The Beatles Let It Be: Special Edition: Super Deluxe 5CD + Blu-ray + Book Box Set

 

Special Edition Super Deluxe 5CD Box Set featuring New Stereo Mix of Original Album, 27 Previously Unreleased Session Recordings, Let It Be EP, and Never-Before-Released Get Back Stereo LP Mix by Glyn Johns Plus Blu-ray (New Stereo Mix in Hi-Res 96kHz/24-bit; New 5.1 Surround DTS and

Dolby Atmos Album Mixes) and 105-Page Hardbound Book!

 

The Beatles' chart-topping 1970 album Let It Be receives a range of beautifully presented Special Edition packages in October 2021!

 

The new Special Edition follows the universally acclaimed remixed and expanded anniversary editions of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (2017), The Beatles (aka The White Album) (2018), and Abbey Road (2019). All of the new Let It Be releases feature a new stereo mix of the album, as guided by the original "reproduced for disc" version by Phil Spector, sourced directly from the original session and rooftop performance eight-track tapes.

 

The Super Deluxe collection also features 27 previously unreleased session recordings, a four-track Let It Be EP, and the never-before-released 14-track Get Back stereo LP mix which was compiled by engineer Glyn Johns in May 1969. The set is rounded out with a Blu-ray disc (album's new stereo mix in hi-res 96kHz/24-bit; new 5.1 surround DTS and Dolby Atmos album mixes) and a 105-page hardbound book in a 10" by 12" die-cut slipcase.

 

The Super Deluxe CD collection's 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 The book is illustrated, scrapbook style, with rare and previously unpublished photos by Ethan A. Russell and Linda McCartney, as well as never before published images of handwritten lyrics, session notes, sketches, Beatles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 recorded in 1969, Let It Be remains the Beatles' final salvo due to its release in 1970 and the internal tensions that mark the album. Filled with a litany of underrated gems, it also hosts the universally recognized gospel-laden title track, on a par with the best material the Beatles ever recorded.

 

Controversial due to its involvement of Spector, Let It Be marks a return to a drier, back-to-basics live-in-the-studio sound. Seldom, if ever, were the Beatles so raw and direct, as the folksy harmonies on "Two of Us" and straight-ahead charge of "I've Got a Feeling" demonstrate. And the orchestral and choir arrangements on the Spector-treated "The Long and Winding Road" simply soar.
