New on iTunes — Let it Be — De-Spectorized
The Beatles have made no secret of being unhappy with Phil Spector's treatment of "Let it Be." It was 10 years ago that the "naked" version of the album was released to the delight of fans all over the world. Now, that "De-Spectorized" version is available on iTunes.
Rolling Stone reports that McCartney believed that the remixed version of the release more accurately reflected what the Beatles had intended to accomplish in the studio, with a more live and raw feel.
The new addition to iTunes comes with a few extras too. The ‘Let It Be…Naked’ LP version includes 11 songs and the original booklet and liner notes, in addition to over 20 minutes of studio banter that was recorded during the original sessions. There are also videos for purchase and free streaming for the versions of ‘Get Back’ and ‘Don’t Let Me Down’ that appear on ‘Let It Be…Naked.’
