Well I love all songs on help (except the cover songs) most of Rubber Soul, most of revolver, all of Sgt. Pepper, all of Magical Mystery Tour (except the last two songs, all of White Album, the four new songs on yellow submarine, all of Abbey Road, all of let it be, so I think yes

So why dont you like the first 4 albums and does it include the singles? There are some incredible songs on those albums.

Now, here's a question I'm not even sure I know the answer to: If George Martin had done the album, and it had come out (exactly as Let It Be was released) except without the animosity and with Paul's blessing, would it be viewed better? In other words, how much of the dislike of this album is inherently hatred of Phil Spector?

Do you mean if GM had done "Let It Be" or "...Naked"?

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!" -- Paul McCartney

Let It Be. Having it sound the exact same, but without the drama.

I'm so glad you posted these! Two of Us is one of my absolute favorites. And I don't know if this will sound dumb but I do have to wonder-why is The Long And Winding Road disliked so much? I'm not a music critic, but I think it sounds just fine. Or is there a better version out there somewhere?

TLAWR is generally viewed as being too overproduced, slow, and sickly what with the Wall of Sound Spector put on it along with the female choir (not the first female voices on a beatle record tho as is sometimes said to be); George Martins work is said to be more understated, fitting and appropriate to The Beatles music.

The naked version on Anthology 3 (the let it be version stripped off all trace of Spector) is preferred by some, others like the version on Let It Be Naked which is the version in the promo and i think in Anthology (and not the naked version which is on Anthology - it can get confusing), many actually view Spectors mix as being wonderful, and the rest hate the song in every incarnation available and run screaming.

There are also a ton of alternate versions from the January '69 Get Back sessions.

I know people who like the Spector version of TLAWR because thats what The Beatles put out on Let It Be and its what they are used to.

My mom won't let anybody talk when it comes on when we listen to Let It Be. She's obsessed! It's the only one she's used to, like you said.

Paul has said that he intended "The Long And Winding Road" to be a sort of Ray Charles-style ballad.  Obviously, schmaltzing it up to the extent that it was contradicted this notion.  a-hard-days-night-paul-7

 

I personally think Paul's vocal on the Let It Be (and Anthology 3) version sounds a bit sickly in its own right.
