Discussions on how to reduce the White Album to one disc (i.e. how to "essentialze" it) are popular, but I'm not sure whether we've had suggestions on how to put the "essential" version of Let It Be together out of all the material that's been released (original album, singles, Naked, Anthology…). How about your "perfect" Let It Be then? Maybe it's not even called that but Get Back? Here's mine:

  1. Two of Us (Let It Be)
  2. Dig A Pony (Let It Be)
  3. I Me Mine (Naked)
  4. Teddy Boy (Anthology 3)
  5. One After 909 (Let It Be)
  6. Across The Universe (Anthology 2)
  7. The Long And Winding Road (Naked)
  8. I've Got a Feeling (Let It Be)
  9. For You Blue (Naked)
  10. Don't Let Me Down (single)
  11. Mailman, Bring Me No More Blues (Anthology 3)
  12. All Things Must Pass (Anthology 3)
  13. Let It Be (single)
  14. Get Back (single or Let It Be – not sure…)

What about Teddy Boy off the "McCartney" album, does it count?

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

Hmmmm… It's not really a Beatles recording, is it? :-)

But if you think it would be eligible, why not?

It probably could, but that's not The Beatles (though I guess there are a couple Beatles songs that are all Paul).

Two of Us (Let It Be)

Dig A Pony (Let It Be)

Across The Universe (Unreleased but bootlegged Glyn Johns Mix)

I Me Mine (Let It Be)

Dig It (Let It Be)

Let It Be (Let It Be)

Maggie Mae (Let It Be)

I've Got a Feeling (Let It Be)

One After 909 (Naked + 'Danny Boy' from LIB)

The Long And Winding Road (Anthology 3)

For You Blue (Let It Be)

Don't Let Me Down (single)

Get Back (Let It Be)

 

As obvious from the list i find that Spectors Let It Be works well overall but needs a few tweaks.

The lengths of the two jams work (any longer and they would be off), and thats the issue i have with Teddy Boy, well 2 issues - the length and also its a blatant work in progress.

The jams on Anthology 3 are crap pointless edits so if here or on a bonus album i'd go put them on complete.

If you havent heard the Glyn Johns mix of ATU check it out, its awesome, best version ive heard.

Weeeell, the Anthology jams may be crap & pointless, but surely not as much as "Dig It" and "Maggie Mae"?

What, flame you for starting another Let It Be thread when there are already at least 2 or 3 that would've covered the topic nicely? :)

I personally would like to see an expanded, messy "Let It Be" with equal time for the rooftop concert, the "acoustic concert" from the next day, the best of whatever covers they did during the month, and such extra crap as the COMPLETE "Dig It", "Get Off", the feedback/Yoko jam and other uncommercial stuff.

Probably not, no, unless I compile my own from bootlegs! But hey, you asked for "perfect", and how often does perfection exist in the real world?

For Let it Be to be "perfect", it would have to be re-recorded. Except for: Let it Be (album version – by far the best), Don't Let Me Down (obviously should have been included), Get Back, I've Got A Feeling and I Me Mine (it actually WAS re-recorded. That's why it's a good version.)

Sont des mots qui vont très bien ensemble.
