3.0 out of 5 stars Who mixed this thing?, 14 Nov 2003
This review is from: Let It Be... Naked (Audio CD)
I just listened to the whole "Naked" album on the radio. Things were going well until "Let It Be"...I'm ready to hear George's guitar break. I'm thinking which one will they use? The album one or the superior single version...But wait..I'm straining to hear any guitar at all!What the heck happened? Was the lead guitar on the same track as the "ooohhs" they left out? What a shame. The rest of the album sounds pretty much the same as the old one. I did like the cleaner version of "Across the Universe"...but I always liked the strings on "Long and Winding Road." I guess I'll just save up for the Concert for George DVD and CD...and wait for "Let it Be" on DVD as well.

The lead guitar, such as it is, on the 'naked' 'Let It Be' is from the actual live take. Both the single and the album track have overdubbed guitar solos, done in March 1969 (if memory serves - hope I'm correct) and January 1970 respectively. On the LP version Harrison's overdub plays through the last couple choruses. The lead guitar for the single does not. As a result, it is possible to hear 'leakage' of Harrison's original live guitar at that point. It matches the lead playing on '...Naked'.
The un-dubbed version of the album take of 'The Long And Winding Road' is on 'Anthology 3'. 'Let It Be... Naked' uses the film soundtrack take from a different day, with the organ solo, instead of Paul's spoken, "Many times I've been alone..." Phil Spector deleted Paul's mawkish speech, when he added the strings.
I suspect it's going to be a long wait for an official release of the 'Let It Be' film.
