4.0 out of 5 stars Their last and not their best., 10 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Let It Be (Audio CD)
If you are a Beatles fan then this is a must as they must be considered a part of our cultural history and looking back this must be the most historic album they made.... amazing that it was made at all. This is their 12th and last album although some would argue that 'Abbey Road' was their last as most of 'Let It Be' was recorded before. Strangely they moved away from George Martin as producer and used Glynn Johns (in 1969 - to be released as 'Get Back'). Not satisfied with this version (and let's be fair, they probably could not really agree with must at this stage of the band's history as they were going through the beginnings of a particularly acrimonious break up) it was shelved. It was resuscitated and bought back to life in 1970 by Phil Spector (and to my mind a very non-Beatles producer) as the soundtrack album to the eponymous film 'Let It Be'. He remixed the tracks (too heavily overlaid with strings for my liking) leaving out 4 songs from the 'Get Back' sessions (Lennon's 'Don't Let Me Down', the B side to the single 'Get Back, McCartney's beautiful 'Teddy Boy' which ended up on his 1st solo album 'McCartney', The Drifter's 'Save The Last Dance For Me' and an improvisation called 'The Rocker'). It's a bit treacly - 'The Long And Winding Road' for instance, but hey, this is a Beatles album and so has an inbuilt quality about it.
