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 The CD quality sounds better than the earlier albums like PLEASE PLEASE ME and this is an interesting historical document.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 Still good right to the end 11 Mar 2012
By Petey
Format:Audio CD
What can I say really! The Beatles despite having their problems with each other,arguments over money and management issues they still pulled it off and produced another brilliant album. Great tracks like " Long and winding road" "Ive got a feeling" and " One after909" demonstrate the passion and relentless energy these four guys who had been through so much together still had. A great album that I would recommend 100%.

5.0 out of 5 stars Under Rated - perhaps not any more 8 Jan 2011
Format:Audio CD
I have never ever understood why this album took the bashing it did do. It was brilliant in 1970, it is still brilliant in 2011. For those who (like Mr McCartney), don't like Spectre's tinkerings, get Let it Be Naked instead (brilliant too, by the way), but there's nowt wrong with this, nothing. The songs are great, the live ones are great because they are live, such thumping raw energy. 'Two of Us' has real fans hiding from their wives while they cry in a cupboard, imagining a young J and P roaming around Allerton or Speke in short kecks and with grey scuffed shirt collars and ruined shoes. It never happened of course but that is what the song evokes. George's guitar playing makes us think he must have made a short trip down below and come back rather demonic. His licks, in fact the overall sound show how much he and the technology had advanced in 6 short years, and again, much of it live on that blessed roof. I am 51 and from Liverpool; how I (at times!) wish I was 61 and had been in Saville Rowe, London in January 1969. Those lucky lucky people you see on the film, apart from the City squares of course. Ok, it isn't their best album, but this is purely going by the Beatles ' own exceptionally high standards, it still knocked the socks off its main rivals from the time, it still blows away the young pretenders from now. Five stars aint enough. Love it. Always will.

This has always been a great album. The new remaster makes it sound better than ever. The sound is much improved on the 1987 CD. Well worth buying!

This album is a mixed bag but actually contains some of their best work. If you remove Maggie May, Dig It, and Two Of Us then you've got yourself a great but short album. Read more
