Although I'm in agreement with meanmistermustard on this, I have to admit, that's the best "Beatles" version of 'All Things Must Pass ' that I've heard...  There's just too many moral issues with this being the new direction for Apple to take...  The Beatles (minus John, of course) have all ready ruffled a few feathers with the 'Free As A Bird ' & 'Real Love ' records, where they added tracks to a demo that was nearly two decades old at the time, and those records weren't even all that successful...  It appears that there's enough people around all ready butchering their tracks to satisfy anyone's curiosity of "what could've been", Apple doesn't need to get in on it too...  The 'Love' album wasn't really designed to dominate the charts, or introduce another generation to The Beatles' music...  It was an accompanying disc to the stage production and that's about it, and the results are very underwhelming, to say the least...


Thanks... it's assembled from Twickenham rehearsals , nothing else added, just the four Beatles playing...

The more I think of it...  Apple should lock up the vaults forever and throw away the key...  The state of music today is in a shambles, and has been for quite some time...  A big part of that is that "musicians" nowadays tend to set up studios in their bedrooms before they even know how to play an instrument, and many of them don't ever pick one up...  Technology has taken over to the point where there's really not much substance anymore...  I'm thinking that maybe Apple comes off a little smarter by focusing on preserving The Beatles' legacy all of these years...  You don't want today's generation taking their music and running with it...  This would be a disaster of epic proportions...:-)     

I totally agree with you. Apple releasing 'new' Beatles material is fine for me as long as there are at least half the band still alive , and should not be allowed anymore at all once there's no Beatle around us. Otherwise it would be the same situation as Priscilla releasing duets and orchestral albums of Elvis... just imagine what could happen to the Beatles' legacy ... Paul, Ringo,  Olivia and Yoko should now be working legally on that , before it's too late.

We will know. Apple messed around with the live performances in the 'Eight Days A Week

You're right. Gone are the good old days when we wouldn't know. Too much información nowadays. People back then never knew the final Ringo fills on Thank You Girl were an edit piece, for instance. And were oblivious to the fact that the Beach Boys played almost no instruments on their masterpiece Pet Sounds (in fact they barely played one from 1964 to mid 1967). It's a pity we've lost our 'innocence'...

'Let It Be Naked' has probably got more edits and patch-ups than Spector ever did for 'Let It Be '. The idea that it's the Beatles as nature intended without all the shine and gloss is total Apple garbage.

You need the bootlegs or the tracks on Anthology 3 to hear how the sessions really were.

I have no idea how Let It Be ...Naked was released the way it was. I didn't mind that they changed up the album a little bit but the Fly on the Wall disc was such a wasted opportunity. 

And in the end the lunch you take is equal to the lunch you bake.
