As great a producer as Phil Spector was, he was really only capable of producing ONE WAY. I like how he integrated all the studio chatter onto the album, but I wish he hadn't felt the need to add the orchestral overdubs to "Across The Universe ," "I Me Mine " and "The Long And Winding Road " (the "Let It Be " overdub was done by George Martin and the group themselves).

Thanks for a very productive first post, new guy. I like when first posts are thoughtful and relevant. It makes me feel like people are often lurking here for a while and then get the inspiration or nerve or whatnot to throw something interesting into the ring.
I'll defend Spector's 'Let It Be ' until my dying breath. I contend that he made the best possible version of what could have been made of the material. Given the choice between the released versions and the "raw" versions, I'll take the overdubs. I think he treated them with complete respect and polished them into classics.
There's a reason no radio station in the world has decided to switch over to the 'Naked' versions. They just aren't as good.
E is for 'Ergent'.
