Published October 25th, 2016

From the time of its release, Let It Be was regarded as an aberration by many of those closely involved in its creation because of the involvement of Phil Spector in the final production process after the basic album had been recorded.
Over 30 yeas later, was advertised as “Let It Be as it was meant to be“, promising the original album as envisages prior to Spector’s involvement. In fact it was a brand new mix of the original tapes, produced by Poul Hicks, Guy Massey and Allan Rouse, all of whom had been involved in Anthology and Yellow Submarine songtrack projects. They created entirely new master version.

First pressing, November 17, 2003. Set include: ‘Let It Be… Naked’ album, 20-pages booklet and ‘Fly On The Wall’ 7″ single.

Beatles The Decca Tapes.

Published March 8th, 2015

Release, 1979. On New Year’s Eve 1961, The Beatles together with Neil Aspinall loaded their equipment into a van and drove down to London. Brian Epstein travelled by train. Arrived at about 10pm they booked into The Royal Hotel in Russell Square, and then went out on the town to join the New Year revellers in Trafalgar Square. 1 January 1962, the following morning The Beatles arrived at Decca’s West Nampstead studios to find that Brain Epstein was already there. Brian was annoyed, it was approaching 11am, the time of the audition, and no one from Decca had yet arrived. Mike Smith eventually arrived at 11.30 and The Beatles began to unload their equipment only to be told that it wasn’t required and that they were to use the guitars and equipment provided. The Beatles, now in the relatively calm and controlled environment of the recording studio, ran through the songs they had selected from their repertoire, eventually recording at least 15 songs, including three of their own that they had included despite Brian’s instructions. The session finished at about 2pm and Mike Smith, impressed with their recordings, told them there would not be an immediate decision, as that would come from higher above.

For the first time, all 15 The Beatles tracks recorded on the Decca studios were published on the Circuit Records in 1979. After five years, 12 of the 15 recordings were reissued as The Complete Silver Beatles (AFLP 1047), AFE Records release, 1982. And still after five years, 12 recordings have been reissued as The Decca Sessions 1.1.62 (TOP 181), Topline Records release, 1987.
