The Beatles' Let It Be (33 1/3 Series) | [Steve Matteo]

The Beatles' Let It Be (33 1/3 Series)

The recording sessions for Let It Be actually began as rehearsals for a proposed return to live stage work for the Beatles, to be inaugurated in a concert at a Roman amphitheatre in Tunisia. In this thoroughly researched book, Steve Matteo delves deep into the complex history of these sessions. He talks to a number of people who were in the studio with the Beatles, recording the sights and sounds of the band at work - bringing to life a period in the Beatles' career that was creative and chaotic in equal measure.

Audible Editor Reviews

Having not performed live for several years, the Beatles were planning a late-‘60s return to the stage. They got together to rehearse and found the creative spark burned too hot...so they wrote, experimented, and wrote some more. The result was the album Let It Be, their penultimate recording, but their last to see proper release. In this audiobook - an installment of the august series of album biographies called 33 1/3 - author Steve Matteo recreates the recording sessions and contextualizes the album.

Performed by the kind, able voice of Kevin Draine, this audiobook recounts some of the well-known highlights of the period - like the impromptu lunchtime concert over London - and unearths some lesser-known insights, like the influence of The Band on George Harrison’s remarkable contribution.

    "Great Book"

    I'm a Beatles nut. This book takes you through the unknown phase of Let It Be, (The Get Back Sessions.) I know a lot about the Boys but this was a big eye opener. Listin to this Beatles Fan.

    "For Those Who Can't Get Enough Beatles Stories..."

    ...like me. Not a particularly insightful analysis of the Fab Four's most undervalued album, but pretty compelling.
