Ah, Let It Be. The album that started out as Get Back, recorded during the absolute lowest of the low point of the Beatles as a band. A set of sessions and rehearsals, filmed for a movie, meant to be presented without studio flim-flammery and trickery (RAW Beatles!), went through a lot before emerging inContinue reading “We’ll Never Let Let It Be Be”
