunes to call this "just four musicians playing live in the studio" in the sales summary of this album. What about BILLY PRESTON? Where would "Get Back" be without his Rhodes, where would "Let it Be" be without his Hammond. "The Fifth Beatle" might be overstating his importance, but forgetting him altogether is worse.

Love The Beatles

It's Beatles! It's new! Its's old! It's a time when we all had to grow up. I still want a time machine. This is the next best thing.

Nothing wrong with nakedness.

Though I love all things Beatles... and the spartan production here is a cool reminder just how great the lads were... and though I feel for Paul how strongly he campaigned for this record to be heard free from post-production?

It's really who and what the Beatles were in the late-1960s and the beginning of the new decade just prior to their breaking up. They WERE all about the layers and layering. LOOK at them physically even! How much they changed, grew, evolved. The music NEEDED to be in agreement. And I'm sorry... orchestration, choruses and all the other flourishes... its how we all first discovered this record. It is exactly what we grew to love... and no materr how much you strip it down to the bare essentials. It is how we know it to be.

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '60s

So much has been said and written about the Beatles -- and their story is so mythic in its sweep -- that it's difficult to summarize their career without restating clichés that have already been digested by tens of millions of rock fans. To start with the obvious, they were the greatest and most influential act of the rock era, and introduced more innovations into popular music than any other rock band of the 20th century. Moreover, they were among the few artists of any discipline that were simultaneously...
