Let It Be NakedLet It Be Naked

Let It Be Nackered, OR..

Beatles-in-the-Buff, OR..

Let it Bleed - The bloodsuckers are squeezing us again!

At the tender age of 12 I bought my first Beatle 45 single, then the album, then the Euro-mastered version, then the 8-track, then the cassette tape, then the CD, then the MP3 (well.. perhaps not the MP3). Last I counted I must have bought the same bloody song at least 6 times over thanks to technological advancements just so I could hear if John really buried Paul. I bought all their books and ventured out to the theatre to see their movies - a Hard Days Night, Help, Yellow Submarine, Magical Mystery Tour and Let It Be. It’s no wonder Sir Paul is a billionaire and half of it is my money.

Now they expect me to pay for the un-produced version of Let It Be Naked? So what will be next? Abbey Road Raw? No-Frills Sgt. Pepper? A Hard Days Night Out-Takes? I can hear Sir Paul now. “Yes, George Martin butchered our songs with his bloody over-production so I want the world to hear us au naturel.”

Don’t get me wrong. As a fan it would be interesting to hear how they sounded in the buff. BUT pay for it? Give me a frigging break. Haven’t they ever heard of PBS.org? Why couldn’t they have donated it to charity or show some fan appreciation and just give it to us? What was that Paul? Your stock broker said no!

Now that 2 of the Beatles have passed over to the other side, by proxy Sir Paul is for all intents and purposes The Beatles now (does Ringo even count?) Spinmeister Paul, (never short on gimmicks to stay in the limelight and keep the cash flowing), will keep us entertained for years to come regardless if he ever records another tune.

I for one will not buy Naked and I am disgusted with this blatant cash-grab. But then again.. maybe my curiosity will get the better of me.
