Abbey Road. Not to say that I don't like Let It Be. I love both albums.

Abbey Road exists, in one way, because of Let It Be.

The story I always heard... Let It Be was recorded first, but was such a mess, they were all unsatisfied with it, and so called up Sir George and asked him, make one final album with us.

Altho apparently the last ever "beatles" recording session was an over-dub that appeared on Let It Be. It was only George Ringo and Paul, John had already told them all to F off. Technically the last recording session with all 4 was a vocal overdub for something on Abbey Road.

Let It Be was ruined by Phil Spector, who was past his glory days at this point. He tried to apply the Wall of Sound to the Beatles, and it didn't work. The best tracks on that album are the ones where you don't even notice Phil.

Abbey Road is not only vastly superior to Let It Be, it's the best post Epstein album.

It's bc of the overall mess and breakup that Lei it be took like a year and a half to come out. In many ways it's not even a normal studio album. Legal debate between John's Klein and Paul's Eastman was awful. One day Paul called Martin for AR. Martin asked if John's in. Paul later said they went out with a bang. I hate it though.

I think the last time anyone was in the studio was 4th Jan 70, Ringo who did those terrific drums on Let it be song which i prefer a lot over the single.

Disagree. I prefer him over Martin's sterile ****.

AS was hard to guess, Let it be for me.

two of us
dig a pony
across the universe
ime mine my fave george
let it be
i ve got a feeling
long and wining
get back
I care about songs, not albums.

AR has great songs, but it's paul trying too hard that sucks. love/hate relationship.

Im a proverbial johnluvr and paulhater.
