 Alan W. Pollack's Notes on "Let It Be"   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
But, "Let It Be", with its quaint, diatonic style, its inclusion of pseudo-religious imagery in the lyrics, and its lingering afterglow of having stated some mysterious truth, earns it a unique, high place in Macca's songbook, a niche that it shares, perhaps alone, with "Hey Jude".
The Spectorized "Let It Be" album track features a different guitar solo, the brass, marracas, cymbals and original bass part mixed very loud, additional lead guitar licks in the final sections of the track, a different drumming pattern on the cymbals, and an additional refrain section tacked on before the bitter end.
Indeed, the truly sublime appeal of "Let It Be" as well as LVB's Opus 135 is in the extent to which each encourages us toward a vivid foretaste of that blessed state in which both desires converge and become one and the same.

 The Beatles - Let It Be... Naked CD review
Let It Be… Naked has an entirely different running order than the original album, which was originally released in May of 1970, as well as the first pressing of the CD, which was released in 1990.
“Let It Be” is now the final song on the album (where I’ve always felt it belonged) and, again, the beauty of the song is in the hands of the Beatles.
After listening to Let It Be… Naked, I went back to the original just to see how different the mix was, and came to the conclusion that I prefer this new release.

 Music Review: The Beatles - "Let It Be ... Naked"
by Merrit M., Grapevine, TX The history lesson "Let It Be" was intended to be a return to the Beatles' original sound as a simple four-piece rock band.
The Beatles began recording "Abbey Road," which was released before the Fab Four picked up "Let It Be" again, but the recordings needed so much help they called in Phil Spector to clean things up a bit.
The addition of "Don't Let Me Down," the replacement of two of the more sub-standard tracks from the original, and the changes in the order all help make the recording a consistent, understandable work.
