The Beatles Get Back to Let It Be With Special Edition Releases

This year’s Beatles release is for their final 1970 record, Let It Be, including special edition packages available on October 15. Beatlemaniacs can now hear exclusive session recordings, rehearsals, studio jams, and three newly remixed tracks, “Let It Be,” “Don’t Let Me Down,” and “For You Blue.”

There are three different special edition packages, super deluxe, deluxe and standard. All of the releases include a new stereo mix of the album, sourced directly from the original sessions and infamous rooftop performance eight-track tapes. For those indulging in the super deluxe, it features a four-track Let It Be EP, 27 previously unreleased session recordings, and the never before heard 14-track Get Back stereo LP mix compiled by Beatles’ engineer Glyn Johns in 1969.

The Beatles started recording Let It Be in early 1969, but paused the project to record and release Abbey Road that year. It wasn’t until May 8, 1970 that Let It Be was issued, along with the Let It Be film. The original film conveyed a sadder outlook of the time Let It Be was being recorded, as its release coincided with the band breaking up. While the new film, along with a new series and book, reveal happier archives and memories of The Beatles and recording process.

“I had always thought the original film Let It Be was pretty sad as it dealt with the break-up of our band, but the new film shows the camaraderie and love the four of us had between us,” writes Paul McCartney in the Let It Be Special Edition book foreword. “It also shows the wonderful times we had together, and combined with the newly remastered Let It Be album, stands as a powerful reminder of this time. It’s how I want to remember The Beatles.”
