3 stars The Beatles "Let It Be" album is the original version of the legendary final album before it was reintroduced Naked.

It features some definitive Beatles classics such as the title track and 'Get Back' which are huge worldwide hits in their own rights.

There is more to offer of course and some of the lesser known tracks are absolute masterpieces such as 'Across The Universe' and 'The Long and Winding Road'.

Most Beatles fans know these tracks inside out but worldwide nothing could penetrate more than 'Get Back' that became an institution in itself. It still remains a Paul McCartney live favourite.

There are some other great tracks such as the driving 'One After 909' and 'Dig a Pony', however a lot of tracks on "Let It Be" are forgettable and uncharacteristically dull such as 'Two Of us' and 'For You Blue'.

I always looked at this as a farewell to The Beatles and it is a sad way to go out. But iconic images of the band playing on a building roof are indelible and inefaceable.

However the whole album was revamped and remastered as "Let It Be... Naked" and is a much better production. That is the version to get hold of if you want to hear really good versions of these tracks. 3 stars only.
