Let It Be songs Product Information
Let It Be album for sale by Beatles was released on the Capitol/EMI label. The only Beatles album to occasion negative, even hostile reviews, there are few other rock records as controversial as Let It Be. First off, several facts need to be explained: although released in May 1970, this was not their final album, but largely recorded in early 1969, way before Abbey Road. Phil Spector was enlisted in early 1970 to do some post-production work, but did not work with the band as a unit, as George Martin and Glyn Johns had on the sessions themselves; Spector's work was limited to mixing and some overdubs. ...See Full Description

||*sigh* What happened to our favorite Fab Four? "Let It Be".|
What this album shows, more than anything, is just how out of it these guys were as a group. And, they tell the entire world that this is it. There won't be anything else from these guys as the Beatles. It is a sad thought, but this album does show why they decided to go their separate ways. They were simply tired. They wanted to go home, to simply "let it be", like the title track, the single version of which is superior in my opinion to the CD version on this album. Still, I remember the reviewer from the All Music guide saying that even a terrible album by the Beatles adds up to a great album by anybody else's standards. This is true of "Let It Be". At least, there is some consolation that they didn't just up and disappear from the limelight. They gradually faded, leaving their opus "Abbey Road" behind as a testament to what they were, and then releasing this album as a farewell. One of the saddest moments in all of rock and roll, but adequately captured on this CD. Buy it, if you're a fan. We owe them that much, at least.

I was born in 1960, but I showed keen pop music interest from about the age of 4 - "go ahead and invade - I'm listening, I'm listening!"- By the time this "last" LP comes out, I'm as sad as anyone at the recent breakup of the Beatles - but I'm even sadder by all the negative reviews it got! Let's review this record with a current perspective... If any current pop band can write better songs than TWO OF US, ACROSS THE UNIVERSE, LET IT BE, & GET BACK, then I'd love to hear their efforts...but I'd likely need 4 of their albums bought, to do that... The next 'tier' of songs on this LP would be a debate, but the only 'weak' tracks would be the ones that any fan or curious observer would consider to be the albums' charmers - DIG IT, MAGGIE MAE, & ONE AFTER 909 (which I believe John and Paul wrote while they were even still illegal drinkers). These songs, and the preamble/apres to GET BACK, as well as John's nasal needs before I DIG A PONY, are a rare glance into the lads' mood and general disposition, that we hadn't seen much of since the incomparable film A HARD DAYS' NIGHT. I'll bet too, that any 'sound byte' fans out there, would rate this a 5+ star effort, from that perspective... while for us pop music & Beatle fans, this LP is simply, a classic.
