They dropped “Dig It” and “Maggie May” and added “Don’t Let Me Down” completely changing the track list. In my mind I can see whoever did the casting for 1977’s The Deep going “now who can we get to play the incompetent and repellent town drunk no one ever wants to take on diving expeditions?

I have a hard time believing that all their talk of LiBN having a dead, lifeless mix is anything more than mere pretentious snobbery – maybe they have nicer sound systems and better ears than me, so I guess I could be wrong, but I actually think the album sounds pretty great, I don’t care what they say. Anthony DeCurtis of Rolling Stone noted that "[while] the sonic improvements to the album as a whole are undeniable . Lennon had defended Spector's work, saying, "He was given the shittiest load of badly recorded shit – and with a lousy feeling to it – ever.The Anthology 3 version is an improvement without the Spector touches, but I feel Paul’s vocal is strained on that take. So hopefully at some point in your life you’ve heard “The Ecstasy of Gold” from Ennio Morricone’s unsurpassed soundtrack to The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, which is without question the greatest piece of movie soundtrack music ever composed. The word “sterile” is one Ive often used to describe it and it completely takes away from the live atmosphere…certainly far more than the original album ever did. And then there is the travesty of the “Fly on the Wall” bonus disc, which could have fit neatly onto the first disc and didn’t need to be a bonus disc in the first place.

I've never liked the sound of LIB - to me it 'sounded and felt' more amateurish' than it was 'raw' imo. Tracks: 1-two Of Us 2-dig A Pony 3-across The Universe 4-i Me Mine 5-dig It 6-let It Be 7-maggie Mae 8-i Ve Got A Feeling 9-one After 909 10-the Long And Winding Road 11-for You.

See, on LiBN, the producers adopted Spector’s change that made the song longer, repeating the second verse again, whereas on Anthology 3 the song was left at its original length. I am talking mostly about the songs where Spector hadn’t futzed around with the arrangements much in the first place – “Two of Us”, “One After 909”, “For You Blue”, three songs I really love that are a lot of fun that have shiny new mixes on this release. One After 909" – a remix of the take from the rooftop concert; impromptu rendition of " Danny Boy" removed. So “I Me Mine” is kind of a disappointment – and completely superfluous, we’d already got a de-Spectorized version on Anthology 3, where it was actually more de-Spectorized than it was on LiBN.

The second pressing from 2010 has pronounced differences: polygraphy darker, less contrast, paper thinner, gatefold sleeve has a smaller size. Naked is an alternative mix of the Beatles' 1970 album Let It Be, released on 17 November 2003 by Apple Records. They also changed the mix so that more instruments were heard in that last repeated verse, to try and make it a little more interesting. Suggested alternate title: Get Back: The Let It Be Sessions, with the (originally intended) "updated" Please Please Me cover -eventually used on the "1967-1970" compilation (The Blue Album), which was Lennon's idea.Paul let’s out a glorious, exhilarating whoop after the instrumental breakdown as the band comes back in, and I do miss that on the LIBN take(s). And I know a lot of people find it irredeemably mawkish, but I’ve always loved the song – just not with a lame piffle of an organ solo smack dab in the middle.
