At last revealed - The Beatles album that has taken more than 30 years to finish, Let It BeNaked, just the bare sound of the band inside The Beatles.

When The Beatles first set out to make the album in 1969, they intended to record an album that would be a return to live performance of just the bare necessities of the band, no studio effects or overdubbing of voices or instruments would be allowed. However, caught in the turmoil of the break-up of the band, the album was re-produced by Phil Spector and never released as The Beatles had originally meant it to sound. Until now.

Let It BeNaked is the no frills, back-to-basics album that The Beatles first set out to make back in 1969 - but which was never released as they intended, the band back to the bone.

Now, through the smart digital technology of Abbey Road studios, the never-heard band's take of the original sessions will be finally released worldwide by EMI Records in November.

Naked is Let It Be brought right up to now for the '1 Generation', de-mixed and re-mixed, un-dubbed of orchestration, choirs and effects and stripped-back to the raw to reveal The Beatles simply as what they were very best at being just a great band.

"If we'd have had today's technology back then, it would sound like this because this is the noise we made in the studio", said Paul McCartney "It's all exactly as it was in the room. You're right there now".

"When I first heard it, it was really uplifting. It took you back again to the times when we were this band, the Beatle band", said Ringo Starr.

Let It BeNaked will be issued together with a bonus fly-on-the-wall disc that features extracts from tapes of The Beatles at the time of first making the Let It Be album and movie in the Sixties.



...Some of these changes are for the better. The sonic clarity is welcome and the revamped album concludes, as the original should have, with the title track, one of the most moving songs McCartney ever wrote..." - Rating: B+ Entertainment Weekly (11/21/03, pp.81-2)

5 stars out of 5 - "[T]he cleaning up, editing and re-sequencing has brought out a warmth and depth of colour we've not heard before... Mojo (12/03, p.134)

3 stars out of 5 - "...It's nice to have the sparer rendition of 'Across the Universe' that Lennon recorded, and the sonic improvements to the album as a whole are undeniable... Rolling Stone (12/11/03, p.207)

Why is it trying to charge me 50p for 'Insurance for Online Order'?

That was why I decided to get a credit card!

Scratch that, found the box to click to get rid of it.

Just another attempt by the Beatles Circus and hangers-on
to extort even more cash from their fans

How is that, by paying for their music? I know its sort of a re-mix album but its the cheepest online I can find at the moment.

Somehow I dont think money was McCartney's motivation to release this album what with him having an estimated bank balance of £725m.

Its more to do with the fact that the Let It Be album when originally released was not what the Beatles had envisaged when recording. However due to the acrimonious nature in which the album was recorded it appeared the album would not be released as the Beatles could not get it to sound how they wanted and so Alien Klien (famous music manager) took the tapes and gave them to Phil Spector to work on. Klien however did not obtain the consent of all the Beatles when doing this and McCartney was said to be very unhappy with the final product that Spector produced as it did not fit into what he had envisaged, espically with his songs The Long and Winding Road & Let It Be (he complained that they were "over produced")

As such McCartney wanted to set the record straight and finally did so with the release of the Let It Be Naked album.
