Let It Be Super Deluxe Set

Unboxing: The Beatles’ LET IT BE Super Deluxe Edition

After a long and winding road, The Beatles have finally released their Let It Be Super Deluxe Edition box set. The must-have collection features an illustrated book with rare and unreleased photos by Linda McCartney and Ethan A. Russell. It also contains a foreward by Paul McCartney, an introduction by Giles Martin, and a remembrance by Glyn Johns alongside detailed track notes from Kevin Howlett and an essay from John Harris, exploring the Let It Be sessions’ myths vs. fact. Music fans may feel overwhelmed by all the content to explore–handwritten lyrics, session notes, sketches, correspondence, tape boxes, film frames, and more.

New stereo mixes of the original album crown the musical side of the new set. Available as either a 5-LP or 5-CD edition, there’s also unreleased outtakes, studio jams, Glyn Johns mixes, and two new Giles Martin and Sam Okell mixes of “Don’t Let Me Down” and “Let It Be” to explore.

That Shelf Managing Editor Jason Gorber takes a look at the entire impressive package below:
