Thursday 12am ET: Feature LP: Beatles – Let It Be . . Naked (2003)

Let It Be… Naked is an alternative mix of the Beatles’ 1970 album Let It Be, released in 2003. The project was initiated by Paul McCartney, who felt that the original album’s producer, Phil Spector, did not capture the group’s stripped-down, back-to-their-roots intentions for the album. Naked consists largely of newly mixed versions of the Let It Be tracks while omitting most of Spector’s embellishments and the incidental studio chatter featured between many of the songs on the original album. Naked also omits two tracks from the 1970 release – “Dig It” and “Maggie Mae” – replacing them with “Don’t Let Me Down”, which was the non-album B-side of the “Get Back” single.
