I think I like the Naked one better. It just more pure, just the beatles there, no orchestrations.

Naked. I actually enjoy it from start to finish for the most part. Let It Be was a real tough listen for me. Especially those HORRID versions of "Get Back" and "The Long and Winding Road"...

Let It Be Naked is better than Let It Be knackered, in my very humble opinion! ;D

Let It Be....I heard the original Get Back album with the complete version of Dig It as in LIB, a different version of Let It Be than movie or original album with the original album cover about 15 years ago.

My vote on Let it Be Naked as well. Cutting off those sappy strings on The long and winding road is in my opinion one of the greatest improvements in modern music history...

I honestly love them both.  Although it isn't one of their best, the original Let It Be is one of my favorite albums.  However, I love the sound quality on Naked.  I agree that TLAWR is much much better w/o the strings.  I was so very disappointed with the "fly on the wall" disc though.  There were so many good things they could have done with a bonus disc relating to the Get back sessions, and they waste it on that little bit of gibberish.

Let It Be.  Here's why:

1) Removing the strings in TLAWR didn't improve it much IMO.  The strings added a big UUMPH to the song which was BADLY, BADLY needed. 

2) Let It Be on the original is way better.  I've said it before and I'll say it again, George REALLY is hauling butt in the original, where his solo is vastly superior to Naked's.  He is also heard at the end way better than on Naked, and I love the trumpet and orchestra backup.  It's just way better.

3) Some of John's songs were removed on Naked.

1) Strings were too sappy for me
2) Yeah, the LIB...Naked version isn't as good as the one on the original album, but that version was nothing compared to the single version on PM2...
3) I don't count Dig It or Maggie Mae as songs....

Well, Althoug I really love Let it be naked, I must say JOHN never got to know let it be naked, and he wouldn't have aproved maybe of the many changes. Take into account that it was JOHN who decided to nring Phil Spector in to do something with the amount of tapes they had recorded.

1) Lack of strings is too empty.
2) Since we're not including Past Masters, that's irrelevant :).  Not to mention LIB > PM2.  The guitar solo isn't as awesome in PM2.  Measure 3 of the guitar solo on LIB is soul-capturing, and the backup was much better.  It sounded more like instruments than one big sound.
3) Some people do count the latter.  Dig It I wouldn't count either.  And I was almost certain that they took out Dig a Pony too.

Let's also not forget Get Back: It was cut off horribly on LIBN, but LIB has the famous, "I'd like to say thanks on behalf of the group and our friends.  I hope we've passed the audition."

LIBN.

John said of Phil Spector's orchestration: He was given the sh*tiest load of badly recorded sh*t ever and made a great album out of it.

I recon the Abbey Road engineers did the same without sticking on any over powering strings.

In other interviews JOHN said Spector did his best out of the amount of crap the Get Back tapes had become.
