The Beatles - Let It Be | Special Edition Releases

https://youtu.be/Cmqd6PYAvJ8

Here are some images and track lists of the upcoming “Let It Be audio” releases for 2021, due out October 15. Prematurely posted on the Spanish Amazon site, we now know the contents as well as what the box consists of. Later leaks have given us info about the 2 disc version and the vinyl boxed set. The image below lists the contents of the “Super DeLuxe” 5CD + 1Blu-ray edition. The blu-ray has no video content, but high resolution files of the new mix “Let It Be” tracks, in stereo and several surround sound options.


The “Let It Be” album has been newly mixed by producer Giles Martin and engineer Sam Okell in stereo, 5.1 surround DTS, and Dolby Atmos. All the new “Let It Be” releases feature the new stereo mix of the album as guided by the original “reproduced for disc” version by Phil Spector and sourced directly from the original session and rooftop performance eight-track tapes.


The Super Deluxe collections also feature 27 previously unreleased session recordings, a four-track “Let It Be” EP, and the never before released 14-track “Get Back” stereo LP mix compiled by engineer Glyn Johns in May 1969.


Additionally, the Super Deluxe editions feature a 100 page hard-back book with an introduction by Paul McCartney, extensive notes and track-by-track recording information and many previously unseen photos, personal notes, tape box images and more.

 

 

The book has the following chapters:

• Foreword by Paul McCartney
• Introduction by Giles Martin
• Glyn Johns remembers
• Everybody had a hard year/Everybody had a good time
The myth and reality of Let it be Sessions
• What do we want to know
• Track by track
• Rehearsals and Apple jams
• Get Back to Let It Be






The book is of course not identical to the new “Get Back”-book, which is available separately, nor is it identical to the old “Get Back” book from the 1970 “Let It Be” boxed set.

No blu-ray with the surround etc mixes, we’re afraid – just like they were also missing on the vinyl editions of the recent George Harrison releases of “All Things Must Pass”. A shame that vinyl lovers will have to also get the SuperDeLuxe CD edition in order to enjoy the songs in surround sound.
