LP of the Week II

Recommended Posts

7/3/17

This weeks LP is "Let It Be......Naked" by The Beatles. The sound is poor compared to the released CD, but it's worth a listen. This is what the original LP was supposed to sound like without all the crap Phil Spector added. The Beatles wanted to get back to basics and this is the result, I think it's much better than the Spector released version. If you like this, buy the CD, it's much better than this copy on Youtube.

^ Awesome stuff! I suppose that is the "Recovered Treasure" bootleg CD ripped? Bold choice for the week! :) But a great and interesting listen for sure! Perhaps especially for the rather rare, alternative Tom Petty vocals/lyrics that is on there! Collectors stuff. 

For those not familar with it though: Quite a few of these cuts are from 1990, rather than 1988. This is especially worth noting since some of these takes are actually - IMO - preferable over the somewhat... thick... Vol 3, soundwise. Some of the harmonies and guitars are more lush and organic in the rough mixes and alt takes here.

Now, spin your body like a screw!!

Aww this is great Nurktwin!  On page 6 alone you've posted some of my long-term favourites. 

  • Do you take requests? If you do, how about Gram Parsons' "Grievious Angel" to tie in with Byrds' "Sweetheart of the Rodeo"? :wub:
  • Um, pop trivia quiz question because of The Easybeats (top of page 6) ... Any connections between the 2 bands The Easybeats and AC/DC?

^^^ Thank you so much Nurktwin! Hey, all nine tracks too, so you've posted the whole album!! Love this!!! Gram Parsons, & Emmylou Harris' voices harmonise together so well, don't they just?

In some early interviews, Tom Petty says he was listening to this. I like to think that's in part because of its feel & how well Gram Parsons uses his voice to convey emotions.  The song sequence, too, really creates a whole story, including finishing strongly  with "In My Hour Of Darkness". Imagine hearing that on its first release only four months after Gram Parsons died? Oh man, powerful.
