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.

I'm listening to Breakfast with the Beatles, and in the first 15 minutes, they played a jokey country-sounding version that Chris Carter says Paul did of "Let It Be" during soundcheck in 1993. His bandmembers in the back are yelling "Oi!" and it's one of the funniest things I've ever heard in my life.

Anyone else heard of it?

(thanks for the moving the post, mods)

Beware of sadness. It can hit you. It can hurt you. Make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for. - George

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.

I think the song's been forever ruined for me. Now I'll keep thinking "oi!" and "hands off my granny" when the original comes on - but slower. :-D

Think For Yourself has probably been ruined for me due to certain outtakes including a very rude version of Do You Want To Know A Secret
