Johns quickly emerged as a sought-after producer, in 1971 alone lending his studio talents to classic records including The Who's Who's Next, The Faces' A Nod Is as Good as a Wink to a Blind Horse and The Stones' Sticky Fingers.

 The Glyn Johns Get Back Mixes - Let It Be - Turn Me On, Dead Man
Johns made an effort to present the Beatles returning to their roots and playing without overdubs or studio effects.
Glyn Johns opened both of his mixes with "One After 909," one of the first songs John and Paul wrote.
Mark Lewisohn suggests that the reason Glyn Johns removed "Teddy Boy" was because Paul had informed him that he would include a re-recorded version for his first solo album, which would be released in the spring of 1970.

Johns surrounded Satriani with a group of heavyweights: drummer Manu Katche from the Peter Gabriel band, bassist Nathan East from the Eric Clapton's group and Andy Fairweather Low, also from the Clapton band, who served as resident rhythm guitarist, freeing Satriani to concentrate on lead guitar.
Johns also convinced Satriani to abandon his labyrinth of pedals and outboard effects and simply attach his cord straight into the amplifier for much of the album.
His 1992 album, The Extremist, was co-produced by Andy Johns, brother of Glyn Johns and a veteran producer/engineer himself.

 Get Back -Glyn Johns Final Compilation
Essentially Johns kept the majority of the already assembled album, altering it only in order to more accurately reflect the songs soon to be seen performed in the Let It Be film.
He took this recording, remixed it, chopped off the extended coda, and edited spoken chatter at the beginning and end to give the appearance that it was from the live rooftop performance seen in the film, which it certainly wasn't.
To do this, Johns mixed out the Beatles' own backing vocals, and all but mixed out the Gayleen Pease and Lizzie Bravo backing vocals (these were the two fans who had been recruited for the original recording sessions).

The performances on Real Live were recorded in support of his successful Infidels release, and while that album was hailed as a "return to musical form" (as described by Kurt Loder in Rolling Stone Magazine), critical reception for Real Live was generally mixed.

Johns utilized the recordings from this date but incorporated a spoken intro from January 22 that he edited onto the beginning.
This track was the one exception that Glyn Johns allowed on either version of "Get Back" to the original no frills, no overdub concept that the Beatles and George Martin had started out with originally.
I think that this 2nd mix is even better than the first one because Glyn Johns has removed Teddy Boy (which was recorded by The Beatles only as a rehearsal and not as a serious take) and that it features I Me Mine and Across The Universe.

However, delays in the preparation of the packaging for the LP (which was to include a book of pictures and text), and in the completion of what now was to be a feature film instead of a television special were cited as reasons for the lack of any forthcoming album.
The reference to Jan 69 is probably related to the recording date, not mixing, as this song was not given its first mix until March 1969 during Glyn Johns' first studio sessions after being given his assignement by John and Paul.
This is the final Glyn Johns mix that was rejected by the band, and is vastly superior to the Spectorized version officially released.

 Stereophile: Recording of February 2004: Let It Be...Naked
This, and a second Johns mix with a different song order, fell short of expectations, so eventually the tapes ended up with Phil Spector, who tightened them even more, shuffled the song order again, and added some orchestral and choral sweetening.
Brought to the surface again last year, the original tapes were found to be in good shape, and this time around the mixing engineers could use Pro Tools on a digital workstation to splice and dice to the nanobeat while correcting fluffed notes and combining parts from different takes.
When John, Paul, George, Ringo (and Billy) recorded these tapes, they were at their fuzzy peak, with long hair and beards sprouted all around.

Engineer Glyn Johns had assembled the first version of the album, and made some changes in this second version, which was the final arrangement of the album, and which was killed off when the band decided they just didn't like it much.
The standard Get Back bootlegs have traditionally used the first version assembled by Johns, and yet this version is the one that came closest to being officially released.
