The Beatles go naked.
I’m not sure how many people watched the HBO movie about Phil Spector, the music producer who is famous for his Wall of Sound. Al Pacino played the eccentric who is currently in prison for murder.
In his heyday, Spector wrote and produced many Top 40 hits in the 1960s including Unchained Melody by the Righteous Brothers. He worked with just about everyone. He was a buddy of John Lennon and George Harrison. But not Paul McCartney.
Although the album Let It Be was a huge success, McCartney has always claimed Spector ruined it. One might say Paul would loved to have Phil convicted of murdering the LP. Reportedly, he loathed Spector’s syrupy overdubbing on The Long and Winding Road. Shortly after he heard it, he quit the band.
While waiting for Let It Be to be released, the boys went back in the studio with George Martin and recorded their last LP Abbey Road. It was released before Let It Be.
Let It Be had been intended to be retro Beatles with no studio effects or overdubbing. Now, Let It Be… Naked, has been released release on the iTunes Store.
