New Music Coming: “Let it Be” (Super Deluxe Edition)

The Beatles – Let It Be Sessions (1996, CD) - Discogs
(1970)

The “break-up album” by The Beatles. The movie that hardly no one has seen. The desire to get back to basics, even to their old haunts, old neighbourhoods, old houses, old habits, old songs, led the Fabs to the end of the line. Well, in my opinion it’s better to end at the top than fall apart as a group and end up as forgotten “has-beens”.

The Super Deluxe will be out in November. It includes, I would say, everything. According to Rolling Stone magazine:

The Super Deluxe Let It Be comes with a hardcover book featuring an intro from Paul McCartney, as well as words from Giles Martin, Glyn Johns, and Beatle historians Kevin Howlett and John Harris, plus photos from Ethan Russell and Linda McCartney. There’s also a separate (but essential) book called The Beatles: Get Back, which comes out October 12th from Apple/Callaway. The book has Russell and McCartney photos, text from Peter Jackson and Hanif Kureishi, but best of all, verbatim transcripts from the sessions, which read on the page almost like Samuel Beckett dialogue.

Included are songs like “All Things Must Pass”, “Gimme Some Truth”, and many other songs from Abbey Road and the original Let it Be album…

Well, although I own…and treasure…all Beatles albums, I await this one for the book and for the takes, new takes, takes we’ve never heard. And I want to know all things, all details about The Beatles. There is so much still to discover and the release of this album set proves it.

    This is going to be an epic release. Rarely do we get the opportunity to witness the artistry found in session outtakes. Unreleased songs, brotherly banter, creative disputes and rich history are but a few of the gems that this release will hold. I know that for you, this is like an answered prayer and I can’t wait to hear what you think about it. Be well, my good friend!

    What about the cinema veritee movie? It’s awfully interesting to watch and the music is great. It’s never been properly released. Are they releasing the movie too?

    • Francisco Bravo Cabrera · 9 Days Ago

      The movie is not being released with this set, however the movie is out there just hard to find and few have actually seen it. If you come across it let me know. Cheers

        Oh, I saw it when it came out, and I saw it once after that, also in a theater. I’ll let you know when it’s ever out again. BTW, there’s also an album of Let It Be Naked, without the added instrumentation.

        Yes I have the CD and it’s very good to hear “The Long and Winding Road” the way Paul actually imagined it. And thank you! All the best and greetings from Spain.
