Lozarhythm Of The Day:
The Beatles - Let It Be (recorded 31 January 1969, Apple Studios, Savile Row, engineered by Glyn Johns)
There are probably more officially released versions of Paul McCartney's song Let It Be than any other Beatles record, as there are at least six, excluding the inevitable remastering that occurs with each re-release, and beginning with a short attempt at Abbey Road on 6 September 1968 during sessions for The Beatles (aka The White Album). Take 1, recorded at Apple Studios six days earlier than the released single, can be found on the Anthology 3 CD.
Let It Be first appeared in the shops in George Martin's production as a single in March 1970, as mixed by Glyn Johns on this day in 1970, 8th January, at Olympic Sound Studios in Barnes, and also intended for the never-released album Get Back.
It had been recorded live in the studio for the film Let It Be, with Billy Preston on keyboards, but for the record release overdubs had been added on 4th January 1970 at Abbey Road. These included backing vocals from Linda McCartney and a brass and string section as arranged by George Martin. George Harrison's guitar solo, played through rotating Leslie speakers, had been added on 30 April 1969, also at Abbey Road but with Chris Thomas producing.
When the take later appeared on the album Let It Be it had been radically remixed by new producer Phil Spector, leading to a later reduced revision supervised by Paul McCartney for the album Let It Be... Naked. A further new version is due to appear later in 2020 for the 50th Anniversary of the release of Let It Be, the film and album.
The version here is the original single release but remixed in 2015 for a new edition of the '1' CD compilation.
