Music today hasn’t been The BeatlesLet It Be (1970), the album they actually released, despite Paul McCartney not liking Phil Spector’s overdubs. This from Wikipedia:

Paul McCartney, long unhappy with the original Phil Spector produced Let It Be LP, initiated a remix of the album, titled Let It Be…Naked which was released in 2003. The album was presented as an alternative attempt to capture the original artistic vision of the project, to “get back” to the rock and roll sound of the band’s early years. The album features alternate takes, edits, and mixes of the songs, mainly removing elements added by Spector. The album omits the group chatter, “Maggie Mae” and “Dig It”, and adds a live rooftop performance of “Don’t Let Me Down”, a song omitted from the original album and issued as the B side of the “Get Back” single in 1969.

I listened and posted Let It Be…Naked as the Album Of The Daze recently. To most, it seemed to be missing what had become essential elements, A Sense Of Loss, but isn’t it just what we got used to? We gravitate to what we are familiar with, my idea with The Archive is to discover “new worlds, new civilisations, to boldly go where Nosound has gone before”.
