Ha! Yes, the "Long and Winding Road" is almost tolerable now!
The addition of "Don't Let Me Down" raises the real estate and the new song order really improves things. I marvel at how bringing up a guitar part or a harmony drastically changes things.
Phil Spector produced the Lennon version of "The Plastic Ono Band" and that's a great, raw, stark production. I heard Ringo in an interview say Spector arrived late and the group had already formulated the sound.
And the Ramones record "End of the Century" ain't bad either... but that said, all the Spector-isms on "Let It Be- Naked" are thankfully- gone.
PS- I'd love to hear "The Art of Dying" stripped down. That Clapton guitar intro and break is one for the ages... and those dense horns muck the song up!
