The only thing I can say in Spector's favor on "Let It Be" is "Across the Universe". I prefer the Spector production over the stripped 'Naked' version. Otherwise, I'm not a Phil Spector fan.
Got a used VHS copy of Letter "B" about 15 years ago. Packaging was professional, but content was apparently an over-the-air copy. Ostensibly a 90's-era Australian Broadcasting Corporation transmission. Neither audio nor video quality was sterling, which kind of adds to the aura of this lost treasure. ... If L.I.B. is officially released, it'll probably be after Sir Paul's passing. He comes across as condescending-n-controlling, whilst trying to portray himself as still just one of the lads. Which adds irony to his eventual decision to be the first to officially leave the Beatles. But he kept the band together long enough to craft several classiques amidst all that chaos. Wasn't all dour-n-sour, though. What a treat to see John-n-Yoko waltzing to Paul's piano playing. And George helping Ringo with an idea which would germinate into "Octopus' Garden" on their "Abbey Road" album. Plus their final rooftop concert. "A Hard Day's Night" displayed the ascendant Beatles, whilst "Let It Be" caught them amidst descent. Brothers will argue, after all!!! ... 73s para Sactown
...suggests an argument in progress.
I may have seen a TV broadcast of this a couple of decades back.
If I could sum this in a short sentence it might go like this: After Brian Epstein passed, the cohesion was lost.
