  • Beatles to Re-Release Stripped Down Album

    NEW YORK - The surviving Beatles are planning to re-release "Let It Be" the way they intended: stripped down. The album will have the same track listing, but it will not have the orchestration that producer Phil Spector added to it after the band broke up.

    Ringo Starr tells Rolling Stone it will be "de-Spectorized." Starr says it fills his heart with joy to hear it and it's a beautiful CD. The produced version was always a source of irritation to Paul McCartney, and Starr says he recently told McCartney how right he was about that.

    Starr says George Harrison approved releasing the stripped-down version before his death. The project has been underway for at least two years. The revised "Let It Be" will be out in the fall.

    The "Let It Be" movie will also be released on DVD, and this summer the originally 1996 "Beatles Anthology" documentary will also be released on DVD.

          I heard a bootleg many years ago. If you have seen the movie, with the rooftop concert and all, you wil have an idea what the sound is like...

            I like the posthumous Harrison release as well. "Brainless".
