Many believe you shouldn't mess with history, but when the results comeout this good that doesn't matter one bit.
For me, Let It Be has always seemed like a weak link in The Beatles'discography - a bunch of random songs cobbled together somehow into an LPwith no general direction. '...Naked' changes all that, and then some.
The album is all the basic tracks from the 1969 sessions, remixed, cleanedup and remastered using today's digital technology. You get what theyshould have always sounded like. The actual songs are a great credit tothe latter stages of their career. Anyone who thinks this is mainly PaulMcCartney's album should definitely reconsider, for along with hisclassics 'Get Back', 'Let It Be' and 'The Long And Winding Road' (allsounding better than ever with the new mixes), you get such gems as John's'Dig A Pony' and 'For You Blue', one of George's better Beatlesefforts.
However, what I love most is the inclusion of the original 'Across TheUniverse', without any of the horrible production, and 'Don't Let MeDown', which always should have been present here.
Everyone should own this. For me, this is the best Beatles CD released sofar, and that's including the great number ones album.
