5.0 out of 5 stars Not before time, either!, 28 Oct 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Let It Be... Naked (Audio CD)
I was a lad of 16 when I scraped some money together from my newpaper round to buy the original Let It Be (in fact, it was the limited boxed version with the Get Back book - now worth lots of dosh), and I could never understand why the film of Paul singing The Long and Winding Road shown on Top Of The Pops (the sequence recorded at in the Beatles' Saville Road basement) was bare, and without the Spector strings. It was the single version. Then it became clear that the fabs had given up on the project and had given over the job to Phil Spector, who went and lushed it up un-necessarily.
I'm really, really glad that this is now being released in this form - and doubly glad that Don't Let Me Down is being included. This is one of Lennon's finest songs, and the band were on great form that day. Let's not forget Billy Preston's splendid contributions, either - probably the reason why the four were on their best behaviour. From what I've heard of this already (and, let's be honest, what true lifelong fan hasn't heard these tracks in one shape or form even in bootleg mode) it's got to be worth the full five stars even before hearing this remixed and re-engineered album.
Perhaps we'll see the release of the film on DVD one day? It's years since I saw it in the cinema, and I haven't seen it on TV since the late 70s.
