Biography

"The story began in Harold Macmillan’s “never had it so good” ’50s Britain. It should be fiction: four teenagers with no more than eight O’Levels between them, running and biking and busing and busking all over Liverpool in search of new chords and old guitars and half-decent drum kit and any gig at all.

They were determined to amount to something ... Read more in Amazon's The Beatles Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Fab 4s Final one still sounds good 30 years later! 28 April 2000
Format:Audio CD
Reviewing the Beatles may seem like a waste of time as everything that could have been written about them has been - but the continuing interest with the anthologies, the tribute bands and the consistent sales still make them probably the most listened to band that will ever be. LET IT BE was first released in 1970, a patchwork album of material originally scheduled to be released as GET BACK a year earlier and recorded before the more famous ABBEY ROAD. Rejected by a disillusioned band and producer George Martin - it was put together by Phil Spector who under the circumstances does a pretty fair job. Although far from their finest, LET IT BE contains a few gems for fans and for the casual listener, after all any album that contains 3 (USA) number ones, Get Back, The Long And Winding Road and the title track can't be all bad. Add to that the simple "Two of Us", the irritatingly catchy "Dig A Pony", the basic "One After 909" - one of the first Lennon-McCartney compositions ever. The CD quality sounds better than the earlier albums like PLEASE PLEASE ME and this is an interesting historical document. Hard to believe that these guys could still make good music even when they were in turmoil. Rediscover this one now. Well worth a listen

5.0 out of 5 stars Captivating 1 Nov 2009
By Mr. J. A. Smith VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Listen to Let it Be on L.P if you can. I remember the first time I did, hunched up in the loft watching the apple slowly begin to revolve on the turntable.

I had heard lots of Beatles before. By some happy accident, my parent's had been big fans in the sixties and already had a small store of records which they kept in the loft, but rarely played. My experience of the band was from cassette tapes of Rubber Soul, Help! and Sgt. Pepper.

So, when I first placed Let it Be on to listen to, I was shocked. This sounded nothing like the Beatles. The production (though I was too young to know what this was) sounded really different, their voices sounded strange and as I stared at the beardy faces on the cover I almost felt that the Beatles had recorded the whole record in a loft themselves (Without, maybe, considering where the orchestra came from!).

I'm now 29, and it's been pretty hard to NOT know the real story of how Let it Be came to light, and why it sounds like such a hotchpotch. For a long time I have regarded it as a record that maybe I like only because it is by the Beatles, but not as one to take to my desert island.

And then I listened to the new remaster, on a night drive in my car. Where my head was at, I just don't know, but for some reason I was taken back all the way to being a 9 year old, listening to the record in the loft. I forgot all the history. Forgot all I knew about the squabbles, and forgot even that this was a Beatles record. I just listened to it.

You know what? I really, really liked it. Really! Two of Us sounded relaxed, ushering me in to the album in a covert way, much as it had done on my very first listen. Dig a Pony sounded more than just the filler it had been in my mind, it sounded raw, edgy.

5.0 out of 5 stars perfection 29 Dec 2011
Format:Audio CD
Having been brought up with the beatles and living just around the corner from Paul when they first started, it was only natural that I became a huge fan of theirs.
I always considered their music to be beyond compare, but I was mistaken as this remaster proves you can improve on perfection !!

5.0 out of 5 stars Poor only by Beatles' standards! 5 Oct 2007
Format:Audio CD
Although the fragmented "Let it be" as produced by Phil Spector was the last work that The Beatles released in April 1970, it was actually recorded in early 1969 before "Abbey Road". George Martin was not involved in production and the lads returned to their R n B roots as it were...
The accompanying film footage got them out of a tricky contractual obligation with United Artists. The result was painful to watch and documented the disintegration of The Beatles as we knew them, but then there was the music... The one saving grace of the whole project is the music. The underproduced rawness of the songs does not fit with Spector's clunky over saccharine orchestrations.This should be reasons to avoid this album except that it's brilliant!
It opens with the accoustic" Two of us" which is a belter of a number,"Dig A Pony" is rock/pop with quite a tricky guitar riff which showed their virtuousity by this stage. Track 3 is the beautiful "Across the Universe" and theme to the recent musical of the same name."I me mine" stands as one of Harrison's best tracks,"Dig it" is just a blues/organ riff which is tosh and a longer version appears on the accompanying film.The song"Let it be" needs no introduction and stands as one of The Beatles' finest songs."Maggie May" is a throwaway Liverpool folk song which is about 39 seconds too long(its entire length!)but then we come to "I've got a feeling" bluesy guitar and hammond organ as Paul McCartney(one of the finest rock 'n' roll voices) growls his way through this bluesy hunk of pure gold,this is probably my favourite Beatles' track of all!"One after 909" is a song that Lennon/McCartney wrote when they were about 18 and shows how their musical style had come full circle.
