When I bought the remastered box set, I was curious to see how they would be in order. When I saw Let it Be as the last, I said, "not in my house".


 

Me too, since I learned in the Anthology that Abbey Road was their last work.

 

I like Let it Be a lot. But there was something I didn't like that I couldn't explain, until I read about Phil Spector and Macca's problems. Then, I decided that I just hate the wall of sound. And my hate goes so far, that I replaced in my playlist The Long and Boring Song, Across The Universe and I, Me, Mine with Naked's version. I prefer my George, Paul and John without Ray Conniff-ish chorus thank you very much….

Believe it or not, with all my Macca hate (I love him, just hate some of his songs), I love The Long And Winding Road.

I was listening to Let It Be... Naked earlier this evening and thought the very simple piano version was rather lovely. I can't stand the Let It Be one though.

I think most of Let It Be...Naked is better than the Spectorized version, especially The Long And Winding Road and certainly Across The Universe.

Off topic, but do the ellipsis in Let It Be... Naked seem awkward to anyone else? Let It Be: Naked or Let It Be - Naked would flow better in my opinion.

I called like that for fun :)

 

But that song means so much in my life that I don't listen to it that often, because it brings tons of memories. It's like Something. When they start, I just skip them. Actually I wrote a short story called The Long And Winding Road but it's lost...  a-hard-days-night-george-4

Or even Get Back, which I maintain would have been a great idea to call the album. Let It Be... Naked is a crap title.

Even better. I think I'll rename those files to Get Back.

Edit:

It's not a lie if you believe it.

Like it. I presume you're familiar with this:

Quick question for those who put Abbey Road after Let It Be: do you also put Yellow Submarine before the White Album?

OK, so what's the difference there? It was recorded before the White Album, just as most of LIB was recorded before Abbey Road.

I actually put it before White because the 4 new songs are left-overs from the Pepper/MMT era before the trip to India.

 

On a side note, it's funny how the soundtrack was released 6 months after the film was released.  I guess that leads me to a question/observation...  It is a possibility that since the band was taking so long in the recording studio, Yellow Submarine was only released because of contractual obligations to fill the gap between White and the next album?

I knew of it, but didn't think of it. Why didn't Paul use this?

Re: YS before White, that's a good question. I thought the movie came out after White, but the movie actually came out before and the album after. There wouldn't be an ablum without the movie, so you could argue that it should be placed before. But that would be rewriting history.

If placing Abbey Road at the end makes you feel better, then God bless. I don't think you can move it using citing when it was recorded as your reason without rearranging everything else.

Well for me, it's Abbey Road. Why? Although, Let It Be was released last marking the breakup, remember, that, it was released AFTER the beatles break-up, they break up with McCartney anuncing his self-title debut album, on 11 April 1970, and the album was released On May 5th or 8th, 1970 almost a month. And also, the material was recorded on January 1969 BEFORE Abbey Road was recorded, with the title of Get Back, with some overdubs added on subsequent months but before Abbey Road and on January 3rd and 4th, 1970 where they did I Me Mine, but, there was only three beatles, and as on anthology that much of you that consider that was not a reunion, they we're like the ''threetles'', because John was absent, gone of the band.

Abbey Road started, AFTER Get Back, on June-July 1969, even when they we're more distant, still they worked some time from time the four altogether in the studio, and then the last songs to finish on August 1969 with the four last time together, 20 August 1969, with I Want You (She's So Heavy) and The End. And of course the last photo session with footage on 22 August 1969 seven years after Ringo played with them for the first time on Cavern Club as official and permanent drummer of The Beatles.

And also, as the original second side order, The End was going to be the last, but it didn't happen, and first pressing vinyls, hadn't Her Majesty in the list, so i always put it as originally was, between Mean Mr. Mustard and Polythene Pam.

For me, The Beatles intention was Abbey Road at the end, so i prefer original intentions, like Strawberry Fields, Penny Lane & Only A Northern Song on Pepper.

But Let It Be it's officially the LAST RELEASED album, but NOT the LAST RECORDED. a-hard-days-night-john-6

Let me take you down 'cause I'm going to...Strawberry Fields.

I like it, but I think that cover is quite… weird. I mean considering the amazing covers the Beatles always had.. that looks like.. I dunno. Like another CD.

Mhhhh after. Actually I put Abbey Road after Let it Be because it's weird to listen The End to start with another album.. it's like "Well, is it the end or what??"

Of course we have Our Majesty but it's only one song…

I say it's Let It Be. That's why I've never heard "Get Back"... 'cause it's the last song on the last album (though the track probably wasn't recorded last :P) and I don't want the Beatlemania to end a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

I'm in love, but I'm lazy.

just "get back"... when i was 8, my dad told me that "let it be" was their last album ever, and i listened to "two of us" through "For You Blue" with him. when "get back" came on, he told me that that was the last song on the album; i cried, plugged my ears, and ran away.

i still do it now, without the crying, of course. i've become so familiar with the first three seconds now, it's not even funny. a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

I'm in love, but I'm lazy.
