Description: The Beatles’ final official studio release, culled from the generally acrimonious January 1969 sessions that signaled the end was near. Though they put their differences aside long enough to produce the brilliant, fitting finale, Abbey Road, later in the year, Let It Be sounds more like the natural follow up to the somewhat jagged and disjointed White Album. The original intent was to overcome the animosity and create an album like they used to in their earlier days—quickly, casually, and efficiently (note: the LP was originally to be called “Get Back” in more optimistic times), but all the good intentions in the world at this point could not overcome the internal tensions and general apathy that was dissolving the greatest band of the sixties. Given the circumstances, it is a wonder that so much wonderful material was produced. Must be attributable to that value judgement which concluded the previous sentence, I suppose.

Though relations were forced, “Two of Us”, “I’ve Got A Feeling”, and “One After 909” come across as the most intimate the Lennon-McCartney team had since the days of “I Want To Hold Your Hand”, proving that the bond they'd formed was stubbornly inexorable. Individually, John exercises his verbose poetic license on “Across The Universe” and “Dig A Pony”; Paul’s “Let It Be” and poignant “Long and Winding Road” have become two of his most beloved and plaintive ballads; and George’s “I Me Mine” and rootsy “For You Blue” indicate his pending greatness that was the very cause of his discontent. All in all, a good effort by a band in terminal dire straits.

Condition: I grade very conservatively according to Goldmine Record Grading 101 Guidelines (http://www.goldminemag.com/tag/goldmine-price-guides)

Vinyl: VG (7.5/10); vinyl shows signs of light visible wear; minor scuffing and a couple noticeable scratches that do not affect the play of the LP; minimal surface noise does not detract from listening experience; rich red colored Apple label; this is an original 1970 pressing with an overall with a nice, bright sound.
Cover: VG (7.5/10); jacket shows evident shelf and ring wear (see pics), though construction is perfectly in tact—no tears, seam splits, or other significant flaws; gatefold is nice with a bit of ring wear visible inside; spine is clean and readable; LP comes in generic white paper insert.
