Super Deluxe Half-Speed Mastered 180g 4LP & 45rpm 12" Vinyl EP Box Set!
With 27 Unreleased Session Recordings!
1969 Unreleased 14-Track Get Back LP Mix by Glyn Johns!
Includes 100-Page Hardback Book!

Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 342/500!

The Let It Be album has been newly mixed by producer Giles Martin and engineer Sam Okell. All the new Let It Be releases feature the new stereo mix of the album as guided by the original "reproduced for disc" version by Phil Spector and sourced directly from the original session and rooftop performance eight-track tapes.

The Super Deluxe Edition includes 27 unreleased session recordings, a 4-track Let It Be EP, the 1969 unreleased 14-track "Get Back" stereo LP mix by Glyn Johns, and a 100-page hardback book with an intro by Paul McCartney, track-by-track recording information, and many unseen photos, notes, and more. A slipcase box set houses the 4 LPs, 12" EP, and hardbound book.

The Super Deluxe beautiful book features Paul McCartney's foreword; an introduction by Giles Martin; a remembrance by Glyn Johns; insightful chapters and detailed track notes by Beatles historian, author, and radio producer Kevin Howlett; and an essay by journalist and author John Harris exploring the sessions' myths vs. their reality. The book is illustrated, scrapbook style, with rare and previously unpublished photos by Ethan A. Russell and Linda McCartney, as well as never before published images of handwritten lyrics, session notes, sketches, Beatles correspondence, tape boxes, film frames, and more.

While the goal was an album of recorded live tracks with no overdubs, that didn't happen and what did happen is a long, complicated story sorted out with great efficiency in the outstanding annotation included in both of the recently released digital and vinyl disc Let It Be sets... Overall I think this is among the most successful stereo mixes of the entire series, in part because there was less (if any) 'moving around' and/or 'fixing' to do. The recording was originally to 8 tracks and there was minimal overdubbing, which was the original intent. As with the previous mixes, the timbral balance is midrange-rich, bottom end strong and top end 'reticent' compared to original pressings (I like more 'snap' to snares and 'sizzle' to cymbals as can be found on the original U.K. pressing) but the minor 'in the pocket' balance updates produce insightful and enjoyable improvements on just about every tune... If this is the end of the Beatles reissue remix road, it's a fitting place to stop...
