Let It Be is my favourite Beatles album, and I was definitely planning on picking up the new release to see what the original "vision" of this albume was supposed to be like. But yeah, like The Irish One said, all those tracks have been floating around out there for quite a while. I'm not sure I'll bother picking it up.
We downloaded a couple of the songs "for evaluation", and I wasn't really impressed. Not to say I disliked it, but I think I prefer the "dressed" versions. They (the "naked" versions) sound like demos.
However, "Get Back" sounds a little more bluesy, since you can hear the guitar a little better. Kinda cool.
I sort of like the less produced qualities. I don't think Phil Spector did the music justice. I think he produced Imagine too. Maybe I'm just getting old, but for the most part I don't care for a lot of the over produced music. Some of it probably wouldn't be listenable unless the producer polished it up. Which begs the question, who is the real artist? The musicians or the producer?
Slightly OT, is anyone familiar with Simon and Garfunkle's original "Sounds of Silence" from their album Wednesday Morning, 4 AM? I like it better than the popular version with the added electric guitars.
