Description

As expected, The Beatles’ post-break up Let It Be album gets a Giles Martin re-mix and will be available worldwide October 15th 2021 in multiple editions. For the new release Martin and engineer Sam Okell produced stereo, 5.1 surround DTS and Dolby Atmos mixes. The new stereo mix sourced directly from the original session and rooftop performance 8 track tapes were “guided by the original “reproduced for disc” Phil Spector version.

The physical “Super Deluxe” collections also feature 27 previously unreleased session recordings, a 4-track Let It Be EP and the never before released (but often bootlegged) 14 track Get Back stereo LP mix compiled May 1969 by engineer Glyn Johns. The original Let It Be release was delayed when “the boys” decided to shelve the project to record and release Abbey Road.

Let It Be was finally released in the U.K. May 8, 1970 and in The United States May 18th to accompany the release of the “Let It Be” film. From the new release’s press blurb: “More than 60 hours of unreleased film footage, more than 150 hours of unreleased audio recordings, and hundreds of unpublished photographs have been newly explored and meticulously restored for three complementary and definitive Beatles releases this fall: a feast for the senses spanning the entire archival treasure. The new Let It Be Special Edition is joined by ‘The Beatles: Get Back’, the hotly-anticipated documentary series directed by three-time Oscar®-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson, and a beautiful new hardcover book also titled ‘The Beatles: Get Back’. The raw sources explored for the new projects have revealed that a more joyous, benevolent spirit imbued the sessions than was conveyed in the 1970 ‘Let It Be’ film’s 80 minutes”.

Let It Be Special Edition (Super Deluxe): 57 tracks
