|U.K. Album Chart Detail :||
|Detail :||Three years after "1" a new Beatles album just in time for the 2003 Christmas market.
As you all know, this is the de-Spectorised version of Let it Be that the world has been waiting for.
Although those of you who have heard any Let It Be bootlegs, or indeed have seen the movie have probably heard the original tracks in a stripped down format.
So, is it just those original takes as heard on a million bootlegs without the Spector overdubs ? .... No !
Also included in the package is an extra disc of "Fly On The Wall" outtakes from the January 1969 sessions.
For ease of play, the C.D. would be the choice ... BUT ... any collector out there must obtain the vinyl version.
On it's first week of release, "Let It Be... Naked" entered the U.K. album chart at no. 7.
I also have a rare single-track promo C.D. for the album which can be seen above. The catalogue number is LIB 001.
|Get Back||Lennon-McCartney||Originally ending the 1970 album, now starts it in rocking good style.
The mix is very clear, but without the pause and fade out heard before.
|Dig A Pony||Lennon-McCartney||The only track in the same place on the album as the original release - track 2.
For this "Naked" issue it loses the false start and the chat at the end.
|For You Blue||Harrison||A much brighter mix than the original with the drums further forward, and
the choppy rhythm guitar which was very prominent, moved way back.
Also the ad-libs are much clearer in the mix.
|The Long And Winding Road||Lennon-McCartney||The first BIG change, it isn't just the original version without the Spector overdubs,
this is NOT the same take.
The 1970 release used Take 18, this is Take 19 which was that used in the film.
(G.B.no. 31.22 - take 19)
|Two Of Us||Lennon-McCartney||Very similar to the original, but a clearer mix.
|I've Got A Feeling||Lennon-McCartney||Of all the tracks, this is the most stunning change from the original.
A different take (or combination of takes), with a fuller mix .... this is brilliant.
|One After 909||Lennon-McCartney||Much clearer mix. For example John's "Yes I Did" reply can be heard very clearly now.
|Don't Let Me Down||Lennon-McCartney||Newly included on the "Naked" album.
I believe this is a combination of two rooftop versions. The gobbledegook lyrics version is the bulk of the piece, with the "offending line" edited in from the second rooftop version.
(G.B.no. 30.3 with an edit from 30.12)
|I Me Mine||Harrison||This is not the extended version edited by Spector, it has a new edit to extend it.
But it still is very similar to the original, again a much clearer mix.
|Across The Universe||Lennon-McCartney||None of the 1st April 1970 overdubs.
The ending is a beautiful production with John's voice fading into nothingness.
