Definately agree here. The whole arrangement of let it be the original was against the whole way of recording the beatles did. Spectors cruel mistake on TLAWR, the frustrating dig it, and the unfinished maggie mae. Further it was too much like an anthology album, too much talk before "get back" and "dig a pony". Everything was very bad. Paul did the only right to release let it be naked to show people how the real Let it be album should have looked like.Paperback Writer wrote:WoW

I am so glad we have this album, my only minor complaint is leaving off the couple dittys and John's asides, comments.
I like the Wings arrangement but the definitive version in my opinion is on let it be naked or on GMRTBS.BruceMirken wrote: Spector was right that it needed something, but the something he added was just screamingly wrong. For me, the definitive version remains the Wings Over America arrangement.

However, I was most perturbed and disturbed when I learned that the songs have been messed with. This was apparently in order to neccessitate a perfect performance. So, "unwanted" noises have been edited out and different performances have been combined on one track. This is sacrelage. Just leave it. As JL said: "We were just a band who made it very big...you have all your old albums to listen to..." (slightly paraphrased). Yes, we do have all the old albums and they're great. Fiddling with them and bringing out supposedly "new" stuff is messing around with history and it's revisionism and I hate it. I feel even more strongly about the "new" Circe de Soleil Love album too.
