Anyone ever notice how different the Past Master's version vocal track sounds? This is the version that is the single correct? Funny on the radio I never notice, but at home comparing this to the album, man the vocal sounds a lot different. The whole track does. 

Tell me if these observation are correct so far? The single version has less overdubs, the organ is louder and the brass not so loud? The older solo with the leslie speaker is used? Did Martin produce it at all, or just Glyn Jones? The Past Masters version seems a bit more live or lively.

I am a huge fan of the guitar solo on the album version… but aside from that not sure which version I like better.

There are lots of variations in the versions of Let it Be, the easiest way to distinguish most of them is by the guitar solo's. 

"And in the End the Love you take is equal to the Love you make"
"When I was a robber *Piano Chord* in Boston Place"
"Let's hope this turns out pretty darn good huh"
"Pete may be the best, but Ringo is the star"
Paul:"Don't be nervous John"
John:"I 'm not"

I know that. I just was really just appreciating the differences over all, for the sake of seeing what I like or don't. And in this case I was particularly strongly noticing how different the vocals sounded. I can tell them apart easy enough. I just like analyzing how different they are.

Contrary to exarctly, I far prefer the guitar solo on the single.

Of course, the original plan from what I recall is that both solos were supposed to appear simultaneously. The album version was to be the background solo behind the "single" solo.

Someone should easily be able to mash that up.

Well, to each his own… but FWIW (not that it proves anything, as a majority could be wrong) but if you read the comments in the Let It Be song section of this page, I get a good amount of support of people who say the album solo is better. One comment mentions that the solo is part of what emotionally attaches them to that version of the song. And another person actually remixed the two together so that they could hear the solo from the album in the mix of the single (with a couple other changes too). And one poster thought it was too good to actually have been played by George (though they are rightfully disagreed with). I just think that album solo has a ton of grit (great fuzzy tone) and great construction of ideas. Not to mention George probably likes it better because he did decide to redo it after all, and probably was able to take a more concentrated effort on it.
