Let It Be Naked

The Beatles’ album Let It Be – Naked was released this week. As much as I am not a fan of the over-orchestration of the 30 year old Phil Spector-produced ‘original’, it’s quite evident, after listening to ‘Naked’ that some form of production was required to make these songs come ‘alive’. As the album title implies, the songs presented on ‘Naked’ are in their most basic form, and as such, are pretty flat and unexciting.

Somewhere between the over-produced Spector version and the un-produced Naked version, lies a better version of this album.
